Robert Swetz moved by the story and movie - The Revenant

Well I finally had the chance to view the movie The Revenant yesterday and WOW ... what a story and great movie!

And after viewing what Hugh Glass went through, between being attacked by Indians (Native Americans) to a Grizzly attack, etc., I thought what a wonderful life I have.

And as much hiking that I have done in Alaska the last couple years, the thought of carrying a pistol has crossed my mind many times.

I have a handful of pistols locked up in a vault in Las Vegas because I didn't want to carry them into Alaska through the airlines. It's just as easy to buy more, you can never have enough guns ;o)

I have seen bears in a distance while hiking in Alaska, but I had no idea that they could run so fast!
When I viewed the Hugh Glass getting chased down by a Grizzly and being tore up like a rag doll, all I could think about was a 45 Colt Semiautomatic or a 44 magnum.
I am not about to let some Grizzly, Moose or wolf attack me while hiking the trails of Alaska.
Also if I was to get lost and or caught in bad weather for several days or weeks, I would need a gun to hunt for food, for survival.

The bears are hibernating now so it gives me plenty of time to purchase another pistol

I am not too keen on guns, but don't mind them in the movies.

Hello Lauren ... I know how you feel, but if you hiked the trails of Alaska and really knew how fast bears can run, you might just change your mind

The trailers looked very violent, but the reviews are good. Sounds like you have a personal connection to this movie.
