a big ole can of bear spray purchased in Canada seems to be the best choice.
As a gunsmith who lived in the north, I can say with confidence that you are bringing a knife to a gunfight. Muzzle energy levels are NOT anywhere near adequate for griz . Don't kid yourself, take the good advice on sprays or horns. Just sayin'
