Oregon Pepper Spray Law Explanation

In the state of Oregon, it is perfectly legal to carry pepper spray or an electrical stun gun; however, a person can be charged with a crime for recklessly discharging either of these items against another person.
Everything that you find in our store is legal to possess in Oregon, and these products and tools for the purposes of self defense are permitted for legal use in the appropriate self-defense situations.

Portland is one of the major cities in Oregon, and, while still considered to be fairly safe for a larger city, violent crime is on the rise. Using personal protection products and self defense tools properly can help you avoid becoming a statistic. We advise remaining aware of risks, paying close attention to your surroundings, and taking precautions to protect yourself (like carrying pepper spray or an electronic incapacitation device like a stun gun) to reduce the chances of becoming a victim.
