Show me the regulations that coverbear bangers. Regs for seki are somewhat vague but think they would have a hard time prosecuting anyone for carrying a bear banger or even using one according to the directions.

Difficult to obtain in the U.S. I tried to find a source online and was unable. Canadian retailers will not ship to the U.S. Cannot ship through USPS mail, common carriers (UPS, FedEx) won't touch them. Considered explosives. If anyone finds a legal source post back here or PM me.

Ironic, isn't it? Canada sells bear bangers over the counter but does not allow handguns. The U.S. allows handguns but not bearbangers. :-k

Maybe you should carry a PLB and a satellite phone too.


I always appreciate sarcastic responses. Actually, I do carry a satellite phone when I am solo backpacking. Since I am 64 years old with a medical condition, my wife likes me to have the phone.

1. As per my first post I would not carry a bear banger in the sierra.

2. Just mentioned it for those interested in a signaling device.

3. As for irony what about the legality of carrying a firearm in a NP (with proper concealed carry permit) but bear spray is illegal?

I'm glad you took it that way.

If I were in your shoes I'd probably carry that stuff too.
