"Bear spray works"

- have you personally sprayed a bear with it, and if yes, what happened then (I do not doubt that statement, but ask, because I haven't)..?

And even more stupid questions: what exactly does "bear spray" contain, are there different products, and are they widely available in your country, or you need permit to get them?

My curiosity is because I sometimes go to the woods near my fathers house, very close to the Russian border, and in the past few years bear sightings have become much more common in the area. Bears over here aren't as big as yours, but I still would not want to wrestle with them! I always make some noises, when deep into the woods, and actually never seen a bear in the wild, but they are there, plenty of feces around nowadays, and very close to where people live, so I've thought maybe carrying something (but not a gun) might be good in the long run.
