My stepdaughter will be starting at Portland State and living on campus. Her mother asked if perhaps she shouldn't have some pepper spray and of course as the household Master of Weaponry I was assigned to research. (Before you ask, she's had no training with firearms, is not that inclined, and it wouldn't surprise me if Portland State doesn't have some fascist law restricting CCW on campus...and I'm not sure a dorm room would be the best place to keep a handgun. But I digress...) I personally have never researched pepper spray - opinions/advice/what to look for/recommendations? My stepdaughter is not the partying sort or the type to go looking for trouble (or getting into it) and will be prudent with her safety (as much as any 18yo college student is), so the "big percentage" safety stuff is covered. If anyone knows of a guide or good article that discusses pros/cons/types/etc. that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
