What People Don’t Like
There are some common complaints about the Police Magnum OC Pepper Spray. One of these complaints is that there is hardly any spray in the canister. Consumers that have tested the spray were disappointed with how much they were able to spray. Some consumers were also disappointed with distance that the spray was able to reach. With an estimated reach of around four feet when tested, some users felt that they would be too close to danger before they could attempt to use the spray.
After reviewing this product and seeing all that it had to offer it appears to be a solid pepper spray. The formula is strong and would be effective if you are able to hit someone with it. However, actually hitting your target could be a problem. There is not much spray inside of the canister, and the way it sprays out does not cover much ground. If you are going to hit your target you need to have good aim. Now, this isn’t necessarily a reason to mark down a review of a product. Consumers that pay attention to the description of what they are buying would know that there is only .5 ounces of pepper spray. That means you do not have a lot to work with when you need to use it. If you start spraying too early, you are going to miss your target.
With that being said, this pepper spray is still a great nonlethal option to use. The product does work if you are able to hit your attacker with it. If you are looking for a pepper spray with a stronger formula and further reach check out our review of the Sabre 3-in-1 Pepper Spray
