What are you carrying "out there"
So, you are going backpacking in big bear country, and you decide to carry protection. Size and weight matter, a lot.

What do you take?

A chest holstered revolver, Ruger Redhawk .44 mag, .464 casull?

A .45-70 18" Lever?

A 18" shotgun with 3" grizzly slugs?

Something else?

RE: What are you carrying "out there"
Me, I would take a Glock 20 10mm. if I were on the run from a Bear, NOT, I would much rather have the maneuverability and the agility (not at really at this age anymore) with a pistol than try to fumble with a rifle. But that being said, carrying a pistol and a Sub 2000 (due to its foldability) might not be a bad thing.

I'd bring my Marlin 1895 45-70 with 405 gr. bullets, and my Glock 40 (10mm).
