Would you feel safe using a 45 ACP for protection against a Bear if you were fishing up North where the Bears are big?

here is a good article to read about your best defense against bears.

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.
lightweight, cheap, strong... pick 2
