    I know this is going to cause @jkcerda to face palm but this is a prohibited weapon here:

    Neither is pepper spray... you have to be one dedicated SOB to have that sprayed on you and to still carry on. My eyes water thinking about it.

    Oh fun fact, the other difference between self defense spray and bear spray.... is that the bear spray is designed to shoot out in a cloud/cone... I hope if someone has to use that stuff they are not facing the wind. :eek:

    We could both help our agriculture industry and reduce costs on our regime change wars by bombing with pallets of ghost peppers.

    Bear spray is not as potent as pepper spray. It just that there is a lot more of it at hand. :D

    A long time ago I had a phone installed and the telephone guy came out to do some wiring on the pole. He encountered a beehive on the pole and asked me to toss him up a can of something from his van. I did and he sprayed the hive and a bunch of dead bees fell to the ground. The can shot out a stream of about six feet. I don't know what was in the can but I imagine it would incapacitate a person.

    I carry around a small flashlight which will put out 3,000+ lumens. There are flashlights that will put out 10K lumens but they are larger. I think that would incapacitate as well unless the attacker were wearing sunglasses. Of course in the Live Free or Die state, you never know who's packing and that may be a deterrence in itself. I also live about 1/4 mile from a gun store.
