I am coming down the home stretch in assembling my daily carry equipment. I've gun the gun, knife, light and spare mag. The only thing left is OC spray. I would like to get some OC spray that is small. Something with a pocket clip would be wonderful. What I am going for is something I can clip inside my pocket (Like my knife and light) and carry discretely for when I am at work (Can't carry my pistol at work). Any suggestions?

I get mine here...
DPS Pepper Spray - Pepper Spray - J & L Self Defense Products

What ever you buy...buy two of them so that you can try one out.
You should know how far it REALLY sprays.
Spray it on a windy day, you'll get some back in the face, and you will want to know how that feels...can you still concentrate on SD issues with that happening?

Check with your laws to see what kind of pepper spray is legal.

I'll second J&L. Great company. I have bought dozens of OC keychain units from them. Their shipping is FAST! Their product is always fresh.
The DPS spray is identical to Fox Labs but, with 5' greater effective distance.
Phone your order in.

I was carrying a Taurus 709 but my wife fell in love with it. So I passed it on to her and it's her new CCW. I am carrying a S&W 908 and loving it. I am a lot more confident with it then I was the 709.

Is there anything by chance that is small enough to fit in a front pocket that has a pocket/belt clip?

I just put my DPS spray right in my pocket without any holder. I have never had a problem with the top twisting and spraying...I want to be able to get to it quickly...neither do I want it seen on a clip or a chain. OMO

Freeze Plus P is a stream type that minimizes chances of "blowback" in wind. Several major LE agencys use it.
Never carry pepper spray in a front pocket or anywhere near "the boys." It could be extremely painful, even with just the residue on the nozzle.

Hey all I wanted to add my 2 cents in here. I have been hit directly with OC and numerous times on blow back and none of it is fun. Cold Steel ( the knife company) has some stuff called INFERNO, it has black pepper granulates in it that make you have an inhalation reaction when it hits you. Its [email protected]$$!! I watched the video of it and it seems very powerful.It comes in a pen size clear up to the Dog The Bounty Hunter size. not super expensive either. comes out as foam and turns to liquid on the body, reduces blow back too. Just remember to spray and move, spray and move, spray and run. Check out youtube they may have some vids on it.

GET THE VEXOR!

You can get it with a case that has a belt clip.

I redid the key chain part at the bottom as I didn't like it on it. Now it is gone and is flush at the bottom. Once you have it, you just buy the actual canisters - $5 cheaper.

You want the 3/4 oz micro spin.

VEXOR IS THE BOMB!!!

I just clip it right to my belt in front of my holster.

My wife and I carry the fox labs personal pocket. I use the pocket clip, she uses the keychain. It's a shade bigger than a CO2 cartridge.

Personally I use OC Fox foam when I carry a container larger than a keychain.
Yes, I have read the comments that a BG will wipe it off and throw it back at you. I suspect that few BG that I would encounter would react that way.

I have a good friend who was in LE, and on a 4th of July party at one of the area lakes there was a disturbance that involved 3 guys. When he got the complaint he investigated, and found the 3 guys who were causing the problems.
When confronted they threatened to whip him and throw him in the lake. He drew his OC Foam. They said they were not afraid, and began to advance on him. He gave each of the three one shot, and each one immediately fell to the ground coughing, etc and was no longer a problem.

So I do trust his experience and since I seem to be particularly susceptible to the effects of OC spray I am willing to take the chance on the foam.

With the others at your disposal, why would you want OC? Anyone that has used it (myself included) can honestly tell you that you will contaminate yourself upon use (it's unavoidable), which lessens your ability to effectively employ any other tool in your arsenal...to what extent you'll be contaminated will depend on the specific situation of use and proximity.

My suggestion is you get a pepper spray formulated for use on animals. That will be two to three times Stronger than any spray made for use on people. Mace for example make "Muzzle" a small sized spray made for use on dogs. I sell it oftentimes for use on Coyotes, Javalina and people.
