Bouncer Spray

Postby doormedic » 07 Feb 2012, 10:33

Not sure if this has been covered before, I used the search engine and could only find the "Students warned not to use" post.

One of my colleagues carries this in his pocket with the data sheet that says its legal.

Looking on Police forums some of them have said they would arrest under section 5 if they saw a ds use it.

I emailed the met police and they said you can carry it but it must only be used in line with "Reasonable Force" side of self defence and you may end up in trouble if misused etc...

Does anyone else carry or has anyone else used this before?

My Colleague gave me a can but I dont want to start walking round with it if its useless lol.

Its the one purchased from Niton

I used to use Stoppa Red. I'll be replacing it with the Niton equivalent for this summer's season.

Do you all use the ones WITHOUT Mace the illegal ingredient so that it doesn't constitute as a firearm? And for those of you that have used it what view have the clun managers/police taken of it??

There are a limited number of offender ID sprays which can be used to mark or distract a subject which are legal. If it's not a brand name I've heard of, written in English on the label and clearly marked as non toxic, non irritant etc I'd be looking at section 5 firearms act.

I've taken a couple of sprays off local criminals which are from France, Germany and Turkey which contain CS, CN, OC, Mace and other irritants or riot control agents.
Opinions are like lottery tickets, most of them are worthless.

For those changing to the niton spray - just be aware, that their new one has a paper label on it, which is a bit of a pain if you are using a peter jones holster - as it rips the label when you put in the can.

No worries if you only do it once, but repeated removal will rip off the label, and then you might have issues if the police can't read what your can is !!!!!!

But it's never knowingly under used!

Have you fed that back to Niton's R&D team? It's the sort of thing they'd normally look at and act on.

Stoppa-Red had a paper label iirc.. just happened to be black.
