Hello all.
Paul here from central Arkansas. I don't know how I just found this forum. I am a member of a few others, and in fact, I recognize a few of you from them.

I'm in the legal field. Right now I'm the trial court administrator for a circuit judge, and am a law student at night. Unfortunately that has left me little time over the past 3 years to do very much loading or shooting. I still lurk on the boards when I can and live vicariously through you all. Hopefully I'll have more free time soon and will get to go burn some powder.

I've never killed a game animal with a handgun, but that is something I hope to remedy soon.
I have a 7.5" Blackhawk in .45 Colt and a 4 5/8" Super Blackhawk in .44 mag that should be more than up for the task if I can get one within 40-50 yards.
On my short list is a revolver that I can mount an optic on to extend that range a bit.

Anyway, glad to be here.

My name is Rick, now 67, have been a past member of HHI, started hunting with handguns in early 80's, have taken a number of whitetail deer, a great mulie (#2 HHI for 1994), three pronghorn, some varmints, coyotes, etc. Love hunting/shooting/fishing, and a former trapper when I lived in Vermont. Recently retired. Two contenders, with 44, 358jdj, and 257jdj barrels. Several big bore revolvers and a couple of 1911's etc. Starting bucket list issues, and hunt a lot with the bow as well. Bucket lists includes Water buff with a big bore revolver, Asian buff with archery, and Croc with one of my contenders!!

Hi ! My name is Mike and I have been hunting with handguns for 40 plus years but almost exclusively since the early 1990's. I was fortunate to meet Doc Rogers in the mid 1990's and he has been a constant good friend and mentor in my handgun endeavors. I have Freedom Arms Revolvers , S&W's , T/C 's , but my favorites are my HS-Precision and Rem. XP-100 single shots. I enjoy collecting and shooting as much as I do hunting with the pistols above. I've been to Alaska hunting three times and enjoy deer and varmint hunting.

Paul from AK. I've been thinking my 50th birthday next year will be a good enough reason to get a 500 JRH. I started doing some research on the 500 JRH and came across this forum. I see quite a few familiar names from other forums.

I'm hoping that now that my kids are through high school I'll have some time to go hunting. They were all involved in cross country and that pretty much kept me out of hunting for 10 years.

Finally took my first moose last fall. While I had my 480 on the hunt, I ended up taking the moose with my 350 rem mag rifle.
