Here's a very interesting interview with Phil Shoemaker about brown bear hunting in Alaska. Among other things, Phil describes his now-famous incident from 2016 where he killed a bear with a 9mm handgun in detail.

I lost all trust in 357sig ammo. Before I switched to a Glock 9mm, I was having numerous fail to feed issues due to poor quality in manufacturing tolerances

Good guest but I had to turn it off.

The 5th time he said “fair enough” when it wasn’t warranted, I couldn’t take it anymore
