My dad hunts in bear country and he carries an 8" .44 revolver (German police cowboy style) and it has saved his life. Only shoot a bear if you are sure you can kill it. A judge or a 44 will do the trick.
Gonzilla yes as you know the Germans have a long history of semiauto and machine pistols. The German police and military gave up on revolvers over 100 years ago. I am most interested in the German Police Cowboy handgun?
