All of them,then some more.File that front sight off so it don't hurt when the bear puts the gun where sun don't shine.

Only 1 if you shoot well. Lots if you shoot poorly.

Only one round is needed to stop one.
Put one in your own head that way he can stop having fun with you and just have lunch.
If all you have is a 1911 and are expecting to meat Grizzers, meat is the right spelling.
This is silly.
It was a sad day when I discovered my universal remote control did not in fact control the universe.

Did you hear about the latest study.....5 out of 6 liberals say that Russian Roulette is safe.

If you can manage to live long enough to put a round in his eye from point blank range one might do it. There's been reports of Grizzly's killed that had .357 and .44 mag bullets lodged in their skulls and bodies that had been healed over for years.

That's a question I hope to never have to find out the answer to. For that matter, how many .22 long rifles does it take? .25 acp? .380? 9mm? .38 specials? It's a question with no real answer. One lucky shot could. Twenty poor shots might not.

Ask the grizzly bear. When you get an answer, let us know if you haven't been eaten. Until then, closed as unanswerable and silly.
