0134 – SDFAQ Should I Carry Pepper Spray?

In my FSDUC courses one of the most common questions I get is, “Should I carry pepper spray.”  For me the answer is pretty simple.  Of course.  Today let’s take a quick look at why and just a few of the MANY factors we need to consider.

Benefits of OC

  1. The probability of a less lethal encounter is much greater than a lethal encounter.
  2. Inexpensive
  3. Simple to use
  4. Can be a very effective tool
  5. Can be carried many places where a gun cannot be legally carried


  • Pepper spray is an intermediate weapon
  • Pepper spray isn’t 100%
  • Check into your local laws
  • If you aren’t martial about the way you carry OC it isn’t going to be there when you need it!
