This is the Alaska Handgun forum. What would be your ideal Alaska Handgun? Consider all endeavors with which you would need and use a handgun....you have only one. If you don't hunt bears or need a handgun for bear protection, don't consider that purpose. This is to be your personal choice, one gun...different loads if need be, but only one handgun for every thing you do in the great state of Alaska. Now tells us why you would select that particular gun.
