Went to Turners her in Ca. Asked the man what would be a good gun for Alaska. He showed me a Marlin 45-70 and a Benelli 12 ga. Has stock with hand grip built in. Still looking into them. Like the 45-70, but looks like the rounds cost a lot. Need to get a hold of Canada to see what they will let me take. Need it so nothing happens to me little girl when she is out in the woods. Might get bear spray too.

When I was on my first hitch and again overseas we had to familiarize our selves with the Winchester 97 shotgun and double aught buck shot the damage it would do to a 50 gal drum was awesome. and the kick was no worse then an M-1 the nice thing about them is no aiming just get it in the general direction and pull the trigger. and i guarantee you no matter how much training when you are in a must fire situation it is nothing like books or movies that is why you hear of so many police shootouts where large amounts of ammo is expended and no one is hurt.

Graciesmom, that "little dog" is probably the strongest deterrent you'll ever have. A thief or assailant can argue with, and confuse, a human, some dogs are hard to argue with! It's when they get past the dog you need your weapon.

Don't confuse military weapons training with civilian close-quarters defense. I retired from the Army, 18 years of which were infantry(6 yrs/drill sergeant). That has little similarity to civilian self-defense weapons training, as I learned rather quickly.

Try that one before you buy. It will kick like a mule. There's a nice article on it at Marlin 45-70.
