Just wondering what everyone carries as their own bear protection in a handgun, I'd like to see some good numbers from this poll. So what is it that you carry, and what is your preferred load?
.357mag, 10mm, 44mag, 45 colt, 454 casull, 460S&W, 50AE, 500S&W, Spray, or something else?
Personally I carry a 4" Redhawk in .44mag with 340g HC lead by BuffaloBore in Brown-bear country, and a .357 with Federal 180g HC lead when Blackies are more likely to be around.
Thanks for the replies,-J
