    10MM VS Grizzly Bear??

    Hey Guys,
    In a month or so my wife and I will be going to Yellowstone and I will be carrying my G29 while we are out hiking. I’M wondering what your thoughts are about the G29 being enough to do the job if needed. If so what type of ammo would be appropriate?
    Thanks.

    Against a Grizzly? 12 slug or a really big rifle round. I wouldn't want to be the one to find out if a 10mm would work on one as I am afraid I wouldn't like the outcome of it.

    In addition to firepower, I suggest some spray-power (Bear Spray):Counter Assault Bear Deterrent Spray - 10.2 oz. - Free Shipping at REI.com

    I wouldn't trust a 10mm against a bear. A good shot through the eye maybe, whew I'd hate to miss. Better than nothin I suppose

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that a 10mm or .44 mag or higher would be your best bet for defense of a grizzly unless you feel the need to lug around a shotgun or high powered rifle. If it were me, I'd take the 29 and a can of bear spray. Ive heard that air horns may work relatively well, but i don't know. Make a lot of noise when you're hiking and keep your food sealed tight and you more than likely won't see any.

    I agree with the others. The 29 is better than nothing, but noise and pepper spray is going to be your best bet.

    The thing to do with any semi auto handgun, possibly any hand gun at all when a grizzly attack is a possibility....
    1. Coat the gun with Salmon oil so when you throw it and run the other way, the bear may try and eat the gun and not your hiny.
    2. Rub KY on the gun so that when the grizzly has taken it away from you it will not hurt as bad while its crammed up your hiny.
    3. Most importantly send all your other guns to one of us for safe keeping before you take on the bear with a handgun.

    Seriosly, take some spray and carry a handgun because you want to, not because you think its going to drop a bear mid charge. Very few handgun (no glock) calibers have the penetration needed to bust through a bears face and jaws to get to its spine. The angle of the skull will be so flat nothing short of a rifle will penetrate it.......If you have a clear shot at the vitals then you aren't being charged and might sit in jail for poaching.

    The salmon oil and KY comments originated from people who have hunted and killed big bears with handguns. 44 AM,
    .475 and, .500 Linebaugh type handguns.

    I would say a 44 mag 300 grain Hard Cast @ 1200 fps or more would be a minimum (read all you got). for bear protection.
    "buckets of bullets" thats how you get better, if you think your pretty good, shoot another 10k rounds and you will be better.
    Its just my opinion, I tend to prefer them over yours!

    a 10mm has the power of a 41 magnum and just shy of a 44 magnum, they have also been proven to kill Grizzly/Brown bear.

    Yup... Grizzlies aren't invincible and their bones aren't made of steel. Though i will say, if you are near enough to a grizz for him to pounce you at full force from hiding, I really don't think there is much you can do period as their speed, strength, and will to maim you isn't going to be overcame with a couple unaimed shots in it's direction regardless of what you have.
