Hunting with a Handgun

  1. In your experience what is the minimum for use on deer sized critters at realistic ranges.....say max 50 yards!
     
  2. For a traditional revolver I would not go any smaller than a 44mag for shots out to 50yds. I used a Ruger SuperBlackHawk 44 for quite a few years hunting in Alabama in the thick stuff. Get something with a 8 plus" barrel.
    I'd look at the TC's also and maybe chamber in a rifle caliber. More options with a TC, but 1 shot. Of course who need more than 1 anyways ;)
