Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on October 02, 2019, 06:42:46 AMWhen the y-donor was well into dementia he could still buy guns at the local shop. We know that on at least one occasion he bought one while wearing just his tighty-whitey and a t-shirt. The gun shop owner took his money. And there was no waiting period because "He was a known customer."

Quote from: SGOS on October 04, 2019, 08:24:06 AMIn my recent reading about bear spray, it said that the active ingredient in bear spray is 1-2%. While in regular pepper spray, the kind used to subdue humans, is about 10%. It's hard to believe, but the greater number of scent receptors in bears may explain why such a small amount is still effective. For such a small amount of active ingredient, I do know what a small wiff carried back to me on errant current is like. It's horrible. I can't imagine inhaling something 10 times stronger. This article accounts for the less amount of active ingredient by explaining its purpose is to repel, not to harm. And there is no reason why an effective counter assault needs to add an element of harm to the process. https://www.selfdefenseninja.com/bear-spray-vs-pepper-spray-whats-difference/
