On October 21, I was accosted by a man on an isolated section of road while I was out running. I had no other way to avoid him, but I saw him in time to get the spray ready, which took all of one second. I also bought the holster and it fits on my runner fuel belt.
I used the spray on this guy and was able to get away to the next house. Filed a police report.
I come from a family of gun owners, with conceal carry permits, and they all say to carry a gun. But this worked best would not have wanted anything else.
Criminals meant to do harm never announce it. In those seconds of a confrontation, there is a war in your brain fighting between what you know is going on ( something harmful) and their words of "I'm not going to hurt you" along with all this training for femlaes about being nice and cooperative.
I would not have used a gun, but had no problem spraying.
This spray worked great! Practice with it first so you're comfortable.
First the ways they are the same......
1.) Same canister diameter. This 9.2 oz canister is slightly taller. So both brands will fit in the Counter Assault holster I already own.
2.) Same maximum active ingredient allowed by law for discouraging bears from getting an attitude.
3.) Same trigger design with a forefinger loop and thumb operated trigger with the same glow in the dark thumb operated safety mechanism.
4.) Same good reputation for working on black bears and grizzly bears.
So, with those similarities there isn't a lot to relearn or adapt to in a panic situation. It appears that all the major brands.....Counter Assault, UDAP, and Frontiersman have standardized key elements of form and function. A huge kudos to this industry for adopting some sort of standardization in these safety products. If you learn to use one you can use them all. This could save a life in a bear encounter. Or a moose encounter.
So what are the differences?.....
1.) Rate. The Frontiersman and UDAP brands chose to almost double the flow rate of the Counter Assault bear spray. So there is much more deterrent going down range every second you hold down the trigger.
2.) Time. Because of the higher flow rate but similar volume of product 8.1 oz Counter Assault vs 9.2 oz Frontiersman, the Counter Assault gives you 7 seconds of spray vs only 5 seconds for the Frontiersman.
3.) Trigger. Both Frontiersman and UDAP are also similar in their trigger design. They offer less controlled bursts so it's harder to do a small burst. When you press the trigger these things will unload a lot of spray. So it's harder to test fire or use a smaller burst. Counter Assault on the other hand allows you to tailor the burst to the threat but will not get as much spray down range as fast as the Frontiersman or UDAP.
4.) Range. Frontiersman claims a range of 35 feet for their 9.2 oz canister vs 30 feet for the Counter Assault 8.1 oz canister. That makes sense with the higher flow rate and the more violent propellant associated with that rate. Will 5 feet make a difference? Maybe, maybe not.
I'm not sure either design approach is invalid, only different. I'd be happy to have either one in a bear encounter since a flame thrower or grenade launcher is not a practical solution. Here's what I decided to do with these two slightly different bear deterrents. I'll carry the Frontiersman in my shoulder holster mounted on my pack strap and the Counter Assault will be my backup canister I'll stow in my pack. I figure the higher flow and range of the Frontiersman will give me the best chance in a surprise encounter. But there's a high probability that I empty the canister in that one encounter. The Counter Assault backup will allow a little more finesse when I'm down to one canister so that I can possibly survive two subsequent encounters or multiple charging bears. Who knows if that's the smartest strategy. I won't know until it happens and I hope to never answer that question based on experience.
As these are really single use devices and I suspect most aren't tested by users I am worried about this being a more common problem than just one can. How do you know? I certainly would test any of these that I was going to carry to make certain I had one that worked.
As effective as this stuff would be on a bear, it will also work well on a dog, mountain lion, or violent screwtards in a pick up truck.
