    My woods gun is a 2-1/2" Python. I carry it concealed when working in the woods. It is not a legal hunting length - if you want one to hunt with a handgun here it has to be 4" or longer. I really like the .357 caliber. You can get some really impressive loads for it. Buffalo Bore has a 180 grain load that shoots at 1302 fps from a 3" barrel. I don't know of any .45 load that even comes close in terms of energy - the hot .357 loads have about 50% more energy than the hot .45+P loads. Product Line Listing

    Having said all that, my regular CCW guns are autos - in .45 and .380. Much easier to conceal.

    If I were going out into the woods and didn't have to conceal I would take my 6" Colt Trooper over my .45 acp. More powerful and much more versatile.
