    the only time that I have even heard of it not working is when the subject has vaseline around his eyes.

    We carry an OC/CS mixture that is very effective. We have used oc and the OC/CS mixture many times over the years with good success. The majority of our problems come from individuals who are under the influence of intoxicants or illegal drugs. I have used OC at my present employer more than when I worked in L.E.

    In my 12 1/2 years with corrections, I deployed OC many times as did other officers and I have never seen it fail to get results.

    Yeah, for some people it's like that old peppermint aerosole Binaca.

    I had to deploy OC for the first time today--on an aggressive dog.

    It worked very, very well.

    I am certified with oc through Defense technologies. Ive only had to deploy it Twice. one time it was totally effective stopped the violent action and was able to handcuff the individual with no difficulty. the other time it failed to stop the person it wasnt an attack but an arrest scenario. I used oc and my baton and the guy was still able to run off. So far ive had a 50 percent sucess rate.

    I am certified in the use of OC , Baton, Taser, and firearm. I have yet to pull my OC out of its holster as far as i can remember. I prefer to use the taser as it is no Decon and easier and is more of a physcological weapon. The red dot worsk great. I have yet to fire a cartridge tho.

    I've only been trained/certified in OC spray for two months now, and have yet to need to use it on anyone. I have drawn it and threatened to spray a subject who geared up to punch me, though.

    The threat of being sprayed alone was sufficient to cause her to change her mind about actually striking me.

    I'm certified in the state of Maryland in the use of OC spray. I've used it quite often when I worked the high-crime areas. It was effective on i'd say about 99.999% of the people it was deployed on. Just sucks having to write use of force reports afterwards.

    I really find it effective in the really hot summer nights!
