As for brown bears, what is the minimum for self defense?

I have a job where you get summers off (teaching). A family member has invited me to spend time in rural Alaska. I'm a little not very strong man. I can handle a 12 gauge shotgun pump action. Something like that. More or less. Is it loaded with slugs, enough? A bullet is regular enough, or you need a drink magnum inches, or a fantasy Brenneke Slug? My cousin carries a 338 Winchester Magnum. That will not happen for me. I'm not going to buy a .338 Winchester for a summer, and I can not shoot anyway. I normally hunt deer with a 243. A 30-06 270 or kicks my ass. I have a Winchester 1300 pump action long gun for hunting birds and rabbits, and a bullet slug barrel for deer hunting. Does pump action 12 gauge is appropriate, normal with 2 and 3 4 / inch slugs breeding? When I mentioned a shotgun, my cousin made a bitter grimace. I do not know if it's because they not believe that a shotgun will do the trick, or know how desperate I am with something larger than .22 caliber.

If you think a 30-06 kick it to her in 12GA slug, I'm one of Alaska and we do like the magazine 338 for the bears. If you can not handle a 30-06 with 338 12GA mag slugs or you need to stay away from the bears! O I know people rely on bear spray and even take it but do not depend on it. I have seen bears ignore it completely. People have sprayed the ground with spray bear and the bear rolled in it. It's best to learn the rules of bear territory. http://www.wildlife.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=hunting.bearsafety http://usparks.about.com/cs/natlparkbasics/a/beartips.htm When it comes to leads to ignorance is not bliss. Read these links and follow their advice. Doing so can reduce a meeting are wrong by 90%. I fish with brown bears in yards from me every year. And if you're too close and I have a fish, I cut the line and foot. A 7.5 lbs 12GA shotgun shooting a bullet can produce 49 pounds foot setback, a 30-06 with a 180gr bullet produces about 20 foot pounds of recoil. See what I mean? Oops I forgot, the minimum is 30-06 with a bullet of 220gr or 180 gr or 12 caliber bullet with 1 ounce. And forget a gun and shot him unless his expert least a 44 magnum with a 320gr bullet. I would suggest the 45-70 rifle with a heavy bullet at 44 mag any day!
