Lots of threads discuss caliber for Bears both black and brown. And they include recommendations for bear spray as well as revolver based medicine. In view of recent grim events, what is an effective caliber for a 7' gator? Do you have to go mag, or would a stout 44 spl. do the job? Anybody with real experience in the field? I got to thinking about this and realized that I was more likely to find myself facing a gator than a grizzly considering my likely regular destinations.
