While that might help if a cat faces you down, most likely if it wants to mess with you it's gonna stalk you, climb a tree, pounce on your back and bite your neck. Your chances of shooting it are gonna be pretty slim.

If you actually face one down, I doubt it would do anything but run.

From what I can surmise from areas out west where there are still lots of lions, this would be exceedingly rare. Carrying a gun to protect against something like that here would be like carrying a lightning rod to protect from getting struck by lightning.
