Pepper Spray

From Hammerhead Combat Systems - a nicely done piece on pepper spray - pro's, con's and training.

Pepper Spray (and firearms, knives, clubs, flexible weapons, and unarmed skills) is (are?) tools in the toolbox we should all have a grasp of. A well stocked toolbox is essential in todays age (as it was in the past).
Not everyone deserves to be shot - and if a pistol is your sole means of defense, you may be in for a world of trouble, from too much force issues to hesitation to use the tool at the proper time.
Plus, the more you train in the use of the tools, the better off you will be if they are used against you.
My personal favorite from the article:

And in second place was the advice to be sure to move after spraying the attacker, get off the X, and treat this as another part of your escape arsenal (not a stand there and admire the work the spray did).
