Hunters, take note of this....

On Bud's Forums the question came up: what is the smallest caliber you trust
to protect yourself...

My personal favorite bear defense gun has always been a Beretta Jetfire in
.22 short! I've found over the years when hiking in bear country I never
leave without it in my pocket. Of course we all know the first rule when
hiking in the wilderness is to use the "Buddy System". For those of you who
may be unfamiliar with this it means you NEVER hike alone, you bring a
friend or companion, even an in-law, that way if something happens there is
someone to go get help. I remember one time hiking with my brother-in-law in
northern Ontario . Out of nowhere came this huge brown bear and man was she
MAD! We must have been near one of her cubs. Any way if I had not had my
little jetfire I'd sure not be here today.
That's right, one shot to my brother-in-law's knee cap and I was able to escapeby just walking at a brisk pace. That's one of the best pistols in my safe!

At least the bear had a good dinner, but I am certain your brother-in-law did not enjoy the experience.
