Very Very Cool. What a way to start out with a handgun. NICE SHOT!! I would consider that a trophy with a rifle.

PFC, On second thought I`am giving you 4 stars **** on your hunt. That was a fantastic shot!!!! I`ed be lucky to hit something the size of a deer`s head,
offhand , with iron sights if it was stock still....Your off to a great start..

James, Thanks....I'm sure it was a combination of a LOT of practice, and a LOT of Luck. I have been VERY impressed with my PC. I put about 1500 rounds through it in '07, almost all 158 grain rainier bullets, but my Hunting load I used Hornady's 180 Grain XTP JHP, with 12.8 grains of #2400. on my chrono it is running right around a 1150-1200 fps average. It's worked well so far. I ended the season with 3 whitetails with my hand gun. The last two were standing there together at about only 30 yards or so, and that was about the end of that show down, thanks to the smooth double trigger pull and dead solid accuracy....I was able to get two clean kills, and 100% of the meat was saved.....If you have any handgun loads you've used and would like to share...let me know, I'm always open for a good loading discussion.

Now we know how you pulled off the shot. Anyone willing to spend the time and practice as much as you did eared that fine shot.

PFC, I own a FA`s m83 in 357mag and can really push those 180gr bullets because of the strength of the m83. I`am working with Nosler 180gr Partitions and am waiting for Swift to start selling a 180gr A-frame thats listed on their web site. I would love to use any one of these 180gr bullets on a Wyoming pronghorn hunt.James

PFC, Forgot to add that I picked up a limited edition S&W 686 with 5" old style barrel and a V-notch rear sight a red optic front. Always use to square notch rear and black Patridge front and thought the new set up would not be accurate. I was wrong....damm gun can shot on fire. JFS
