    Funny this thread should pop up in the new posts, I switched agencies and am 3/4 of the way through a second academy (this time federal) and I was just OC sprayed last Tuesday. I ended up at the health unit that night, and the nurse practitioner said I was having a bad allergic reaction to it. The stuff we were sprayed with here seems to have been a bit nastier than the stuff I got at my other academy. It wasn't until Wednesday in the late afternoon that my eyes had recovered. I believe that's the last time I will switch agencies, since I reacted very similarly the first time and apparently I'm allergic to it?

    What worked for me:


    Water + Baby Shampoo at first, then straight water followed by fresh air and "strobing" my eyes by blinking fast.

    I also stripped nude outside the barracks, double bagging my clothes in contractor bags. Those were washed at a laundromat with a heavy duty degreaser.

    As for the after effects, I took a HOT shower to open up my pores. It lit me on fire again, but not as bad and for not as long. Lean over, you don't want OC on teh ballz.

    After that drink 14 PBRs and go to sleep.

    About two months ago I bought my wife two different kinds of oc, saber red and fox labs 5.3. I wanted to test how effective they where, and show my wife that someone determined enough could still do a lot of damage after being sprayed. We did the saber red first and I thought this isn't bad. About an hour later we did the 5.3 and it was by far the worst out of the two, I tried water and that made it worse(much worse wen the water ran down my pants) like others have said time and fresh air seemed to work the best. Later this week I get to take a ride from the taser X26 and c2 so my wife can see what they are like. Anyway good luck don't panic and control your breathing or you will choke.

    I've taken a ride once and been drive stunned twice with an X26, I'm afraid of that demon machine. I would take the OC over it.

    I'm wondering if only having an hour of recovery impacted how the 5.3 felt. I mean.. your pores could have been wide open still from the first blast.

    I'm sure it had more of an effect because of that fact, and since you brought that up I wanted to test it again. But this time I just used the 5.3. So after I got hit with the taser x26 and the c2 yesterday I had my wife give me a real good spray......and it still hurt like fk lol. But it wasn't quit as bad as wen I did the one wright after the other. On a side note the X26 is probably the best tool the police have at their disposal for the job It's intended to do. That thing is not fun at all. I took one cartridge,and then had her hit me again with the same cartridge wen I tried to stand up. Then we removed the cartridge and I took two contact shots. You sure as hell stop doing whatever it is that the person using it wants you to stop doing lol. I don't think I will be giving that another go.

    I will take the Taser over OC any day. Done both a number of times as well as CS a bunch in the Military. Taser me daily over OC or CS once a week.
