    Specifically Fox Labs?

    I just bought my girlfriend some and I'm really wondering how effective it would be in stopping an attacker that was really motivated....

    Like would it just buy some time or stop them dead in their tracks?
    I've seen some dudes just shrug off pepper spray so I'm thinking about getting her a gun as well.

    yup. there was a fight outside a club the crowd got sprayed, myself included, burnt for like an hour

    would it stop me? it might make it harder for me to get ahold of the victim. But it would make me engraged if i had a grip on her/him.

    i would beat them brutally if i was in a fight, and had a grip on them. Ive won a fight with dirt in my eyes. Its not that much different. Painful, yes. but will i drop from it, doubtful

    Effect varies with people but a direct hit to both eyes can make the eyes shut for a brief period of time. Extreme burning feels more like needles stabbing you in the eyes. Hard to breathe and most people panic making it harder to breathe. You will probably have snot ropes and congestion.

    You can fight through it if you know how to handle it but no matter how tough you are it is difficult to keep your eyes open and concentrate on a target.

    Both times I got sprayed I had to fight off bean bag attackers and give verbal commands along with radio traffic. After which I got the hose.

    We were pepper sprayed on purpose during one of our martial arts seminars. It was on a volunteer basis. I did it... I'll say this, it isn't comfortable, but it didn't seem to affect me as much as it did my fellow instructors and our students.

    I helped write the Fox Instructor program. Here i me spraying a guy with a big can. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWGS4qrBCNE Pepper spray will not stop any determined attacker dead in his tracks although it will give the defender a tactical advantage.

    I've been sprayed in weapon retention training and I've gotten splatter damage incident to arrest.
    You can grapple and strike with a faceful of OC/CS, but your standup game would be severely compromised. Respiration and vision will be degraded.

    I'm a religious fanatic of Freeze +P. Get hit by it and become a believer.

    Will it stop someone cold? No. Will it give you the opportunity to get away or gain tactical advantage? Yes.

    CS is is a walk in the park compared to a level one OC contamination.

    In college several years ago some idiot girl's boyfriend sprayed a very small amount of her PS off in a fairly small and confined classroom and within 10 minutes everyone in the room was coughing and reacting to it.

    That was enough of an experience with it for me to know that I never want to have it sprayed directly at me.

    I hear ya, me too. In fact since the army Im especially sensetive to it for some reason. If I caught a whiff of it in the wind I would start tearing and snotting up like I just got out of the chamber.

    I disagree. I carried Freeze +P on duty and took a hit from it (its OC/CS) as well as the Fox that most of the rest of the Department carried. I had MUCH worse of a time with the Freeze than just the Fox.

    Not sure where the logic you are using comes from. Freeze +P has the same potency that Fox uses but adds the CS as an extra tool for putting the perp's mind somewhere other than on you.

    Wow, I didn't know that you'd get so pussy hurt over someone countering YOUR opinion which was stated as fact.

    If the capsicum content is the same per volume as a standard OC only mix (Freeze +P has one of the highest percentages of said capsicum on the "legal" market) then its going to be just as hot. The CS is just an additional additive that will help take out the lungs of someone attacking you for a moment.

    Freeze +P is more potent than Sabre's stuff and has actually drawn complaints from departments who claim that its too strong for the company's recommended decontamination procedure.

    Kids in my hs would spray that shit in the inlets for the ventilation. Not fun.

    It clears whole single floor buildings out rapidly.
