Be careful with BB .40 +P. I didn't read the fine print and had a case rupture using that load in a 1911 with incomplete chamber support.

I carry a Glock 22, and so dies my camping buddy. I can tell you straight up, MAN is your threat. !

Bear spray also works quite well on people



........without all the tedious paperwork and legal issues of shooting them!

Spray is nice, but it is kind of difficult to make sure the wind is blowing the right direct if you are the victim of a sudden attack and if it works good on THEM, the wind can make it work well on YOU.

Yes it can. Do NOT ask me how I know.

Yep. If I was carrying .40 in the woods I'd have a full size gun with me -22 or, better yet a 35.

The G27 is no slouch, it's very concealable yet still packs a good punch. I've chrono tested 180gr at 1125 fps from mine so that's not bad at all. Sure it's no long gun, but for the size it packs a punch. 200gr is a great option too, and here's a good choice from Buffalo Bore:

I would opt for hardcast, I'm sure DoubleTap still offers their 200gr WFNGC hardcast, which would be an even better option since that's one fine bullet.


A 200gr hardcast around 1000 fps is going to penetrate well. Oh yeah, pack some bear spray, can't fathom having a bear thread without mentioning that.

Awesome velocity for such a short-barreled Glock.

A gun in the woods does not always need to be fired to deter the 2 legged threat. In my NW woods experience, just having it on my hip has swayed a couple threats from escalating. I do not think paperwork would deter me from defending my life in a situation where I am legally justified using lethal force.

I have choked, ate, inhaled enough CS gas in my life to realize it is not as effective as one wants to believe .. specially if you have deployed and used it. I know what's coming. BIGGEST can I ate: I got a can of CS gas dropped on me fighting out of a foxhole at a 3 way intersection, I ate that stuff straight up. They tossed it into my hole my while driving right next to my position. I threw the can out of the hole, climbed out, and returned fire at the fleeing vehicle just fine. .. minus the puke.

I think the approach everyone is recommending here is wrong. What you need for bears is beer. Lots of it. And not just any kind:

Carry your Glock since that is what you have. I would load 2 or 3 loads like the 180 grain bonded PDX 1 up first followed by either a 200 grain hardcast or flat point FMJ in the rest of the magazine. Cover the 2 and 4 legged threats. Then start saving up for a 4 inch 44 magnum revolver. Every outdoorsman should own one.

I routinely carry a H&K USP-40 when backpacking. I mostly carry 180gr. hollow points or sometimes 180gr. FMJ's. It's nice to see some purpose built ammo for this situation. I've honestly never loaded 200gr. bullets in the 40 - always figuring 180grs. was going to give me better perfomance.

The 40 is better than nothing for sure! I don't yet own a 44 Magnum and really wouldn'
t want to carry anything larger anyway. I like being able to carry something I normally carry and shoot.
