              Comments about Orion 12-Gauge High-Performance Red Meteor Flares:

              These longer cartridges are easier to unload from the launching pistol than the older Orion cartridges. It is easy to eject them, due to the longer nose that fits into the barrel.

                        In anticipation of a Coast Guard inspection, I purchased these flares as replacements for a set whose dates had expired. I used them once in a "near emergency" when I was fishing a remote coastal river in British Columbia. A brown bear got uncomfortably close, and would not go away despite our yelling. I fired a flare into the rocks in front of it, and that did the trick. That bear turned tail and skedaddled out of there!
