You dont need a .45long colt for riding! thats a-lot of punch for the trail dude, All you really need is a .380 or something small, light weight, and easy to carry. If a dog or big cat charges the noise alone should freak it out! Think of the size of a big cats (or dog) head...it's in motion, Its gunna getcha, your fumbling trieng to get your pistol out of your gay ass looking fanny pack, and boom he has the back of your neck! you cant shoot it in the head now!!!! better off packin a med size knife.
Maybe your point is that you can preemptive (sp) kill an animal, well my freind dont make the news 'cause every hippie, tree huggin liberal will be wanting your ass on a rope.
Guess my point is, your better off with an ASP extendable baton or med size knife while on the trail or in your neighborhood. The ASP is probably your best bet in the city. http://www.batondefense.com/images/Asp/asp-baton-1.jpg
and a med size knife in the country.
My buddy just got back from Iraq and said that they were standard issue on patrol.
