Backpackper Shoots, Kills Grizzly in Alaska Park

 A backpacker shot and killed a grizzly bear with his handgun…

The man fired nine rounds from his .45 caliber, semiautomatic pistol at the animal, which then stopped and walked into the brush.

They found the dead bear 100 feet away.

.45 caliber, semiautomatic pistol. Was this a typo? Did they mean .45 Colt, or was it really .45 ACP?

  1. Kevin Baker says:

    Nine rounds, it wasn’t a Colt.

  2. As long as one of those 9 shots hit something vital or caused significant blood loss, dead bear. 45 ACP may not be ideal for Griz, but it’s still a 45 ACP and I’m sure it beat the hell out of a sharp pointy stick.
