I get what you are saying about mountain lions. I don't know too many people that have run ins with them, but they are fairly common around here. I figure something is better than nothing.

So if a .45 will just piss a bear off, what do you recommend?
Bear spray is absolutely your best bet. It will work on a big cat too if you have time to use it.
