Do you have a cite more responsible than Wiki as to legality there?Unless you are not a prohibited person, it is perfectly legal to open carry or conceal carry a Taser in California except in the usual locations(courts, airports etc.) No permit required, though it is a good idea to get certified in the use of one, just incase you have to go to court for tasing someone.
But it will blind them. Capsaicin causes your eyes to involuntarily close. If you could pry your eyes open you could see. It's also hard for someone to chase you if they can't breathe. A person is down for at least 30 minutes. It's small, cheap, effective, disposable.pepper spray wont drop someone like a taser hit will
From an internet site..and we know the interwebs NEVER lie.Pepper spray is ineffective against some people and can effect other people in the area including you. A less than optimal choice IMO.
I used to have a can of pepper spray that had a 20' range and was a face size stream instead of a cloud that can easly travel.Is it true that some people are not affected by pepper spray?
Possibly! What you have heard about are the man made chemical compounds commonly referred to as CS or CN. These are your tear gases. For example, military personnel are subjected to similar chemicals in the course of their training to simulate a chemical attack in a war time situation. After repeated exposure, a resistance is built up so the "gas chamber," as it is called, does not affect them as much. And it's true that some people are just not as affected as others are. Other law enforcement personnel, martial artists, and yes, even determined criminals can fight through the effects of CS or CN chemical sprays.
OC pepper spray, on the other hand, has the effect of putting a brick wall in between the assailant and the sprayer. When someone gets a full blast of OC pepper spray, they stop what they are doing. They stop what they are thinking. Even people, previously mentioned that could withstand the effects of tear gas, are very personally affected by OC pepper spray. This includes people who are drunk, on drugs, or psychotic.
Those "some people" not stopped by most pepper sprays include several members of my family. Also well accepted is that many people high on drugs seem imperious to pepper spray.From an internet site..and we know the interwebs NEVER lie.

I agree a Taser is better than pepper spray but i can't justify the price. However I'm sure you'd agree that pepper spray is better than nothing.Personally, I have no use for it and have no desire to load up a bat belt - I heartily endorse the KISS principle.
You may select one (1), remember your life my depend on it.I agree a Taser is better than pepper spray but i can't justify the price. However I'm sure you'd agree that pepper spray is better than nothing.
I have a simple equation to illustrate it.
Taser > Pepper Spray > Nothing

I UOC where i can, and if i can't I rely on my assisted opening Timberline knife.
That's great for VA but i can't carry a 1911 everywhere i go, and i can't afford a $1800 Taser. I guess the ultimate lesson is use the best you can as often as you can.You may select one (1), remember your life my depend on it.
b) Pepper spray
I carry a 1911, 2 extra mags, assisted opening knife, digital recorder, cell phone, sometimes a flashlight, VCDL info, OC cards, sometimes a BUG.
Bat belt? Need a dang porter.
This is what you guys need :-But it will blind them. Capsaicin causes your eyes to involuntarily close. If you could pry your eyes open you could see. It's also hard for someone to chase you if they can't breathe. A person is down for at least 30 minutes. It's small, cheap, effective, disposable.
For $1800 i could pay dues to the "Friends of Sheriffs" or whatever they'
re called that Peruta joined, take a CC course, pay for my CC license, and still have some money left over. :lol:
That has got to be advertising hyp - I don't know how any less lethal product/method that will accomplish that.
