Though proficiency can be gained with even really powerful handguns. You're not going to be as fast as you would with a more reasonable gun and chambering,

This is why in one of the more widespread competitive pistol shooting disciplines you have major and minor power factor classes etc.

But, if you routinely encounter bears ar close range. Maybe pack something punchier than a 9mm para pistol.

For humans though, 9mm is kinda actually overpowered and underoptimized compared to what we probably should be using. Mostly because ammunition technology has moved on since the round was designed a century plus ago

I'm not sure if any of those "earschplittenloudenboomer" pistols has a practical use. Even the smallest would be hard to conceal.

I just saw a video yesterday on Fox news. It was about new rifles the military is developing. They all have a larger, more powerful cartridge designed to defeat improved body armor they keep coming up with. Now I'm wondering if they will go with a heavier handgun also.

If you ever go hunt deer in a brushy area, a high powered revolver is a great way to do it. It gives you both hands free to split the brush and you carry it openly on your hip read to use.

I expect a .357 would be ok for deer. They're not much bigger than a human.

ONE of the most famous, powerful and deadly weapons of all time:

The block of wood, carved to resemble a 1911 Colt, then covered with black shoe-polish, that John Dillenger used to break out of the lake county jail.

It's the possessor, not the weapon, that is dangerous.

"Literally everything is a weapon." -Ron Swanson.
