Rick here, been handgun hunting since early 80's. Recently retired. Own 358jdj, 257jdj, 44 mag contender, 454 Taurus, 44 mag model 29, and. a pair of 1911's and a 22 pistol. Have taken a number of whitetails with 44's, and mule deer and antelope with the 358 and 257, as well as a small pile of prairie dogs in Wyoming. Big game hunting is my passion, with bow, gun, or handgun. Have been all over the rockies from NWT to New Mexico. Love to shoot all kinds of low level competition (skeet, practical, bowling pin).
