Re: which side arm?
I pack a tit. 4'' S&W 44 w/300 in grizz. If not I have started carrying my 5 shot 357. Because my main hunting buddy has been stalked by 3 cats. One he shot at 8 yrds inID, AFTER YELLING at it and waving bow, and same year my kid was stalked by cat, and missed w/ bow, young, and cat showed up again and he shot it w/ his 22 cal pellet gun. Mom was not happy and his buddy freaked out . Just too many preditors these days, plain and simple
