if you're in bear and big cat country i wouldn't carry anything less than a .44 mag. in an holster slung across my chest for quick access.
or if you're in a state that has to have a handgun concealed at all times i'de carry it with a shoulder rig under my left arm.
Clint Eastwood: "the .44 magnum. the most powerful handgun in the world. it can blow a mans head clean off. in all this excitement i can't remember if i fired 5, or if i fired 6 shots. but you got to ask yourself this one question, do you feel lucky..... punk.... well, do ya?"
