I think practicing a fast reload is just as important.

If I had to face down grizzles with a 10mm I would be planning on dumping both magazines. Would probably have the second magazine in my left hand unless I had to draw and fire.

With a cougar I figure most of the time you would either scare it off with a single bullet or it is on your neck.

I saw one at NWTrek jump about 12 or 15 ft straight up into a tree. I honestly wish I didn't see that.

I really tried to pick apart that video, fully expected it to pitch spray as the "be all end all" and I'm very pleasantly suprised!

Even the FWP officer was very level headed and real, and he knew his stuff for sure.

The firearms expert was also good, the class was extremely basic, but I couldn't fault it for what it was.


He had his pack on and shot "woods ready", he was glacially and agonizingly slow on the draw and fire,  but he's not an expert by any means.... but not a total novice either, he's probably a pretty good example of joe six pack hunter.

He had no muscle memory built up and that was the foundation the firearms expert was trying to build upon.

As for carrying both, I would really only do that if hunting or fishing with partners.

Had that wind not stopped....
