Re: which side arm?

My carry gun is a Taurus Raging Bull 454 loaded with either 260 or 300 grain flat nose and soon some 300 gr partitions. After finishing a bull elk one year with a shot to the head, I can tell you this round imparts massive damage and bone shattering exits! It might be a tad heavy, but you get used to it. Combined with my 338 rum if a griz wants a piece of me at least I have a fighting chance. And now that packing heat is now legal in Yellowstone Park, the 454 will be in a holster during my aventures in a couple weeks. I will have bear spray also, but I have more faith in my shooting than in bear spray. Can you say wind in wrong direction so that if you use the bear spray it comes back on you?

I don't bow hunt but I carry a sidearm when I long gun hunt, out of habit. Usually my model 27 S&W 44 long barrel revolver, sometimes my Kimber full size 1911.
