Pepper spray or animal repellent spray - what's the difference?

What is the difference? Virtually none of the biological / chemical composition.
With the label “animal repellent spray”, this medium does not fall under the weapons law and can
acquired and managed by every person, with no age limit.
The animal repellent spray is only for self-defense or emergency aid.
Important: If there is no self-defense, the person commits dangerous bodily harm when using animal repellent spray.

Composition; the animal repellent spray is obtained from the chilli or paprika plants.
Depending on the quality (dilution), an active ingredient OC (Oleresin Capsicum) is produced from the resin oil (oleoresin).

Depending on the dilution of the OC, there are different qualities available on the market.
These are given as a percentage of the OC per liter or 100 ml (degree of severity / Scoville scale).
However, the information on this is very different. Some manufacturers only give the Scoville value of pure capsaicin.
The US pepper spray Saber Red is regularly "awarded" as the most effective pepper spray at the largest gun fair in the world (Shot Show).

How to use pepper spray:
The usual cans must be held vertically with the spray head pointing upwards. Substance cannot work with the side or "overhead" position
effectively sprayed. Saber Red has the Crossfire cans, which can be felt in all positions.
It is important to use the thumb to operate the trigger; pushes down.
The index finger automatically pushes the target direction downwards; i.e. You don't hit the attacker.
So hold the animal repellent spray like the "thumbs up" position. Aim at the target with your knitted arm, enough distance to the
contaminating object and spray into the right head (mucous membranes). It is important that the attacker is observed when defending himself.

1. Is the attacker hit with the substance. 2. Starts a reaction; important: the attacker is stopped!

Always keep your distance from the attacker; e.g. the attacker continues to fall victim, despite the contaminated face - & gt; always keep the distance and
Continue spraying if necessary. Depending on the physical condition, alcohol / drug influence of the attacker or the quality of the pepper spray, the effect may be delayed.
We have not found any experience or information on the Internet of any reaction after the contamination with pepper spray.
Pepper spray always works; both when it is very hot and when it is cold. A distinction is also made between the various states of the substance to be sprayed.
Here is the liquid, the foam, and the gel. With liquids you can "aim" very well "ballistically" and the pressure, i.e. the speed of the medium are optimal.
The heavier gel, for example, is perfect for indoor use. An outgassing / volatilization of the OC is hardly noticeable and the
Contamination is very effective because the gel or foam foams when it hits, similar to shaving foam, because the particles of the active ingredient are completely bound to the foam / gel. The tough active ingredient (gel / foam) also sticks to the attacker for a longer period of time. The “stronger” fabrics are also more wind stable.
