    If I do not have my Walther CCP I then carry my Sig P320 compact. I have a carry permit and all my, and all my wife's firearms, are registered!

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    I have a CCW permit --no small feat here in NY!-- and generally carry a sub-compact 9mm (Kahr CW9). If I venture into the deep woods, I might carry a Glock 22 (.40 S&W), Taurus PT92 (9mm) or Colt Combat Elite (.45 ACP).

    Bears are near the very bottom of my list of things to worry about, although we do have them around. We have a current warning from our environmental conservation department regarding rabid animals. My county has had epidemic levels of rabies in past years and it is estimated to be very high again this year. Still, I really don't worry about wild animals. I'm 58 years old and have done a lot of hiking, bushwhacking, solo backpacking, hunting, snowshoeing, etc., and have never had any bad experiences with animals (or humans).

    I know none of the sidearms I carry are appropriate for bears but that doesn't bother me much. In the extremely unlikely possibility that one comes for me, I'll at least be able to put a round or two in the ground at its feet in an attempt to discourage it and have several more rounds that I think would be effective at CQC range...

    Good hunting,
    Bob

    Metal Detecting
    If your metal detecting with a friend all you need is a 22 or a 25 cal. 1 clean shot to the kneecap of your friend and you will be able to trot out of the woods and not worries about the bear.
