Now that we decided what is the proper firearm and caliber for defense against a bear, what is the correct shot placement for a charging bear? What is the proper shooting stance? What is the proper shooting grip?
Most likely you will stick it in his ear while he is chewing on you. Hate to be a killjoy but the chances of stopping a charge with a .40/.45/10/.44 are not good. Mentally be prepared and don’t let go of that gun! I had a buddy jumped in the caribou hills while packing out. Another buddy shot the bear off him.
