    If you knew you wouldn't need a gun you likely wouldn't take one with you. If you KNEW you'd never need additional penetration, you'd probably never carry FMJ. (And that's fine.)

    Too many times I have ended up in a situation that I did not intend to end up in. Ending up in black bear country... I'd prefer FMJ maybe. If I have it then I might just switch out mags. Sure, if I KNEW I would end up there I might take a .44 or a rifle but I don't normally carry those.

    I know what everyone says about bear encounters but I'd still rather have SOMETHING to defend myself with.

    And again, you never know what situation you might end up in. I just wanted options - options carried daily on me.

    Thanks for all the advice - particularly the ammo links. I'll check 'em out!

    Thanks again!
