Re: What's involved in putting a scope on a handgun?
First your going too have to get a mount that fits your make of pistol. a Weaver mount may fit, remove your rear sight and match up the screw holes for the mount your using. In some cases you may have to have the pistol drilled for a mount in which case you'll need a gunsmith. I'd think carefully about the scope, it can be pretty hard getting a deer in a scope. I have a T/C with a scope on it and man is it hard getting a deer lined up for a shot. You may do better with a Red Dot where you can keep both eyes open. A scope that has a lighted cross hair on the lowest power may also work. The biggest problem I have is lining up for the shot. My pistol pretty much stays in my gun safe. It has a 2x7 mounted on it with a lighted cross hair on it. It's a 7 by 30 Walters got it when my dad passed away back in 95. Good luck on what you decide.
God, Family, Country in that order.
