    Kimber Guardian Angel- worth the money?

    Compared to $10 keychain pepper spray/mace?

    I see the Kimber's have a retail of over $40 and that's a big price difference. I see it showing up in gun mags all the time and I'm curious.

    Anyone got an opinion?

    Better than nothing IMHO,but probable not worth it.

    The primary problems with compressed-propellant pepper spray/mace use by a civilian is; that, under the extreme conditions of storage (purse, glove compartment, dresser drawer, etc.), the propellant leaks out... AND, the aim of the user sometimes directs the spray, in the tense moment of use, into their OWN face. The Kimber Guardian Angel uses a small explosive propellant (not compressed gas) to launch the spray...AND, the package configuration makes it almost impossible to shoot yourself without major effort.

    So yeah, I think it's worth the money for a palm-sized, two-shot mace derringer that can't leak-out of propellant before I NEED it. And it can pass for a cell phone in a case on your belt. $40 sounds cheap.

    I say no, buy some Fox Labs spray instead

    Sorry so late to the thread. I actually own two plus the practice version. I bought one for self and one for wife as we were travelling to out of state... We haven't actually shot the practice model, mostly because no time or laziness.

    Bottom line though, is that I do not carry mine and my wife does not carry hers. The clip is cheap plastic junk. Previously clipped to pants pocket edge (like a folding knife) it has come out of my pocket unknowingly to me. Seriously, I would have lost it 3 times in the 3 weeks I carried it. The clip is too thin to belt carry and not enough retention for clipped pocket carry. I would prefer not to fumble around for the thing if I needed it quickly so am not so comfortable with just keeping it in the pocket. Anyways, its a bit slippery and its as big as a pack of 100s cigarettes.

    On the plus side, I would definitely prefer to have the 10+ foot range of this model vs standard spray or stream OC spray.
