    Default Some thing new to the gun collection

    Well I want to do some backpacking and camping and some day hikes this spring and summer in Montana due to grizzly's being around. I wanted a light hand gun went to the gun shop to look what they had and got a idea what to get a few weeks ago. Well the other day I got this.



    A Taurus Tracker revolver stainless 44mag only holds 5 rounds enough if bear spray don't work or wind is blowing my way and it would be better to use the gun instead.

    Good plan. Start shooting early and from far away. Taurus makes excellent firearms. Essentially a South American S&W. This makes me recall the incident where a mother and her teenage son were hiking in AK armed only with a cell phone. The bear ate mom and screwed up the kid. Imagine having to watch you mother eaten by a wild animal?
