    I need to get a key chain type mace/pepper spray for a young girl going off to college. Can someone recommend a product or point me to a link? Pros? Cons?

    TIA

    Pro - Can be a useful tool in the hands of a trained person.

    Con - Can easily become a liability (to themselves) in the hands of an untrained person.

    Fox Labs makes good stuff, but I would invest in some self defense training first.

    adding to the question, OC, OC/CS or what mix?

    I have some old "clear out", it's an oc/cs mix. It's some bad stuff, not only does it burn, but you also have a hard time breathing when your around a cloud of it. It's great stuff for getting varmints out of sheds and such, but would it be good for carry?

    You may want to post/search in the Carry Issues forum. Foxlabs does have a good reputation. rw229 makes a good point about training. Situational awareness would go a long way.
