I am being dead up serious, I need something for taking down a grizz and carrying around town. I know it sounds crazy but like they say go big or go home.

What in the name of the Wide World of Sports makes you think a 45-70 with a stubby bbl will take down a griz- and not break your wrist when you shoot it? How about a derringer in .600 Nitro Express? You DO understand what a 45-70 IS- and that it is NOT 45 Colt?

You have a lot of trouble with grizzlies there in Kentucky? I know lots of people that carry lots of things for bears up here, don't know one that carries a .45/70 revolver. .500 Smiths are becoming popular, but you see a lot for sale "only been fired 6 times".

Maybe it's been a while, you know, 10,000+ years since the last Grizzly sighting in those parts. . . Plus, I doubt you or most of us here could even put a follow up shot anywhere close to our target after the recoil of that cartridge in a pistol (which probably exists in some weird novelty set-up).

Black Bear would probably be your biggest (in size, not thickness) threat and a heavy .357 is "Going Hard" enough for most of them. C'mon guy. . . abandon ship.

freefall, Only fired 6x .500 S&Ws ! ? ! I'd have me one. If you pick one for a steal I'd gladly trade you for a good piece (revolvers, ARs, AKs, SGs, etc.) I've never came across one for less that a grand here and that includes used items. . .

Go to YouTube. Type in 45-70 revolver. See if you still want one.

45-70 is a rifle cartridge. Rifle cartridges do not work very well in very short barrels the powder tends to be slow burning so in a short barrel uound up with a huge muzzle flash and very little real power.

Since most of the energy would be wasted I don't think the recoil would be much worse than a 44mag. Pick an actual pistol cartridge. Since your talking handgun something that uses fmj at high velocity to reach the vitals is what you need.

Pistols lack weight of bullet so anythin that expands in a smaller handgun prolly will have a difficult time getting to the goods.

If I had to pick a handgun for bear I would prolly take a ruger blackhawk in 45lc using 300 grn hardcast bullets or a 44 mag using hardcast 300grn bullets. Both loaded at or near max
