    Neither you won't need it. Also lose the watch it will just annoy you. If you absolutely must take something for this imagined unprovoked bear attack then the bear spray is MUCH LIGHTER than a gun and ammo. Anyone who brings a gun on a non hunting hike is a try hard larper.

      I'm beginning to think this is true.

      >you don't need a gun when you go PrepHole
      Sounds like something someone would say if they want easier victims when they go murdering in the woods.

      Let's see what you think when you round a corner and there's a huge black bull (bovine) 15 feet away, making grunting noises, with its dick hanging out almost to the ground.

    the outdoorboys channel guy says spray is better because you can spray it liberally when you THINK there might be a bear as deterrent

      But bears are actually attracted to pepper spray unless it gets shot up their nose.
      They roll around in the residue

    morons who think they're automatically gun experts despite no stress training or military background will say gun to be edgy. Most of you would be quicker with the spray.

    Guns and spray are both equally effective AND inaffective to deter off a charging bear. Whether it works or not really depends on why the bear is charging you to begin with.

      If those are the only choices, I'm going with the gun since that's what I'm trained with and it won't fail on me from being out in the sun too long (as spray has failed me before - why don't those cans have pressure gauges like fire extinguishers do?)

      irl, I'll just load two shots of pepper ammunition into my revolver. The few times I've needed them, they worked well enough - and if they don't, there's still the other three shots left.

      >Guns and spray are both equally effective AND inaffective to deter off a charging bear.
      Neither of them are meant to deter the bear, though. The pepper blocks it's sight (from tears) and nose (from pain) and gives it trouble breathing so it can't follow you while you run, while the gun wounds it, hopefully badly enough that it'll die before reachin you.

      Either way, you need to hit before the bear (or boar, dog etc) is too close, and be able to avoid the first charge, then run.

      If you want to actually be able to stop an attacking animal, you need a baor spear, a sword or a large caliber automatic (and not a "muhgunz" large caliber like .50AE, but rather something like a 12ga slugger like the brits use for hunting).
      But really, 99/100 times, animals will just try to escape. in my experience, wolves, boars and bears (asian black bears) always run. Only stray dogs attack sometimes.

          They are, but they got more hands on experience than the rest of the branch when it comes to guns, but if they're not into guns besides what the military has taught them, then I don't care about their opinion. You got way to many people who are like 92 Yankee thinking they're experts because "they served" so somehow their opinion is suppose to be taken seriously.

          Military are morons in general, because you have to be moronic to actually join the military. No intelligent indivudal would actually join those garbage institutions in the modern world. They are the absolute last homosexuals I'd ever trust when it comes to advise on firearms.

          If you're smart you take an MOS that can be used in the real world when you get out. I know multiple guys who went in for trade like MOS, that are now electricians, mechanics, shit like that.

    I don’t care what you soibois say, I carry my colt .45 everywhere. I could put 3 rounds between a bears eyes and drop it dead, that security is worth the weight to me.

    Why do people constantly worry so much about shit that's statistically way less likely than a ton of other ways to die outdoors. Spend more time planning against getting lost, or spraining an ankle, or slipping off a cliff

    Oh I don't care about saving a charging bear. I'll take whatever is more effective. I imagine much of the propaganda around how effective bear spray is comes from an agenda of wanting to save bears. They need to come off the endangered list, btw. Their numbers are well in the safe zone. They're becoming more of a problem again.

    I just want to know what is more reliable. If a 10mm does it then that's what I'll bring.

      Spray works when it works. If you're planning on using a pistol, you're hoping to get a brain shot. That's the only shot guaranteed to drop it mid charge, with a pistol. You're unlikely to need either. Whichever you choose, train with it or don't bring it at all. If you're smart and follow basic precautions, you'll be fine without either.

    I shot a grizzly bear in the heart with a 338 and its heart was a shred. Ran 125 yards and disappeared into the willows and died.

    Use the spray.

      You missed the entire point of that post. You're far less likely to be attacked by a bear than everything else listed, so you might as well account for everything else as well.
