While generally used for riot control, handheld pepper spray canisters can be an effective tool for subduing uncooperative targets. The active ingredient in pepper spray is Oleoresin Capsicum or OC. OC is an inflammatory agent that causes the eyes to swell up and close. It also causes a burning sensation on any exposed skin. Due to its limited range and area of effect it is best used in addition to other non-lethal devices to cause a suspect or hostage to comply.
