A gun is always on my hip.
Recently I started carrying OC Spray as well. Last night the Saber Red I ordered arrived, and I took it outside to test and make sure the canister worked. The canister malfunctioned, and the OC spray went on my right hand instead of going out in a stream.
Annoyed, I came back inside and washed my hands with soap and water for the twentieth time. 30 Minutes later, I touched my right eye with my hand on autopilot, and my right eye started burning.
My eyes closed involuntarily; I had accidentally exposed my eye to Saber Red.
It was painful, so I went upstairs and grabbed a Sudecon Decontamination Wipes from my kit. Five minutes later, I could open my eyes, and the burning pain was gone.
Thankfully the Sudecon wipe worked.
A tiny amount of Saber Red was enough to make me cry and close my eyes for a couple of minutes. So I keep a good quality canister of OC Spray handy.
This tool is an excellent way to stop Social Aggression. However, if you are facing Asocial Violence, then a gun is better and more reliable.
Who here owns OC Spray?
Have you ever trained with your OC Spray or tested to make sure it works?
