You can pick up bear spray at Cabelas, Bass Pro, REI, Eastern Mountain Sports and it's not that expensive. If you want to cheap out and depend on what you carry on duty make sure your will is up to date if you are going into grizzly country.
I didn't know those had extended range.

As to grizzlies; I'm not going anywhere near them, lol. Where I'm going is on the Eastern side of the country, and black bear country. I'll definitely look into finding some of that locally, then.
