    Minimum bullet mass was listed as 15.5 g, which initially confused me. They mean grams; it works out to about 240 grains.

    "Handguns for which an applicant is seeking a permit for use as protection against polar bears shall have a minimum calibre of 44."

    That's gonna' tick off the 10MM fanboys.:couch:

    Lol! "Handgun protection from Polar Bears." There's no need for a minimum calibre designation here. You ain't gonna protect yourself from no Polar Bear attack with a handgun!! If'n you goes out on the ice with a handgun thinking you're gonna protect yourself from a Polar Bear attack, you dead already!

    Silly Gooses...

    Everyone knows the 9mm is the new magic caliber.

    Besides those pesky .44's recoil too much.

    You poke a hole in one, they die. It’s not rocket surgery.

    Bears are not terribly hard to kill.
    polar bears? None. But I work with two guys who have.


    I’ve killed dozens of bears. Already killed one this season. You guys are making it a lot more than it is.

    Yeah, well, there's a guy that killed a Kodiak bear in Kodiak AK. of all places, with a 9mm too but that doesn't mean a 9mm is a good choice for bear protection either.
    I love how people gotta argue about everything here. I'm out.

    Statistically the 9mm is very well represented in bear shootings, with excellent results.


    I do understand why you’d want to post something snippy and dip out though.

    His choice of ammo became excellent advertising for Buffalo Bore. It worked exactly as advertised.

    That wasn’t Kodiak, that was on mainland AK and the shooter was one of the biggest names in bear hunting and a personal friend.

    The lack of thumbs should give you the edge in a gunfight.

    Why the heavy artillery?

    Back in 1971 a NYPD officer, Patrolman Charles Dlugokecki of the Central Park Pct., shot and killed a polar bear with one round from his .38 cal. revolver. Experts said the bear came from Sweden.

    I bet most didn't know polar bears inhabited New York City.
