But if the bear is wearing a puffy jacket and a hoodie, that 9mm is too weak. You'd better have .45acp. Just saying.

Off topic (a bit), but this NEVER gets old to me.

On that note, a high school classmate of my father's killed a mountain lion with a .25acp .( Many year after HS)

He was there, it was there, and the .25acp was his car gun de jour that time .

Thanks Doc.

I can see truth in advertising has always been a concern...

I wonder if he simply choked on it after he et the fella carrying it.

I once killed a rabid groundhog with a trenching shovel.









What it was doing with that trenching shovel I didn't care to find out...






If you ask nicely I might tell you of the time I shot an elephant in my pyjamas.
