    10mm for grizzly bear defense

    I worked as a bush pilot all over the state of Alaska and me and most of my friends carried Glock 20s in a chest rig. I’d also keep a short barreled Marlin 45-70 in the back of the airplane for around camp or doing bear watch. I’ve had two buddies kill charging brown bears with the 10mm and had positive results. It isn’t as much power as a 44 but you have twice the ammunition, accuracy, and half the weight which makes it worth it to me. Many make a mistake of rolling up with a 2in barrel cannon that kicks so dang bad you might get luck with hitting a bear. Reality is you’ve got a slim chance with ANY handgun because a 30-30 out of a lever rifle with standard loads has more energy than the hottest 44 mag round in a 4 or 6 inch barrel revolver.

    WTB Heated socks

    id be freaked out about a thermal runaway with them strapped to my feet. we all wore bunny boots in AK. nothing beats them but your feet are going to be hot and not really adequate for mobility.

    Swarovski 10x42 question + vortex 15x50

    I went with the 12's because I was tired of carrying two sets of binos around. No regrets so far.

    Quiet Handgun

    10MM isnt too bad. in My opinion much easier on the ears than a 44 mag.

    You're paying for the ability to see more wildlife and hunt harder. Theres a lot less time wasted on trying to figure out whether that rock is a deer or having to stop and rest your eyes. The quality of the glass allows for a lot less eye fatigue and more time spent in the glass. Also With better clarity i found it easier to catch movements.

    No offense but you're totally going to regret selling this dude. Especially being in 10mm.

    Plan on High altitude mountain hunting, I was up there last week hunting mule deer and was seeing elk in the 8-10K feet range... Id highly recommend good boots and trekking poles.
