im preparing to do some backpacking in the red river gorge area in ky.(where i live) we have black bear in that area and i know alaska has alot of bear so i was just wanting some advice for protection. i was considering a 12 gauge with a pistol grip and the barrel shortened (to reduce weight and size) loaded with 3 in. magnum slugs, would this be adequate?
