I was asked this question about the choice behind one caliber's i have in walking around the woods caliber and why do i wear it when we are walking around in some of the places where we have to go to dureing some of the places dureing the day . the pistol is a S&W 500.cal revolver with 4.inch barrel
As i explained to the person i do not really hunt anymore and the large caliber revolver are more for dealing more with a bear encounter than anything else if i encounter one when i'm walking around in the woods some day's because of my work now . .The revolver & chest holster is allway in the car or truck i drive in a duffle bag that i keep with me all the time when i'm at work walking around on some of the places i have sent to talk to these people ..
One of the gentlemen i worked with was trying to tell the person asked about the caliber i had selected for my walking around in the woods revolver and the person who s never really been outside the lower 48..
I and the other person in the vehicle wed morning we had tried to explained to the gentlemen that you can turn the corner on some of the places out in the woods and there is a bear or another large dangerous animal that you might have to deal with right then and there so it better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it ..
To me it seam that some of the socalled field people have never really understood the fact that this animals are dangerous and can hurt you in a second's .. The person asked me if bear spray would not be a better deal sometimes than a large caliber revolver
