Here Are Some Of The Best Firearms On The Market For Defense Against Bears

The one thing you need when you’re out in the wilderness is a good firearm. North America has it’s share of predators that roam our forests, bears, mountain lions and wolves.

While your chances of running into one of these predators is slim, it’s best to not take any chances and be prepared with a good firearm incase you do have a face to face confrontation.

For anyone who is planning a trip out into the bear country, a good bear defense gun will not only give you peace of mind, but also your friends and your family. Luckily, most bears usually do not want any trouble and will leave the area as soon as they detect you.

However, this is not always the case and you should be prepared to defend yourself if you get in a tight situation. A good bear gun should be a part of your defense plan whenever you are out in the woods.

Choosing a firearm that has enough power to stop a bear in its tracks is a wise decision. In the video below, they’re going to go over a number of shotguns and pistols, for protecting yourself and your loved ones from bears, whether you’re out hunting, or just happen to live in a place where you’re likely to run across a bad tempered Grizzly.

So, let’s take a look at the best bear/predator defense guns currently available and find the perfect one for you. Remember, even the biggest and most powerful bear-defense guns aren’t guaranteed to stop a charging bear if you don’t make a good shot.

By the same token, even a smaller handgun will get the job done with good shot placements, good bullets, and a little luck, but why take chances?
