Great gun! You are going to love it!I picked up this gem. This will be my 1st scoped handgun. 10mm with a 6.5 inch barrel. It came with 13 moon clips. Here it is with a comparison with my snub nose 357. View attachment 136677 View attachment 136678 View attachment 136679
I spent my senior year and graduated high school in Boone NC.Summers in Maine, I saw a lot of bears and moose. Not too many people die from a moose attack but they are injured all the time. It's way more common than bear attacks. No big cats in Maine or anywhere in the northeast that I am aware of.
Now that I am in north central NC, there are fewer bears than I expected. I have yet to encounter one on a trail. Lots of deer though. A good sized buck can kill you if it decides to, so I'm always ready. But the odds are staggering that it will happen. You are much more likely to be killed by a drunk deer hunter.
We shoot hogs on sight.I went hog hunting near Abilene, TX. It was a fun weekend. But not much of a challenge. Very organized. Not really hunting. I did have some fun with a AR 10 I customized just for hog hunting at night. The food was awesome. Cold beer and good booze after the hunt.
Roger that on a moose. They are big and mean as shit. When I was 13 or so I had a chance encounter with a big bull at the family cabin (cottage) near Skowhegan. Mating season, probably females around. I didnt know any better. He started making those wierd sounds like a lion's roar and snorting then charged me. I never ran so fast in my life. I ducked into a nearby groove of pine trees that were so close together I could dodge him. The chase didnt last long. He made his point and left. Scared the shit out of me.
I'm not that far from Boone. I know where it is but never been there. Hour and half drive from my shack in the sticks near Mt. Airy. I have done some hiking in the Cherokee Nat'l Park.
