That's another reason I'm shying away from pepper gas. I've been hit by my own pepper gas just testing it. A swirl of wind is all it takes.People are under the impression that you have to hit the eyes of someone on the receiving end of pepper spray, gel what ever your choice to be effective! Horse Hockey! A direct hit to the chest will get to your lungs and face.
The police use pepper ball guns and aim for center mass the puff of pepper powder then travels to the nose eyes and lungs. And is very effective.
For those who have not been on the receiving end of a good quality pepper product I recommend you try it as in this day many assaults are with pepper spray. If hit you can't breathe or see, you salivate like a rabid dog. Your hands go to your eyes. Your lucky to find your butt let a lone draw your gun.
I recommend taking a hit to the face then draw and fire at a moving target such as a LEO B-27 target just moving on a clothesline right to left.
As my father was LEO and the director of the police academy for 6 years. I got to experience both pepper and a Taser for us regular folks your screwed. At the shooting range I was unable to hit the target after being sprayed with pepper spray. Just for clarification I did not get shot with the Taser as I was a civilian and only had it pressed to my back.
And the Taser dropped me like a rock.
Even my daughter and wife's personal Taser will mess with your day. The only difference that I noticed as with most personal Tasers you have to keep contact where the better ones that are available here and for the LEO use have the barbs.
Even those are sketchy as you need both barbs to penetrate the skin and if they are geeked up on drugs good luck.
I hope I have enlightened some here that has not had these products used on the them before. I'm sure most are going to still grab your gun. And hope they put their hands up and scream don't shoot. Only to have the 90 year old lady have a heart attack next to you. Remember you own that bullet the minute you draw your weapon.
If you can find a shoot don't shoot training course I recommend it. I watched a class of 30 cadets go through it and I don't belive even 10 passed. Also for clarification this was 25 years ago and I'm now 62.
Update I'm not opposed to a gun. I have more than I could use. And I'm not afraid to draw if the occasion occurs. I'm just saying right now they are destroying people's lives that legitimately have a strong case to use deadly force. Police have body cams and even with the bad guy walking at the cop shooting to kill as soon as the cop shoots or more than one shoots the sharks/Lawyers start counting bullets and it's never fair when you are a better shot then the bad guy. Read the news folks. Okay I'll step down now. Thanks for entertaining an old fart.
