Yes, if you're out in bear country, it would be wise to have at least a. 44 magnum or better on your belt.
But in my earlier posts i argue ysr's choice of competition guns strictly from a target or combative gun point of view. I mention it a few times stating that I would not choose a huge 8 round revolver because 1, it s hard to conceal carry such a gun 2, i dont see the sense competing with a gun i can t carry 3, in combative situations (which you ll notice most shooting competitions are designed around) the revolver is not quite the proper gun for those types of competitions.
I was not arguing revolvers used in hunting situations... At all.
You guys turned it into a hunting w a revolver thread.
Round these parts, you have to be a little crazy to hunt these fuckers with handguns. I ve seen 12 ga slug bounce off boar skulls.
