Fox Labs Pepper Spray in the Cone Fog or Stream Output Pattern
Fox Labs OC (OC stands for oleoresin capsicum)is the best choice for pepper spray. The fog spray pattern is wider and makes it easier to hit your target in a stressful encounter. The spray droplets are also "atomized" and smaller than the stream making intake into the respiration system and mucous membranes of the target a little faster and quicker-acting. A slight caveat is that if outdoors, some amount of the fog also is subject to the direction of the wind and you may get some "blowback" if the wind is against you. It may make you cough a little but not nearly the effect as on your target. The stream spray is like a water gun, a pencil stream. It squirts a lot of formula in a more focused output. It may subject you to less blowback but also requires more accuracy to hit your target. Law Enforcement and security professionals tend to favor the stream pattern.
Aim for the forehead or top of the head if the target is at the far end of the range (10 feet+) to allow for ballistic drop off. Closer in just go for the eyes and face.
The formula is the same as described in other sections, the 5.3 MM SHU pure base oleoresin capsicum (oc) Fox Labs is famous for.

*FOX LABS does not use tiny nozzle openings that reduce the amount of formula discharged per burst. Other companies do this so they can make claims about more bursts per unit for reasons of marketing – to make their products sound better to those who don’t stop and think about what this actually means. The reality is that 2, 3 or 4 ounces of formula is the same volume regardless of whose canister it is in, so the only way to get more bursts from a canister is to reduce how much formula is being discharged per burst. FOX LABS’ units discharge as much of their famous formula as possible per burst to make sure you have an opportunity to stop the assailant/s as quickly as possible.
