Well I have been wanting one for a long time as a dedicated hunting handgun and I got it today! Stainless Super 14 in 44 mag. Price was right on it, just couldn't help it lol.
Anyway I'm looking for opinions on how to set it up for hunting. I do have the sling kit in a box down stairs some where and I'd like to keep it as light and simple as possible. The Factory sights aren't all that good. I was thinking about a peep sight if it is applicable here?
Also any good load recommendations as well.
Been a while since I had a 44 mag around and I wasn't happy with my SBH. I m hoping this one will work out better for me.

Meat Hunters Do It For Dinner
What kind of hunting do you do? heavy cover or open fields? deer? A few more details will help with recommendations.
A 44 in a 14" tube will reach a good bit farther (100+yards) then most people will consider shooting open sights. They often get scoped with a fixed low (2-4) power scope. A red-dot sight is a nice upgrade from iron sights and can be smaller then a scope. A peep sight would work, but I think you would be missing out on a fair amount of the performance in the platform.
If you like scopes a nice 4x Weaver, Burris , etc.,etc . I have never wanted less than 4x but have often wanted more. You may also like one of the Ultra dot sights. I would prefer the 2 min. dot myself.
