Agreed QK - and thx Mike - of course - weigh it!!
I was in fact more thinking not so much of re-use after one episode - more just how long one 4 oz might last with near continuous use against multiple attackers for instance. Would One OC be enough let's say.

I think so.
The key is to hit them in the forehead, a 2 second burst usually is all that is needed. No sense using any more than that. Spray, take a couple of steps back and leftward.
Leftward..because most people that cant see will strike out with their right hand while stepping to their right while using their left to rub their eyes. Its an automatic response.
thats a "trade secret"...dont tell anyone I told ya...

The little Fox Labs keychain units are great.
A decent volume of material but, of course for a much shorter period of time.
The big advantage is that you have a unit right in hand with your keys...walking through maybe a dimly lit parking lot.
I bought a ton of them (25) since I am such a total chump...I give them away to people I like.
I never give them away to people I don't like because...they might squirt me in the face with it.

I use Fox myself. It works great on dogs. Last summer I went through 2 cans in three months.

Best aiming point and hitting point is high chest. Remember, the head moves independent of the body.

We used to do "high chest". It does make for a nice big target.
We had a few "sprayee's" get hit with a full burst in the chest and the spray just hit them in the chest and was absorbed by clothes. It didnt fan out and get them everywhere like it was supposed to. They start coughing and sneezing and it didnt seem to work near as effectivley as is should have.
So we started hiting them in the forehead..when ever possible. A good hit results in the stuff getting in their eyes and all over their faces. It gets the nose, the top lip and the more they sweat the worse it gets. It seems to work better...ecpecially for those that may be in an altered state of mind for one reason or the other.
We dont do the .5 second burst trick ethier. We use a full two second shot. We literally hose them down with the stuff. A 2 second dose leaves no doubt as to an effective hit.
When we certified, we had to count one thousand one ,one thousand two while getting hit in the forehead from about 3 feet away. I would like to say it was an eye opening expereince, but fact of the matter was I couldnt open my eyes for quite some time. That experience truly sucked.

I am sure the head shot works well IF your opponent will hold still...usually works well with handguns...IFopponent will hold still.
