Review of the Pepper Shot Self Defense Pepper Spray Pen
By Fabiola Castillo
This neat aspect of this pepper spray pen product is that it looks and feels like a regular pen. It even fits in one's shirt pocket and can be passed off for a pen.
The Self Defense Pepper Pen (PS-3) is made by Pepper Shot and is available to you from NinjaCOPS. The irritant within the pen contains 10% oleoresin capsicum (or 2 million Scoville Heat Units) with an identifying vegetable dye to mark your attacker for police.
This self defense pepper spray pen measures 5-5/8" in length and 1-5/8" at its widest girth. This product has an effective range of 6-8 feet so that you do not have to worry about being up close to your attacker. This pepper spray pen will put out between 6 and 10 one second bursts after which you will need to replace the pen.
Some of the physiological effects that this product has include immediate inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the outermost layer of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelid, (a.k.a. conjunctivitis) as well as excessive coughing. If your attacker has asthma, then this product will definitely put him down. Your safety must always come first. The perpetrator's safety should be a distant second.
The Journal of Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science published a paper that denoted that an acute exposure to pepper spray has no harmful effects, but that repeated exposure can result in chronic changes in corneal sensitivity. They also concluded that there would be no long-term decrease in visual acuity, or the clearness of vision.
These are some of the things that you must keep in mind when purchasing a pepper spray product from any pepper spray vendor. Consider the range and efficacy against the attacker as well as the safety measures for the user.
