Re: side arm for wolf protection
Since the question is about wolves, a 40 S&W with 180 grain hollow points fits the bill nicely. A woman can handle the 40 without a problem. My wife and daughter both carry XDM 40's as their concealed carry choice. Their is something to be said about having lots of fire power if you happen to be in close quarters with a pack of wolves.
