The Pepper Shot Defense Spray is rated at 2 million scoville heat units and made with a very fine grain that is more effective than the coarser grains of most other pepper sprays.
In addition to causing an attacker pain, pepper spray swells the mucous membranes, which makes breathing difficult, and swells the veins in the eyes, causing the eyes to close.
These effects last 20-30 minutes and cause no permanent damage. All sprays have locking actuators for extra safety. If you are attacked, draw your pepper spray and fire a stream into their face.
This can be done while remaining a few feet outside of their reach; a major benefit in escaping an attack. The best way to use the pepper spray is to keep the pepper spray closer to your body. You usually see people use pepper spray with the fully extended. This may give the attacker a chance to grab the pepper spray or deflect your aim. Keep it closer to your body and fire into the eyes of your attacker.
You can adjust your aim as you are firing. After firing your pepper spray into the attacker's face, back up, if the attacker follows, spray him again. Even if they are under the influence of drugs, the defensive spray will temporarily blind them and make breathing difficult. Remember, the aim is to escape, not to fight or to stick around and punish the attacker, he may have accomplices, he may have a hidden weapon.
So, spray the pepper spray and then run away.
