Spent the weekend with the family exploring some of the Alaska coastline... Somewhere along the way we hiked up to a glacier, I collected some glacial runofff to brew some afternoon coffee and tea on the trusty 502

Sounds like a nice time, Gerald; I like the pictures, and stopping for coffee and/or tea sounds great in such a setting.
Around here in PA, we have, well.......................

Thanks Steve, it was a good time... We had hoped to watch Beluga whales chase Salmon in the Cook inlet, no luck this time but here are a few photos Frome Beluga point, hunter-gatherers used to pursue whales from this location

Nice additional pictures, too; the second one reminds me somewhat of the views I had while I lived in Maine a few months, awhile back.

I've yet to experience Maine, or PA for that matter...Nice thing is you don't need a large caliber firearm to deal with predators there (at least, that's my understanding).

I was at a barbecue with a friend recently, and was asked what sidearm I carry was while out in the bush. Being from the lower 48 I answered that "as a sidearm, I carry a Beretta 92fs." The response was, "do you have a file at home?" Not sure where this was going I answered "of course!" My friend said that before I go out into the woods next time I should consider "filing the sights down to a nice smooth finish" a little perplexed and with eyebrows squinted I asked why? He responded, "That way, when the bear takes it from you, and rams it up your @$$, the damage won't be so devastating!" ...
They pulled a sidearm from about every belt and passed around ALOT of sidearms at that point to drive it home... 9mm doesn't cut it up here apparently, haha. So for now, its the good old Mossberg 500 with slugs chambered while I'm out, better sidearm soon enough.

Thanks for sharing, did a four night trip into the Wrangell-St Elias NP maybe 10 years ago with a few guys, flown by Bush pilot next to a glacier and spent three days hiking down to a river.

I've had friends who were fishing guides and/or worked doing fisheries for the USFS in Alaska. Their standard carry was a 12-ga pump, plug pulled for 7 rounds. The wisdom was that a shotgun was always outside your clothing in country where outer layers are frequently changed, while a pistol tended to get buried.

Standard load-out for the USFS was a cracker shell then buck, then slug, repeat buck and slug. My favorite was the USFS training test: A paper plate at 10 yds, easy enough to hit, right? But then the training officer--probably a Vietnam vet Sargent--would grab the trainee  by the shoulder, start shaking them and screaming "BEAR!" while they tried to hit the plate. Getting all seven shots off downrange was a passing grade.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Well @GeraldJP that looks really nice, and a bit greener than the Sangre de Cristos this year. It was a pretty dry spring. Thanks for posting the photos. One guy I know who frequents Alaska carries a .454 Casull.

I backpacked this last weekend and got to use a 440 with @SloMetalDoc222 vault from . Like me, people like photos so, I'll add a few of my own.
440_vault.jpg 

This area in the Sangres had a lot of blown down trees so nobody goes back in there and it was nice and quiet. Didn't see another person (other than my son) until we got back to the trailhead.

It threatened to rain but never did much. The skies cleared and it got plenty warm.

Great photos, I lived 2 hours from the Sangres for a little over two years before coming up here. Not making the time to hike them and not elk hunting are two of my regrets from my time in Colorado.

I spent a couple weeks in Juneau during a salmon run. I was stupid and in college. Hiked the rivers, caught and carried fresh salmon, caught chum salmon with our bare hands. Luckily that day there were 8 of us and not quiet so the bears left us alone. If I did it again I would have a 10mm and a 450 bushmaster or 50 Beowulf.

@GeraldJP I think he was commenting on the 222 vault that he made, and I bought from him two weeks ago. It also happens to fit on the 440 stove so I used it last weekend. Apparently, @SloMetalDoc has the same REI Titanium cookset, too. I'll need to start my own post next time so this doesn't get so confusing. Apologies . . .

Yep, I got it when I read it again and noticed the safe. Lol. Thanks though.

Is that one of his magnetic ones?
