Hello All, My name is John Harris and I am one of the lurkers you all know are out here observing and not contributing. This is my first post so Be Gentle! Ha!
I just recently started getting an Outdoor Cable Channel that is totally Muzzle Loader, Bow or Rifle hunting. These Shows are all terrific and I watch them way too much and still can't get enough. My reason for this post is to ask: Are there any programs dedicated to Handgun Hunting out there? I know NRA shows and Shooting USA do stories or features about Iconic Handguns and such but I am talking about shows that Only show Stalking and shooting game with handguns of all makes and models. If any exist please inform me. No, I do not consider Youtube a channel. Watched them all. There is not that many anyway. It would be Wonderful to see a show featuring JD Jones in Australia knocking over wild camels and other critters. Or WVHitman popping Groundhogs at long range with a 309 JDJ. I know I watch too much TV, but in SC in July its called self preservation. This is my favorite Site. What do You think?

Look what Deer Meat For Dinner has done on You Tube

If you go that route there is no need to deal with the big networks.

I watch DMFD, Brooke Christ and Jetti Rocks weekly.

Lots of folks just stream these days I watch network TV for the news and live sports.

I am a old fart too!

First, welcome! Glad you made the jump from lurker to poster.

I doubt there are any shows dedicated solely to handgun hunting, but there are certainly a few that incorporate it occasionally. Americana Outdoors is one for sure. Larry Weishuhn's Trailing the Hunters Moon is another.

We handgun hunters are the Rodney Dangerfield of the hunting world. "Don't get no respect". Interest in our adventures and hunting style is low on the totem pole of TV shows (which leave a lot to be desired) and manufactures. How many new "practical" handguns have you seen? The Nosler handgun is about it. The revived Rem. handgun is a joke. It's now the world of semiautos and CC revolvers.
When was the last decent handgun scope introduced? The Burris BPlex has been out a good while. I've hounded the major scope makers to introduce a LER "dial" scope. Same answer from all - no market for it.
So, John, seeing anything from or in the media about about our passion will be slim to none in the next few centuries.
Oh, and I could never get anyone to go with me to film the 318 groundhogs I've taken with my .309 JDJ out to 350 yds.

THERE ARE MANY REASONS HANDGUN HUNTING LAGS BEHIND OTHER TYPES OF TAKE, SOME ARE: 1) DIFFICULTY; 2)PRACTICE REQUIRED; 3) LACK OF SPECIAL HANDGUN ONLY SEASONS; AND 4) TOO MANY PLACES WHERE HANDGUNS ARE NOT ALLOWED AND/OR HANDGUN HUNTING IS NOT ALLOWED. THE NRA, TV HUNTING SHOWS AND THE SLICKS TURNED THE AR INTO A "SPORTING/HUNTING" RIFLE BUT WE GET LITTLE HANDGUN HUNTING HELP FROM ANY OF THEM. FRANKLY, I REALLY DON'T CARE ANY MORE, ITS NOT SO BAD BEING A MEMBER OF A SMALL, ELITIST, PASSIONATE AND DEDICATED GROUP OF HANDGUN HUNTERS.

Actually one company has steadily invested in handgun hunting and the is Magnum Research. They have consistently made improvements to their revolvers and they offer the largest variety of calibers of any revolver manufacturer, squarely aimed (no pun intended) at handgun hunters. As far as a handgun hunting show is concerned, I?m working on a remedy for the lack of a handgun hunting only show..,

I agree. The big outdoor networks are going the way of the Dodo. They are losing viewership at a rapid pace and most younger folks would rather stream.

A trip to the LGS resulted in a request for some ammo for hunting. The answer I was given was that first off, I was the only person in 3 months to ask any such thing. Second was Oh we will special order something for you if we can get it or if we do not have to order a whole case.
Point being we are in a very small minority. Very few people even believe that hunting, can even be done with a handgun.

Not sure who all had something to do with the Newer handgun from Nosler, but that was one nice offering. Good point Doc..

Thank You Max, Yes M.R. has been listening and improving and yes, designing new guns for hunting. Look forward to seeing a brand new item in the not too distant future.
The TV shows want to show something that is believable for most of John Q Public. Getting Sponsors may be a problem?

Thanks for the replies everyone. More responses than I expected for my first post. All are very valid and I appreciate them. I just need to get off the TV and get some quality Range time/therapy. Thanks again and Semper Fi!
