What would be your choice for self defense against wildlife in the following areas?

1) Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, Alaska)
-bear spray
-I'd look at a 454 Casull or 500 in at least a 5 or 6" barrel

2) SW USA
-bear spray
-454 Casull or hottest 44 Magnum load

3) Rest of USA
-44 Magnum or 357 Magnum
-bear spray

What would you choose or recommend for bear and/or coyote/mountain Lion?

Bear spray sure don't hurt in bear country, but as you are wise enough to already realize, it's awfully good to be able to back it up with a powerful sidearm.

Any of those places if there were large mean critters, I'd personally be inclined toward a double action .44 Magnum with deep-penetrating bullets like the super hard cast 320 grain SSK.

best,
Mas
