    Alright, ive finally decided its time to get some pepper spray. Im 19 so I cant carry and I would like to have something on me that I could use to defend myself. Ive done some research before and ive heard that Fox Labs comes in high regards. In your opinion what is the best type of spray to use? ie;stream, foam, cone, fog. My thoughts were that the stream would give you more distance and a better chance of not getting yourself in the process. I got my first taste of pepper spray the other day and I would not like anymore to say the least.

    Does anyone know if this is the stream type?

    Also if there is any others that you could suggest it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You didn't mention where you are, so can we assume that you have verified the legality of carrying pepper spray at 19? For example, it was mentioned in a thread just yesterday (and I knew it from before) that in Massachusetts you need an FID just to carry pepper spray. Other places also regulate or prohibit it.

    Wiki:

    In the state of New York, pepper spray may be legally possessed by any person age 18 or over; however, it must be purchased in person (i.e. cannot be purchased by mail-order or internet sale) either at a pharmacy or from a licensed firearm retailer (NY Penal Law 265.20 14 (a)), and the seller must keep a record of purchases. The use of pepper spray to prevent a public official from performing his/her official duties is a class-E felony;

    So I have to keep the receipt? Do I have to keep it with me when im "carrying"? Seems like a dumb law.

    Suggest looking here...

    In the Non-Firearms Weapons category, there is this thread on Mace/pepper spray. There is also likely to be a few other OC discussion threads in the overall category.

    You may want to look into getting a rifle or shotgun for home defense if it is not legal for you to posses or carry a handgun in NY until you are 21.
