    I live in bear country. But I do not carry a gun that will defend against bears because I believe, though I have not experienced this myself, that bear mace is far more effective then a 12 gauge. So for my bug out bag I carry Bear mace (works amazingly on people as well!), Glock 23 .40 on my right hip (for defense) and .22lr single action revolver on my left hip (used for hunting, Its better than carrying a large rifle around).
