I will be travelling into a very rural area of N.C. in a few weeks to a friends property. There are bears roaming around, and on previous trips, we have seen them 50-60 feet away. However, they USUALLY want to get away from us ASAP.
So, what if, one attacks or meanaces us?
Note: I am not looking to "hunt" one, but will defend us against one.
I wil be carrying a 9 MM with a 4" barrel and/or a 642 38.
Choices of ammo?
FMJ or hydrashoks for the 9? or
158 Gr lead SWC reloads, or 125 gr SWCJHP winchester for the 38?
