I tend to agree. A firearm (or any other defensive tool) is useless if you’re not willing to use it when the moment arrives to do so. I don’t know how effective Bear pepper spray is, but it’s got to be better than a holstered pistol.

It's effective, and many times not, but better than a holstered pistol. Handgun not being my first choice.

It is, and works on human threats too... and very effectively.
Temporarily blinded, respiratory system burning, chocking, possibly vomiting, most end up on the ground and can be of no threat to you or yours. Better yet, close in most cases is more than accurate enough to stop anyone.... not always the case with a firearm.
Seems to work on alligators too. My mom used it down in FLA (or Louisiana) when she was walking their greyhound at a camp ground. A very large alligator popped on the walking tail one evening. She bear sprayed it and it backed off real quick.
It is now one of the Christmas gifts I give them. A large can of bear spray each. Only about $30 so it is cheap too.
No target practice either. It a user can spray a garden hose or Pam they can use bear spray reasonably well. Seems to hold up in the can well too. My wife tried a 3 year old can in the basement. It still worked... and if you only spray a 3 second blast that is all you will have used... and still have plenty left for the next target... or the first it he/she has any fight left in them.
But they won't.
Once they are down if you feel you still need to shoot them they are an easier target when they are blinded and laying on the ground and can't see you any more.
The basement test showed though, that be sure you know where your exits are when you spray in the home. :-)
No worry though, it is just pepper elements and it non poisonous. It will not affect your genes or DNA nor have any other long term effect a human.
