Brass says it’s an experience he’ll never forget, and the empowerment aspect of Mace® Brand pepper spray can’t be understated. 

It instantaneously welds your eyes shut, it just attacks your eyes with a viciousness, Dan said. If I would not have had that eye wash, I would not have been able to do anything for a full hour. 

Brass says it was more powerful than he expected“It’s really, really terrible. It burns, not like a surface burn, but almost like it gets under your skin. I looked like I got the crap beat out of me.” 

Now Brass has a greater appreciation for what Mace® Brand pepper spray can doand the empowerment that it brings. Plus he has a better answer to that question that so many people ask him.  

Getting hit with pepper spray is like a million burning hot needles going into your face and eyeballs. 

Now that’s an honest answer, based on first-hand experience.
