Just make sure it's fresh. Bear spay has a shelf life and you need to replace it after a while. There should be an expiration date on it. It's basically a super-powerful pepper spray. Its the same basic idea as the pepper spray used on humans but about 100 times more powerful. It comes in a pretty decent size can too:
Also, I'd have no problem spraying this stuff on a home intruder. It will send a human being into the stratosphere of pain and agony.
