My daughter ask me to buy her a can of pepper spray. Where could I find it without ordering it on line?

Just about anywhere. We carry it at Gander so I'm sure Bass Pro and other places would have it. Make sure you check your state law on carrying it though. Some states you have to be 18 and in other states there are certain formulas you can't carry at all. In TN it doesn't matter your age or anything. If you can get it and legally carry it get pepper spray that has both the Caspium (pepper) and tear gas in it. A small percentage of people are not effected by caspium alone and the tear gas will get them. Sabre uses both in their gas.

Hey dude any store that carries sporting goods should have it, my daughter asked for the same stuff so I got her a small concealable one in pink at Gander. I believe Wally World carries them in sporting goods also. Good luck and you gotta keep em safe, my baby will be getting her concealed carry permit for her 21st and the pink 40cal auto she has been admiring. My little pirate carries a pretty mean looking blade now when she isn't in school (they frown on self defense) and she is pretty good with it. I am proud.

Probably going to have to stick to your high end sporting goods stores. Gunshops most definatly will have it along with tasers. Make sure to get OC and not just mace. OC is much stronger.
I carry Punch 3 OC when I walk to class because here in TX I can have my concealed gun on campus but I can't enter actual buildings with it.

She should definitely experience exposure to the OC before she carries it. The above post is right, if you spray someone, you're going to get some on you, and you need to know what it feels like to prevent panic. It's possible to fight through, and you should know what it feels like so it doesn't catch you by surprise.

X2 - just a little exposure is inevitable with O.C. spray; one of the disadvantages. Insure she knows to clearly understand that prevailing winds will cause overspray onto the user.
The military made me get doused with copious amounts, then go through an obstacle course of training batons vs. punching bags... at Fort Sill, Oklahoma... in the Summer.
Given the choice of being tazed or O.C. sprayed again? I'd take two 5-second rides on the tazer versus being O.C. sprayed vigorously about the face - neck.
Needless to say, O.C. spray IS effective - yet should only serve as a tool to augment her egress and allow for her to gain / distance and separation from a potential scumbag.
Why? One inquires why? Because, AMERICA !!

I agree with most on OC being very effective( way better then mace). When I was certified to carry OC on duty I got hit with Fox Labs and it hurt me real bad. Took me almost an hour to get over it. It effects everyone differently , and In my case I dont want anything to do with it. I do not carry it on duty anymore because I feel it when discharging evertime. I prefer my tazer or asp when it comes down to it. Tazer changes attitudes real fast and they dont have to go in the squad after exposure ( at our department if we expose someone to oc they automatically have to ride the squad to the hospital.) protocol...... I understand your daughter isnt a policer officer and doesnt have an x-26 readily available, so OC is a good choice. Just make sure she understands possible outcome of using it.
