Thread: Will a .22LR stop a charging 1,400 Brown Bear, if I stick it in his nose......?

  1. #1

    Default Will a .22LR stop a charging 1,400 Brown Bear, if I stick it in his nose......?

    It is winter, time for the same old dip-stick questions, Because anything interesting might hurt someones feeling and get locked, So will a .22LR (Say 40 Grain) stop a snot'blowing charging 1,400 pound horny Brown Bear........? (Woops I said Horny, me bad)......

    If it doesn't work the first time you try it, you need to take your hand to hand combat lessons from Larry, Moe, and Curly to be affective against a Horney BB.

    If you cant stand behind the troops in Iraq.. Feel free to stand in front of them.

    The late Joe Zentner, rancher of Kodiak fame and legend did it at around 10 feet. Corner of the eye from the witness account. You need to know that Joe bought the Woodsman 50 years before, carried it all his years and somewhere along the lines lost the rear sight. He could still put all the shots in the end of a beer can at 25 feet about as fast as he could pull the trigger. Saw him do it.

    If you can stick the barrel all the way in on either end of the bear you are good to go till the barrel comes out.Insurance gun claims on this can be iffy at best.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    Stop using "Grizz-Rut Sow Urine" and you won't have the aforementioned problem.

    In a word, yes. But when he's through laughing at you, you will then have your hands very full.

    This is Well Known Truth, Only problem with this "Immediate termination/'stop' of the Bear, in your experience......," is

    You need to bring along a friend to record this in story form so we can read later, said "friend" might not survive this....unless you are either pretty heavy and/or tasty thus distracting the "Stopped Bear" from becoming anothers "now current experience"

    But if you're going to try that temple shot, you should go with a pistol. A long gun is hard to hold accurately against your temple while you're being chewed on by Fuzzy Butt.

    It sure will. Once your partner gets that slug in the knee he will not be able to run near as fast as you. Bear will most likely stop to go after him first!
