Pepper-spray is, in general, bullshit.
I was raped and killed by a negro. I tried to use pepper-spray but it only made him angry, which as you know causes negros to double in size. Now when I walk my 5 large war dogs I carry my briefcase which converts into an RPG-launcher, just to be sure.
Really though, if the situation warrents you pulling a weapon in self-defense you had better make 100% sure that you will still be alive afterwards. Pepper-spray is no more effective at PREVENTING and SURIVING attacks then carrying around a plank of wood, probably worse despite what fat men riding bicycles would have you believe.
it's based in fact though, oddeye is right. specifically if firearms are involved; it could be a somewhat solid defense against an edged or blunt weapon attack by debilitating the aggressor and allowing you the chance to escape. if someone is already pointing a gun at you and you temporarily blind them, you haven't done anything to impair their ability to operate the gun. you've greatly impaired their ability to aim the gun but considering most robberies and violent assaults take place when both parties are within 10 feet of each other, he's got 7-9 chances to seriously wound or kill you.
hooray self defense and martial arts discussion. seems like there's been a lot of it lately.
The best option for a non-violent takedown is Pure Moods and a backrub.

Pepper spray is inappropriate for this situation, a prison guard doing a test with his buddies does not have the same motivation to resist as a criminal, and with a plastic gun he wasn't given an opportunity to open fire to see how these weapons actually compare in a face off
Three shots to center mass is probably going to be a hell of a lot more effective than a little hot sauce. Shit, where I live, we spray OC on our eggs.
