ACE has links and the latest on the 6.8mm Remington SPC ammunition, mentioned here. I’ve received a lot of search engine hits looking for this, so head on over and check it out.
ACE also notes the mountain lion attack in California. Again, the post is link-rich and observes California’s suggestions to deal with a mountain lion attack, including “Do not approach a lion,” “Do not run from a lion,” and “Do all you can to appear larger.” Who the hell came up with these suggestions? PETA?
To their credit, they also suggest fighting back if attacked.
A hiker in Southern California used a rock to fend off a mountain lion that was attacking his son. Others have fought back successfully with sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools and their bare hands.
That’s not fighting back, that’s a desperate last-ditch attempt to continue living.
Pulling a gun and blowing the damn thing away is fighting back.
