Add a Delomre InReach to your list and stop worrying, cheap peace of mind.  But DO NOT put an unholstered handgun of anykind in your pack or pocket unless fully unloaded...  and if unloaded, what's the point of carrying it?

You must have missed something. The Sig.... I put it within a DeSantis Pocket Holster and then put that into the zippable pocket.

...I think you take more than you need ...

 I know I do! And I'm perfectly OK with that. Way I figure it, at worst it's helping my legs get even stronger for when the moment of truth comes.

In a tussle with a MtnLion... I'd say as long as he wasn't much bigger than me (215Lbs) , and as long as he hasn't yet stabbed my jugular or aorta or eyes with one of his canines. I feel pretty confident with my pain threshold and level of rage I'm always carrying surpressed just under the surface, that I can invoke when needed... I could get that mofo off me. The hard part of that is all the micro distance-management stuff you'd have to contend with while they're holding ya with their front claws... preventing those tearing kicks at ya with the back feet claws. A similar tactic that rats do.  I figure you'd have to just straight-up try to destroy his facial features, like eye-gouge, rip-off his eyelids, tear at his nostrils, or deep ear pierce in there with your thumb. Stuff to get him to break his mouth hold so you could then grab for his throat/voicebox or pierce thru the trachea.  I could see there being the need to possibly do some heel-hammers into his ribs to light him up while he's got ya in a lock to make him make mistakes and change up his positioning so you can capitalize on his re-gripping movements.
Only problem with all that is whether or not you can inflict enough pain on him quickly enough to make him reconsider the risk... and will he have already inflicted enough sharp wounds on you that your window of time is limited to A) provide emergency self-care with med supplys then B) get yourself back to vehicle.  And if the opportunity presented itself... I'd for damn sure try to execute an arm-bar and pop one of his joints in his forelegs. You figure once it goes the phsycial route you're gonna have to be all kinda aggro on the attack to make that ###### think twice whether to continue or not. Any hesitation, he'll know he's got your mentals all pinned up in fear and then he'd be relentless.

Straight up survivalist you are... you forgot that grab and twist (nutz) or the six pac strangle hold. I think Ted Nugent sings about this technique in one of his rap songs.... Ed F

So after you kill the kittie cat with you bare paws, you can make a  holster for your pistol out of the hide? 

 

Is that what this thread is about?

Great plan GDog, except this is how a mountain lion attack goes down:

 

 

Ambush hunters. They attack from behind. Most victims never saw it coming.

 

Maybe wear a spike collar? Oh, and don't forget your big game hunting helmet. Safety first!


"One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards."

Yeah... I know... that's the part that scares me about them. They are very likely to get a fast-bleeding wound on ya before you have a chance to defend. So even if you do manage to make him decide to quit... you  might already be EFF'd anyway.  Unless you can keep presence of mind to provide yourself enough immediate field wound care afterward to buy you some time to GTFO.  It's a crap-shoot at best.  But beats the alternative, no?

PS... I know that's how they attack that's why I like the idea of a compact pistol.  

I figure my right ear's hearing is compromised anyway... if one clamps down on neck from behind.... if I can manage to draw the pistol... I can just put it sideways against my face, slide it along the contour of my head until the barrel butts up against some part of his face, then fire. It'd be painfully loud, and you'd get some burnt skin I'd have to imagine. But at least I'd still be on this side of the grass.

Hrmm.... you know... you got me thinking. I'd bet with enough R&D you could maybe make a some kinda cap where it has those flaps for the shading the neck like those desert legionairre hats... but maybe integrate into the flaps rows of Carbon Fiber rectangles... to allow the flaps some bendability... but still provide puncture resistance. And the Carbon Fiber panels wouldn't have to be very thick at all for that level of p.s.i.

Maybe have a loose retention strap at bottom of flaps that goes around neck so the flaps can't venture too far away from covering their area.

I actually did a lot of thinking on this sort of topic already, conceptualizing a little lightweight breathable armor-suit I could make for our tiny little Chihuahua. The idea struck me one day because at our local Dog Park it is often frequented in the adjacent Naval Golf Gourse by Big ol' honkin' Red-Tailed Hawks.  So one day I got to thinking about how you might be able to engineer a lil suit to prevent their Talons from being able to puncture if they became grasped by a Hawk's Talons or a Coyotes Teeth.  In the research I did on it.... apparently average human male has a grip strength of about 20 psi, whereas an Eagle produces about 400 psi.. and that's distributed over very narrow surface area of their Talons edge.  Also... many Raptors have an evolutionary adaptation to the tendons for their feet.... it has a racheting mechanism.... so they can't let go... unless they relax. I'm sure that developed over time from snatching all those fish off the surface of the water. I'd imagine those fish thrashed about quite wildly so having such an advantage would quickly prove helpful for their survival.

Now all we need is that feller that relieved his cat to teach the proper technique and those big kitty's will come a chuggin for a tuggin...  


Give me a bow, a topo and two weeks and I guarantee I kill two weeks!

I do! I heard he ripped off the cats eye lids and punched it in the nose twisted the cats wrists....really gave it an ol fashion beat down before pulling out his Sig P238 that he had holstered across his chest and double tapped that ol cat! Talk about a close call!
