What does this security officer teach us about defending ourselves using pepper spray?
1. Pepper spray (also called OC or OC spray) can be a very useful defensive tool for non-lethal threats. I carry this one, and it's nasty stuff: http://amzn.to/1kxJpls. I asked the security guard in this video what he carried, and it is the same Sabre Red (just a different can). It can also be used against you in a fight, so you should know how to defend yourself if you're sprayed! Take a good course on pepper spray and how to employ it, and as part of that course take a dose yourself so that you know the effect it will have on you and how to fight through it to continue to protect yourself.
