My name is Jeffrey Locke and I am neophyte handgun hunter. I love the idea of handgun hunting all game from all over the world. I will begin by hog hunting in 2019 using my 460 Smith and Wesson 5 inch X-frame or my 500 Smith and Wesson 6 1/2 inch half-lug X-frame revolvers.
I use the 460 platform to shoot 454 Casull and my 500 platform to shoot 500 JRH Smith and Wesson Short magnum.

Jeffrey Locke again. My rationale for using the X-frames as my platforms and a shorter cartridge of similar power in each is twofold. First, the idea of bullet-creep tying up and disabling the gun is mitigated by using the shorter cartridge in the longer cylinder of the X-frame. Secondly, the shorter barrels do not burn gun powder as well as longer barrels. Using a 5 inch barrel in the 460 and a 6 1/2 inch barrel in the 500 means the shorter cases of the 454 Casull and 500 JRH will burn their powder more effectively than the 460 Smith and Wesson Magnum and 500 Smith and Wesson Magnum.

My name is Anthony, and I live in Indiana. I mainly hunt Whitetail deer on private and public land near my home and want to get more serious with handgun silhouette shooting.

Hello my name is Brandon, I am from South Louisiana. I hunt in Alabama and Mississippi. I have been handgun hunting for quite some time. Please understand my next statement that i am going to make. I am one of the few African American handgun hunters who is trying share the experience with other Afro-American deer hunters to give it a try. I haven't had any success yet but I have some real good candidates. I think that the more we have enjoying the sport the better it is for us. I hunt with a TC 7-30 Bullberry and 358 Bellm. My overall favorite is my .357 Freedom Arms model 83. I have taken quite a few animals. Handgun hunting is very addicting!

from a number of past conversations I`ve had with Brandon I can say he is a young man that knows and enjoys hunting with a handgun... He sure can shoot his FA`s model 83 in 357....
