Thanks robalan, those articles are excellent!
robalan posted some nice links. Mark Matheny was attacked a few miles from where I live and I carry UDAP spray when I leave my house. Spray is my first choice. I have known many people who have used spray successfully against grizzles. I have used it only on black bears.
tig, No disrespect felt at all, I did ask for your and others opinions. I will try to find a bigger caliber to fire.
I did fire a 1911 45acp and was able to stay on target about half the time after a few clips. I'm glad the range is only about 10 miles away. I plan to buy a gun in a few months. The only gun I know will buy will be USA. Everything else is up in the air.
Stuck on buying American.....I have 3 words Kimber, Kimber, Kimber. Made in the good ol USA. Yonkers NY and absolutely top shelf. I have 4 and love em all! (Ultra Carry II, Pro Carry, Aegis and the new Solo....first 2 .45acp, the last 2 9mm)
I agree with Tig and Will... I like the Ruger Super Redhawk in .44 Mag. I have a bad wrist and I can deal with this one pretty well. Also, the Alaskan in .454...it's a shorty but it has tons of power.
If you're worried about GRIZZ, forget about what kind of pistol to buy ... just make sure you always travel with at least one person who can't run as fast as you.
The best defense is always a bear eating someone else ... especially ... someone you owe money to! Nuff said?
Yup...Ya don't have to outrun the Grizz....Just your "buddy". Trying to get my sister in law to go hunting with me!
Ruger 44, go big or stay home.
I got a sister-in-law I'd like to hunting with too. But the kind of hunting you do at a Ramada Inn.
You're just a dog!!! LOL!!
Could I book a room next to you guys?
No doubt it would be a vacation to remember!! Aside from that, I own a Colt Mk. IV Series 70 .45acp and am very partial to it. It has been mine since 78 and it has never failed me once. Excellent choice for the best non custom .45 auto!
If you have to name them, you don't own enough. Buy more! Nothing like a series 70 or prior. Couldnt agree more. Its the deep Blue that makes you fall in love.
I loved my MK IV/70, but my need was for concealment, so I went with the Officer's model, but made the mistake of a matte finish. My favorite was a Star PD in the 80s, but I 'shot-it-to-death'...eventually. (many, many in-betweeners)
Lately I've been looking at this 80 series 7+1 Defender at 21 ounces:

with out going custom,kinda like the kimber.....
I got the 1911 90 series Colt Defender .45acp quite awhile ago. Amazing accuracy at 25 yards, 22 oz, SS, 3 dot sights, 3.5 in bbl, thin. Never a single FTF, FTE, etc., in hundreds of rounds.
Got rid of the Hogue grips, but many like 'em.
It is now my favorite sidearm with 185gr +P Hornadys.
