RE: How many deer have you taken with a bow?

RE: 44 mag for coyote?

I use a uncle mike's bandolier type holster, you can find them at just about any shop. I don't like the hip/belt type for the revolvers too heavy. I end up walking around tugging my pants up all day.

RE: Let's do shotguns now...

Ok coyoteseeker, I've been proven wrong by experience. Like I said though, I hadn't tried it but it was just an idea. Not that I would buy one just for coyote, but I wonder how a .410 slug would work?
