A 9mm is better than nothing but one thing to keep in mind about the particular instance you refer to the guide pretty much emptied his magazine to put that bear down.

Now, I won't dissuade from the firearm you are choosing to use but a 9mm is not the best choice in bear defense. For black bear, I would recommend .357 magnum at a minimum.
