I went backpacking in the Smokies in the spring and will likely be heading back. I was thinking about taking a handgun along. I'm assuming a revolver is the way to go. Seems like it couple handle a little dirt and keep running when an auto might stop. I've shot .357's on a number of occasions and can handle them alright. Could honestly use a little practice. Probably since I'm more used to autos.
Anyhow, what handgun might you recommend going into the woods with?
I saw a GP 100 at the local shop. Seemed like a nice revolver for a decent price.
