    You know, years ago I remember seeing some guy with his pants pulled up real high walking around out on the prairie trying to shoot blue grouse with a can of bear spray...you don't suppose...?

      No prairie in the Flathead. You need a lesson in geography, Mr. Wannabee.

        There is an important difference between stopping and killing. A .357 will kill a bear but not before it kills you. The object is to stop it from killing you. For this purpose I carry a .44 mag.

          Of course if you are hunting with your neighbor a .22 is all you need. Just shoot him in the knee cap and while the bear is busy with him walk away briskly. You also get another parking space out of the deal.

            JHO~~ You just can't beat a 10mm/Glock M30/M20 15+1 when Bow or Gun Hunting for Large or Dangers Game or when you are caught in a Wolf Pack Attack! Be "Prepared" for any thing when in the WILD.

              the only time I have had any hint of anything after me was when I walked back out of a hunting area and found mountain lion tracks in my tracks. had no idea he was there, I was carrying a side arm but it would not have mattered if it was a 9mm or a 454 that thing could have been on me and I would have been screwed before I ever even had a chance to think about using any firearm

                Happy Myles, been busy as all get out at work. After 4 years in Alaska (86-90)running the Base Range (largest and busiest in central AK), Director of High Power Competition for Tanana Valley Sportsmen’s Association in Fairbanks and shooting with the Air Force Team, I get to hear some really wild stories and really mess with the minds of Green Horns!!

                id I ever tell'ya about the 2 Fellas going for trophy rams & sighted in at 400 yards. The two rams were down hill at 200ish yards. The rest of the story is obvious including should've sighted in at the gold standard of 200!
