Pepper Spray

Sabre RedThere are criminals on the streets that want to do you harm! Are you prepared to defend yourself? Are you not yet ready to use a gun for personal protection? Or would you simply like to complement your current firearm with another powerful, safe and effective self-defense tool? One great, less-than-lethal option for you may be Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), more commonly known as pepper spray. Extracted from peppers, OC spray irritates the eyes to cause tears, pain, and temporary blindness. Learn the best ways to use pepper spray to stop and escape dangerous threats.

Note: You will NOT be exposed to active pepper spray in this course!

This course is run by law enforcement instructors certified by New York DCJS/MPTC, Safariland, and Sabre Red. Practice is conducted with water-filled inert practice sprays at static targets, and in advanced skills training at instructors during a simulated attack. Each student will receive 3 water-filled inert practice canisters, a defense spray with quick-release key ring, a certificate of completion, hands-on training, classroom time, and more.

"Matt, you are a very talented young man. What a blessing to meet someone like you. God bless you in your business and in your life. Your classes were very informative and engaging. God bless you, brother. Hope to see you again sometime." ~ Ricky from Syracuse, NY about our Church Security and SABRE Red Pepper Spray Courses

Matt, you are a very talented young man.

"Excellent instruction. I have taken multiple courses from PS&ED; Article 35, SIMCO, USCCA, ETC… This not only helped get my restrictions removed but it provided realistic situational instruction as well as clear information regarding legal rights and responsibilities. This is NOT target shooting at the range. This is situational recognition, avoidance, engagement, legal ramifications, etc… I believe this is good experience for anyone wishing to carry unrestricted and I believe the judges look favorably on this type of instruction." ~ Paul from Liverpool, NY about many of our courses and helping to get his restriction removed

Excellent instruction.

"You were informative and thorough, and entertaining at the same time. I took a six hour course and the time just flew by.

"Matt was fantastic! The sabre red class was my first class here so I wasn't sure what to expect. Matt made the information entertaining and educational. I learned a lot in the class. In fact, I've been working on my muscle memory and practicing using the pepper spray and how to move out of the way. I've already signed up for 2 other classes – the basic safety class – since I'm beginning the arduous process of getting my pistol permit, – and the article 35 class in June. If Matt is teaching these classes, then I know I will learn a lot and I'm really looking forward to them." ~ Christine from Liverpool, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course

Matt was fantastic!

"I attended Matt's class on Pepper Spray recently and found it very helpful and informative. It was a good combination of classroom and practice so that I felt more comfortable actually using the pepper spray canister should I ever need to. Matt's classes are enjoyable with a relaxed atmosphere while at the same time much information is covered. I particularly liked the small class size as it allowed us extra time for practice. I would recommend classes with Matt and intend to take a few more myself." ~ CJ from Jamesville, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course
