Or a large bear for that matter.jdw wrote: ↑Thu Oct 03, 2019 9:29 amNot a jab but if you can bring down a boar with a 10mm handgun then you are one heck of a shot.

However, this thread Isn’t about if I should take a folder instead of a fixed blade.
As previously stated... I’ve been here before and I will have a fixed blade in my bag, should it be necessary.
Wild animals such as boars and big cats are ever present there, so I’m not just walking out there unprepared either. The trusty 10mm with proper ammo will be on my side.
I was thinking the same thing, boars are very hard to bring down, they don't stop if they are charging you. They will attack people more so than other animals... I would want something more than a 10mm handgun, a big bore rifle ideally and a repeater like a lever action or pump. A .444 Marlin or .45-70 GOV.
Bears are smarter as they don't normally bother people, they stay clear unless they have cubs normally.
Same with Mountain Lions, unless you are close to their den, cubs or a fresh kill.
