Our plan to spend 6-8 weeks in BC and Alaska this summer is still on. We are sixty and plan to spend time in the truck camper and at lodges and what not.
My wife is itty bitty....120 lbs or so...Wife wants to "watch my back" so-to-speak while I am fishing and of course I want a gun for the truck cab and one for the camper.
Here's the question.... pistols seem to be out as we will travel through Canada and given that she is slight of build, I am thinking one or two of the following:
20 guage youth model pump with slugs or ?
Marlin 38/357 lever
Marlin 44 Mag lever
I am leaning to the 20g and the Marlin 44. I figure she can become proficient with both.
Am I missing something else that's out there?
Your thoughts please...
btw.... yep, I know... I fished trout/salmon in the rivers in BC quite a bit when I was younger and never even saw a bear.....yep, am concerned about two legged varmints.
