The V4 Control Shotgun Defense Stream pepper spray has a pin stream pattern for an initial six feet that expands into a “Shotgun-Stream” pattern that maximizes coverage and atomization of the live OC or OC/CS agent. It projects 15 feet or more (depending on back wind velocity) and is equipped with a flip-top firing head to prevent accidental discharges. The spray has an “active agent” specially formulated to break down with a prescribed antidote to speed up post-exposure recovery time.
