I know too many gun enthusiasts with a CCW that are do not even know/follow the 4 Rules of Firearms. Too many wannabes that think they know it all which is true for anything. Most experts in anything will never tell you they are an expert.

Thank you everyone for the great responses! I've learned about some new firearms I might have to look into for my next purchase. Also, I'm SO glad to see there are many people educated on firearms here on ATS, I was waiting to hear someone say "man I always go to my 9mil dawg, Its the easiest to hold sideways..." or something along those lines. So thank you for the informative responses!
And I understand there are better options than a .45ACP against a bear (obviously a 12 gauge slug), I was just referring to one of the best options in the handgun family. I should have been more clear.

Unless left handed.
But notice the pic...Its a........revolver.
Thought you were generalizing - yeah revolvers are very easy and reliable and 'safe' to use.
You would have to be a total moron to mess one up!

The Thompson Contender? Man, those are awesome. Back in high school, a good buddy's dad had one he'd let us take out. Single shot, break-over action, about a 10-12" barrel with a decent 4x scope up top. Amazing accuracy.
Chambered only in .223, we still called it the "Hand Cannon." More than a few coyotes met their end from that thing.
Almost identical to this one, but with a higher gloss finish on the wood, and a checkered foregrip.
