OC-PEPPER SPRAY 

Pepper spray, also known as OC spray (oleoresin capsicum) is a less-than-lethal chemical compound that irritates the eyes and mucus membrane causing tearing, coughing and temporary pain. OC spray is commonly used by police and military for crowd control, and personal defense, including defense against dogs and bears. It is an outstanding personal defense device for women, security personnel and anyone who wants personal safety with a powerful equalizer. The inflammatory effects cause the eyes to close, taking away vision. This temporary tearing, coughing and temporary pain allows the opportunity to escape or control your attacker.
