    FWIW, my Pom canister arrived today. It would totally fly under the radar. It looks like a woman's cosmetic, perfume spritzer, or maybe even an inhaler.

    The expiration isnít for the OC itís for the propellant. Iíve seen cans work fine at five years but Iíve seen a few cans dribble OC from the nozzle at five years.

    Iíve got some old cans lying around. Iíll test them and see how they work.

    On Greg Ellifritz's blog, he just came out in favor of the POM.

    I tested some Punch recently with a 1994 expiration date. It sprayed fine, and a crosswind assured me it was still potent.

    I'm only aware of one incident where Punch didn't work as designed. Two full-grown officers with full-tube maglites were required and even that took a bit of time. I haven't seen Punch in quite a while though.

    Ordered some POM for Mom! One snap ring and one clip. Whichever one she doesn't like as much is going to be used for test-firing, probably on me. Hopefully these guys start to offer inert units some time soon.

    Here's a link to the latest Civilian Carry Radio episode with Chuck Haggard talking about OC, with Mr. Murphy and Mr. Correia as guests on the panel.

    RFI - Defensive Spray

    I got two canisters of POM the other day as well. The Sabre that Iíd given my wife had a very weak safety mechanism that was always getting moved around in her purse. Iím a much bigger fan of the POMís trigger and safety and agree that the colors will probably make it easier to fly under the radar. I donít know what it looks like, but I wouldnít immediately guess pepper spray if I didnít already know.

    I've been carrying my POM for a couple weeks now. Aside from the benefit of the non-tactical colors, it carries much easier than the larger Sabre with pocket clip. As a result, it has become a permanent part of my pocket dump.

    Iíve been carrying the Pom for a couple days. I like it.

    A couple nitpicks, Iíd like to see a bigger finger guard for indexing the hand and keeping it out of the stream. Iíd also like to see a bigger option.

    I definitely prefer this trigger safety to the standard Sabre slider. Iíd guess thereís less chance of pocket stuff getting underneath the POMís trigger safety than the Sabre MK6ís.

    This seems like a winner.
