Hunting handguns

Ruger .22/45 SS Target model with Leupold Red dot--rabbit, rats, squirrel,
prairie dogs, gophers, possums, skunks, spruce grouse, etc.

Various .41Magnums with iron sights and various optics--armadillos,
coyote, antelope, mule and whitetail deer, black bear, bobcat, turkey,
elk, duiker, wart hog, wild boar, blue wildebeeste, impala, blesbock,
red hartebeeste, bushbuck, and a couple old nasty range cows.

T/C Encore in '06 with Burris 3-9X EER scope-- wart hog, blesbock, kudu,

Ruger Super Redhawk 480 7 1/2" tube w/ factory sights. The only game I've had walk in front of it during hunting season was a few spruce hens, they were very effectively taken with my plinker load, which consists of a 310 gr LFN over a small dose of red dot for 700 fps.

My big game load is currently a 460 gr WFN @ 1050 fps. Now if I can just get a legal moose to walk in front of it this fall :lol:

I'm sure that I've missed a few however these are some of the calibers and critters for me. As I've said in Sixgunner Mag. my goal is to take a deer with a different caliber or different bullet each year.
Short barrels long range!!
