Pepper Spray 101 - Facing Multiple Threats

There are over 1.25 million occurrences of violent crime annually in the United States. One of the scariest and most dangerous forms of violent crime is when facing multiple attackers. You need a plan to protect yourself in that situation.

In addition to facing multiple attackers, the attacker has an advantage. They know when the attack is going to occur and their action is usually faster than your reaction. And now you’re facing threats from multiple directions.

One of the most practical ways to protect yourself in that situation is protection at a distance. That’s what makes pepper spray so effective, provided it’s been designed to protect you against multiple threats.

What most people don’t realize is the average pepper spray empties in just two to three,1-second bursts. That’s not enough. You need a canister that has ten, 1- second bursts enabling you to test fire the product and spray it against multiple threats. Choose the closest threat first, spray him ear-to-ear, across the eyes if it’s a gel or stream delivery, spray up down towards the center of the face if it’s a cone or fog delivery.

After spraying the threat that’s closest to you, you’re going to want to move. Side step out of the way, once you’ve incapacitated him, pick a direction and move to safety immediately. I highly encourage you to choose a pepper spray with ten, 1- second bursts – which is designed to protect you and your family against multiple threats.
