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.

I think a full size pistol in 40 S&W like the M&P or Ruger SR 40 would be perfect for a woman as protection from wolves. They handle recoil well and have small grip inserts that fit many women well.

The oldlady carries a 38sp RugerLCR with her everywhere...Very lite and easy to shoot beside being very accurate! Maybe not big enough to blowem off their feet but definatly know they are being shot at!!

Re: side arm for wolf protection

I personally would go for the FN FiveseveN. I trust my life with mine. I think it would be pretty ideal for wolf protection as well. You have 20 rounds in the magazine, barely any recoil at all, and some bullet options that run as hot as 2,500 fps. Also, it is extremely loud, which to some might be a nuisance, but it could also scare the wolf off if you missed. I carry mine everywhere. Honestly, if I could take mine into Canada I would be using it to wolf hunt in January.

Excellent post.

I just got my Lone Wolf 10 mm factory length barrel in . And 20 lb spring +SS guide rod. . It functioned pretty good right out of the box. And it shoots good with 40 S+W ammo also.
With full house 10 ammo it may be too much of a good thing for many women, and the grip is a bit large for anyone with small hands. But the 40 in a 40 size grip would be great.

I think this is a great option also. As long as she likes it. Aweful lot of adult men have been killed outright with the 38 Special and most men are bigger than most wolves.

Re: side arm for wolf protection

My wife carries a 351pd in 22 wmr. Yes, there are better rounds, but she always has it with her and 7 rounds of Federal 50gr solids, beats a gun sitting at home. I carry my 329pd (22oz) in 44 mag in the woods, but carry my xds in 45acp when discretion is needed. Anything is better than nothing and I bet the noise alone would solve most wolf encounters.
