    You and a friend are confronted by a large Grizzly Bear

    You and a friend are fishing in a remote section of yellowstone Park.
    You have just concluded an epic day of fishing for wild cutthroat trout and are preparing to head down the trail to your car wher you will drive back to yellowstone lodge for an equally epic dinner and cocktails. Against park regulations, you have packed a 44 caliber pistol but only have 2 bullets left. You also have a can of bear spray also known as bear perfume. As you approach the trail a Very large Grizzly charges from a distance of 100 ft. what do you do?

    I'd use one of the rounds to shoot you in the leg, and leave the area very quickly.

    Good luck.

    Most people have a better chance of spraying the bear. Let's face it, unless you are military or law enforcement drawing a bead on a charging bear and double tapping him with a large caliber firearm ain't gonna happen. That's why shotguns are better for self defense and so is bear spray. Statistics also say the same.

    7 days without fishing, makes one weak.

    Re: You and a friend are confronted by a large Grizzly Bear

    I'll hit it with pepper spray first to slow it down, that will give me time to draw a bead on its heart/lung area and double tap that bitch right (if it doesn't retreat). Although with a 44mag, its not really a double tap, more of a shoot, recover from the recoil, aim-shoot. I may not be military or a cop, but I was bowling pin champ for a while back in the day.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    I'm afraid that a shotgun would only piss off a charging grizzly bear. One might just want to take a different tack and put it under one's chin.

    Re: You and a friend are confronted by a large Grizzly Bear

    A 12gauge with jacketed slugs is exactly what you want. My friend lived up in AK, and they have a special round for bears. I believe its a hollow-point slug filled with 00-buck.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.

    Re: You and a friend are confronted by a large Grizzly Bear

    You're all stupid... By some of the "logic" I've heard from some of you, why not just say 3 our fathers, 2 hail mary's, etc... Send your kids to the center of town to get stoned (right after you auction your daughters off for slavery) and call it a day!!! If you believe in this, you will be saved.

    On another note, why not question why God would send the bear in the first place? I know... God doesn't like you and probably meant to hand each of you a gun so you could shoot yourselves 1 time each in the leg and just to make the bear happy (god loves bears) he'll let the bear finish you off.

    Thank god for guns (and bears) and mosquitos and a whole bunch of other things like war and foxholes (so you'll have a place to pray) and NIKE because God wants your feet to be comfy when you're sitting in your foxhole and AIDS (gotta thank the big guy for AIDS) and car accidents and train wrecks and money (god LOVES your money!!!! He loves your money so much, he has his name inscribed on every cent and dollar in your pocket (unless you're me, I cross his name out with a sharpy and replace it with my name)).

    have fun!

    For someone who doesn't believe, you sure do like to think and write about... "It"

    Thank God.
