OK, so I'm adjusting my gear, trying to make time go by a little faster, and all of a sudden i see a stream of liquid come from my hip. Managed to spray pepperspray inside the office, but luckily i stopped it soon enough, so it didn't have any effect. Good thing I wasn't pointing it my own eyes. Oops

I would recomend against messing with pepperspray, my buddy had some to deal with the ever present bears in my neck of the woods. He and I were debating spray VS. pistol for bear defense. I had the can, and went to simply remove the safety clip to demonstrate how clumsy the whole operation is, when it went off! Just a half second blast, and not directly at either of us, but the carpet still has a stain on it from the spray. Needless to say we got the hell out of the house coughing, eyes tearing up etc. The house was inhospitible for the rest of the night. Took 3 days of the windows open before the smell was gone. I would not under any circumstances want to be shot directly in the face with the stuff.
