trail gun for zoobic safari

bringing the family to subic for a safari this weekend. friends tell me the vehicles are not that sturdy and i'll probably bring a carry piece just in case some wild animal decides to eat occupants.

what would you suggest i pack? i currently edc a 9mm auto but i think that would be too small if a tiger attacks, i do have a ptc for a 357 snubby and a 45 auto also. i know trail guns are usually 44mag and up but this is all i have.

which would you bring?

Not sure if you're serious hehe
But I doubt tigers will be stopped by a pistol unless youhit something vital
I've read they are the hardest cat to kill

Pero you might need a pistol to wake them up
the last time I've been there , they look bored to death

mas takot ako dun sa ostrich
gusto nila tumabi sayo sa train

Those tigers in Subic are hungry come tourist time.
And believe me they will eat you given the slightest chance (just ask the manong who will be feeding the tigers).
I carried 9mm ranger sxt's when our group toured the place but I was thinking kung magkano babayaran ko once I kill a tiger.

For reference watch this clip.

parang safe naman ang jeep.....pero for if you really want to carry rest assured a pistol is enough if you hit them where it counts,

Quote:
Pistol Versus Bear
One of the first deputies to start pulling triggers was Jonathan Merry. He settled the red dot of his Vortex optic on a gray wolf, and pressed the trigger of his M4. The animal was soon down and done. Merry returned to his patrol car, put the rifle inside and closed the door. He was about to enter the driver’s door and bring his patrol car back to the central scene when a black bear found him.
He saw the animal make eye contact. There were many directions in which it could have moved, but it lowered its head and charged him on all fours, growling. Outside the vehicle and unable to retrieve his rifle from inside it, he drew his pistol and fired.
The animal was coming full speed, and he has no recollection of aiming, only of focusing on its head and hoping to plant his shot in the brain.
The animal was 10′ away when he pressed the trigger of his department issue Glock 22.
The bear collapsed instantly from the single shot, its momentum skidding it virtually to Merry’s feet. He couldn’t see the wound in the bear’s furry head, but he figured it must have been a brain hit to drop the charging animal that fast. It looked as if the terrifying confrontation was over, but he knew how dangerous the animal would be if it regained its feet. With care — and with regret — he aimed the Glock this time and put a second 165-gr. Winchester Ranger-T .40 slug into the animal’s brain.
Before the night was over, he would also shoot a Bengal tiger, a full-grown lioness, three male African lions and a grizzly bear; all with the M4. After the close call with the black bear at the car, he wouldn’t be caught without a rifle in his hand again, for the rest of the night.

That is if you satisfy the lawful elements of self defense

But once there the tigers would be the least of your worries.

I suggest you wear comfortable shoes and a hydration bag. Senior citizens in our group compared the tour to the Bataan Death March and wished for A/C

I rode that jeep years ago and it appeared to be very sturdy. It is very unlikely for the tigers to get you from inside assuming they do become aggressive. Having said that, I still packed the only carry gun I had at that time, which was my g26, with a mini "switch" on it (alam nyo na yan).

I doubt if ever I emptied 3 mags that it would stop any attack if the tigers decided to make a meal out of us but it would have hurt them considerably.

i'd shoot the friggin driver(kayangkya ng 9 un) then feed him to the tigers to get away , 'cause if it gets to that, it would have been their fault.
