You're on your Wing cruising the twisties and you round a curve to find a pack of wild bears standing in the road blocking your path. You come to a complete stop hoping they wander back into the woods. Instead, they charge you en masse.

What do you do?

Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

I'd throw 'em my last Klondike Bar and ...no, wait...too extreme. I'd burn a louie and beat feet back the way I came...no, wait...too chicken. I think I can juke-out the one on the right, and slide right by 'em...yeah, I'll try THAT... Can I hide in the woods?

Well now, being here in Idaho I have a different take on things. First of all, is it hunting season?

Ok say you knock them all off with you concealed 45. Where you gonna pack them on the bike? Sure would be a waste of some good furs and meat to leave tham on the side of the road.

I would first probably poop my pants. Then I would probably try to figure the fastest, easiest way to get out of there. A .45 against that many bears of that size just isn't going to do the job fast enough unless it scared them off.

That many bears..... .45 ACP better be using the +P hollow points and a steady hold.

This is more like it.

Or this..... only five rounds...4 bears...better hope the first round scares them off and not P.O. them.

If you can lay down and thoroughly soil yourself might work also
