Before today, I’ve never owned pepper spray. To me, pepper spray is something that is used right before a team of armed men raid a room, a police office would use on a deranged, unarmed person before slapping on the cuffs, or that a woman would use in hopes that she could reach safety before her assailant overcame the effects of the pepper spray and caught up.
The Salt Home Defense Gun
Salt has created a CO2 propelled pepper spray pellet fired through a gun that’s Matrix worthy in size. I like to call it the Salt Gun. Their main customers are those looking for a viable form of home protection and self defense other than using an actual firearm. As an example, I know there are those of you out there that just aren’t confident in using a firearm yourself and fear that your children will find a firearm in your home and potential harm themselves with it, either accidentally or intentionally.
Personally, I’ve always been the kind of guy that feels proper education and quality handling time with your children will solve most potential firearm related accidents. Plus, if I feel threatened by another person, I want to make sure they can’t get up after I fire at them…if you know what I mean.
But if you’re not like me and feel you’re not quite ready for a firearm in your home, this is safe for kids. Yes, it will hurt if shot by it. Yes, the pepper spray will burn if shot with it, but, it’s safer than a real firearm, for children.
Other uses for this type of a weapon would be limited only by your imagination. I can see it being used on that annoying dog that chases my kids down the street as they ride their bikes, or that drops a dookie in my front yard.
It’s a pretty large gun, so concealing it on your person or in a purse might be a task. It’s lightweight, easy to fire and launches the pellets at a pretty good velocity, reaching distances of over 150 ft.
Curious of your opinions. What do you think?
Again, this is just my review of a product I think could be of help in either self defense or pest control. That’s up to you to decide for yourself. If you’d like your product reviewed, I review pretty much anything from hunting gear reviews to hunting boots.
