An interesting addition to the narrative.
It is nice to see that the hunter is not being painted as a lily-livered sissy. Many previous articles on the incident portrayed the hunter as doing nothing more than throwing the pistol toward the guide and running away.

I can tell you quite plainly that I carry with a round in the chamber. If it isn't ready to go bang, there isn't much point in having it.
I believe that to be true in many potential encounters. But past experience with bears reaffirms that belief, for predators in particular.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
