We will be traveling with our RV this summer and will probably end up in bear country. We kayak, bike and hike. I always keep a 12 gauge next to the bed and in bear country I load slugs. When we hike I carry a pistol but I am trying to figure out which one. My ccw is good where we are going. Ruger SP101 2" 158gr TMJ 1100-1200fps 5rnds 28 oz loaded Glock 36 185gr TMJFN 1000fps 7rnds 28 oz loaded Steyr M40 165gr TMJFN 1150fps 13rnds 35 oz loaded 180gr FMJ 1000fps A 44mag or bigger would be nice but I dont have one. I will also have bear spray.
