    I have both G27 and G30 and both are not bad to shoot at all. There really isn't that much difference in the size of the G30 and I would rather carry a 45 acp in Bear Country. You could always go a hair larger and carry a Desert Eagle .44. just a thought. :) DSC08840.JPG DSC08839.JPG

    If it has to be a semi-auto I’d go with a 10mm for bear. Something bigger would make me feel better though.

    Nice, I have yet to shoot a P320 may have to get one someday. Just picked up a HK VP9SK in 9mm and LOVE IT.

    I just got my son a P320 in 9mm a few weeks ago. He loves it.

    If you want small and powerful, I'd look at the Charter Arms Pug or Bulldog revolvers. They guarantee 5 shots that will go bang, and you can get the pug up to .41 magnum if your wrist is strong.

    I have a Glock 23 .40 cal that I carry in bear country which is about everywhere in E Ky now. I feel better having 13 rounds in a gun that shoots really well. Actually 14 if you keep one in the chamber.

    Bad medicine. I let my buddy borrow mine when he went to Alaska on a moose hunt. Luckily he never had to use it.

    Yes lucky that I never had to use mine on those bears too. Always saw bears grizz, and blacks whenever was in the bush. Lot of them there!
