Scenario: .44 mag revolver or .45 acp semi-auto pistol vs. grizzly bear?
Scenario 2. Run the same scenario with a 300 lb. BLACK bear please.
I'm just wondering if it's better to have more shots with a weaker semi-automatic pistol or less shots with a more power revolver.
The scenario came up as I watched a video of a Grizzly. charging. In order for the bear to reach the person it had to weave around some big rocks and trees so the shooter wasn't getting the best shot at the bear. It wasn't until the bear was ~30 feet away that the shooter had a clear shot.
The other reason why I asked about a .45 ACP was that many people have them and may not buy a .44 revolver for the 1 or 2 times a year that they go to mountains.
I asked specifically about the black bear being that it's in the weight range of a large man. Why couldn't a .45 ACP take down a black bear then?
