      Saying that it was extremely chaotic situation would be a massive understatement! This guy kept his cool, used what he had on hand correctly and ,fortunately, came out with a "win". He's got huge ass brass balls!!!

          Clear example of why you need to carry 10mm or greater in bear country. This was a black bear, and not even a very big one by Alaska or Montana standards, and he had to empty 15 rounds into of .40 into the bear. If the bear had been attacking the man he would be dead.
          Know your rights/Refuse peacefully to consent to a search /Ask if you are free to go or are being detained/Even if you are not doing anything wrong the 4th Amendment protects you against unreasonable searches/Never say anything to law enforcement even if you think it will help you/If questioned you should clearly and unequivocally request that you would like to have an attorney present and defer any questions until then/Never go to prison because you are afraid to go to jail.

            Not to mention a change of ammo. No HPs in bear country, gotta go hard cast bullets or even FMJs. The hide of a 400 pound bear will stop an HP bullet pretty quickly. I have two bear heads on the wall, neither would have cared about a HP bullet judging by the postmortem examination of the two..

          It reads as he was not set up for a bear intruder more like a home defense setup, which the .40 in whatever platform is perfectly fine for. For bear, I’d prefer a LAWs rocket but that’s just me…
