This is the actual story that appears to have originated on the back packer forums. It shows how even a small gun can be used to protect you from large carnivores.

Woman Stops Grizzly Attack With .25 Cal Pistol

Consider the following testimonial about the Beretta Jetfire .25 caliber pistol:

"While out hiking in Alberta, Canada with my husband, we were surprised by a huge sow grizzly bear charging at us from out of nowhere. She must have been protecting her cubs because she was extremely aggressive and on us almost immediately. If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire with me, I would not be here today!

"Just one shot to my husband's knee cap was all it took. The bear got him, and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. That little Beretta is one of the best pistols in my collection."

Octo and I just make a lot of noise and bang stones together. Works great, and we usually have firecrackers and our puppeh as backup.

What I drew from the story is a woman needs a big strong man to protect her.

Before the survivor goes back into the woods she is going to need to find another big strong man.

Seems like any man would do with that sort of plan.

Women.... 13.gif

Can't trust them...

That's why they aren't allowed on Pirate or fishing vessels.

It's not just women... scream.gif

The Finnish people, on the other hand, were believed by others to be able to control weather. As a result, Vikings refused to take Finns on their oceangoing raids. Remnants of this superstition lasted into the twentieth century, with some ship crews being reluctant to accept Finnish sailors.

You want a larger (and more attractive) target because you can't afford to miss.

Well then maybe a grossly obese man would be the hiking companion of choice. You probably wouldn't have to shoot a single bullet. Although it might be a problem getting such a man go hiking to begin with. hmm.gif

Wait a minute,the lady shot her husbands knee cap? or am i reading it wrong?

Finally someone goes into bear country properly armed...

I was getting really sick and tired and more than a little disturbed always hearing about people getting ripped apart and eaten by wild animals...

Then finding out almost every time how those people were camping and hiking and jogging and climbing around totally unprotected,with no mace and no guns,where they already know theres wild bears and wolves and mountain lions...

"Lions and tigers and bears oh my!

I mean come on! is that stupid or what and yet that keeps happening again and again...

Do they think that hungry instinctive wild animals are only ever going to tear apart and devour someone else and "never me" !?

Or are some people just too naive and ignorant?

I presume (unless you are the husband) that it works like throwing a steak to a guard dog.

No one turns down a free meal.

Two guys are in the woods camping out when a bear attacks them. They both manage to make it up a tree.

While the bear sniffs around the camp food. The first guy takes off his hiking boots and starts to lace up his tennis shoes.

As the bear comes back to climb the tree the first guy throws his hiking boots at the bear. The second guy looks at the climbing bear and his sneaker shod friend and yells you can't outrun a bear!

The first guy replies, "I don't have to outrun the bear..."
