    I have a small canister of the Sabre Red pepper spray that expired in June of last year. So after a few beers, I figured what the hey. I wanted to see what the spray pattern was, and if it still did like the sprays in the past and infected the whole area. Yes it does.

    I live alone in a 1 bedroom apartment. So when I went to test it, I pulled back the shower curtain and just sprayed it on the shower wall. Huge Mistake. I've washed it down now. But I'm still coughing like a lunger and my eyes are watering like crazy. The gas chamber at Parris Island or several times during my service were nothing compared to that crap.

    Don't get me wrong though. Now I will relish the thought of spraying some miscreant that starts stuff with me. It's more effective than I thought it would be.

    Not to derail but.....years ago my a Great Aunt, who was a marvelous and funny person who had also lived an awesome life, was working the register at a restaurant owned by another relative. Auntie, about 85yo at the time, saw a wasp by the register. She grabbed the RAID to give the little devil a quick final spurt - unfortunately she grabbed a little can of MACE instead and either she panicked or the trigger failed as she emptied the most or all of the can and cleared the place of about 20 people.

    good times...

    i recall doing something similar a few years back; albeit in the shrubs outside condo. unfortunately i left the screen door open and it backwashed into place a lil' bit. male cat was watching me from behind screen and summarily ran upstairs and hid under bed. i think we were both dry heaving for at least 20-30 mins... lesson learned and then some.

    I sprayed a dog with Sabre Red while his owner, a County Deputy, watched. He told me 'Thank you'.

    I guess he was glad I didn't shoot the mutt.

    I want some of the stuff thats pepper spray And foam insulation.
    I figure if it sticks on real good and burns it can only be more fun when you try and peel it off.

    Yes it has as a matter of fact. The side effects are a bad blonde dye job in both sexes and Men get tacticoolitis and women have remarkable breast growth known as cantseemychoos.

    LOL. That was good and stupid. But, I was drunk, so it made sense to try it at the time. The shower wall seemed like a good place at the time so I could wash it down the drain.

    At least I did find out what the spray stream was like. It was a pencil thin stream of a thick liquid kind of like 90wt gear oil. It didn't really mist at all.

    Getting sprayed with mace sucks, Freeze +P felt like dipping my face in a fryer, eyes feel like they have sand scrapping your eyeballs and you will empty all your sinus right there.

    I had an AD of a canister years ago in my pocket. {The whole reason Galls got more from than the can of spray cost, was because I bought a case after the incident.} Weeks later, I touched the change in my pocket, and then rubbed my eyes.

    so you won't be showering for a few days, good to know. by the way you're officially uninvited to my next cook out mr. smelly.

    on a side note. it always makes me giggle when people spray themselves with this sort of stuff and then act like they're suprised at how bad it sucks. i mean come on, just about anything in the eyes sucks, like shampoo and that's actually intended to be used near the face. now take mace/pepper spray which is designed to deter attackers. did you think it was just gonna be mildly unpleasant? lol
