I sprayed some OC anti dog spray that mail carriers carry into the wind once.

I don't ever want to get hit directly with the real stuff.

I got sucked into a small riot once, when a young rookie thought he would be a hero and not wait for more backing officers. I had to run into the pack to have his back. When the gangsters started tugging at our holsters, I emptied my entire can of OC into the crowd, and it worked great. Unfortunately, I also hit the rookie square in the face, dropping him like a big turd. I pulled him to safety and after a quick flushing of water into his eyes by paramedics, he was fine.

I'm allergic to capsicum so I hate the stuff. If my brother cooks peppers in the house, even with my door closed it starts to make me sick. Hate that stuff.

My father on the other hand was pretty much immune to it. When his people were training to use pepper spray, one of them had to hit him with it and nobody wanted to spray "the boss" until one of the women said "Oh give me that!" and sprayed him. He said he got hit with worse in 'nam. It pretty much had no effect. One of his people, nicknamed "Boonie Pepper Bert", got sprayed, licked her face, and then said "Hit me again! That was delicious!"

That sounds terrifying.
