Bear spray is not stronger than pepper spray

For the third Arlo Finch book, I was considering having one character use bear spray on a non-bear adversary. Since the books take place in the mountains of Colorado, it was very believable that the character would have it handy. I also assumed that bear spray is stronger than conventional self-defense pepper sprays because, well, bears. But it turns out, I was wrong: Although pepper spray and bear spray contain the same active chemical, they are not the same thing. Bear spray has a much l...

Simple Tests to Find Out Who is Doing Your Thinking for You

Opinion Where do you get your ideas? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- The average man on the street thinks that socialism takes care of the poor.
