Regardless of caliber used, if you're not willing to invest in the training and practice needed, Then what ever happens in the field is your own damn fault. Pure and simple.

Cost of Ammo is not an option, if you can't afford to train then you can't afford to go on the trip.

The following lady (hope she wasn't in favor of gun control being from New York!) could have saved her life if she had at least some kind of handgun on her (above a .380 and even a .380 would have been better than nothing!)!:

"He dragged her in the water": 911 call gives insight into deadly alligator attack:

I would take factory fresh for defense. I trust my loading, but for defense I buy top notch social ammo. Kodiac and grizzly really don't bother me though. I went to the YMCA and passed my grizzly wrestling class. My fear is a ranger asking me if it was really necessary to whoop that grizzly's *ss that bad.

I bought 500 rounds of Xtreme penetrator. Figure with the same lot of ammo I can go burn up enough to know the lot is good and have enough left for the rest of my life.

I would shoot 100 to verify reliability.
