Just ask this woman who saved her life from an attacking grizzly bera...
This is how to use a small .25 Cal pistol round to protect yourself from a black grizzly bear. You won’t ever see this caliber recommended for big game hunting in any hunting magazine.
Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With 25 Cal Pistol
This is a story of self control and marksmanship with an itsy bitsy shooter by a woman against a fierce predator.
What is the smallest caliber you trust to protect yourself?
The Beretta Jetfire:
While out hiking in Alberta Canada with my boyfriend we were surprised by a huge grizzly bear charging at us from out of no where.
She must have been protecting her cubs because she was extremely aggressive.
If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire with me I would not be here today!
Just one shot to my boyfriend's knee cap was all it took…….the bear got him and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace.
It's one of the best pistols in my collection……...
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Biggest issue I have with the .32 ACP is the issue of possible rim-lock.
Otherwise, when loaded with FMJ, it is a reasonable choice.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

Nice!!!!! I even think the 22lr would be good for bears. Just shoot your partner in the knee and RUN!!. Good story. Although I use my p-32 for ultra deep concealment and riding my mountain bike. Ya its not the best gun but at least I have something with me. Stay safe.
I hope you know that if this story gets around to people where you live at your choices in new boyfriends will be greatly reduced.....

A Gun without Ammo is called a door stop.
Anecdotal, from an old farmer who bought a Smith in .32 S&W Long, looked like a model 10 left out in the rain and then dried too fast, it shrunk. Cute little thing.
They were slaughtering hogs.
Normally they just shot the pig with a .22 rifle.
He used that little Smith revolver instead.
They dug the slug out of the rear ham.
This with a between the eyes presentation.
His father instructed him not to use that pistol on any more hogs, it ruined too much meat.
One shot does not conclusive evidence make, but it does make for an interesting tale at least!

Hey, now I remember. I had a lunatic problem too, but I got a divorce!
You don't have to be the fastest runner when being chased by a bear, you just have too be able to out run one person...
