New Pepper Spray, Shoots Powder Instead of Liquid

The new PepperBall HotShot™ uses a completely different concept for shooting hot pepper spray. This self defense weapon or product, sprays out a cloud of pepper powder instead of a stream of liquid.

There are several advantages to having HotShot pepper spray in powder versus conventional pepper spray, which is in liquid form. Listed below are a few.
  • Reaches a distance of 12 feet vs. liquid pepper spray's average of 5-7 feet.
  • Creates a white cloud between you and an attacker, a visible barrier to help you escape.
  • Cloud of pepper powder shoots toward attacker, who immediately inhales it. More effective than liquid.
  • Can be shot sideways or upside down, unlike liquid spray that needs to be upright.
  • Makes an intimidating loud sound when deployed
  • Legal in all states except NY. Liquid pepper spray has state restrictions in NY, MA, MI and WI.
The PepperBall HotShot™ is small, only 6 inches long, it's light, just 3.4 ounces and very easy to use. It comes in a starter kit that includes:
  • HotShot™ Launcher Module
  • 1 Practice Cartridge (Blue)
  • 1 Hot Pepper Powder Cartridge (Red)
  • Practice Target
  • Instructional DVD
  • User Practice Guide
There always will be liquid pepper spray, but now we have the option of picking from liquid or powder form and it's always nice to have alternatives.
