I will never forget that drill...it sucked that's for sure. We got it for our right to carry OC on the SWAT team.
instructor Damian loved it....
" Okay you ready?"...."on the count of three"..."and you better not close your eyes, or your getting it again"
"One"... "keep those eyes open"
"two...swooosh"...and then the blackout amdjfj
All I could hear is Damian laughing...it's rather unpleasant experience.
The sting was like 200 degree sand being ground into your open eyes. Trying to obtain some sort of visual orientation was nearly impossible.
Later that night, I got into the shower and when the water hit my face it re-constituted the OC to a point and tried to get it going.
