Understood, the stockless shotgun is one of the few places I've seen the utility of a laser.

There are plenty of handguns out there, from standard defensive pieces to the ".500 Magnum super short snubby" variety which are marketed for this stuff. I would prefer a lever action heavy caliber carbine to them. I would also personally prefer a firearm I had more experience with if my life depended on it.

Knowing my speed with a bolt action rifle, which you postulate has failed, a second shot from a ready lever rifle would be desirable, and I can work a lever action faster than a bolt. The Marlin "guide guns" fit that bill.

That said, a .38 Super with solid slugs from Cor Bon or Buffalo Bore would be nothing to sneeze at, as handguns go. You'd also have more rounds than a revolver and the possibility of more controllability in rapid fire than a heavy revolver would offer. Not everything is foot pounds to target, you have to hit it first. As the fellow were are discussing already knows his .38 Super, that would be to his favor in that area.
Well, a secondary shotgun is preferable to any handgun as long as you need not carry or unsling it. But capacity isn't really a concern when time/distance has already escaped from a primary firearm failure......
Just imagine how close the distance shall be, and how much time shall have elapsed should you have a secondary firearm failure and reach for your tertiary weapon? (perhaps a blade)

Here's a story of a man using a personal weapon to kill a bear and save his own life:

I found this looki9ng at the many stories where a knife was the saving weapon.

Got to admit that at my age there are body parts other than my arm that I'd sacrifice shoving down a Bruins throat to make it gag. (perhaps even a Filipina Bar Girl) LOL. But it's got to be longer than a K-Bar to choke out a Polar Bear. JMHO. Yet, Polar Bruins have been on the Menu since the "Stone Age". While an atlatl is a projectile weapon, I highly doubt it makes Doughboy's minimum spec list. Yet it has proven to be more than effective in days gone bye,

M118LR,

Fwiw, there is a documented 1st hand account from the early 19th century of a NA hunter throwing a light javelin (using an atlatl) in one side of a bison & out the other side. = One bison GYD.

Obviously the NA knew quite a lot about killing big game with their "primitive Stone age weapons".

yours, sw
