Mace® Long Distance Pepper Spray Gel Self Defense
If you are planning to purchase pepper spray gel self defense capability should be your utmost consideration. In this regard, the Mace® Pepper Gel Distance Defense Spray Magnum-9 Model is simply superior to others. For starters, it can fire up to a distance of 25 feet, or half the width of a regulation basketball court. This gives you the advantage of being able to remain a safe distance from your targeted attacker. In threatening situations, distance buys you time – time that can be used to end the fight on your terms.
Maximum range is not the only way to measure defense capability in pepper sprays. There is also the stability of the pepper spray stream when subjected to wind. This is important to consider if you want to make an informed decision when choosing from liquid/foam pepper spray or gel pepper spray. Pepper spray released as a liquid stream, fog, or foam becomes an airborne, continuously flowing burst that is ultimately at the mercy of active winds. Pepper gel is heavier than any of these other types and is also released with great pressure as a thin, aerodynamic stream with minimal arcing. All of that gives it stability and predictability, allowing you to have better control of the substance the moment you press the trigger.
Control is a must if you want to responsibly wield the Distance Defense Magnum-9 Mace® Pepper Gel. It needs to be respected for what it is: a highly effective chemical weapon. As a type of pepper spray, police pepper gel is doubly effective because of its consistency. Thanks to its formulation, pepper gel sticks like glue to any part of the skin it makes contact with. This allows it to work more efficiently at immobilizing people, but what does it do exactly that allows it to instantly immobilize targets?
No doubt, the best pepper gel reviews are the ones that recall actual first-hand experience in getting sprayed. The reason there are not too many of these kinds of reviews is that the experience is a harrowing cocktail of pain, discomfort, and confusion. The first thing that happens is the profuse burning pain that only OC or oleoresin is capable of inflicting. This is followed immediately by swelling around the eyes, which forces them close. Tears and mucus proceed to flow uncontrollably, this being the target's body trying to defend itself from the irritant. Part of that is uncontrollable coughing. Choking will also occur.
All of these can last for an hour. While all types of pepper spray can administer the effects, with pepper gel, there is the extra hassle for the assailant of not being able to wipe anything off, ensuring the intensity of the effects for longer durations.
The Mace® Pepper Gel Magnum-9 might be one of the most powerful tactical pepper gels on the market. When it is combined with proper tactical pepper spray training, specifically on the use of pepper gel, you can have the aim, confidence, and stable hands to subdue would-be attackers from up to 25 feet away.
