    First post.....

    Last week I picked up my first Glock to add to my collection. It is a Police trade in G22 from Scottsdale gun club. I paid a fair price of $319. So far Im real happy with it. The week before a friend sold me his unfired SA XD45 tacticle for $380. Both are top notch weapons.

    Cant wait to go Grizzley Bear hunting, what flavor should I try on the beast first, the .40 or the mighty .45? :rofl:

    It depends on which one throws the best and how much attention you want the bear to give you......:supergrin::supergrin:

    Bear HUNTING....or...bear HUGGING???
    You'll have MUCH better luck bringing down a grizzly if you're within HUGGING distance.....
    Of course...by then, the bear will most likely be doing some "hugging" of its own...
    IMHO....the handgun hunting is best left to the likes of Elmer Keith....who DID use something a tad larger than what you intend to "pack"....:whistling:
    Did someone mention a 45-70 Glock coming????????:shocked:
    GAWD!! I gotta HAVE one!!
    (along with a new pair of hands.....and some new "brass".....-and I DON'T mean CASINGS!!!)

    You could take the new Glock 30/30 lever action pistol and be ok. But we all know .45 stops even trains:upeyes:

    Either would work well.







    Just remember to take someone you don't like as a hiking buddy. When the griz approaches, shoot the hiking buddy in the leg before you start running.

    Trying to clean up the gene pool, are we?

    By the way a 45 will work as long as it looks like this, 450 Ackley mag.;)

    The answer I always heard was bring a G26. That way it won't hurt so much when the bear shoves it up your ***. :rofl:

    Either of those calibers will work equally well. It's all about shot placement. Don't put the barrel to your temple. You may just wound yourself. Place the barrel in your mouth tilted slightly upwards. Works every time. :wow:

    I thought so but had to ask. I have a co-worker that bought a Glock 22 to take on a hunt in bear counrty for protection against bears.
