    Big revolver recommendations

    Got an wilderness elk hunt coming up and Im trying to decide on which revolver will keep the bears from coming in the tent. I am planning on packing around in a holster.

    Which caliber and size?

    I'd also take a .44 magnum over anything else.

    If the bear gets in the tent, you're ****ed. Best to keep anything the bear may want very far from the tent in a bear bag. Aside from that, a .44 mag wouldn't be the worst choice you could keep with you. Personally, I'd prefer something like a AR-10 with a 30 rd mag, and all of my buddies having the same thing, but that's just me.

    The 44 magnum revolver is a great gun. If you want something in a semi-auto check out the 460 Rowland, also a great gun. If you want something even bigger check out a 454 Casull. The 460 Rowland will be the lightest of the 3 and on a 1911 frame there are many different holsters available to suit your preference. Good luck hunting.

    I'm partial to guns in caliber .45 and would likely choose a Ruger Alaskan in .454 Casull.

    If weight is a concern, a light weight .44 mag would be a good choice. S&W would be the one to get.

    My #1 right now would be a 460 s&w because of the versatility. Being able to shoot 45LC, 454, & 460 is pretty cool. Only problem is I handled one with an 8* barrel and it was HEAVY. Would going to a shorter barrel to reduce weight and easier drawing make the recoil too great to easily handle?

    Depends on the bear. If you're hunting from NW Wy through western MT and might encounter Griz, I'd use the S&W 629 4" or 5". If elsewhere in the US, you're in black bear range and the 629 is good, or the S&W 686 w/ 4" or 5" bbl is adequate, lighter and more versatile with the .38spl option.
