The Streetwise 18 Pepper Spray 16 oz. Pistol Grip is one of the best pepper sprays for college students. Whether a young woman is walking home from a late night at the library, or a young man is returning home after a fraternity party, college students take risks when walking alone, especially at night. When you can’t have someone walk with you, pepper spray is the next best option. It is also an excellent self-defense option for seniors, athletes, public and safety personnel, and homeowners. We have a collection of wholesale pepper sprays for sale and one of our most popular is the Streetwise 18 Pepper Spray 16 oz. Pistol Grip. It is one of the best self-defense products on the market today. The design of bottle nozzle is made to grip like a “pistol” for function and ease. The safe and quick locking mechanism ensures that the unit won’t accidentally spray when not in use.
The contents of the spray are Oleoresin Capsicum and have a heat unit rating of 180,000 Scoville Heat Units. It’s been certified in an independent laboratory heat rating. Although many brands claim to be the best, we recommend you consider the unbiased results of an independent laboratory* that tests the heat of the pepper once it is sprayed out of the can. The Certified Heat Rating (CHR) measures how hot the pepper spray will be once it meets your attacker. Streetwise 18 Pepper Spray has a CHR of over 180,000 SHU (1.19 Total Capsaicinoids) making it one of the hottest, most effective self-defense sprays on the market. For comparison, the independent laboratory tested competing brands. They found the average heat rating to be 123,000 SHU, making Streetwise 18 over 46% hotter than the competition!
When it comes in contact with mucous membranes — including the eyes, nose, or throat — it triggers an instantaneous response. It causes inflammation and immediate expansion of the capillaries. Along with intense pain, the eyes may swell shut and the respiratory system can be disrupted, causing difficulty breathing. And if you are wondering how long pepper spray lasts when sprayed on an attacker, it can incapacitate a person for up to 45 minutes, giving you time to get to safety and away from harm. Another important aspect of our pepper spray is the UV marking dye. Ultraviolet dye can help police track an attacker. Even after the attacker has recovered from the effects of the spray, the marking dye is still evident.
Personal safety is on everyone’s mind. We live in a very active society and there are people going from one place to another virtually every hour of the day. There is also the need to feel safe as we are moving about. Hopefully, you never find yourself in a situation that will require you to protect yourself from an attacker or assailant. Many people have made the decision to carry some sort of self-defense product or item that they can use in the event they encounter a dangerous situation. We know that crime happens everywhere, and no one is immune from the possibility of being attacked. One of the most effective ways to protect yourself is with pepper spray.
The concept was first developed in 1870 in Germany and was basically mace or teargas. Interestingly, pepper spray got its start in ancient China where ground-up cayenne was put into rice paper and thrown into an attacker’s face during battle. In America, pepper spray was first used by mail carriers to avoid dog attacks and is now wildly used by police and civilians. It provides protection at a distance – creating a large “pepper fog” which makes it virtually impossible for the attacker to avoid. It also can fire at a range of 25 feet, allowing you to keep a safe distance while protecting yourself. It is very practical and protects against multiple threats like attacks, robberies, and home invasions. It has been proven effective, can be easily carried, and is non-life-threatening. Self-defense pepper sprays have multiple uses. It will take some time for the marking dye to be removed from the skin, giving the authorities time to apprehend your assailant.
