WildFire 18% OC Fogger vs Stream Pepper Spray
Nearly any can of pepper spray can take down an attacker if content were the only concern. There are other factors, however. You will need a narrowly pointed spurt of spray to stop a rapist cold, for example, while it will take a haze enveloping burglars to deter them. Do not think the same canister can produce a spurt or a haze, whichever you like. Undecided about fogger vs stream pepper spray, are you? The truth is you should buy both to be ready for different attack situations.
And then there is the question of how to fend off an aggressor with a high threshold of pain or one numbed by too much alcohol or narcotics in their system. Culprits like that require hot pepper spray like WildFire. It is a good thing the WildFire 4 oz. Pepper Spray Stream and Fogger Models provide defense from a large variety of threats.
Oleoresin capsicum (OC), the chief ingredient in pepper spray, often comes in a 10% concentration. These 10% pepper sprays amount to 1 to 2 million Scoville heat units, a measurement of spicy heat in food like peppers, which is pretty hot compared to 350,000 SHU for the habanero chili or 50,000 SHU for the tabasco pepper. WildFire Pepper Sprays have 18% OC and go up to 3 to 4 million SHU in the OC spray hot scale. You just know that is going to really, really hurt.
Pepper sprays create a painful feeling of burning on the skin and in the eyes, and you can multiply that pain a great deal with the WildFire 18% Pepper Spray Stream and Fogger. Its formulation will also constrict the airways to interrupt one’s breathing and inflame the eyes into shutting. However, the effects are non-lethal and lead to no serious damage.
The use of high-purity, food-grade peppers ensures both intensity and speed. Those intense effects pervade the skin as soon as WildFire Hot Pepper Spray touches, so that the target will be debilitated in no time.
Stream pepper sprays like the 4 oz. WildFire Pepper Spray Stream (WF-18-4S) release their content as thin jets of liquid much like a water pistol would. A stream can hit long distances, and it is not at the mercy of the wind so blowback will not be much of a worry. It is better for single than several targets.
The 4 oz. WildFire Pepper Spray Fogger (WF-18-4F) is one of the fogger pepper sprays, which emit their solution as a dense cloud that can cover more ground than other spray patterns. This is why bear pepper sprays are usually foggers. The fog is great against numerous targets and even when your aim is not very accurate, but wind blowback becomes a real risk.
A mugger often operates solo, whereas intruders are mostly two or three people working together. Get both variants if you can. The best stream pepper spray will be ideal to use outdoors and against a lone assailant, while the best fogger will be perfect indoors and in the face of multiple attackers.
