    All good. Pistol caliber carbines only recently came back into popularity. Many people hope Ruger listens and sells a version of their new PCC rifle in 10mm. Then you would have a 10mm take down rifle you can store in a back pack that also takes Glock mags.

    Ruger seems to be better about listening to customers than pretty much any other big company out there, while Remington loses touch with what people want, ruger actually makes what people want so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 10mm carbine at some point.

    Grendel is expensive enough in the lower 48 I can’t imagine the price/bitchiness to find it’d be in Alaska.

    @bushman505 @VitorReem

    Any guys up there alternating between 12g slugs and shot for their hunting/defense needs? Or is it too heavy?

    I was wondering how the various tactical semiautomatic 12’s would fare in the wilds if they can get everything within 100yds.

    Yeah it’s pretty common and probably the best choice for bear protection. I take a shotgun when I’m out camping and fishing.

    I’ll take the SCAR17, because I consider a semi-auto in 308 to be about the minimum rifle for bear defense.

    Why not just a shotgun, and carry some birdshot, and a few slugs? Now you can kill small and big game.

    Holy fuck....

    Shooting a small moose with a 9mm, and leaving it to slowly die?

    That guy's a legit asshole.

    Should have fired the gun in the air to scare it off, or at the very fucking least put a few rounds in his skull to stop its suffering.

    Legit asshole.
