Any quality gun with a 4"-6" barrel should work for you. The really light guns are meant to be carried when the is an ever so slight chance you will need to to protect yourself.HighCountry66 said:I haven't decide which way I would definately lean. Hope this thread gets lots of response. I just want one for driving deer when I'm in the thick stuff. Very slight chance I'd need it, but beats dragging a rifle through the briars and keep my hands free. Also don't want a heavy revolver to wear all day and walk miles with it on my hip.
I think for myself that I would probably buy the Mountain Gun.

And I would agree that a chest rig (Uncle Mike's did make one for the 6" scoped.... Here is one for the 8" )is the way to go for a scoped rig.HighCountry66 said:I haven't decide which way I would definately lean. Hope this thread gets lots of response.

But if your going with open sights, a quality leather belt holster, on a good hunting belt, with suspenders will get you around all day without too much discomfort. Way easier than toting a rifle if your doing a lot of walking.
