    I'm looking for suggestions on a good OC spray for my wife to carry.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Fox Labs and Sabre Red are two of the top brands. Stick with the MK3 (2OZ) size and the flip top with cone pattern it'll get the job done.

    BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR STATE LAWS ON PEPPER SPRAY!

    Many states limit the % of active ingredients and also volume of spray in the canister.

    And be sure to tell her that if she is attacked, the spray is actually about as likely to disable her as her attacker - maybe more likely depending on the wind. Then suggest that she just carry a gun, since every other weapon is designed to isnpire false confidence in people it will not help. (You'll notice the police use pepper spray only for situations where they are not actually in danger)

    we use the stream pattern to minimize spray back. with my research i went with fox labs. as far as the top goes i have both, the flip up in my wifes purse and the cop top for dedicated pockt carry. we also stay with the 2oz size.

    Got one of these for my sister who lives in the People's Republic of Maryland (Baltimore). Seemed like a quality item.

    If you don't mind going to prison for unjustifiably using deadly force or carrying where illegal.

    Don't confuse the uses of OC with the uses of a firearm. Neither replaces the other.

    The OP asked about OC. He did not ask for a firearm recommendation.
