WildFire Flip-Top 18% OC Pepper Spray Gel
Pepper gel is a type of pepper spray that is in gel form. OC pepper spray gel has more than a few advantages. It has a longer range than most types of defense sprays. A canister of it can be fired from any angle. Other than stream or liquid pepper spray, gel breaks down into liquid the fastest. And out of all the types, pepper gel is the least affected by current wind conditions. It is a formidable, versatile form of pepper spray that can be useful in nearly all kinds of threatening situations.
The WildFire 4 oz. Pepper Gel has a range of 15 to 18 feet. This gives you great leverage when attempting to spray a person from a distance. If shouting a stern verbal warning is not enough to deter your attacker, you will still have 15 to 18 feet of distance to aim your weapon accurately.
The actual stream from a bottle of pepper spray gel is also more predictable. It goes straight in a thin line with minimal arcing, making it very easy to control. Perhaps the only disadvantage of even the best pepper spray gel is that you can't hit more than one target with a single burst. You can, however, keep pressing to produce a continuous stream aimed at multiple targets. The Wildfire 18% Pepper Gel 4 oz. model with Flip Top Actuator is certainly up to that task. It has enough for 20 one-second bursts.
With each burst, you will not have to be overly concerned about wind direction. The consistency of gel pepper spray makes it heavier, which means that only the strongest winds can affect its path, reducing the chances of you accidentally spraying yourself or your companions when you are being attacked. This is good because, based on most any actual pepper gel test, the painful stuff will stick to its target like glue. It is something that you would never want yourself or your friends to experience, especially by accident.
All 18% OC WildFire pepper sprays, while way hotter than the regular 10% OC formulation, are non-lethal just like all other pepper sprays. However, as research from Washington Labs reveals, WildFire is one of the fastest-reacting sprays in the market due to the purity of the peppers used in production. Its 18% pepper sprays can deal up to 4 million SHU or Scoville Heat Units.
This translates into all the usual effects of pepper spray, only much more intense. Swelling in the eyes, nose, and throat can occur much faster. So, too, can the shutting of the eyes. Because the formula is much stronger than in standard sprays, a person sprayed with WildFire hot pepper spray gel will produce even more tears and mucous to counteract the effects of OC or oleoresin capsicum (pepper spray's active ingredient). Also, the duration of these intense effects can be up to 2 hours or more compared to the hour-long ordeal delivered by just 10% pepper sprays.
The WildFire Pepper Gel also comes in 2 oz. and 9 oz. containers.
