A large Black Bear broke into a family's home outside of Anchorage last nite. The home owner thought it was a person breaking in. He grabbed his Glock 40 and went to investigate. Much to his suprise what he found was a Black Bear. The home owner ended up killing the Bear with his Glock. The police officer that came to investigate said it was a very large bear. Who would expect to have to defend against a bear in ones own home. Guess in Alaska we may want to keep a 454 under the pillow instead of 40 or 45.

or 12 gauge


okay perhaps something with more capacity and a stock

only 40sw ammo I would consider for that are Doubletap,Buffalobore and handloads of Hodgdon Longshot Max loads preferbly 180gr screw JHP for bear would rather get the penetration. would hope that bullet goes 1100fps+

I have a black bear that comes to vist once or twice a week on average... He likes to tip over our trash and snack... Well the other night I got a real close look at him...

The 40 went back into the closet and the 10MM came out for the summer...

As Steve Koski said a shotgun with slugs wouldn't be a bad idea. Personally I'd take a rifle. A 35 Rem., 308 Win., 30-06 Spr., 444 Mar. a 45-70 ect. ! :) :beer: :rollsmiley:

My dad wired up a bird feeder to keep the squirrels out once. He electrocuted a racoon the first night. It's been a couple of years since he had it plugged in, but the squirrels still leave it alone.
