    Any of you try hunting game with a semiautomatic handgun? I now a fella that has shot a couple deer from his stands with his 1911.
    The big Desert Eagles make some holes too. I'm gonna try carrying a back-up/close range gun with me hunting this fall and it may well be a semiauto.

    I have a Desert Eagle .44. I've always planned on taking it hunting but never have. Years ago, I used to hunt rabbits with a S&W 645. That was very fun! I was helping my Granfather keep'em out of his garden. I killed alot. Heck, I even shot some with my bow. Called that practice. Good Shooting!
