You can get shot for having a gun-shaped object, though. And by the time anyone discovers it was pepper spray (and not a gun) it will be too late for apologies.
That sounds interesting!
True, but there is a certain amount of risk of that no matter what you carry. After all, people have been shot because they pulled out their wallets. It all depends on the situation, and having pepper spray is probably better than nothing in most situations.TomAiello wrote: ↑Fri Jan 31, 2020 3:18 pmYou can get shot for having a gun-shaped object, though.

I carry knives, and I don't get in to it with others. I stay away from antagonizing or making comments to strangers too.
Whatever you decide to carry, check your local laws and at least know what you're in for.
Yep, I've seen that. I have no experience with it or Sabre as a company so that is why I haven't ever recommended it. I know the ones I've used are reliable so I feel confident in a recommendation. In theory the combination should help in the case of a spray to the chest or throat area provided the pepper isn't diluted too much from the other ingredients.Joe, Sabre makes a pepper spray product that does contain tear gas along with UV dye. Their 3-in-1 spray.
You can buy those for home use too.
Yes, bear spray comes with a holster and I doubt it is discreet.The Meat man wrote: ↑Fri Jan 31, 2020 5:31 pmThe trouble with bear spray is that it usually comes in a container much too big for easy, discreet carry. I want something I can pocket without much inconvenience.
Of course I always carry knives too but as a SD tool I'd consider them absolutely last resort. I know they can be effective with proper training but that's just what I don't have.
Good point about staying away from trouble.
