Let's face it. The minimum we should all be carrying in grizzly country is a mini-gun.

A guide has to protect his client and that can mean getting between the hunter and a wounded very P O bear. I knew a couple that were carrying African double rifles and one that carried a 10 gauge double. The 458 Winchester Mag became very popular when it came out.

Is there a conversion barrel/kit to get his glock up to 10mm?

When was the last time I read an article about a person being attacked by a pack of starving wolves? Can't say I ever have. Plenty of movies about these kinds of things, but in real life, not many stories that have been proven. As for 17 rounds of 9mm in a bear, especially a Brown/Grizzly; as most articles state: Unless you hit the central nervous system or heart, good luck stopping it. I've read plenty of stories about people on drugs that don't stop after a half a dozen 9mm rounds; that is why a lot of people including police like the 45acp or 40S&W, more energy. What's the FBI carry gun The TRP Professional 45, what do most police carry now, 40S&W. They're using these to stop humans, not creatures that way 1000 pounds or better. Me, I carry my 1911 with 8+1 shot capacity with an extra 8 and also bring the 44 mag when in big bear country, sometimes the 460V.

I haven't read articles anywhere that say Hydro Shok will stop just about anything. In fact most articles will tell you that hollow points are not the ammo of choice when confronting heavy skinned furry animals. Expansion will be lost when plugged with fur and thick skin. You need something that will penetrate that coat. Round tip FMJ, some suggest Hard Cast and some say that the Leverevolution FTX tip by Hornady would probably work. It's not the same as the regular Flex Tip they have, this is a big pointy plastic tip that prevents the plugging of the hollow point that surrounds it, and the tapered tip penetrates better and cuts through the air better. It's available for revolvers in 357Mag 140g, 45LC 225g, 44Mag 225g & 460Mag 200g.

I gotta think Hossfly is on the right track; look for a black-market M79 and some sabot/canister rounds in 40mm. They always served me well! Better yet, put that bell on your pack, maybe two or three just to be sure, and DON'T have the confrontation! Keep your .40 for coyotes if they get close. As for wolves, the records of actual wolf attacks on humans is pretty bare, they don't like us even though they will keep us under surveillance. Like in any human/wild animal interaction; you are in their territory, be a good guest and don't look for trouble.

Glockaholics, is there a way to up his .40 to handle the more potent 10mm round?

The ownership of this territory is subject to debate; i've never seen a coyote with a lease/deed.

Well everyone is just a subject matter expert aren't they. And yes we carry 40 s&w and I've never heard any other police officer complain about it. This is just one of those never ending convorsations. You can kill anything with a 22 but is it preferred .... No I just told the original poster that if all he has is his 40 than down worry it can handle it. And I have been attacked by a wolf bub so don't try and act smart and I live eny Ohio where "wolf do not live "

Wherever you are in life, even within human (or so-called human) territory, it is always to your advantage to follow those parameters.
