Would you keep a weapon if you lived in bear country?

I would.  I would think its the wise thing  to do.  Thoughts?

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

Probably- Now to qualify, other than taking a vacation, I can not imagine how I would end up in bear country. Living in bear country, the chances are slim to none and slim took the day off.

 Yeah, but I wouldn't rely on the weapon to keep me safe. Using common sense when in bear country will most likely prevent any form of encounter.

I would probably never live in bear country, I am more a suburb type of girl:)  I would only use it to keep me and mine safe, if ever in that situation, but people know the risk if you are going to go into their natural habitat/

Yes but it would be bear spay and not a gun. That what we have at my hubbys tattoo shop too. Its like having pepper pray but it shoots like 15 feet.

Reminds me of a Colorado Joke (where they tell you to wear a whistle to scare off bears and carry pepper spray)...

How can you tell if what you've just stepped in is bear poop? It contains whistles and smells like pepper spray!

Lol. Bear spray is way cooler than pepper spray though. Stronger and you don't have to be close to the person/bear you are spraying.

 Yes. Because I would want to protect my family. I keep a gun now, but that is because I live in thieving, methhead, asshole country.
