I was wondering if any of you know of a product similar to the military and police "flash-bang" grenades that someone could use to scare off a bear without loading a handgun (with it's limited ammo supply) with a blank. I'd like to have my gun fully loaded, but still give the bear one last chance to turn and run. I was thinking of using a firecracker like a cherry bomb, but I would have to light it and that takes some time (and two hands). I was also thinking of carrying a start pistol for this but I don't know how feasible that is. If I had something I could just toss out in front of Mr. Bear that would go bang and scare him off, we'd both walk away winners.
