    Nice handgun John. Didn't realize you had large angry bears in your neighborhood. I don't give a hoot if you have a 20mm handgun, if you get too shook and can't hit the critter it does't make any difference.

    No grizzlies, but we do have occasional black bears passing by! As far as the big bore revolver, I just like 'em! I'm an Elmer Keith fan from way back, never missed one of his articles in Guns & Ammo and his stories of developing .44 magnum and .45 Colt loads, as well as big game hunting with heavy rifles. Always enjoyed reading Jeff Coopers articles too.

    I got my hands on a .357 magnum Ruger Security Six, when I was 15 years old, bought for me with money I earned in the log woods and hauling hay. I had an uncle who bought it for me, but that's another story! Anyhow, my love of powerful revolvers started there!

    Haven't seen one in the yard since this guy last year. I think he told his buddies to watch out for me. Amazing how fast they can move when they are being followed by 12 GA shell crackers.

    nf1e, them bears are nothing to fool with. I used to see them north of Chicago practicing when I was in grad school. They are fast, heavy and powerful....and they eat and eat!
    Lol
    Here in Arizona, up north, we have bears but they are not as big as your photo.
