You could use that weapon, hit a bear and literally make his heart explode. Just pisses them off for about 5 more minutes though.

A Russian scientist and a Czechoslovakian scientist had spent their whole lives studying the majestic grizzly bear. Each year they petitioned their respective governments to allow them to go to Yellowstone to study these wondrous beasts. Finally, their request was granted and they immediately flew to New York and then west to Yellowstone. They reported to the local ranger station and were told that it was the grizzly mating season and it was much too dangerous to go out and study the animals. They pleaded that this was their only chance. Finally the ranger relented. The Russian and the Czech were given cell phones and told to report in each day.

For several days they called in, and then nothing was heard from the two scientists. The rangers mounted a search party and found the scientists' camp completely ravaged. There was no sign of the missing men.

They then followed the trail of a male and a female bear. They found the female and decided they must kill the animal to find out if she had eaten the scientists, because they feared an international incident. They killed the female and cut open the bear's stomach and, sure enough, found the remains of the Russian.

One ranger turned to the other and said, "You know what this means, don't you?"

"Of course," the other ranger nodded. "The Czech is in the male."

A .357 mag even at medium range will go through it's skull.

A shotgun is useless. Too long and it'll be swiped away in close quarters plus unless you're prepared to use a rifled slug, that's what'll piss em off.

From what I understand, handguns arent nearly as effective as Bear Spray.

Think about it. You are staring at a huge, pissed off, and dangerous grizzly bear. I think most peoples first reaction would be to piss their pants, before even contemplating defending themselves.

With a gun, you have to pull it out and hope to god your hand isnt shaking too hard to aim. Even then it'll probably take more than one shot to take him down.

Bear Spray can easily be used in an arc, with a better chance of making contact on target.

Screw being an Internet Tough Guy. After meeting a grizzly, I think every orifice in my body would systematically release.

I doubt it survived six head shots from a .357 or .45 (magnum of course).

People kill bears with handguns all the time. They're animals, not godless killing machines.

Canadians don't need a weapon for protection from bears. Come on folks, this is a Canadian! We're tougher than nails to live in this sub-zero climate, in our igloos, eh. I'm surprised he didn't stop for a beer on his way to the hospital.

Bear spray is good too for the same reason. If you're struggling at close quarters it's easier to keep ahold of a pistol or a spray can versus a long-gun. Rifles will be batted away plus ultimately you don't have to kill the bear, just hurt it enough that it'll leave you alone.

Not to mention mountain lions are a bigger threat out there anyway. I know of which I speak.

Live in Alaska, you see bears quite often. My uncle once had a moose wander into his house, trash the place, see my uncle and attempted to chase him upstairs. Antlers were too big though. Ever see a car after someone hit a moose? Yeah, they are pretty much totaled.

That asshole was all hugs and kisses for bears - until he started getting gnawed on. I believe the audio from that incident had him screaming to his g'friend to hit the bear with something. Now that isn't very nice Timmy...

Anyone who has seen the Bella Coola/Ocean Falls area will agree. Absolute gorgeous country. Lots of bears and other animals too.

Fatal_Exception- That reminds me of when I was living in Alaska. I bought a 44mag pistol - just in case. I would hunt for moose along the noisy streams - easy to come across a bear, (or worse) a momma bear w/cubs. A 44mag or larger is the only kind of handgun that will penetrate a grizzly skull. I told an oldtimer of my purchase and he asked "How long is the barrel on that thing? Four inches? Six inches?" I told him that it was only abouy 3 1/2 inches. He said, "Good! That way it won't hurt so bad when that bear shoves it up your a$$!" Spoken from a true Penis.

I know a Canadian gun nut who carries a handgun. He is a nature photographer, and he says it's for bear protection.

I'm not sure which is the chicken and which is the egg, though.
