Bears and Handguns

Joe Huffman takes an excerpt from a book on the topic.  Surprising, or perhaps not surprising, nothing seems to beat a shotgun loaded with 00 buck for dropping a grizzly, but rule number one seems to be the first rule of gunfighting: have a gun.

    Couple things.

    1. It wasn’t from a book, it was from a mailing list.
