    If that combines spray gets into eyes, well that's just too bad isn't it?

    Both household chemicals are perfectly legal too. Women should remember that.,
    Ammonium Chloride isn't the danger. It's the liberation of the chlorine from the bleach that makes Chlorine gas (Household bleach, or NaOCl - mixed with Ammonia, or NH3 results in the combination of the Sodium, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Hydrogen into 2NaONH3, and the Chlorine is released as Cl2) which is a vicious blister agent that burns any tissue that it comes into contact with. Technically, it's a WMD. If you have it in a container with two chambers, you can be charged with carrying a concealed weapon, and just having it set up shows intent to cause bodily harm. Unless you're planning on not having any governmental oversight after you've used it, I'd suggest something a bit more conventional there, MacGyver.

    So you're saying I should put it away and stick to the switch, or .357?

    Most situations can be handled with an axe handle. Brave Sir Robin doesn't stand up to an 80 mile per hour strike to any part of the body. If that fails to deter the aggressor, pull out the .38 and pull the trigger.

    I prefer .45 ACP. If you use Glaser Safety Slugs, you can even argue that you are exercising due dilligence in your means of protection.

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made so and kept so by the exertions of better men [and women] than himself." ~John Stuart Mill, 1806 - 1873
