Fine, carry a .380 ACP in Grizzly country if you want. I'll stick with my .44 mag Alaskan.

You Will Buy A Glock? I think I got it. Thanks.

Hmmm, good concept but probably not easy to walk around with while holstered. A 2nd G20 on the other hand.... I just might have to sweet talk SWMBO on that one.
And we’ll played Chuck Perry!

Holy crap. That's quite a chunk of meat missing.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
How many different ways did the writer tell us the bear had to be shot?
Chicks dig scars, dudes got a conversation starter at any bar....
If I'm going into the woods, my 44 Mag or 10 mm is going with me... However better the 43 than nothing.
"My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them." Winston Churchill

It's the law.
I've seen a lot of bears in the wilderness over the years. Mostly Black bears, but two Grizzly bears, as well (Montana). I would be terrified to defend with a small caliber weapon. I would still be terrified to defend with my G20, but that is what I carry now in the wilderness. Switched from a 44 mag revolver a few years ago. I understand many bears have been killed with small caliber pistols over the years. Any pistol is better than no pistol. But the odds are against you with a pea shooter caliber. They really are. Just ask a guide in Alaska.
By the way, Cougars/Mountain Lions are more dangerous than bears. You'll never know they are stalking you. Good thing those attacks are very rare.
Few pics from my fav spot in the North Cascades. Was just there three weeks ago. Now it is all snowed in. (7000 feet elevation and a very short season to get there)
