Mace 10% Pepper Gel

Mid America Arms carries several types of pepper spray for personal defense.  Among these are the Mace Brand 10% Pepper Gel.  This from the Mace website:

Mace Pepper Gel is a patent pending formulation of maximum strength OC pepper (1.4% capsaicinoids.) The OC pepper is suspended in a sticky gel instead of a liquid. The gel formulation has several advantages: it sprays farther, is less contaminating to the surrounding area and the thick formulation sticks to an attacker’s face. Pepper Gel also contains an invisible UV Dye which marks an assailant and may aid in identification.

A Mid America Arms customer was attacked on a local campus.  The student soaked her assailant with the gel and it ended the attack.  The criminal was quickly caught with the hot pepper gel coating his exposed skin.

As with any personal defense item, citizens have a responsibility to carry and use defensive items in accordance with local laws and ordinances.
