Seen it before, still love it! Thanks!Because you just can't have a bears and ammo debate without this:
watch a show tonight about a guy who gets rid of Bears some where around mammoth mountain, ca. He ha many was to run Bears off, but if he pulls out a gun, he uses rubber pellets before they sheriffs use real bullets,If you are depending on the pistol to actually kill the bear etc...then I'd go a diff. route. Like I said previously. The most likely thing that would get rid of that bear etc... will be the noise that it makes when you shoot it. If you want to have a pistol big enough to take down game that big...I'd go with something like a 44 mag. Thats just me though. Here is a good read: http://www.chuckhawks.com/protection_field.htm
Wow, that sounds pretty brave...watch a show tonight about a guy who gets rid of Bears some where around mammoth mountain, ca. He ha many was to run Bears off, but if he pulls out a gun, he uses rubber pellets before they sheriffs use real bullets,
Much bigger bears I imagine than our local 3-400# black bear...if not, I may not go camping again! lolFWIW,
While working in Alaska, based out of Anchorage, I had the time to read a book about Bear attacks.
There was a documented story that happened in the late 1800's of 6 or 7 men on horses that shot
a Bear thru the heart at some distance away (has been many years since I read the story) by Rifle.
The Bear killed all but one of the men before dropping.
I wasn't trying to make a correlation. It's just, you don't hear that much about 10mm these days.Very interesting story...was not familiar with it and glad to be now. But I don't see the parallel between man and dogs, and mountain lion or bear.
Still, appreciate your input!
LOL. No problem! As before, appreciate your input, was just curious.I wasn't trying to make a correlation. It's just, you don't hear that much about 10mm these days.
And your "I'm thinking about taking my 10mm with me into the woods in case I have to defend myself against a large wild animal" just reminded of of Mr. Fish.
He had the same idea...but his turned out to be a very bad day.
I wasn't trying to say...or to even IMPLY that "it could happen to you too!" It's just, it clicked with me, that's all.
I'm rambling...I'll stop now...carry on.
