    Actually you’re both wrong - there was a study done on pistol defense against bear attacks. Surprisingly pistols were far more effective than anyone thought. As in 90 percent. The most used was a 9mm, but even a .22 was successful. Not in killing the bear, but making it leave. Though they reported a number of kills in the study as well. I forget who did the study, but I’ll try and find it when I’m on my computer. I’m on my iPad at an undisclosed location right now. Lol.
