I'm moving in the middle of next month and really wondering what kind of pistol I should get for carry while hunting and fishing. I don't know much about the area, other than, it's not my home range and having a little something for defense while hunting would be good. I'm planning on always having bear spray, but other than that, what kind of guns are good ideas? I just sold my Beretta 92fs, because out here all you ever get is angry peta activist and small black bears. I was thinking a Glock 21 SF, which is .45acp. I would think that's an effective caliber for cats, and black bear, but what about brown bear? Are there any brown bear issues in eastern and northern WA? If the bear spray fails to be effective, is the .45 just a cute noise maker for a brown? I realize that chances are slim for a bear issue, but I have had cougar problems before while fishing, and had to shoot one.
