Oh Shit! Grizzly Bear Charges Mountain Bikers
I agree completely. Bearspray is the first thing I pull out. I rode almost 2200 miles last year and I saw only a few bears. A few years ago I saw 4 bears in one 15 mile ride. I live on the edge of Glacier Park and we see bears a lot. Most of the time a gun is just for scaring the bear. I few shots in the air and they are gone, but not always.

When I do my backcountry BIKING trips my pack usually weighs 30+ lbs. Thats a lot of weigh to carry on a bike. Hiking is another thing. I would carry a 454 Casal hiking and my pack can weigh 50+ lbs. Weight has always been a concern when biking.

Who is going to carry a .50AE, .460, or .500 Smiths when they ride on a bike? The only handguns that are reasonable to carry are the 10mm, 357, scandium 41, or scandium 44 mag. Anything bigger and you are carrying too much weight IMO. I just choose to carry a 10mm. No one is arguing who's gun is bigger. No one is even arguing. This is a great discussion.

The 10mm Double Taps have 1120. I've taken the 41mag, 44mag, and 10mm and shot all bear loads into a pile of magazines. The 44mag only went trough a few more magazines. I know this isn't the best test, but the 10mm is an amazing gun IMO. It has really been overlooked in the past, but may people are seeing its potential. I run a 4.6" barrel now and will be upgrading to a 6.1" soon. The extra 1.5" barrel should get me up to 1300 or so.

I might get one or two shots off as its running at me, but I will unload it into its belly or head while its chewing on me. I use the Diamond D holster on my chest. http://www.diamonddcustomleather.com/Chest_Holsters.php A charge like in the video is pretty rare. Usually you see the bear and have time to draw on it and unload, but it is true... not all the time. In all my bear encounters and I've had a few, I had time to draw and I was ready with bear spray in one hand and gun in the other.

If I cant kill a bear with my 10mm and Double Tap 230g bullets in 21 shots I deserve to be eaten. :) I use to carry a 41 mag Scandium S&W with 230g bear loads, but 6 shots just didn't seem like enough. On long trips in the back country I carry 2 clips for my 10mm.

You are suppose to stand your ground and raise your bike over your head to look big. You are NOT suppose to run from a bear. They will catch you no problem. I had this happen when I was by myself and the mother bear had two cubs. I raised my bike above my head and yelled and screamed and the mother bear ran away. I was lucky.
