In 1969, Aerko International Corporation (A.I.C.) began to function as a contract aerosol packager. One of the original products produced was a aerosol spray designed to fit into a small flashlight that could be carried by people to defend themselves from vicious dogs or people. The active ingredient used, Oleoresin Capsicum (OC), is a red pepper oil intended to cause coughing, a burning sensation on the skin, and watering in the eyes. OC was used because the spray was expected to be used most often on dogs which are not normally bothered by traditional tear gas.

Shooting conditions put unique demands on your equipment and when it comes to accuracy, the first priority is the right sight. That's because you never know exactly when or where you will get the opportunity to take your best shot.
ASP was founded in 1976 by Kevin Parsons. A PhD in Police Management from Michigan State University, Parsons spent half a decade teaching firearms and defense tactics at a regional police academy. A nationally respected consultant, he had designed Use of Force training systems for major law enforcement clients across the country. The nation's premier expert witness, he had testified over 500 times defending police agencies in 43 states. A frequent lecturer on Use of Force policy, training and administrative procedure, he was a frequent lecturer for a diverse group of professional organizations ranging from the International Association of Chiefs of Police to the American Bar Association. In each venue, he taught the necessity of systems that were tactically sound, operationally feasible and legally defensible. It was this real world, street oriented background that Kevin Parsons brought to the design of ASP products.
