safety first! you dont want unnecessary, excessive use of the trigger finger or racking the slide when you are required to exterminate vermin. no sense in putting an even bigger burden upon the health care system.

just think of all the innovative safety measures that have been researched and developed in california.

oddly, its the opposite.... the loaded chamber indicator is NOT approved. Springfield said it wasn't even going to submit the M for approval

You bring up a good point. I was almost settled on 9mm because of accuracy, inexpensive rounds and availability... however if I ever did need some stopping power, being in CA I only have 10+1 so maybe I need a bigger bullet

Don't know about the OP, but I ended up picking up a Ruger GP100 in a 6" barrel. I absolutely LOVE this gun. If I miss the wild creature or intruder, I know they will have some permanent hearing loss!

I did not get this as a carry, but more for a suppliment to my shotgun for home protection, carry on roadtrips and woods carry (when camping). I was more accurate with the 6" than a 4". Looks meaner, too.

I plan on an SP101 or maybe a Glock 19 for carry.

if there is any chance of bears being in the area of camping i would for sure go with the S&W Mountain Gun in the .44 MAG

with bears you dont want to just piss them off. this is the gun im planning on getting in the future.

So will you...

I have a G19 and love it. It's quite concealable and comfortable.

If you want multiple shoots in a pistol would recommend a 44mag Smith and Wesson with a 6-8 inch barrel. It is very accurate and has stopping power even out at 100 yards. It works great for 2 and 4 legged critters. Yes it only has 6 shoots, but if you have not hit it with the first 6 I doubt that another 6 will do you much good.

For backpacking you may want to look into http://www.henryrepeating.com/h002_survival.cfm
Personally I think the caliber is to small and it would take to long to put together when you really need it. However some people do like it because it is light and compact.

Here is a ballistics chart that you may find interesting http://www.sportsmansguide.com/resou...ballistics.pdf this will give you info from how fast its going to how hard it hits.

For backpacking I decided on a 6.5JDJ contender. It weighs 3.5lbs and has a 14" barrel. It is basically a rifle in a pistol package. Lots of energy and small groups at 300yards. For protection single shot is a draw back but I was looking more feeding my self if need be.

That's a pretty cool pistol. For survival-only, I'd have to say I'd probably take my Browning lever action .22LR rifle. Only because I can have a pocket full of 22 shells and be able to survive for a while. But I'd also like to pick up something like the Ruger single-six hunter for something more packable.
