Types of Pepper Spray Delivery Systems Explained
George Reinas for Cops Plus. I want to talk to you about some pepper spray. Now when we talk about pepper spray, stream is the most popular that's out there, and the most bought. Comparative to stream, you also have foam, and you also have cone, and you also have something called gel which is relatively new that's out there. I'm going to go ahead and talk about stream and let you know why it's the most popular. Kind of go through every single one, go through the pros, go through the cons, let you make your choice.

Now, when dealing with stream, it's exactly that: a stream of pepper spray that can be sprayed up to about 14 feet from you to the assailant. Now, stream is good because once you start aiming and actually go ahead and discharge it, you can see the stream of pepper spray, control it to the target's face, and it's pretty controllable. Situations that stream is really good for is basically indoors, a good amount of space in between you and the suspect, which gives you good reactionary time. If the pepper spray doesn't stop him, you can go to other means. It definitely is devastating once it hits the face and hits the nose and is breathed in by the user.

Moving on, we're going to go ahead and use the fogger spray as I call it, and the military knows it, otherwise known as the cone. When deployed, it's just going to go ahead and spray out a cone of pepper spray. This is great because, unlike the stream, you don't have to be so precise to aim for the actual target area of the face. The cone is going to basically spread out from the actual can itself, cover a wide area on the target. That's going to have particles in the air that are going to be breathed in, it's going to kind of linger around and hang around. That way if you don't get the target area, and he's moving around, once he actually gets into the fog, or the cone of pepper spray, it's going to go ahead and take out a full effect. Reason being why its not the most popular over stream is because, if used outdoors, blowback can happen, which is basically the wind blowing. That cloud of spray is basically going to come back and it's going to hit you, and you can feel the effects of the pepper spray, have the reverse effect that you'd really want.

Another means of delivery for your pepper spray is the foam or gel. Foam, what's great about it is once it's delivered, when they go ahead and try to get it off their face, or off their person, it agitates, and it actually heightens that burning sensation, which is what you want, which is a great system. The gel is similar, but that foam really gets it into you. Once you start agitating it, it gets into all your crevices and your pores, all the areas that you want to deliver the stuff to.

Those are the three basic types that we have here today: the stream, the fogger, and also the foam and gel. As you can see on the spread here, there's also different sizes. Different situations that you may have multiple subjects at once that you need to deliver a stream to, or a fogger system, you can go ahead and take the big streams and spray all at once. Basically when you have it, the trigger mechanism is push button, get your crowd that you want to go ahead and spray, and just go ahead and start dusting them.

That's the basic types of pepper spray that we have today. I'm George Reinas for Cops Plus. Hope you enjoyed it.
