We have a lot of bear hunting in Oregon. In some area's you can take 3 bears a year. I like calling them in myself. The only one I have killed so far was 80 yards with a handgun SRH .454 w/red dot. Great fun and very exciting. He now stands in my living room. I know 80 yards isn't long range for a rifle or a specialty pistol, but for a revolver it's not to bad.
