    Major PSH. Rather be ‘armed’ with pepper spray or a bell against Alaska bear?

    On assignment in Montana at the edge of black & grizzly country I was warned about the ineffective bell and/or spray combination. Locals said you can tell black bear scat as containing nuts & berries; grizzly scat has bells in it and smells like pepper.

    That guy shouldn’t ever be allowed back in to Alaska.

    wow. what a lot of words.

  3. Wolfwood Says:

    Well, he does have a bit of a point. I think I’d rather have a Marlin in .44Mag (or .45-70) than a Krinkov in 7.62×39 if I were worried about grizzly or polar bears.

    .” Gun ownership has been in long-term decline over the last 40 years.”
    According to who?

  5. SoupOrMan Says:

    Are they sure that guy was actually Alaskan?

  6. wizardpc Says:

    I think the last line of the story really explains it all:

    A version of this story was originally published by Media Matters for America.

    I was baffled as to why they sent this guy to the show until I got to that line.

  7. Chas Says:

    David Holthouse sounds like a man of effeminate and intolerant sensibilities. He would likely be much happier in what’s left of Britain than Alaska.

  8. Shootin' Buddy Says:

    “The self-defense applications of high-capacity handguns that fire 15, 25, 30, or 50 rounds without reloading are dubious at best.”

    Really? If cops carry handguns for self-defence, then why do cops carry high-capacity magazines in their handguns?

  9. Sebastian Says:

    The guy pretty clearly knows nothing about guns. I’d rather shoot a charging bear with a 7.62×39 Krink than a 44 magnum. In what world is 7.62×39 going to piss a bear off while 44 magnum is acceptable for bear?

    Short of it is, this guns scares me, so I will mock it in order to come to terms with my fears.

    If ignorance is bliss, this guy must be tripping on daisies.

  11. Sean D Sorrentino Says:

    Want to know why he sees murder when he sees a gun? Here’s a story by him.

    “This time last year I was plotting to kill a man. I was going to walk up to him, reintroduce myself and then blow his balls off. I was going to watch him writhe like a poisoned cockroach for a few seconds, then kick him onto his stomach and put three bullets in the back of his head. This time last year I had a gun, and a silencer, and a plan. ”

  12. Heather Says:

    For perspective, I’m pretty sure that’s our local liberal rag that they give away for free downtown because no one will buy it.

  13. Exodus Says:

    Loaded with PSH and herpderp.

    However, I note that the PSH was of the time tested type. The Brady Bunch are running out of ideas, and that’s good.

  14. Crotalus Says:

    Good grief! Did he miss ANY pejoratives, or did he use them all?

  15. Rev. Paul Says:

    Heather’s right: the Anchorage Press is a free rag that almost no one reads, available in those little sidewalk racks. Given Holthouse’s obvious fear of guns, I doubt he’s ever actually BEEN in bear country … unless he strolled through one of our city parks during salmon season.

    What a wuss & sorry excuse for a writer. A lot of words, indeed.

  16. F-Zero Says:

    They say Anchorage is the closest city to Alaska.

  17. Beaumont Says:

    He used the term “banana clip”, so, clearly, he’s a Freudian. Probably suffers from banana envy.

  18. Chris from AK Says:

    Sorry about that — you have to realize that the Anchorage Press is our local leftist paper. They literally give it away for free downtown as they apparently have no subscribers.

  19. Chas Says:

    “embed in the bear’s fat”?

    Youtube test of 7.62×39 penetration in ballistic gel w/ 16″ barrel. Penetration: “close to three feet”

    If it “embeds in the bear’s fat”, it’s likely to be the fat on the far side of the bear, with a lot of damage in between, since the AK bullet tends to tumble as it travels through flesh, just as it did in the ballistic gel test.
    I’ll take an AK pistol slung over my shoulder with a little 20-round mag in it over a 6-shot .44. With a bear after me, I’d want to be heading towards a guy with a semiauto AK rather a guy with a .44 revolver.
    .44’s can easily glance off a grizzly’s skull, but the faster, pointed 7.62 is more likely to penetrate.
    I’d rather have a semiauto than a single-action, which is what a DA .44 mag really is without finger groove grips, since the web of my hand will be wedged under the hammer after 2-3 shots with my trigger finger going up and down on the face of the trigger, in my experience. Even with neoprene finger groove grips, the gun still recoils and twists in the grips excessively. Early S&W’s (my 629-1) .44 mag cylinders can unlatch and rotate backwards when firing DA resulting in an unexpected click instead of a bang.
    The more I think about it, the more an AK pistol makes sense for bears.

    David Holthouse, admitted libeler on behalf of SPLC, works his fact-challenged “reportage” again.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
