    Hmmm, ANY carry is especially good for those of us who could not (under any circumstances) even climb the tree!

    That's about as likely as me outrunning a lightning bolt or a freight train.

    Luckily, I do carry a .45 autoloader and I know how to use it.

    Obviously because if you're OCing the bear will see the gun and choose to leave you alone, because bears would rather find an easy victim.

    I was on the river bank one day, OCing like I always do, when the river bank teller got this really suprised look! I asked her what was wrong, and she said a bear just walked in behind me with a ski mask on, butlooked at me, saw my gun, and ran back out the other way! Proof at last that OC deters bears!

    A squirrel saw me OCing in the woods and asked me why I carry a gun. I said, "holy crap! a talking squirrel!" Thento answer, I shot the squirrel, and ate him!

    To address the statement in the poster's caption that firearms are more useful than a camera: Not for McGuyver. He could build a bear snare, a bear tranquilizer,a bear hypnotizing machine or a jetpack using a 35mm (or digital!) camera, a shoestring, chewing gum, and the bear's own mucus. The only problem is, he needs you to distract the bear while he does it.

    ...Hope you have a gun...

    Not a view of a grizz I would ever want to see in person.

    ROFL at this entire post.



    ...I'm usually packing heat when tromping around in the woods. If you're going to carry in the urban jungle, why wouldn't you in the forest?

    OC is certainly preferable in this case due to quicker draw. However, situational awareness is the real key because if the bear is that close to you by the time you notice, it may be too late to even draw in time.

    Story:
    Grizzly climbs tree and kills Jogger.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Here's one that was found on a golf course in Harlan KY. This is why I carry when I play golf. The guy killed it with his two iron which means you have to get way to close to this beast. :shock:

    Yeah... lotta hikers... 'n a few campers I've read about. Women mostly. More women should carry. 911 won't do ya any good in the boonies... even in not-really-wilderness woods 'n stuff.

    I would have thought a chipping wedge would have been a better choice.

    911 in the city isn't much better. It relies on you surviving for 5-10 minutes before they get there, and 5 minutes is a long time.
