Well, my name is Jeff, and I am the Switchman. Ive been seriously intrigued by the prospect of handgun hunting for about the last 6 years. However I have not actually been hunting yet. Particularly for financial reasons. Had a flying career bottom out on me in its early stages, and am now working overseas as Telecommunications contractor.

My main hunting priority - is Elk. Ever since I had Elk-steak & eggs for breakfast in Boise about 8 years ago. Since then, that bull has been haunting me in the middle of the night, Bugling in the back of my mind.

I Have owned an Encore in .44Mag, and .410 shot. A contender super 14 in .223, a Taurus Raging Bull .454, Super Blackhawk .44Mag, as well as a couple other revolvers in non-hunting chamberings.

In the meantime Ive spent the last 6 years or so doing the closest thing to hunting I could find that was nearly free. Reading and Learning. Im pretty sure when the finances recover, I'll be ready for hunting, handloading, and wildcatting.

Thanks a million for the creation of a fantastic website. Its been a long time coming.

Hey, my name is Caldwell.
I grew up in Stafford, VA and now attend Texas A&M- Corpus Christi, my dad, Gary, has been hunting and shooting handguns for as long as i can remember. he tried getting me into it but i still like to just go to the gun range and shoot them more than i do hunt with them. Im pretty new to the site and just want to say nice job dad.

This is the greatest website ever! You guys are right behind it!! Long time Member, married forever, hunting with handguns longer, work for big-Pharma, 'nuff money, not 'nuff time, Love the SWPA shoot when I can make it. Ride my Road King everywhere, drive my 2500HD when it rains. Favorite guns are my S&W collection, TC Contender and Encore collections,my Stryker and my M1 Garands; my Enfields and Springfields aren't bad either. I love to hunt geese and ducks when I can't get to the ranges. Then there's fishing......

Hunting you ask? I love back-pack and horse-pack Elk, Deer, Pigs, Turkey, and DanB water-bottles-all taken with handguns-one can't have enough outdoor activities you know.
