He massages about a teaspoon of Vaseline into each cotton ball, then stuffs them into a cylindrical plastic matchbox. These babies ignite even in damp or snowy conditions." Now this is a new one I had never heard of and makes good sense too.

Outdoor Lover wrote:o what's the mace for? It only works on humans and the "mace" that you buy to put on your keychain is pretty weak stuff. If it's for personal protection from other people than go to a good uniform or spy shop and get Pepper Spray with oleoresin capsicum. I have other recommendations as well about it, you can PM me. But it is important to understand that if you have no training and find yourself in a situation where you need to use it, better make sure which way the wind is blowing or you end up incapacitating yourself....And forget about it stopping any wildlife that has a mindset.....
