Fully agree the lil 410 dosent fit the bill for me either when a pissed off half starved black bear or mountain lion is lookin at u like a steak 12 guage with buck followed by a slug sounds good to me leave the 410pistol for rabid rabbits

.45ACP WILL KILL a brown or black bear. Who thinks it won't?

It's simple. 230 Grain HP ammunition= dead bear, mountain lion, wolf, rabid coyote, or meth-head hillbilly with a hard on.

Besides a .45, how about an AR-15 or M4 carbine chambered in 6.8? That's gonna do the job too..... There's also the S&W .50 Revolver.....

45! 45! 45! 45! 45!

Hate to burst that bubble of yours, but a 38 spl COULD kill a bear. Would I try, F*** NO! But you have fun with that adventure into Darwin award territory.
