IFC’s Warrior Wednesday this week features, Chuck Haggard, also known as the Legendary Lawman.  With more than three decades of very active service in Topeka, Kansas, Haggard has become the “go-to” guy nationwide for training on less-than-lethal tools, including pepper spray, Tasers, and impact weapons.  IFC chair John McLaughlin is a certified Pepper Spray/OC instructor through Haggard’s coursework.

In this wide-ranging interview, Chuck takes a deep dive into the evolution of pepper spray in both police and civilian use and why he recommends it for use between a “harsh word and a gun.”  Also, check out John’s videos on pepper spray here:
