I live in the mountains of Eastern Oregon, every summer I have a number (12 last summer) of bears here on my property, I get on well with the bears, but occasionally have problem bears that need to be dealt with. Over the years I have killed bears with .45 Colt, Ruger Blackhawk, and with the .45 Redhawk, my GP100 .357 and just a couple of days ago with my Ruger 9mm.

My first handgun bear in Alaska was with a series 70 Colt .45ACP loaded with 240 gr. SWC bullets. Almost any handgun of .35 cal or better will work, as long as you can place the shot, use FMJ or hard cast bullets and stand your ground, if you run from a bear he will catch you and it will not be pleasant.
