Things I'm not allowed to have in the UK....
This was the triple action Mace, Pepper Spray and UV marker dye.
It combines OC PEPPER with CN TEAR GAS along with a UV MARKING DYE eeeeeeek!. OC PEPPER causes eyes to slam shut and uncontrollable coughing and choking. CN TEAR GAS causes profuse tearing, an intense burning sensation to the face and disorientation. UV DYE marks the assailant and may aid in identification once apprehended.
It's recommended for Bears! (and groups of men who are hassling you!). I'd never seen this product before. I thought it was only available to law enforcement in the UK...on checking I found the following..
It's illegal to possess mace, pepper spray or CS gas in the UK unless you're authorised by law. It is not available to purchase in the UK legally, you can have it imported from America although the seller will need to apply for an export licence and the licence will be refused if you just want it for personal use.
Hmmm.. and now I have three of these hand held sprays...and I've practiced against a tree! LOL..so beware if you see me with Gary...I'm armed and potentionally very dangerous, given that the tree fell over in tears and now shows up in UV light!
