I have kept one of these in my arm rest of my truck for defense for the last 3 years. I replace it after a year, since I figure it gets over 100 degrees in the summer and as cold as -10 in winter. I have test fired each of them when I replaced them with the new one. They all worked, not the biggest one out there but I don't think it will ever be "not enough for one". I can't tell you its effec
I have never had a problem with any OC product made by Safariland tech. I have used them over the years, and they have never failed to work as claimed.
I havn't actually had to use this yet to defend myself so it's hard to say if it is effective or not. However, the size is compact but gives you plenty of usage. It has a protection flap so no liquid is dispersed accidentaly. The size is a MK3 which is standard for police officers.
