Grizzlies were all defense, one of life the rest property. Would have been two in defense of life but my clients were between me and my gun and froze and I got lucky with the bears decision to only make a mock charge. Could have fooled me. Was also the last time I ever left my gun on the boat.

I’ve hunted black bears once. They don’t taste all that great to me and I enjoy watching them more than shooting them but I’d take anyone bear hunting that wants to go.

If your willing to bet your life on a non-CNS not mattering much between 10mm and .44 that’s fine by me. Not my life and I’m not gonna tell you how to live yours.

Sea2Summit---on the grizz that you personally killed did you use one of your handguns and or a long gun? Also, it appears that you guided in G bear country what state did you do so?

Thx, Dogz

All long guns, pistols would only be a last ditch option if facing one on purpose IMHO. This was Southcentral-ish Alaska...30ish years ago now.

Gotcha, I recall years ago (probably like 550 or so saying to my G-pa that's cool you have a 1911 on the kitchen counter good idea. His response was that it was there so he could fight his way to one of his long guns...:)

Serious question, how many have gotten more than a couple rounds of on a bear? Or felt they could have if a bear came those last 10 yards?

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
