Oh I had to kinda walk the bullet up to the dog. It was not my intention to imply any great prowess. But, I'm getting better.

Practice makes perfect. Dogging is a great way to practice with reactive targets. Take your 44 dogging too! When you connect it tends to be spectacular. Post some pics!

Good to hear you're back at it. It can definitely take a while to build enough confidence to take a big game animal with it. Heck, it took me years to finally connect on anything other than a paper target with a pistol.

I'm nit really a lurked since I posted s bunch when I first got into handgun hunting, but have been pretty quiet since then - just reading and learning. Cant wait for hunting season to start- going to try and get an iron sight deer with my EAA 10mm.

Besides the 10, I have a CVA .243 pistol and a Ruger SRH 454.

Ha, I've been the lone handguner in our deer camp 100% for more than 2 decades and they still think I'm crazy.....

I've never gotten to take anything big with a handgun, just smaller stuff that would maybe be considered pests. However I've had a love for big bore revolvers for a good number of years and I've had .41's, .44's, 45 Colts, 454's a 500 S&W once but my only big bore revolver now is one I just recently purchased, a 6" BFR .475L/480R.

I don't get to hunt much, but hopefully one day I'll be successful and get to go hunting more. I like reading on here not only to learn, but to live vicariously through you guys like in some alternate reality, I got to hunt more.

Handgun hunting is not for everyone.It takes a large amount of determination and perseverance to become proficient with a handgun.For every round my son and I, and most of the people on here fire at game several thousand practice rounds go down range.We love to shoot and do so year round to stay proficient.About all you can do is show people that you are dedicated,serious, and confidant with your choice of firearm and let the results speak for themselves.

On 2 days this week I went shooting with my SBH just fine tuning zero and checking a new load. Last week I was doing the same with my Glock 20 ... next week it's Encore's turn. A trip to the camp to shoot is an awesome day!!

I honestly believe I'm the only dedicated Handgun Hunter in this county. In fact, I've had more than one situation where I was asked point blank "are you really killing those good deer with a pistol?" A guy told my Step-Dad he'd let me shoot at him at 100 yards with just a pistol ... to which my Step-Dad responded "you really don't want to do that!" LOL
