    what would be the best handgun to survive in alaska with.44 Mag. ,500 mag. or desert eagle.

  • #2
    I already have a .44 Mag and have been shooting that caliber for 35 years. It is not a bad choice unless you thing you are going to tangle with an Alaskan Brown bear.I don't think that I would want to trust a 3/4 oz chunk of metal moving at just over 1000 fps against a critter that can weigh upwards of half a ton. I don't have much respect for the Desert Eagle in this situation. Rather than a .500, I would choose a .460 S&W; it is the same size as the .500, has a better range and is more versatile as far as usefulness in those kinds of situations.
    But hey, that is just me.

      It all depenzs on what you can handel best.
      IMHO~~ the 460S&W is my pick in a hand gun.
