I was watching season 2 of The Colony. (link to that below) In the first epsd they get attacked. The opposing group pepper sprays them. And wow they
were in a world of hurt! It got me thinking that if the SHTF that would be a pretty good weapon. It's small, light weight, concealable, and highly
Problem is it might be hard to find any. But actually I found out you can make extremely potent pepper spray at home with just a few common items. Now
again I'm only saying that this is something that might be worth considering after a total SHTF apocalypse where anything goes. And only for self
defense. But here's the video's in case you're interested...
home made pepper spray test.....
how to make the spray....
As an alternative to Habanero chili's ground up, you could use Cayenne pepper, or ground chili peppers (kind you find in pizza joints), just use more
of the pepper and less oil and alcohol. These are about 20% of the strength of Habanero chili's but easily strong enough to cause burning and
irritation if sprayed in the face. I did a tongue test and both hurt my tongue bad! ouch!
Habanero chili's ground up, this is the worst it would disable the attacker for at least a hour.
Cayenne pepper wouldn't do as much, it would just cause burning and irritation , as there eyes and nose would start burning and they might be
distracted just long enough to give you some escape time. Cayenne pepper example of potentcy....
The mixture could be put into any small travel spray bottle or even a small water gun. So after the zombie apocalypse if you got attacked by some
roaming morodors then you could wipe out your pepper spray and be like, don't mess with me ha ha
Or in case while your out in the wood hiding out you run into this guy...
Or if you run into a bad guy you give him one of these.... and then when he's distracted you go for the coup de gra....as demonstrated in this
