Yeah, I really don't understand using any of these sprays. Here in the Northwest it is extremely windy much of the year and I wouldn't trust it not affecting me as well. I'd rather give a woman a loud whistle for alerting nearby people.

That in combination with the word "rape" yelled will bring even the most ignorant self serving do nothings to the rescue. There are very few human beings whom will stand by idly without at least checking it out.

I'd put a can of BPC against anything. I've never been hit with pepper spray or mace or whatever, but Jesus H Christ does BPC burn! It feels like there is a raging inferno in your eyes and there is NOTHING that can be done to alleviate it. So many times I've gotten a gust of wind or a ricochet off some under carriage part.....

Fox labs 5.3 is one of the hotter OC sprays on the market. It is what my department carries and absolutely sucks to get hit with.

A choice between mace and pepper spray ...
I just answered my own question earlier this morning when I put in for an order of WildFire 18% (as opposed to the 2%) pepper spray.
