    Great article from OL. Actually trained for worst scenario, used only ammo available; and I'll bet he had the issued plastic sights!

    Yep, the IG pic would indicate that was indeed the case.
    People that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not "victims" ... they're accomplices.

    The thing that saved him was not being on the streets.

    That's a hell of a story, as was the ice axe one.

    .375 is the school solution as a grizzly caliber, but I don't think any bolt rifle is ideal for defending against a short range charge/FUT. This story only underscores that.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    I should probably have added to my last post, that I stopped a brown bear charge on Kodiak at around 12 yards with a .375 H&H model 70 bolt, but there are better choices for defense.

    I get it for sure. My post was pure sarcasm re "enough gun" since he apparently had no interest in shooting that bear anyway.

    I always knew something was up with Yogi. He was just a little too happy.
