Is a Single Action revolver, a bad Idea for Bear Defense? Is it too slow, in your opinion?
Why do most choose DA over SA?
If you have a DA, do you consider that an advantage?
My S&W 44 Mag. is DA, and it's only purpose is Bear Protection. HOWEVER, I usually shoot it SA, and if a bear jumped me, I would probably, automatically, even in my stress, shoot SA.
I see little advantage then, in the DA, for ME. I spose it could be a few milliseconds faster if I was that cozy with said bear.
Now, the Big Questions, or the ones Most Pertinent. How many of you guys, n gals, shoot your Beeg Boomers, DA? If a bear got after you would you shoot DA, or SA, like I probably would, or consult the bear for his preference?
It has come to my attention, that them bars have collectively decided on a new offensive, against those who would do them harm, including those who think they are "Gentle", like ole Ben.
The likelyhood is, that there will be few aggressive measures in evidence until Spring, due to the fact that, by now, most have chosen to sleep on the decision. This gives us time to prepare, for whatever they might have in store. As always, it is prudent for us to use that time wisely.
Thanks for your indulgence.
