Hello all, name is Garrett. I'm an avid lifelong archer/firearm hunter. Grew up in Wisconsin and after college moved to Arizona some 20 plus years ago. I was taught hunting/shooting by the best... my dad. And now I'm passing it along to my 4 young kids.

Love my 44's but when the SBH 454 came out I jumped on it and haven't looked back! Slowly customizing it to fit my needs/wants. Thought it would satisfy my Big Bore curiosity... boy was I wrong! Need to add a 50 caliber someday.

This is my first time posting on any site. Chose here because this site is so educational, entertaining and friendly. I've learned a lot and continue to hone my skills by reading from the many contributors. You've also cost me a bunch of money... a lot of great handguns out there I didn't realize I "needed" to buy! Figured it was just time to say hello and appreciate this forum for doing so.

Thanks! I hate to place too much blame at one mans doorstep, but after reading Big-Bore Revolvers, I knew I had to step my game up from my 44's. Then Ruger made it affordable for me with their 5 shot 454 SBH. I thought that would be enough to satisfy my curiosity but boy was I wrong! And this site and all of it's wonderful enablers are gonna make it tough I can see!

Hello. My name is Jason. I go by Wojo and I am new to the handgun hunting world. I am a traditional bowhunter and I was looking to extend my possibilities for meat. I have nothing against rifle, I just like challenges and always liked revolvers. I am going to give handgun hunting a try this gun season here in PA. I am taking my Dan Wesson 15-2 8? barreled 357 out. I keep reading and some people are not a fan of 357 for Whitetail, but its what I have and am a decent shout out to 45 yards. Considering I am a trad bow guy, 45 is far! I have never killed an animal past 15yards and never with a firearm. So, I will see how I do!
I have been practicing and at 45 yards, I can keep my group to 5? with open sites. Any thoughts? I was hoping to get a scope put on it, but opening day is monday and I ran out of time!
Anyway, Any advise you can give a newbie would be greatly appritated! I have been reading the forums for a few days now and just registered!

If you keep your shots within your comfort level and only take shots with the angle you would take with your bow you will do wel.
