Would you feel safe using a 45 ACP for protection against a Bear if you were fishing up North where the Bears are big?
no.

here is a good article to read about your best defense against bears. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/42173184/Survival%20Spray.pdf

in short: basically bear spray was 90% effective, handguns 84%, long guns 76% (interesting), but 56% of firearm users were still injured or killed by the bear.
