Re: Black Bear self defense handgun/rifle
Thanks everyone so much for your contributions.
So far it sounds like the 12 gauge slug/44 mag combination is the best, no?
I do not own a shotgun, was wondering if there were any suggestions on models for this.
I also do not own a 44 mag, would be interested in models on that also for this particular case. I don't care whether it is a revolver or not, and I don't know if there are wide differences in recoil.
Also, I was thinking of starting another thread but maybe just here is fine, I am planning on doing some Alaska trips in the next few years, and it makes sense to get one rig for both spots.
What is the deal with a 45/70? I've looked up the energy specs on those and they underperform your 300 mags and stuff. I was researching that as a possible purchase for this but it seems to be less powerful than other options.
And I suppose a 357 mag or 357 sig would be out of the question for an AK grizzly?
