    What's your prefered sidearm

    A lot of us carry a sidearm when hog hunting. It's always made sense to me no matter what your hunting to have a backup. What are you legging?

    I normally carry a Glock 23 .40SW, but this year when I'm up in Oklahoma black powder hunting I want to try to stalk some with this.

    nice!! whats the range on that? I am guessing it can put a hog down in 1. still, whats the risk of having one of these furry lil freight trains take it and come back pissed off at your dinner invitation?

    I shot one through the boiler room with a 240 grain .44 mag hollow point and knocked her to her knees and she still got up and ran off. She didn't go far, but she got far enough she could have gotten to me if she had been so inclined. Of course, I would have most likely given her the other five still waiting in the cylinder of the gun.
    Most usually I have a Glock 17 and it is not because I have much belief in the 9mm, but I shoot it all the time and I know I can put them exactly where I want them to go. My sidearm when I am deer hunting is usually my 4 inch S&W 686 with 158 grain JSPs or my Ruger Blackhawk in the same caliber.

    During muzzleloader season I carry a Ruger Stainless Old Army Cap and Ball revolver. I have used it twice as a back-up and both times it functioned flawlessly.

    I'm guessing the same thing.

    I have no idea. I just said I have a plan, I never said it was a good one.

    1911 - .45 acp, ball ammo, but I don't usually leave the stand until I am sure the hog isn't getting back up. Shoot, watch, and wait and call the wife while waiting.
