I hope you already have reservations where you expect to camp, the campgrounds and rec areas are full up here.I am taking the family on a tent camping trip to Colorado, where there is a risk of black bears and mountain lions. For protection against both four and two legged aggressors, would I have a ballistic advantage with a 357Sig or a .45? I’m accurate and comfortable with both. Thank you for your replies.
I didn't see anyone mention the moose. The bears and mountain lions are a bit of a problem at times but moose are the ones to really look out for. Moose don't fear humans and will suddenly go from ignore mode to full-on charge without warning and are not given to being shoo'd away. If you encounter a moose, give it a wide berth.
