i know we have some brothers and sisters that hunt with their handguns, i would like to hear about it. i have shot one mule deer with my ruger p 90 .45 acp, 60 yards. a few hogs with the same pistol. i have shot a few hogs with my ruger gp-100 .357 mag and the only hangun i ever bought specifically for hunting i have never shot any hogs or deer with, my ruger super blackhawk .44 mag. it's the hunter model, satin stainless with black laminate grips and a 7 1/2" barrel. it has killed its share of jackrabbits and one coyote, maybe this year will be the year i get to break it in!
