I carry a Ruger .45 American, bought my custom Kenai chest holster that I am patiently waiting for. Ran into a decent bull moose at 10-15 yards with my bow and decided it was time.

44 mag here.  I cant say for sure that it is sufficient for griz but its better than nothing.  I pair that with spray as well.

Im an advocate of carrying a handgun that you can shoot accurately under pressure. It that means a big revolver then do it, if its a small revolver thats fine, if its a semi auto then great.


I personally carry a Glock 20 (10MM) Loaded with 200gr Hard Cast Lead. I decided I shoot a Semi, faster and more accurate than a revolver. I can shoot a revolver just fine, but when it came down to business of drawing a firearm and putting rounds down range, I am more effective with the glock. So I chose to carry it over my 454 Casull. I run a Kenai Chest Holster and love it.

I carry a Glock 22 (.40), hip carry when hunting.  I really dont even notice it, so there's very little "cost" to doing so and gives some peace of mind.  I used to carry a revolver arguing they were more reliable, but after doing some training scenarios I realized that in the unlikely event that I ever do need to use a handgun in defense (either 2 or 4 legged) I want a lot more ammo than a revolver provides.

I carry a .40 XDm. Im quite accurate with it and feel very comfortable with it. Looking at getting a holster that I can put on my pack and carry that way.

Seems that not many have experienced our worked with charging bear scenarios. They don't stop much with noise and when that 9mm smacks their skull the charging is likely fueled even more
I am new to this.... all the help is appreciated for 2020 hunt!
