Who's heading out Monday with a handgun? And what are ya shooting?
I'll be in Ohio with my super black hawk, looking to tag a nice buck. Back in PA on the saturdays, I'll be looking for a doe with my GP-100. I am really pumped from shooting so well my last trip to the range.

7-30 Waters in a contender format is a very,very good deer caliber.I have been looking to pick up another Waters since I foolishly traded mine away.

My under 50 yard gun is a 586 with a 2x leupold on top. Farther than that it's a 25-06.

I'm running a 158 grain xtp with aa number 7 powder for just shy of 1300 fps. The gun will put em in there if I do my part.

I have a Ruger Super Redhawk .44 mag with open sights.
I've taken it with me, but never had the opportunity to take a deer with it. Use 300 grain Hornady XTP's.

Usually have enough crap I'm carrying in and opt not to carry an extra 6 pounds, but I do carry it on drives in the real thick stuff.

I found if I carry a rifle and my pistol the rifle always seems to go off first. I have taken 1 large doe with my .357 shooting Rem 125 gr hollow points.
