I have seen these cats move. You will get one shot, then nothing but a blur of movement.
So choose the gun you shoot the best, because your first shot must hit a tender spot.

I chose a Sig 220 in 10mm, because I also have feral hogs and black bears.
But if you already own a 9mm, and if you shoot it extremely well, go for it.

Mountain Lions are tough but not that tough , most anything 38 or bigger will take em out cleanly with a well placed shot. JMHO and S/FI!

agreed, mountain lions are not that big, they're quick though, something that only holds 5 or 6 rounds seems completely pointless to me

I don't think I'd recommend a pistol for Mtn Lion Defense. For starters, they don't have opposable thumbs so I doubt they can even hold a pistol in their paws.
