I would have to go with the Defender if it were me. The ability to carry an assortment of rounds gives you alot of options. You can put one type of shell in the magazine and another kind on a side saddle. You can even use it as a flare gun if the need is there. Not to mention the ablility to shoot birds for food. Just my 2 cents.
If guns cause crime, matches cause arson.
SloShooter, I thought it was Chocolate Bars and Nylon Stockings?

I suppose that depends what you're tryng to catch, BigHop.
PPC, Silhouette, 45s, 380s, and now a P-3AT for CC

Winchester Defender with Brenneke slugs & probably #6 / 1 1/4 oz. loads.
Assuming you need to feed yourself, the #6 shot-shells will do nicely on just about any small game or waterfowl.
In case you need to defend yourself against one of the large bears, the Brenneke 12 ga. slugs are as good as anything made.
On the otherhand, I would prefer a 45-70 Marlin Guide-Gun for bear protection, and a Remington 870 for the shotgun.
The woods are lovely, dark and thick, but I have many butts to kick, and some to poke, and just one stick.
fly, do you need a caddie? i'm available on short notice. we could stick anything in the bag.

given that the overwhelming majority is recommending the Defender, I'd have to agree with them. Only thing I'd add is a folding stock, which would make the package that much more compact.
Not sure of the legality of that in Canada.
After talking with a few pilots this week while down here at Sun-n-Fun, I'm leaning towards the Rossi Matched Combo. I know, it is a single shot long gun -- but it sounds like it will be the least socially/politically suspect when flying into our neighbor's territory to the north. It also breaks down into a light and easily packed zipper case that will fit nicely under the rear seat.
I'll put a stock mounted ammo carrier on and practice firing and reloading quickly -- in the event I need to release more than one slug in the direction of an aggressor with fur...
You know, they ought to let you carry any damn thing you want thru there on your way to Alaska. They sure benefited from NAFTA and they shouldn't fuss over a handgun, that's ridiculous!
The next gun is NEVER the last one!
Whaddaya mean it's not IN stock.......oh brother!
Carry or be carried by 6.......
