Ruger Tornado Pepper Spray
Ruger Tornado Pepper Spray

Personal safety and defense is important to everyone, but not everyone can or wants to carry a firearm for protection. In these situations, less-lethal defenses can be a lifesaver, and Ruger has developed an excellent line of pepper sprays and stun guns to meet this need — the Ruger Tornado line.

Ruger’s standard model of pepper spray is sold as both the Tornado 3-in-1 and as the Ruger Stealth (stealth in the sense that it doesn’t flash or make noise). This is a law-enforcement-strength pepper spray that rates at 2 million Scoville heat units—about a thousand times hotter than Sriracha sauce. It has a 15-foot spray range and includes a convenient belt clip for easy carrying.
The Ruger Stealth comes in a unique safety holder designed to reduce the chances of an accidental discharge. To access the spray, you slide the safety door down and push a release button. The sprayer then pops free in your hand, already in firing position. This mechanism becomes second nature after a bit of practice, but you will definitely need to familiarize yourself with it to avoid fumbling in a true emergency situation.

There are several sizes and models available, including ones that look like a lipstick case and other large enough for a bear attack. Stun guns are another less-lethal self-defense option offered by Ruger, but they are more heavily regulated than pepper sprays, so be sure to check the laws in your area before you carry one. Also keep in mind that stun guns are not Tasers and cannot be fired from a distance; rather, they must actually be touching the attacker to work. For more information, visit or call 877-460-0939.
