Eda Goering was born in 1938, and was seven when WW 2 ended. How old was she when Sauer gave her the gun? She was mighty young to be shooting a shotgun!

Either Jerry or maybe Alec have photos....I'm too "electronically challenged" to figure out how to make and post photos, and as simple as it sounds, I just can't remember how to do it.

In New Jersey, bear hunting is by permit only, and the permit is issued via a lottery system. Hunting bear is by bow or shotgun also. I would be a little scared to attempt a bear hunt with a bow, but would be ok with 12ga loaded with 3" slugs. I do know many people who hunt black bear effectively with a 30-30. I assume that I would be comfortable with a .308 in this situation being a 300 pond bear isn't really big.

I've heard they claim the weakest bear is 7 times stronger than the strongest man. I have no clue who came up with that estimate, but I get from that a bear is substantially stronger than a man. If I'm after bear it's a .30-06 or bigger for me. I like my 9.3x62 with bullets of at least 250 grain minimum. I've killed one animal with that rifle, a 100 pound Spike Buck White Tail. He crumpled. The exit wound was silver dollar size.

She is correct.
Like I posted on page 1, 11 out of the largest 20 black bears taken have been taken in PA and there are a lot of guys head out with 243's. The 32 Spl was designed to be a upgrade for the 30-30 as a bear cartridge. Pound for pound the avg kitten will kick Chuck Norris's butt. Doesnt mean stuff wont fall over if you put holes in the plumbing and HVAC.
