First hand accounts from folks who have caught even with a whiff of bear spray when targeting a bear give quite a different account of the impact on their bodies and suggest it is far from subtle.
Ah, but have any of those folks who “caught a whiff of bear spray” ever been sprayed in the face with people spray, so they can offer a valid comparison?
Tell you what. Have your wife spray some bear spray at you when you are thirty feet away. Later on, after you’ve cleaned up, have her spray some people spray in your face at close range. Come back and tell us if they’re more or less the same effectiveness then. (how the hell do you add smileys to this site?)
I don't like to make plans. They cause the word "PREMEDITATED" to get used in court!
