I know for a fact that a 9 mm mite be a good round for self defense but for killing a large animal no way. I had to shoot a 1200lb horse. And all I had with me, Was my ruger 9mm. I was standing point blank to the horses head when I fired, between his eyes. All the horse did was take a step backwards and just stand there. I had to run to the house and get a bigger gun to finish it off I will never do that again.
So yes you would be very crazy if you went into bear country with a 9mm
