Heh, not much out here that requires that kind of stopping power unless you get sideways with a moose or (somehow) an elk. Then you'd have some explaining to do to Ranger Rick. I guess if you managed to piss off a black bear it would be a good caliber, but that's hard to do in my experience.

If we had brown bears, I'd probably want still more stopping power. I recall having read a story about a grizzly charging a man and being taken down by one of those snubnose S&W .500 revolvers actually marketed for that purpose (maybe in one shot?). I'd hate to try that with anything less than a .44 mag.

The odds of encountering a person meaning to do you harm in the CO wilderness are long, but if you did run into someone like that, chances are they are completely nuts and you might want to get the drop on him (hence discretion).
Think it, be it.
