Re: .22LR pistols for pack in side arm opinions?

I used to carry a single six and really liked it but wanted a MKII so I sold that and bought a MKII with the 5 inch bull barrel and have never regretted that decision. I have ran just about every type of ammo through it and never had it malfunction due to the ammo not having enough power to cycle it. Once it gets dirty it starts to malfunction and yes the tear down and assembly takes a little to get used to, ok sometimes a lot depending on your mood and time.

Aside from that I carry a 4" Redhawk in 44 mag when I worry about bears.

Re: .22LR pistols for pack in side arm opinions?

A .22LR would be good with some CCI snake shot. I prefer to carry my .357 on my hunts with me though. Ruger GP100. .38 specials are a great alternative if worried about the recoil of a .357

I have seen bears out while hunting and would rather trust my wheelgun throwing the .357's than the .38's though.
