In bear country I prefer a slung slug shotgun.

But for the 2 legged predators, I wear a combat 45 leather holster with a combat 45ACP in it.

Both is a bit much but even better.

They should not have run from the bear. When you see a bear you hold your ground. Yell at the bear and hit it with a rock. Some people hold their hands over their head to appear larger to the bear. Bears are dumb animals who do nothing but eat, sleep and fornicate. It is not in the nature of a black bear to attack something that is going to fight back.

Bears are not as dumb as you seem to think they are. Tahoe has some very polite smart bears. They have learned how not to get the rangers upset with them and still raid your food supply. There is one sow up there that has learned how to open bear boxes and car doors by using the door handle.

Just follow JTJ's advice. You will never know about a bear attack until after it happens. You are going to be hurt badly very fast. In most cases you will be only partially aware and most likely visually impaired.
The handgun must be above the waist near the center of your chest. The final crush will inhibit your ability reach down and pull your firearm. Your shots if possible will likely be point blank it will be a hair burner.
