You don’t want your first exposure to be on the street while you are fighting a criminal. It would be a great idea if you had someone spray you in a controlled situation first so that you aren’t shocked by the effects when you have to fight it on the street. If you don’t want to take a full spray to the face, spray some OC onto a gauze pad and wipe the corner of your eye with it. You’ll get a good taste of what the spray feels like and still be able to decontaminate relatively quickly.
While I am a strong advocate for OC exposure as part of a full training experience, especially for law enforcement officers and military, one has to be careful how such training exposures are done.
Bad exposure training, and bad decon procedures, are common when people don’t know what they don’t know.
