    Default Backup handgun change

    I'm headed to the SE on an island black bear hunting.

    My primary is a Marlin lever gun in 450 Marlin and I've been reading lots concerning backup guns and everyone's opinions.

    I know it's like talking about "which oil is better" and "ford vs chevy".... and there's already several threads on it... BUT I just wanted to say that I'm going to leave my Glock model 30 in 45 ACP at home and take a Ruger 45 Colt with stout loads instead.

    And, by the way.... it's "Rotella" and "Ford"

    I think of the two the .45 long Colt is a much better choice

    I wouldn't pack a handgun if it were me and I didn't on my brown bear this past spring. That 450 Marlin is more than enough firepower to stop a black or brown bear with the right loads. Carrying a pistol around while hunting just adds more weight, something I can do without.
