    The 10MM is becoming the handgun of choice for many hunters in Wyoming. It should be carried loaded in a cross the chest holster. In most bear attacks rifles are often knocked from the victims hands. The 10MM generates over 32,000 PSI breech pressure compared to 12,000 PSI in the 45 ACP. The 10MM Semi-Autos can deliver over 2 tons of energy in seconds.

    I don't live in bear territory, but if I ever go there, I'll be very happy with my .44 Mag.
