Still, in an emergency situation, I think I'd have a better chance of hitting the charging 800 pound killing machine with a fog than with a bullet. And unless you are actually hunting at the time, there's not much of a likelihood of having a weapon heavy enough to do serious damage at the ready.
Most bear spray also contains dye so the rangers can find the offending bear and move it out of the area.... too bad the courts go nuts on using it on people (violent attackers)

Thank you! I've gotten so absent minded in my old age!

I've always thought of bear repellant as pepper spray on steroids.
