Wildfire Pepper Spray is a very hot Mace Spray. Buy Pepper Spray to use as self-defence weapons, to safe-guard your family. Pepper spray Mace makes a great self defence spray “The Wildfire 18% formula is one of the hottest, and more importantly, one of the fastest reacting sprays we’ve ever tested. This spray immediately permeates the pores of the skin, closes the eyes, and inhibits the respiratory system. What makes this product so effective is the purity of the pepper used in formulating this product. Only food grade 3 million or 4 million Scoville Heat Units pepper used.” - Larry Harris, Washington Labs.
WILDFIRE™ is hot, hot, hot. Made from Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) pepper in a non-toxic, non-flammable, non-lethal solution pressurized with CO2. Contains a non-toxic vegetable dye to aid in assailant identification. Derivative of 3 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) - Law Enforcement Strength. This pepper spray causes pain, inflammation of the eyes, nose and upper respiratory system. Effects may last for up to 45 minutes. Instructions for use on each unit. MADE IN THE USA.
Almost all the self-defense sprays available today are a pepper spray, but some have mace, tear gas or dye added. So the decision to select a pepper spray depends on how and where you plan to use it.
The primary ingredient in pepper spray is Oleoresin Capsicums (OC). Manufactures will add from 1% to 10% of OC to their spray. This is one of the first decisions to make in selecting a spray. The amount of OC affects the use of the spray, more than the effectiveness of the spray. Very heavy concentrations of OC do not seem to work as fast as lesser concentrates do. Generally a spray with 2 to 5% OC is the most effective.
The Heat Unit Rating or “burn” is measured in Scoville Heat Units (SHU). For years individual companies have posted their own SHU values which usually were in the millions of units. Recently an independent laboratory did testing and came up with more realistic figures. With all that said it doesn’t matter if the individual rating is in thousands or millions. What matters is how it compares to others. This brings up the question why would you want the hottest self-defense spray available? Using the hottest gives the most punishment and longest affect to your attacker. However some of the lesser SHU rated pepper sprays have other specific uses.
Below you will find independent laboratory testing results from CHROMTEC, LLC:
Wildfire - 18% The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 242,000
Streetwise 23 - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 216,700
Guard Dog - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 174,200
Streetwise 18 - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 162,400
Crime Halter - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 158,900
Pepper Shot - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 122,000
PSP (Eliminator) - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 118,300
Sabre - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 91,500.
Cheetah - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 87,000
Fox Labs - The Scoville Heat Units (SHU) based on this assay calculates to 84,000
Distance that the spray is effective is very important in you decision as to which product should you buy. A key chain or pocket-size model is usually effective from 8 to 15 feet. A larger canister will provide up to 22 feet with many more 1 to 2 second shots. A pepper spray gun is effective up to 25 feet and has a laser pointer to put you on the target at that distance. That does not mean that the only good unit is a pepper gun. The key chain or pocket models are very easy to carry in any situation and works extremely well in close quarters or around groups of people. You certainly don’t want to spray the wrong person.
Pepper spray can be purchased in a stream, fog or gel pattern. The most common is the stream which is directed to the eyes of the assailant. In windy conditions such as a boat or outdoors the gel is not effected by wind as much as a stream and will work up to 18 feet. Also if your attacker reaches up to wipe his eyes he will just spread the gel around making the effect worse. A fog is used in two different situations. The first situation is crowd control, when you need the pepper spray to affect several people. The second is for animal control. If you are in an area with a bear of angry dog, you don’t want to try to get closer and spray them in the eye. With an animal’s very sensitive nose, a fog of pepper spray will send them away when they enter the fogged area.
Now the first rule of self-defense is to disable and get away to safety. Once you use a self-defense spray, do not hang around to see how effective it is. Escape to the safety, and if possible summons the police. This brings up another feature of some sprays. There are triple-action sprays that contain OC pepper, CN tear gas and UV dye marker. The OC pepper causes the eyes to slam shut and the victim to have uncontrollable choking, while the CN tear gas causes profuse tearing and burning sensation on the face. If the police apprehend a suspect they can use a black light to see the UV dye for proof.
The best feature of a self-defense spray is that it is non-lethal and you should have no hesitation to use this means of self-defense. Remember the 3 R’s, Recognition, Reaction and Run, and you will not be a victim.

After spending nine years in the US Marines I thought I would never use an acronym again, much less create one. If the acronym is enough to trigger your instincts, than it has served its purpose.
Self-defense against attackers, rapists, abusers and theft is a three step process. A.P.E. stands for Awareness, Protection and Escape. As we break these down into categories, understand that for each situation and each individual there will be some differences in implementation.
Awareness means that you have to be aware of the area around you. This could be your house, your car, your office or the street you are walking down. You must be aware if someone has intruded into your space that was not invited or welcome. We all have the right and freedom to go where we want, dress how we want and engage in whatever activity we want to. However we don’t want too purposely put ourselves in a place or situation that is dangerous. When walking or jogging, keep your head held high and constantly survey the area. Avoid conflicts with unknown persons and move at a quick pace. In your car keep your doors locked and stay on safe streets, being aware of any unusual traffic or people. At home doors should be locked garages closed and window alarms and motion detectors should be set. CCTV video surveillance can help to monitor your house and yard while you are there or on your smart phone or tablet if you are away from home. The idea is to be made aware of something unusual before it can become a problem. This also includes smoke and CO detectors that should be maintained in good condition with fresh batteries and detectors that have not reached their expiration date.
Protection can be as simple as a lock or as sophisticated as obtaining a black belt in Jude or Karate. Our cars and homes should have adequate locks to keep intruders out. Dead bolt locks on the outside doors of your house and window locks on each window. Your automobile will come with door locks, but make sure you get keyless entry for your automobile. Approaching your car in a lot or at night, you don’t want to be fumbling for keys to open the door. Pepper Spray is a great deterrent to stop someone approaching you that is threatening or aggressive. Available today is a Pepper Spray Pistol that will be effective up to 25 feet and has a laser sight. This is handy if you have to repeatedly travel through an area you are uncomfortable in. A stun gun is great for using in a crowded area or when surprised from behind or while engaged in another activity. Today stun guns are so small they can be held in your hand comfortably. Self-defense training is usually available through your local health clubs, YMCA, YWCA or there are even programs put on by your schools or police departments. If you don’t readily find classes in your area, make a visit to your local police station and I’m sure they will help you find a class. Pepper spray can come in many forms such as a key chain model, lipstick or to look like a pen. Stun guns can also be a flashlight or baton. There are many different things that you can use for self-defense such as a good solid flashlight, baton, kubaton or your knee or shoe to kick or stomp on the foot of an assailant. Whatever you choose to protect yourself, carry it at all times and study any materials that will instruct you in proper use, disposal and expiration.
Escape may be two things. You may escape a situation by using pepper spray or a stun gun and then running away. Or you may be in your home and summons the police who will come and remove the criminal, thus allowing you to escape harm or loss. Remember whatever the situation you are not expected to subdue, arrest and detain a criminal. Your goal is to protect yourself and your family and ESCAPE! The effects of a stun gun or pepper spray may only last 15 to 20 seconds, which is enough time to get to safety and summons help. The last thing you want to do is shock or spray someone and hang around to see what happens next. Your attacker will now be very angry. In most cases once you show or use your defense weapon your attacker will be running in the opposite direction, but do not count on that happening. If you are outdoors and near your car, get in and lock the doors and drive away to safety and call the police. If you use a stun gun or pepper spray call the police and inform them, as some pepper sprays have a dye that will mark the assailant. If your car is not nearby, look for a group of people or a store or house you can enter. At home you should set up a safe room with a good door lock and a solid door and a door brace. If someone unwelcome enters your house go to that room and lock the door, remembering to take your whole family with you, and call the police. To expedite this, you should conduct periodic family drills, develop danger and safe words and everyone should have a dependable flashlight and cell phone by their bed if they are old enough.
Being safe at home, work or play takes a little preparation, but is really worth the effort. Now you are ready to go APE.

MACE™ PEPPER GUN uses an advanced delivery system utilizing patented Bag-in-a-Can™ Technology.
This new system allows the pepper spray to spray like an aerosol in a continuous fashion from any angle, even when Pepper Gun is held upside down. Will Spray 7 blasts up to 25 feet.
Sorry, no Pepper Spray orders to New York or out of the USA
Depending on your background, when we talk about a self-defense spray it may be called mace, pepper spray or tear gas. However these are three entirely different products and one has even been removed from the market place.
First I’ll discuss Mace or Chemical Mace as it was known when it was developed in 1965. In 1965 Allan Lee Litman developed Chemical Mace for a division of the Smith and Wesson Company, a firearms manufacturer, as a self-defense spray to be used by the police. Mace Chemical is a form of tear gas mixed with an aerosol spray and designed to be sprayed in the attacker’s face. The name was abbreviated to Mace, however it was not totally effective at disabling a criminal for enough time to either subdue the criminal or to get away to safety. Also it was found to be almost totally ineffective against people who were under the influence of drugs, alcohol or were psychotic. Today the original Mace has been removed from the market place with a history of many police officers being injured when they relied on Mace alone to subdue the suspect. Today a spray sold under the brand name Mace® is actually an OC pepper spray that may include CN tear gas and a UV marking dye, and is very effective and should not be confused with the generic name Mace.
Tear gas was developed for the military during World War II and designed to disable crowds of groups of people also being referred to as riot control gas. This gas followed the “Rules of War”, and was used to replace such things as nerve gas or mustard gas used in World War I. Tear gas that was developed for the military is a white crystal in large a percentage and various other chemicals. Tear gas immediately causes the eyes to shut closed, watering of the eyes and burning, all of which is very painful. Tear gas also enters the nasal cavities and causing choking and a painful burning sensation. Later this was refined to be used in the civilian populace as CN gas or Mace which is in a much less concentrated amount than that of tear gas. Also when used in the military it was expected to be used against other military members that most likely would not be under the influence of drugs and alcohol. As mentioned before, it was found to not be a satisfactory agent for use against criminals and the general public.
Pepper spray was developed to overcome the short comings of tear gas, CN or Mace gas. While Mace was an irritant, pepper spray is an inflammatory agent causing immediate incapacitation. Pepper spray works just as well on people who are under the influence of drugs, alcohol or those that may be psychotic. Pepper spray causes inflammation of the capillaries in the eyes and skin and will cause temporary nausea, blindness, breathing difficulties and an associated intense burning sensation.
Today almost all commercial self-defense sprays are based on pepper spray and can have other agents such as tear gas and a UV dye agent to help disable and identify the assailant. Most of these pepper spray products are a convenient spray that is carried in the pocket, purse or car. There are gel sprays that overcome the effects of wind, Pepper Guns that will shoot a longer distance and have a laser sight, and a can that generates a fog that is extremely effective in crowds or against bears. Today these self-defense sprays are readily available and highly effective for non-lethal defense against rape, attack and robbery. They are safe enough for young adults in college and quick and simple enough to use for any man women or aged adult.
Like any self-defense product, you need to carry it to use it. This is facilitated by containers ranging from ½ oz. to 12 ounces that can be disguised as a lipstick or a pen and hung on the wall or a sun visor. The pepper spray gun is non-lethal using a laser sight for aiming and will shoot from 15 to 20 feet away.
It is legal for you to carry a self-defense spray, but you must follow local laws and restrictions on purchasing, size and shipping. In most instances you will not be allowed to carry a self-defense spray on your person in an airplane or out of the United States. If you check with your local authorities and follow the rules you cannot be sued for using a self-defense spray to protect yourself or your property. Ask a local law enforcement officer and he will most likely tell you he would much rather subdue a criminal with a defense spray than pull out a gun and shoot them. However there are times a gun or deadly force is required. Don’t feel a sense of power that will allow you to get into a dangerous situation, just because you carry pepper spray. Pepper spray is designed to be used to stop an unexpected attack and allowed you to escape and contact the authorities.
