Do you carry pepper spray?

How do you keep your kids safe around it? I mean, where do you keep it?

There is a guy in my apartment complex that's making me uncomfortable. And my husband is in boot camp so it's just me and my son. It's not a dangerous place and the only problem I have is with this guy.


My son is 19 months and gets into everything. I know to keep it out of his reach (duh) But are there any extra precautions any of you take to keep it away? Is the actual spray child proofed?

I can never find pepper spray! So I carry a little can of arosol perfume. You know those cheap things from the drug store? Stings terribly and smells bad :).

Its illegal where I live but I have a dog spray that works just the same that's legal and I keep that. I keep it in my purse, DS it only 10 months so I don't have a problem yet.

I found it online at Walmart for about 10-20 dollars. That's a good idea. Where do you keep it?

They are not child proofed, but they have a safety just like a gun does. Go to an army supply store, or a gun shop.

I have one on my keychain, one in my car, and one by my entry way to my apartment.

The one on my keychain is the only one that my kids have gotten ahold of. Thankfully, we haven't had any accidents, but I just talk to them frequently about safety and how it could hurt them and we would have to go to the hospital, etc. It took a lot of talking before they understood and now they don't play with it.

I carry a firearm. F*** pepper spray. That isn't guaranteed to stop an assailant, but a .45 semi-automatic will.

When I'm out, it's in a shoulder holster. When I'm at home, it's locked in a safe with a touch-key combination.

No but I carry a stun gun.  My hubby got it for me to keep in my purse.

I keep it in my purse now. I used to have one that could hook to my keychain but I don't have that one anymore and haven't found a replacement.
