Just a few points...

1. No one, including a bear, wants to get shot by a 9mm, and they're smart enough to associate muzzle blast with bullet pain.

2. I grew up with revolvers and a 357 Mag was my first "real" firearm - I am much, more accurate with my 9mm than I was with the 357 double action and can shoot many, many more shots with it, both warning shots and shots to hit.

3. If I were carrying bear protection in my hands (not slung on my shoulder), sure I'd rather have a 12 gauge, but if I can't have that I'll carry what I shoot quickest and with appropriate bullets.
