Best finish for hunting revolver?

What's the best finish for a hunting revolver and why?

You just shot an unarmed man. Well he should have armed himself!!! Clint Eastwood.

I've killed 'em with my 629 which is a Stainless revolver...and I've killed 'em with a model 29, which is a blued finish.

Neither was more dead than the other.

Rain, Snow, or Sleet didn't matter to the finish of either. I'd just choose what you like and shoot it.

X2. Shouldn't matter what finish the gun is if you take care of it. I've owned and hunted with stainless guns, blued guns, and coated guns. Didn't make the deer any deader...

I hunt with a stainless GP100, and while it's not a gloss finish it has some shine in the sun.

I wish I could say I could tell the difference in deer seeing them while hunting but I can't. I haven't seen enough deer to make that call.
