    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    For regular self-defense use (VS LE Use) though, pepper spray has the issue of "blow back"; where you oftentimes catch a bit of it yourself, especially in close quarters, and there is also the issue of accessibility. Unless you see trouble coming early, getting that can out of a pocket, pack or purse in time to deploy it properly can be problematic. It's a great arrest tool for cops because we carry it on a belt holder and we oftentimes sense when an arrest isnt going to go well. For regular SD use I suggest keyring holders, belt carry when possible and a habit of having it at hand as a part of routine when in areas where you are more vulnerable.

    I have always been told soap and water. Saw a guy spayed in the nuts once. That guy looked like he was in the most pain I have ever seen somone pepper sprayed.

    before you all jump on the pepperspray bandwagon: what if you encounter a black homeless rapist in a biohazardsuit?
    then what?
    ever thought of that?

    Use your street sword with your strong hand to slash the suit, then apply the spray with your off hand...duh

    When did that happen to you and how much did you enjoy it?
    "We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.
    1) That it doesn't work
    2) That it does work"
