The recent "bear revolvers" discussion got me to thinking... I'm moving to Co. Springs and fully intend to spend more time outdoors. Local guy here said there is a concern about mountain lions. Lions in N. America! Never had a reason to consider them so I'm wondering what caliber range would be good for a Mountain Lion. Are they as dangerous as African Lions and the largest caliber is best, or would something in the .45 ACP - .357 Mag range be sufficient for hikes? Pepper spray? Loud air horns? Lions and tigers and bears - oh my!
