Don't believe that is a legal weapon for Game here, if it is it shouldn't be!Anyone here deer hunt with their 1911 Chambered in 45?
Sorry that you took it as snobby!As am i. That's why I am asking.. no reason to be snobby. I only bow hunt but would like the challenge of a pistol hunt. And I think that if my deer is 20 yds and under it should be fine.
Or a wild hog. I'm right there with ya, Master Chief, on your handgun caliber selection. Good choice!No, but I have it with me and I am sure if I could get the game to get within 25 yards I would have no problem taking it. I hunt mostly with my 44SS8 now, only because I want to take a deer out to or beyond 50 yards with a hand gun. I have the 44 mag. sighted in for 100 yards, and I am sure it will take a whitetail without any problem.
No. I have a biker cousin who took 5 to the chest back in the 70s. He walked out of the hospital a month later, and he and some of his friends went to visit some members of a rival organisation. Can it put someone down at 20? Of course. Can it take wild game down at twenty? There's a good chance it will. A better choice though, would be to use a handgun that has hunting specific ammo available for it. One of the magnum calibers (I consider 10mm a magnum cartridge), or 45colt, are far better hunting loads than a 45acp.But you would trust it to put a person down at 20?
