Rule 3 is a very good rule indeed! There are several creatures that can argue that point for sure! Glad he survived!Rule Number 1
Have a gun.
Rule Number 2
Have ENOUGH gun.
Rule Number 3
If you have enough gun, then don't play around and load it like it's enough gun.
Anti-human 'self defense' loads ain't enough for dealing with creatures known to argue the point as to whether or not man is on top of the food chain.
I got a chuckle out of that line, too.His first BIG mistake was being worried about hitting one of the dogs. Sorry pet lovers, but if I have to kill every dog in the general area, that bear is NOT going to get me.
I did find this line to be rather funny though: "...Bridger decided to retreat. He turned and hopped to the next boulder, then the next. He was mid air to the third when he saw dogs moving past him. In his fast mind-state, he realized this was bad..."
Again, we're approaching "quote of the year" on that one. (emphasized when quoted)
As a side note, I personally refuse to capitalize the name Glock. You never see an article written about a COLT 45, or a SMITH & WESSON revolver.
I disagree on that one, fbi were limp wristing "most obviously" , put it into the hands of someone that can handle it and it's a destructive caliber "hydrostatic shock" google it. I carry 16 rounds and I'd say that yogi and boo boo would both be on the smoker. But hey JMHO.This incident proves why 10mm was the original FBI choice for new handgun caliber. If you can take out a four legged miscreant like this bear (is it a grizzly?), the two legged kind should get the same result. The 40 Short & Weak was not enough of a difference to avoid the Bureau standardizing on 9mm. IIRC, the ballistics on the proposed FBI loading for 10mm were superior to that of the 230 grain FMJ 45ACP round. This incident makes me believe so, anyway.
