We Love It: PepperBall Compact

This option launches a whole new option for times when you are limited to less-lethal choices.

Pepperball Compact

As we’ve acknowledged on this site, it’s not always possible to have a gun with us, whether because of inconvenience, local laws, or the fact that some of us don’t feel well-trained enough to carry concealed. We’ve also spelled out why you don’t have to be defenseless during times when you can’t have a gun. One of the easiest-to-use non-lethal options that can help thwart off an attack is a device that emits a pepper-based irritant.

Although there are countless pepper sprays on the market, we have discovered a convenient option to stash on your body while you’re hiking, running or walking your dog, which offers quick access and a launch distance of up to 30 feet—three times the range than other leading personal-sized pepper sprays—with the simple push of a button.

The Compact Self-Defense Launcher personal-sized pepper spray is the latest such device from PepperBall, known for its pepper-spray projectile series of launchers like the laser and flashlight-assisted LifeLite handheld launcher, as well as the pistol-style TCP multi-shot launcher. 

The Compact launcher works similar to others by Pepperball, firing a projectile filled with pepper irritant. We love it for its ease of use and because there is no need for an accurate aim to the face area, nor do you have to continually depress a spray canister. Upon impact, the ball bursts to release a potent pepper cloud that will quickly and effectively incapacitate a threat. Weighing a little over 2 ozs., the device is easily stashed in a coat pocket, purse or bookbag.

Although each Compact is designed for one-time use, reload kits are available. We also love it because it comes pre-loaded with one live SD PepperBall projectile and one N2 cartridge. MSRP is $24.99.
