Right Gaurd still works....

Unread postAuthor: Dr.Doom » Thu Oct 19, 2006 2:40 pm

Used it yesterday, worked, not as good as white rain did though...

It doesn't list any flamible liquids on the back, maybe it's just the aresol exploding, but it still works.

maby it was in the back, and they just took it off the crate, and put it on the shelf. (although I kinda doubt it)

Try taking a couple more shots with it. how many did you take?

It's a tan can, I really don't like the smell of it, I've shot probably between 5-7 shots with it, on average I hold spray for 6 seconds.

I really don't see the point in buying it up, white rain is cheaper and from what I can tell it's been working better, and doesn't smell like my grandpa as much.

I bought a can of right guard from a local drug store today, it is brown and lists 4 flammable ingrediants on the back: Denatured alcohol, isobutane, propane, and butane. Is this the old version?

Well it certainly works well, using a 2 second blast I get better distance than I do with Axe and Red zone sprays.

I tried to post this on the RIP right guard thread, but alas and alack it is locked.
A couple of thoughts that are linked together, by me but not the thread, somebody said they probably could find the older stuff still on the shelves at dollar stores, and somebody said that there was probably a boatload of it in warehouses probably in third world countries.
Since dollar stores and 99 cent stores typically get their stash from that third world stash, well you do the math.
as for me and my house, I pirated the ignitor from a barbeque grill to begin with, so I (as I often do) I thought to myself, "Self, why not take the valves and tubing off as well, so that they might be used as a fuel line to run straight propane at less than a dollar a pound into the device?"

Et voila ici, I no longer have to think in terms of engineering a fuel source.

Another thing, the Right Guard working in a mini but not the full size cannon, perphaps that is the ethanol solvent in the deodorant itself...? it is a fairly low explosive, lower still because it is really polluted with the other stuff, which is primarily meant to gunk up your barrel and other mechanisms.

Say, what the hell is this militaristic rank system anyhow?
Sheeeoot, when I was in the Air Farce they promoted me to Major General the first day of Basic. Yep, my TI said I was a Major Embarrassment and a General Disaster.

So it is unanimous, in my mini-Democracy, I have the only vote and we voted to just ignore the living hell out of the rank system.

It's not that hard to get a hold of just look on the back of the can if it says 1998 then it will work if it says 2000 something it won't. Genuardi's here sells the old stuff all the time, thats what I use.
