Cheaper than a taser,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SABRE Red Pepper Spray - Police Strength - with Durable Pink Key Case, Finger Grip, Quick Release Key Ring, 25 Bursts (Up to 5x Other Brands) & 10-Foot (3M) Range - Supports National Breast Cancer Foundation (Over $1.25 Million Donated so Far!) (Sports)
I purchased this item almost three years ago. It was tested only once by my girlfriend (now wife) at the time of delivery. It has sat idly on her nightstand for the past couple years.
Out of curiosity, I checked to see if it still worked. The video I uploaded shows the quality of the product after 3 years; as you can clearly see, the strength of the stream and the ease of use is more than sufficient. Hope this helps!
I bought this for my girlfriend. She has two kids and just got a house out in the middle of nowhere. When she first moved in to her place, she was always stressed at night and paranoid at every little sound outside. She would get mad at me for not being there every single night.
We went over several options for her safety including a gun, a dog, a taser, etc. With the kids, the only realistic options would be pepper spray (or a strategically placed baseball bat).
Her peace of mind, for less that $10, is why I gave this 5 stars. She said she tested it outside and the stream is very powerful. The child safety locks are great with the kids around and she loves that it is pink. She has been much more at ease with living on her own since she received the spray.
This was the best solution to calm her down, keep her safe, and let me keep my own child-less apartment; very happy with the purchase. I'll probably get her an extra one so she can keep one in the car and one in her house.

Glad to hear it. I don't want kids in my apartment either, maybe I'll spray the little buggers with this to keep them out.

It seems to me that if your girlfriend ever reads this review you will have to look for a new one... so you may as well keep the second spray for the next woman that would pretend she is afraid of living alone to lure you into living with her :)

Since this posting, I have moved in with her and her kids. She still keeps the pepper spray on her table next to the bed.
(I'm a heavy sleeper so if anyone ever breaks in, I'd be asleep the whole time).
