We also have CCW, I usually carry a 22 with me. But we also have a vicious sounding dog. The deaf Jack Russell, but he will run and hide. When we get a place that says "No weapons. No guns. etc" it goes into the safe.

The only thing that has been attempted. When we camped since the late fifties was a loaf of bread. Had to chase that raccoon for about 100 feet before he gave up.

I just safely returned from a very harrowing experience that happened during a rather short hike to only explore a possible new route to my favorite hiking trail that was less dangerous from rockslides that happen very often on my usual route. It was only about a 30 minute hike, so I only stuffed a single .22 short into the barrel of my Jetfire before slipping it into my pocket along with an 8-shot magazine of .25ACP in case I needed it. Since there was nobody else around at the time, I had to rely on my idiot brother-in-law to take along as my “buddy” for the short trip.

We hadn’t gone more than a half-mile into the heavy timber when, out of nowhere, there suddenly came a huge sow grizzly bear crashing through the brush and charging straight toward us at full speed. I guess she must have had a cub around because she was mad as heck and coming to kill both of us in an instant. There was no place to run, no time to run (can’t outrun a grizzly anyway), and I’m standing there with nothing but a tiny little Beretta Jetfire loaded with one .22 short in my hand.

Laugh if you wish at its effectiveness, but it only took one well-placed shot to my brother-in-law’s kneecap and I was able to escape a major bear attack by only walking away at a brisk pace

I LOVE THIS STORY...

CCW when camping in the states and a declared shootgun when traveling through Canada. Have never needed either but I believe in being prepared.
