The 2 oz model would be CA legal as long as it has the mandated warning label attached to it. [PC 22810(e)]

The 4 oz model would not be CA legal, due to it being more than the maxium legal amount of 2.5 oz.


Penal Code 17240
(a) As used in this part, "tear gas" applies to and includes any liquid, gaseous or solid substance intended to produce temporary physical discomfort or permanent injury through being vaporized or otherwise dispersed in the air.
(b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), "tear gas" does not apply to, and does not include, any substance registered as an economic poison as provided in Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 12751) of Division 7 of the Food and Agricultural Code, provided that the substance is not intended to be used to produce discomfort or injury to human beings.

Penal Code 22810
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any person may purchase, possess, or use tear gas or any tear gas weapon for the projection or release of tear gas if the tear gas or tear gas weapon is used solely for self-defense purposes, subject to the following requirements:
(e)(1) No person shall purchase, possess, or use any tear gas weapon that expels a projectile, or that expels the tear gas by any method other than an aerosol spray, or that contains more than 2.5 ounces net weight of aerosol spray.
(2) Every tear gas container and tear gas weapon that may be lawfully purchased, possessed, and used pursuant to this section shall have a label that states: "WARNING: The use of this substance or device for any purpose other than self-defense is a crime under the law. The contents are dangerous -- use with care."
(3) After January 1, 1984, every tear gas container and tear gas weapon that may be lawfully purchased, possessed, and used pursuant to this section shall have a label that discloses the date on which the useful life of the tear gas weapon expires.
(4) Every tear gas container and tear gas weapon that may be lawfully purchased pursuant to this section shall be accompanied at the time of purchase by printed instructions for use.

Interesting product. :cool:

The description says it is a pepper spray that is designed to be thrown. The nozzle locks open and the container will rotate 360 degrees (on a hard surface) to spray an entire area.

It probably does- these things were made for riot police- who would have gas masks on at the time of deployment.

They are NOT made for home defense or malninja-ry.

Not such a good idea, unless you like getting peper sprayed yourself...
That stuff in an enclosed area really SUCKS!

Starts as soon as you push the button just like a bug bomb does. Those things have been around forever. I have two that are at least 20 years old.
