    Anybody know how low the temperature can be for a can of pepper spray to still function?

    It's aerosol. You're gonna see a much stronger spray in 95 degree sun than in 32 degrees at night.

    The technical answer, then, is *no* function at absolute zero, as there's no molecular motion :)

    As to how effective in warm versus cold weather? That's for somebody else to answer.

    Carry it in a pocket, an inside pocket if you can get to it quickly. Don't leave it in the car.

    I carry a knife or two and some Fox spray. I'd rather use the Fox, but I'm prepared.

    These devices are not affected by heat or cold.

    Kimber lifeact (aka "Jet Protector", "Dogshock" and "Guardian angel")

    5X7 INCH HEAD

    10 feet from target...both rounds fired fast from a pocket draw, as if I really had to use it.

    Device makes no noise but a very quiet sping noise.

    Inside the device.

    Deeper inside the device.

    From L to R

    Tube for OC capsule and piston

    rws blank cartridge and chamber

    trigger and fireing pin assy & clip.

    Device works very well as far as function.

    Device is designed & made very well

    Aims semi-good and it really spits the OC out well.

    Interesting device ... IMO, as it uses a "captive piston concept".Same general design as the russian cyanide gas guns and others like AAI QSPR tunnel rat rounds,Russian PSS pistol,etc....

    OC blend is HOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Got a bit in the eyes as always seems to happen when playing with OC items.

    IMO..A fair device for use on dogs that chase me on my bike.:D

    As far as use on humans well it is still OC and it does have to be aimed ....so IMO Not a real good choice for use on people.

    Also,I thought it could maybe be mistaken for a type of firearm and get ya shot.

    As far as a great gadget for a collection :thumbup::thumbup:
