Years and years ago, my mom purchased a pepper spray keychain (something like this: http://www.amazon.com/SABRE-RED-Pepper-Spray-Protection/dp/B000UVTDLG) for her three daughters, when we were all in our late teens. Mostly because we worked at the mall, and got out of work after hours, driving alone, etc. I carried it for a year or so and then stopped. I never had to use it.
Do you carry pepper spray?
If so, do you have a recommendation?
Her husband was looking into these models:
This one is not refillable, but hopefully it will not be used that often.
This one is refillable – and a little cheaper. But my first thought was that if someone mistook it for a gun, it could be more trouble. (There is a “hot pink” version that might help with that.)
This is just pepper spray in a can. Cheaper, but might be harder to get to and aim quickly. The first two are “gun like” to make them accessible more quickly and more accurate. (and presumably reach longer distances)
I looked it up and found this info on pepper spray in my state:
But I'm unclear if this means I can't carry it everywhere? I'm not wrapping my head around the listed restrictions.
I'm sort of leery of this whole idea, but figured I could get some varied opinions here.
