    Right, which is why I'd like to hear the definitive answer! The intent of my post was meant to be a, "some say this, some say that," sort of thing.

    Getting sprayed yourself is strongly encouraged. If you carry spray and use spray, you WILL get a facefull of your own stuff. Don't let the first time you experience the full effects be the time your safety is at risk.

    Under Indiana stand-your-ground laws if rioters are surrounding and beating on my occupied motor vehicle I am permitted to use reasonable force, I believe pepper spray is minimal yet effective reasonable force.

    You get the idea of the original post.

    The point was not all the stuff that can go wrong with spray, most of us are smart enough to figure that one out.
    .
    Guess you might be left with some sort of "hey get out of my face" situation and when would using some limited force be reasonable it they were just "in your face"?

    Maybe we will get some intelligent responses to that concept.

    Sorry but there is no easy answer. Legally justified is VERY fact dependent and there are a infinite number of facts that affect this. If you can articulate that you felt that your safety was at risk then you should be ok. What was the person doing that was "In your face?" What were the pre-attack indicators that would lead you to believe that some kind of attack was imminent? Specific, articulatable, facts is what you need.

    Good answer. Good follow of the train of thought. +1 to me for being very consistent over a period of time. (I often post on the fly, so glad to see I still have some memory left.)

    Thanks.

    "You being in my face is a clear threat, please step back." (I won't step back you ******) Spritzzzzzzz. Exit stage left. ??
