I wont be doing it this year but next year when I get to PA I will be using my DanWesson 445 supermag..

NJ doesn' t allow handgun hunting[:@], If they did I don' t think I would hunt with anything else.

Gun' s not nearly as important as where you hit them, especially with a pistol. Keep the range close so you can hit them right. If you want to take long shots, get a rifle.

The Ruger 480 round is suppose to be a good hunting cartridge. I' ve never fired one.I use either a Redhawk in 44 Mag or a SRH in 454 Casull.I haven' t shot a deer with a handgun yet.Hopefully this year will break the ice.
