    Hello everyone,

    I'm from North Texas (Dallas Metro) I hunt in east & south texas. I enjoy hunting large game with a bow and rifle, however I do have an interest in hunting with a handgun (magnums) My favorite rifle calibers are 243 & 30-06. I own both and I feel that I don't need to purchase another rifle to cover all my hunting needs (of course I will buy more rifles). IMO there is no real need for a magnum rifle; so long as you are proficient with your weapon you can make those long shots without a magnum (I would like trying one out however) . Anyhow to each their own and good luck on your hunting.

    Calibers of interest ==> 25-06, .270 win, .17 hmr, 44mag

    Welcome to G&G! I use a .270 for hunting, and it's never let me down. I've shot the .17, and it's a great little varminter. And I own three .44 mags, and I love 'em! I don't have any experience with the 25-06, but I hear it's a good round also. Any are good choices to add to your collection. Enjoy the forum!

    Aaronb2245: Sir; Welcome from NC; Share your experiences and thoughts:)
    I have some long firearms; gravitating for many years toward handgun only.
    My interest in hunting with handguns has more to do with being outside.

    Now:) I would like to come to Texas and check out some of your Pigs:)
    handgun style of course.
    .44 will serve you well. Rugers of course. :09:

    Welcome Aaron. What part of South Texas do you hunt? When I was a kid, my grandfather took me to Laredo to hunt a friend-of-the-family's ranch. I was too young to get the full benefit, but I remember discussing a "cow" I saw moving behind a pear bush that turned out to be a HUGE buck.

    I hunt primarily with a pistol now. My 44mag kills outnumber rifle kills over the past 10 years. You get all of the excitement of bow hunting, with fewer worries about the equipment.
