Mace Tear Gas Pepper Spray Leather Plus Model
Tear gas and pepper spray can both be used for non-lethal self-defense. Tear gas is hard to control, but adding its components into pepper spray like the Mace® Leather Plus Model Tear Gas Pepper Spray with UV Dye fixes this issue. The Mace tear gas pepper spray perfectly combines the two.
The main difference of tear gas and pepper spray is that the former commonly uses phenylcyl chloride (CN gas) or 2-chlorobenzalmalnonitrile to incapacitate an attacker, while pepper sprays use oleoresin capsicum (OC), which is found in chili plants like jalapeno and habanero peppers.
These ingredients can swell the veins in the eyes, irritating them to the point where they shut tight. They can swell the mucous membranes, effectively choking a person. Both are non-lethal. However, pepper sprays are easier to control.
Is tear gas or pepper spray worse when it comes to self-defense? Pepper sprays have the advantage in practical use, but tear gas can sometimes be the stronger weapon. It is just hard to control, and you might end up hurting yourself with regular tear gas grenades.
Pepper sprays fire in either a stream or mist. You can easily aim where the spray will shoot. This is why only the attacker will get affected. Tear gas, on the other hand, spreads because it is often released via canister, so anyone within its vicinity will be incapacitated. Now, imagine those two combined.
The Mace® combination tear gas and pepper spray product gives you two for the price of one. You will get a unique formula that combines the strength of both oleoresin capsicum and CN gas for a unique spray guaranteed to bring even the largest and toughest attackers down.
Most attackers think you will not be armed to defend yourself. They will not know how to deal with tear gas pepper spray. When they get close to hit, mug, or rape you, all it takes is a quick spray to the face and they will be down in the ground. The excruciating pain can last between 45 minutes and an hour.
Even if they escape, they will have nowhere to run. Mace® Triple Action also uses a special UV dye that marks them. They will not see the dye since it will illuminate only under black light (UV light). This will help police officers and security guards identify the culprits.
This is crucial. You want to be able to identify the culprit, especially if they attempted to rape you in a dark alley. Police officers will be able to use the UV dye as evidence against them, ensuring they will not be able to go free and terrorize other people.
With the Mace® Triple Action defense spray, you get 5 one-second bursts that reach up to 10 feet. The spray is in a convenient leather pouch, making it easy to keep in your purse or pocket. It features a unique locking safety cap that ensures you do not fire it accidentally when not needed. Its key chain allows you to simply hook it to your belt.
