Obviously not “EDC for dogs” in the sense of dogs carrying a firearm. Although my daughter does insist that dogs are people too. Nope, we’re talking about carrying something to end a canine confrontation without going all SWAT kill. To that end you may notice that Dan P’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump features . . .
a GLOCK 17, some spare SIG SAUER self-defense ammo, a K-Bar knife, pen, tourniquet, flashlight and a Defense Technology First Defense OC Stream MK-6 1.3% Solution Red Band Pepper Spray (0.68-Ounce).
Now I’m assuming the spray’s to forefend four-legged antagonists, but who knows? Maybe Dan P wants a non-lethal solution to an imminent, credible, human-shaped threat of grievous bodily harm or death. If so . . .
is that a good idea? I mean if the threat is serious enough to spray — and you can’t escape — isn’t it serious enough for ventilation? And if you spray someone for a relatively minor threat, aren’t you running the risk of escalating the situation to where it becomes legal?
I don’t take my schnauzers to the dog park anymore, so I no longer carry pepper spray. Should I?
