I only joined a few months ago and found this place to AWESOME. Great folks that are willing to share their knowledge with no pretense whatsoever. I have learned a bunch and hopefully have provided info to help others as well. You will be hard pressed in this day and age of the "social media quagmire" to find a better bunch of folks sharing and caring about what they love to do.

Just my 2 cents

Time to give this thread a bump, and come out of the shadows. I have lurked here for a couple years, and still lurked after registering a couple months ago. C'mon lurkers join me with all the rest here.

I'm a major lurker! I've probably been lurking here for about 10 years. I really enjoy reading the post and successfull hunts. I'll never be able to do some of the hunts that you all do; However, I like living vicariously through all of you. I'm a reloader, I load rifle and handgun cartridges. I've never killed an animal, other than rimfire, with factory ammo, I reload all my stuff.

I've been handgun hunting all my life, mostly small game. I was raised hunting snowshoe hares with beagles since I was 8, I'm 37 now. I do most of my hare hunting with a Ruger 22/45 and a ruger single ten. I don't take enough pictures. But here are some with my best beagle tank. These were shot with my 4 inch single ten, the one I'm pointing at was an eye shot at 30 yards.

I've also had some luck with predator hunting with a handgun.
This is a bobcat that I called and shot with my ruger 22/45 at about 15 yards in the right eye.

This next one even though it was a very sick coyote, was blind in both eyes and full of porcupine quills. This is my best bragging shot. I called it In and yes hit on first shot, i was in prone position, and coyote was shot through the shoulders at 105 yards, ranged it with finder after it was dead, with my 40 s&w 180 grain gold dots reloads,Glock 27. I was probably very lucky but I'll take it!

I've shot bigger moose with my rifle but this is my only big game kill with a handgun. A small bull but shot on last day at 12 yards with my M29-3 8 3/8" using 240 grain xtp reloads. Only weighed 700 lbs but what a rush. If I get drawn this year my next Maine moose will be with a handgun again. Hit him in the neck dropped in his tracks.

I'm still after my first Maine buck with a handgun hope it goes 200lbs be my third patch if I do.

Don't know how often I'll post but I'm always lurking. Great forum and cool group of Joe's.

I've done my share of lurking, I just recently joined the forum. I used to belong to HHI back in the 90's when I first got the handgun bug. I enjoyed reading "The Sixgunner" and now I enjoy reading everything on the forum. Most of my hunting is whitetails here in NY, and the occasional black bear. However I did make it to Alaska to hunt caribou with my FA 454, and my 305gr BRP handloads.. I began my handgun hunting with a Smith 629, 8 3/8" bbl. But that was just the beginning because pistols are like potato chips, can't have just one. After that I had John Linebaugh build a 45 with bowen rear sight and an Elmer Keith front sight with gold bars, then a FA 454 topped with a 2x Leupold, 20 years later I added a Glock 20, 10mm topped with an RMR. Now I got bit again and I found out that MR's BFR are now being made in 500 Linebaugh, always wanted one of those, but they were a little steep for me going the custom route. So, I now have one on order so hopefully in 2-3 months that should be coming in. That will be topped with an Ultra dot Matchdot II.
