Pepper Spray- ideal for terminating most any situation!

 Are you tired of being scared all the time?  Personally, I took action and now carry both pepper spray and a stun gun at all times. Read on…

Another Brave Woman Fends Off Robber With Pepper Spray

It was uneventful Monday in the Hewitt, TX hair salon when a would-be robber stormed in to rob the place. There is something pathetic and even pitiful in the very idea to rob a hair salon of all places. It could be that the noticeable desperation of this act empowered a customer, a brave woman, to pull out her pepper spray and gave the attacker a good deal of face spraying. From this point on, the robbery did not progress that well.
The “robber” wore a black ski mask, so only his eyes were exposed. However, some of the spray must’ve got stuck in the mask’s fibers and breathing through it surely hurt like hell. Disoriented and in pain, he left the hair salon hastily and a Pontiac Bonneville picked him up and drove away.
The Police came a tad later to take the eyewitness accounts and report the event.

Pepper Spray FoxLabs, oc spray, 2 oz, Stream spray pattern $23.95

This unit is a 2 oz FoxLabs pepper spray unit with the stream spraying pattern. When deployed, it shoots pepper solution in a stream.  (Pepper Spray Center also has a “cone-fog” spray pattern that FoxLabs recommend for civilian use).

The stream has longer range but requires better aiming than the cone-fog one does.

  • 2% pepper spray (OC) Concentration
  • 5,300,000 Scoville Heat Units (Extremely hot)
  • 2 oz (56 gram) canister
  • 4″ H x 1 3/8″ Diameter
  • 18 ½ sec. bursts
  • 19 feet (5.8 meter) range.

I love hiking and going on walks so a “hidden” pepper spray is always in my possession. There are a lot of weirdos out there and I’d rather be armed with some pepper spray or a stun gun in case I happen to run into a nut job when I’m out & about. I just feel safer with a small pepper spray on the key chain and a stun gun in my pocket.

Phone: (800) 344- 0650


I feel really lucky that I’ve kept in touch with The Pepper Spray Center.  I like to shop (of course- I write a blog about shopping!) and it’s a good idea to keep yourself safe while shopping.  You never know who or what might be lurking in that dark corner of the mall parking structure.  I like knowing I can zap the “bad guys” with my stun gun– or spray them in the face with a quick blast of pepper spray.

I'm going to blog about my many shopping escapades. Whether it is a used book store, a thrift shop or a consignment shop-- I'm here to tell all about my experiences. When I find great stuff-- I'll let you know. I'm sending good karma to all the thrifty shoppers out there!

  1. Good idea for safety. I heard, any spray can give a bit of distraction to the attacker. After spraying, the experts say to kick at the groin of the attacker

    1. Pepper spray is great to carry! I hike a lot so I feel safer carrying my spray. I also carry a small stun gun. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Cheers!

  2. Frankly, this worries me. I do not want to go around armed with pepper spray OR a stun gun. I also do not want to go around afraid and paranoid all the time. If someone came into a hair salon where I was a customer, I would shut up and leave him alone. People out there are crazy. They would just as soon shoot you as look at you. I am not a law enforcement officer. Nothing in a beauty shop is worth protecting with your life. Most people pay with a credit card of a check. So how much cash could they possibly have in the drawer? $300? $500? Is your life worth a grand? Let him take the money and all the mousse he can carry. That’s why businesses carry insurance.

    I vote no on the pepper spray and the stun guns. Also on real guns but I realize that they have a different philosophy on that sort of thing in Hewitt, Texas. Just another reason not to live in Texas, if you don’t mind my saying so…..

    Kay in Hawaii (and staying there)

    1. Personally, I’m still going to carry my stun gun. I’ve had a few situations in the past where a stun gun would have come in very handy. Not at the hair salon- ha.

  3. I bought pepper spray not too long ago. I also bought some nice paper weights no would expect. You cant be too careful now a days. Great post 🙂
