What, in your eyes, is the ultimate handgun hunt? You know, the one where you open the thread, see the picture, and then you clap your hands, stomp your foot, or say "Shut the front door!". What incredible animal, exotic location, or impossible adventure would it take?

For me, it would be one of the mountain sheep with an iron sighted revolver. To $pend the money, climb the mountains, suffer the elements, and yet cling to the limits of the revolver, would take skills, guts and resolve I don't know that I have.

I want to hear the ideas,dreams and aspirations of others

My dream hunt is a dry ground lion hunt in the desert Southwest. Horseback with a pack of hounds. I'll be toting my .44 special with Barranti holster and El Paso ssddlery belt and cartridge slide.

I have done this hunt three times already. I got a bobcat one year, but never a lion.

I'll try to add pics later

I believe that Africa is still the holy grail. Elephant is number one on my list - with a .500 of some sort, up close and personal.

At this stage of the game - a mountain nyala or markhor would be tops for me.

I assumed your place would be somewhere that was high in the hills!

There are many on my list, but I think the absolute "ultimate" handgun hunt would have to include horses & a pack string, pulling company into a remote mountain tent camp with multiple-species Bull moose, Caribou, sheep & Elk tags (all) in a guys pocket... and at that, to be there as a time unlimited, month long trial of an outing too; the way Elmer, Jack & the men of old used to do it

That be the Ultimate "style" handgun hunt for sure

Coming home at the end with 60" moose, full curl sheep, and a double bez palmated old Bou on the horses hitched in a row behind you ... well, boys .. that be heaven. THAT be the one to pop your eyes out upon opening its thread for reading, with drop your jaw photos and a story with it to last two lifetimes. Guaranteed.

That's what I'm shootin' for 😉 ... SA buckled on in good leather all the way. Nothin in the world better..
