It seems that too many people feel like they need a cannon or the like when in the woods to protect themselves from large animals. Can anyone tell me why they think any mammal (take your pick) with their hide/bones, etc. can take a 220 grain going at 1300+ fps and delivering more then 725fps.lbs to the skull or heart area and live? Just wondering? Is it that they think they will not be able to hit the head or vitals in the few available seconds they have and a bigger handgun might stop the charging animal even if hit in the leg for example? I for one trust my G40 10mm with Underwood 220 grain hard casts 15+1 to get the job done no matter where I am in the woods. I have a KKM 6" barrel and stainless recoil spring upgrades. Would like to hear your point of view/vote whether you share my view or not. And why if applicable? Cheers.
