    Welcome to the forum.

    Handgun hunting eh? I’ve considered that lately. Sounds like fun.

    So, what do you use for a hunting pistol, & why?
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    When I hunted in Dutchess Co it was shotgun only. Think back 20 years to the equipment that was available. A handgun was easy to carry and was more accurate than the shotgun w/slugs of the day.I have used TCs and 44 mag revolver

    Welcome Chris, I've hunted a few times with a 44 mag, never bagged anything with it though I'd love to take a whitetail with a handgun someday. Anyway welcome, not been here long myself but have found this board to be friendly and informative.

    Welcome Chris - from another Chris!

    Handgun hunting eh - my choice there is based on either BFR in 45-70 or .454 SRH - both great tools for the job.

    Reading is fine - but joining in too is well appreciated, even if it is only now and again.

    Welcome Chris

    I grew up in Lewis Co., then moved to Syracuse.

    Ive hunted with my Contender (.30-30), but never got any Whitetail or Bear with it.
