    44mag.

    I feel it's quite the ideal for a sidearm between power and size etc...

    SW make a super lightweight one...
    Taurus tracker is a 5 shot that's pretty lightweight.

    also consider a 454 with a 1.5" barrel vs. a 44mag with a 3 or 4" barrel...

    I'd really want probably a 3 or 4" barrel regardless.

    there's a youtube video of a momma griz charging a raft... I think the gun shot scared her off, I think that's part of it, simply to scare her off, at 10yds or 10 ft etc... sure at 50 or 100yds she'll just look at it you, better than nothing of course...

    Dam , that would work ! Then if you could find your weapon of choice on the ground, you could bust a cap in your head to end the pain from the bear having a spicey meal out of you !

    I saw that video. Hairy. Cruising throuh the bears fishin grounds... You are right about a short barrel heavy caliber. I'd have to go buy another with short barrel though I've seen the Tracker. Pretty neat but I can't bring myself to buy anything but American guns. No Brazilian for me ! Just the way I am in a few things I buy. I know a guy who has a Taurus 454 Raging Bull. I wasn't impressed. Sure a little cheaper $ but I like my Smith and Ruger's. Off topic I think ? Man, a 454 with 1.5 in barrel ! You would only want to shoot it once ! you would be deaf for a day !

    I could also shoot her in the leg ??? Then the bear would definitely be accupied with her while I slip out the back door...
    Nah Jen, I wouldn't do that. I'd stand there and fight the bear like Daniel Boone to protect you. I think... Well, let's what to see what happens... I think I'd be more worried about a pack of wolves than a griz. Especially in the Bighorn's. Or a mtn. lion jumping me from behind. You know I'm paranoid about that...Especially in Ca. !

    We can't carry while bow hunting in NV, terrible law IMO. Feeling vulnerable in mt. lion country is not a good feeling.
