Quantcast

Have you ever been sprayed in the eyes with pepperspray or mace?

I haven't. But if I want to go into police academy soon, I'm going to have to. Any one have this experience?

    Mace is banned here, and only the police carry pepper spray, and I'm not so stupid that I would give them grief.

    I've been pepper-sprayed and have gone through an Army gas chamber; the joys of growing up with military/police parents haha. It's not too bad, just power through. Good luck!

    I kept on a keychain. As I was getting out of my car, I accidently set it off. It got on my face near my eye, it really burned and I temporarily couldn't see out of one eye. Luckily, no one else was hurt. I stopped using it.

    I have been sprayed with CN, Mace and pepperspray as part of training. It burns and can take your breath away for sure. Its done to show you the effects , the odor and what it can do and teach you how to apply and to neutralize it as cops do overspray at times.

    Had to be filmed also if you as a officer of the law want to use it.The reason being is that the perk can't say you do not know how much it hurt, We had one officer who loved the stuff and took 3 cans in the face and used the rest on his hamburger, Amazing.

    Been through the Navy's CS chamber in both TI and NTCSD over a dozen times. It's similar to having a concentrated Cinnamon hot sauce crammed in your eyes and nose. You don't dare rub your eyes and if you shaved that day your face will feel as if it's on fire. I guess that's why they call it tear gas.

    First of all, congratulations on your decision to enter Law Enforcement.

    In the Academy, you will be instructed on the use of all lethal and less than lethal weapons that you will have access to as a Law Enforcement Officer.

    That training includes being on the receiving end of the less than lethal weapons.

    Even though my Department does not authorize the use of pepper spray, we had to indure the training anyway.

    Unless you are highly allergic to capstan (or any of the other ingredients), the effects are short and temporary, and the sting only lasts for a short time. Of course for instruction purpose, the shot is short and from a distance that disperses most of the spray.

    What you may wish to prepare yourself for is certifying on this:

    sting lasts instruction purpose shot distance disperses spray prepare certifying

    It's a shocking experience ;')

    But it accidentally sprayed near me, it's wicked. Burns eyes if it's in the same room with you.

    I did do a dumb thing though. Along time ago I ordered a small pepper spray to carry with me, mainly because I worked in a very bad neighborhood. I wanted to make sure it worked, so I shot it once in my bedroom right before I went to jump in the shower. After showering I walked in my room, and was instantly overcome by the pepper spray. I spent the next 10 minutes running in and out of my room, (holding my breath of course) grabbing my clothing for work. It would have made a very funny video.

    Had to un-mask in a 'gas chamber' full of CS in Army basic training. We had to tell the drill at the door our name, rank and social before he'd allow us to leave.

    The second that gas hits your face, your eyes and nose just gush and burn. Lungs and throat turn to fire. A few of the guys just lost it, but most of us were able to follow instructions with no problems. On the outside, they had us open our eyes as wide as possible and wave our arms in big overhead circles yelling "MY EYES ARE OPEN MY ARMS ARE FLAPPING!" a few times to clear our lungs of the stuff. After 10-15 minutes, everybody was pretty much normal again.

    I imagine police training will use pepper spray rather than combat chemicals, so you probably won't have the breathing problems to deal with. Just do what they say, and you'll be fine. They train thousands of people without incident every year.
