Exactly! It's normally the shooter that isn't up to the job, not the cartridge.

It wouldn't be my first choice, but I wouldn't get all worked up if I had to use it.

Handgun hunting is not easy but it is fun. You have to be quiet and still and very patient to get a shot with a handgun. Opposed to sitting in a curtained box stand where you could dance a jig if you wanted to and still get a 200 yard shot with a rifle. If you want to handgun hunt a .45acp will do the trick every time, so will a .357, .38special, heck a .22 will do it if you hit the deer right. I'm going to hunt this whole season with my .357.
If I gave a crap about what you think about my guns.....it was early this morning and I already flushed it!

Another thing I didn't see brought up is check your state's hunting regs. Most states have a minimum caliber and/or barrel length restriction on handgun hunting.
