Stream pepper sprays shoot their content out like a water gun. This gives them great distance and makes them ideal for outdoor use. The Pepper Shot Pepper Spray Stream in particular reaches a total distance of 10 to 12 feet.
If you are using a highly potent cayenne Pepper Shot pepper spray like this, you do not want to accidentally spray yourself. Fogger pepper sprays generally experience that problem because the wind could blow the particles back at you. With stream pepper spray, this is no longer going to be a problem.
Streams go steady in one direction. They will not blow back due to the wind, and they often shoot in a very straight line. This ensures you will always hit an attacker instead of accidentally just spraying on their clothes. During a frantic emergency, you often get only one or two shots, so being accurate is a must.
Luckily, the Pepper Shot stream pepper spray gives you 10 to 12 one-second bursts. You do not need to hold down on the actuator, firing the stream like a machine gun. One short stream carries enough OC formula to effectively knock down even the biggest attacker.
If you are a part of the neighborhood watch or a security guard for a small establishment, this is a perfect small town security pepper spray. It contains 10% oleoresin capsicum, which means it can deal serious pain for a good 45 minutes but nothing lethal. With this in hand, you may never have to resort to more violent means of keeping the peace, such as using a gun.
The stream type also ensures a neighborhood watch member does not accidentally spray someone else, especially if there is a hostage nearby. You do not want to end up spraying a rapist and their victim at the same time. You want to spray only the attacker, and the accuracy of the stream type pepper spray is dependable.
One other benefit of the 2 oz. Pepper Shot is that it is a small pepper spray. The small ones are ideal because they are easier to conceal and much quicker to use. You do not want to waste precious time trying to lift a bulky weapon, and this spray is the perfect solution. It is small, it is accurate, and its OC content ensures any attacker will be down on the ground.
