Glock 20 is the answer.

sig 229 or G26. Most of the time Ill take the SCAR to.

Glock 17.

It's what I've got. My first choice would be a Glock 20 or a 44 or 357 wheel gun.

I usually just carry my Glock 36 everywhere I go. I do have a 3" Ruger GP100 for that purpose, but I haven't picked up a good holster for it yet.

Nothing. I will carry a knife for bushcraft, but don't see the need to have a pistol on me. I rarely carry a firearm on me, unless I am hunting.

Long gun is a Mossberg 590A1.

Used to be a 4 inch S&W 686, loved that gun but got a great deal on it and traded it up. Now it's my Glock 23 and occasionally the Ruger MKIII 22/45 in conjunction.

Carried the g17 yesterday while hiking and collecting wild hucklberries.


I was wearing waterproof boots and my feet were SOAKED from the undergrowth dripping down into my shins/socks.

I think its plenty to piss off a bear enough so that he'll have no question as to if he is going to kill me or not.

No, we have bears, and mountain lions. I camp on islands, so i've only ran into a few bears. They don't f*ck with you if you don't f*ck with them though. There is nothing to be scared of in the wilderness. The only time I go deep into the woods is when I am hunting anyways.

I mostly carry a handgun for encounters with people.

I've seen a few sick animals, but none that I ever had to shoot.

Everyone is extremely concerned about bears, I'm not (Keep camp clean and chances are you'll be G2G.)

If I was, I'd carry bear guard, not a 45ACP.

I've never seen one in real life. Only pictures, TV, and hanging on the wall. Needless to say, they aren't high my my "look out for" list around these parts.

1911, its big enough and loud enough so that anything it doesn't kill will still re-evaluate any further actions.

Hey I get that. But this year we actually had one walk through our campsite at O-dark-thirty in the Boundary Waters. Black bear you can bluff, or scream, or throw rocks at, and probably turn'em away. Moose, well, they're just 1200 lbs of mean with antlers, and blind to boot.

Depends on where I am. If I am somewhere there might be bears, I carry the biggest-bore handgun I own, a Kimber 45. If I am more worried about humans, I carry a Glock 19.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 12:47:58 PM EST
My 629 also, glad I'm not the only that gets to appreciate the magnificent power, reliability and feel of a S&W N-Frame.

Depending on the reason for the excursion, I will sometimes carry my Freedom Arms 83 in 454.

Forest / Swamp trips and a revolvers go hand and hand.

My EDC is a Glock 17, but when I'm hiking or camping, I carry an 870.
