That's a very cool story!! One shot with a 45 acp put that bear down.
I just sold a gun to a fellow (married to my 2nd cousin actually) and he used to be a
hunting guide in Montana and Idaho.

He told me a story about sleeping in a small building at their hunting camp base.
He and 4 other guys were sleeping in there and the door was missing, so they hung
a blanket up to keep the bugs and skeeters out. He said he woke up in the middle of the
night and he could hear something - and suddenly - the blanket moved and a bear stuck
his head in there and looked around!! And then he backed out...

So this guy sat up and carefully got ahold of his rifle and quietly put one in the chamber...
He sat there until sun-up. he said that bear stuck his head in there about a 1/2 dozen times,
but never went in any further. The bear did eventually leave. The other guys never woke up.
And when they finally did in the morning, they didn't believe him!!

When they went outside, there were tracks and a couple piles of bear crap - He said they
quit laughing at him then!!

He said he didn't want to shoot the bear for a couple of reasons - Shooting his rifle in the
little building they were in would have deafened everyone. And, it was dark - if he wounded
the bear, it just might charge in there and tear the hell out of everyone. And, it was such
close quarters, he said the bear could have gotten to him before he could get another
round jacked in the chamber and get aimed again.
So he wasn't going to shoot unless he had too!!

The HI-POINT will put you down :doublegun2: and don't care if you are as big as a bear!
I think a lot that was said(Responses) was just pulling our chain.

A good bear tube!?

I love that it was a Hi-Point at least with a Hi-Point he would have an effective bludgeon after he emptied those seven rounds.

One of my favorite sayings is that if you think my Hi Point 45 is such a pos lets stand at 20 feet and you shoot me with your kimber and I shoot you with my Hi Point.... of course since I have the pos that wont fire its only fair that I get the first shot ;)

Unfortunately saying that in an open forum these days will either get you titled as a nut job, a psycho gun owner or both!

I lived in stationed in Alaska (Fairbanks) twice for a total of eight years. A .45 to 44 mag is the preferred and proven handguns for bear protection along with a 12 gauge full of slugs. I was more scared of a wolf encounter than a bear.
