I am looking for a good lightweight backpacking gun. I want a fighting chance against a cougar, grizzly bear or person who attacks me. It has to be lightweight, I will probably never need it so I’m trying to stay minimalist. I’m thinking a 5 shot 38. Revolver.
Tell me if I’m retarded or not.
38 is enough to stop a person, cougar, wolf, etc etc but what about bears
>not enuff stoppin powa or penutrashun to kill a bear
If a grizzly bear is close enough to you to the point where you have to shoot, your Glock 40 with muh solid copper 10mm rounds are not going to stop the bear fast enough unless your hitting it in its head or heart. I think I a 38 special headshot will kill a grizzly just fine. What do you fags thing? I have more experience around grizzlies than the average person but am no subject matter expert, but I have found it is hard for them to sneak up on you, so I would have time to retreat to high ground and get off a good headshot, or atleast get it to fuck off. Would a headshot not be the goal when shooting a bear with a pistol anyway? I am not sure I would count on a heart/lung kill with pistols.
