Pepper Spray Laws

Yes, Pepper spray is generally legal to carry in all 50 states.

Although generally legal to carry in all 50 states, pepper sprays cannot legally be shipped to some locations.

No Pepper Sprays can be shipped by air or outside of the Continental United States (lower 48), even to Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, etc.
We also cannot ship to APO/FPO addresses.

Pepper Spray is legal to carry in some states, but due to their laws we cannot ship there - you must buy from a local store:

  • Massachusetts
  • New York
  • Wisconsin* (Since 11/1/11 pepper spray is allowed; tear gas still prohibited. See latest laws)

Other states have some apparent restrictions:

  • Michigan - only certain types of Michigan-approved pepper spray can be shipped.
  • Florida - 2oz limit 
  • California - 2.5oz limit
  • Arkansas - 5oz limit
  • North Carolina - 5oz limit

What about minimum age to carry pepper spray?

Age Limits are vague - most states do not specify a minimum age to carry pepper spray. Those that do (New York, New Jersey, Washington) specify 18 years of age. You can carry at 14 in Washington with your parent's permission.

In any other state, 18 years old would be the safest assumption (but may be down to individual officer judgement).

Kubotan Laws

Yes, we will ship kubotans to all 50 states

In the United States kubotans are legal and unregulated, with the notable exception that kubotans are prohibited as carry-on items for air travelers. However, we've heard of (unconfirmed) cases where people have been charged with carrying an offensive weapon with some of the extreme kubotans (with extra spikes, sharpened points, etc).

An offensive weapon is defined as "an instrument designed to be used in attack, or an object which may be used in attack" - which could include a pencil or pen if you wished it to..
