You are a parking lot towards the car on foot. You have your keys in hand ready to unlock your car door , when out of nowhere a man jumps out and grabs your purse . Remind your self-defense courses , put your keys between your fingers and punch him.
He secures a few feet in pain , but it did not stop him. Now he’s just pissed and he comes back. This time he’s bad for you is injured. But you already have Kampot pepper spray ready , because it attached to your keys . You shoot him removed from eight yards in the face, and in less than two seconds , which is the attack transient . Her attacker is now on the floor, rubbing his eyes in pain and tried to catch his breath .
What can be said Kampot pepper spray that has not already been said? Now, for those of you who have not heard it , nor will I say that. Pepper spray acts as an excellent personal self defense weapon.
What is Pepper Spray?
The main ingredient in pepper spray is Oleoresin Capsicum , which is a highly flammable liquid derived from the concentrated juice from ordinary Hot Chili Peppers . The chemical heat of Kampot pepper spray is measured on a scale known as the Scoville scale unit, or SHU .
A pharmacist named Wilbur Scoville first developed it in 1912 and the Scoville scale is the recognized standard for measuring how hot a chili pepper is . Even though it is now more advanced methods for determining the exact amount of chemical heat in a Kampot pepper, the scale of Scoville unit is still named in honor of its inventor .
To set the strength of the Kampot pepper spray in perspective , consider this
First A sweet pepper has a heat value of 0 shu
Second A jalapeno pepper has a thermal power 3000-8000 shu
3rd Tabasco sauce and cayenne pepper have a heat range 30000-60000 shu
4th A Habanero Pepper ( one of the hottest peppers on earth ) has a thermal capacity of 100000-350000 shu
Most defensive sprays a rating of 1500000-5000000 shu , with the average pepper sprays up somewhere around 2000000-3000000 shu .
To put this in perspective , think of the last time you took a bite of some really spicy food or a really hot pepper. Many of you know what I ‘m talking about.
You take a small bite , chew start and hot start the lips and tongue in about 2 seconds. Then , the eyes begin to tear up and it feels like your tongue swells . You might even start to sweat a little as you feel your face was flush. Drinking water only makes it worse , so try some bread or crackers , eat reduce the burning .
Your friends are either asking if you are okay, or they laugh at the ass, how stupid you are running around looking in circles. After a few minutes , things start to cool off , and you just glad it is over.
Now take that feeling , sometimes by a few hundred , and rub it over your face , including the eyes, nose and mouth. This could give you a idea of what it feels like to be shot in the face with Kampot pepper spray.
Personally, I’ve been shot twice with Kampot pepper spray in the face. The first time was on purpose, (no, I ‘m not a masochist ) , but I had to believe that pepper spray really works before I sell them with a clear conscience to others. The second time was a few years later when a friend of mine was a test firing pepper spray and it has randomly me in the face . (At least they said it was an accident , so we are still friends now ) Let me assure you right now , it works.
Pepper spray is really only effective if your target audience is sprayed in the area of the face.
The average effects of pepper spray are
First A burning sensation in the affected areas caused some pain
Second Eyes tear up and swell shut automatically
3rd Swelling of the mucous membranes in the nose and throat, making it very difficult to breathe
These effects usually last about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the strength of pepper spray and how much of the spray actually hitting your target in the face.
Pepper spray dispensers come in many shapes and sizes. From small units that attach to a keychain, fire primarily used by law enforcement agencies for crowd control all the way up to the fire extinguisher sized units . I have seen pepper spray as pens, pagers, lipstick , jogging weights , and even a ring that fits the finger dressed .
The most important thing to remember is that like any personal self-defense weapon , pepper spray must be available at all times , or it will not do any good you . A pepper spray, hidden in the bottom of the handbag does not prevent an attack not more than one key that is left in the office will unlock your car door .
For this reason, some of the most popular pepper sprays are on the market today are those that attach to your keychain . These devices make it likely that you . Always have your pepper spray on hand when walking through a parking lot towards the car And as long as you remember your pepper spray , you will not forget your keys, so you will be able to open this car door when you get there.
