To CCPAHUNTER, Look man, I am sitting at work and reading articles and stuff and I question somethings people do. I love this website and think there is alot of knowledgable people on here. I spend most of my work day on this site. I value the opinions of everybody that leaves a comment. I am not inany way going to try to hunt deer with a 9mm or a 40cal. Just seeing what you guys think would be the max effective range. I have just been reading about smaller guns lately and just posting some questions. Actually my next one was going to be sling shots, but I think you are on to something with the rubber bands and paper clips hmmmmm... hahaha take care all....

Killadoe
The sling shot should work fine if you keep your shot under 30 yards and use controlled expansion ammo.

My M1 carbine does great up to 100-125 yards. Great for walking in the woods!

I have a Marlin camp 9 ... I cant imagine using it for deer. Sure if you deflate the lungs they will die. But 9mm imo isn't much of a deer round. just an opinion though as I'll stick with my 12 ga or 50 cal. ML

Now as for acuracy... I'm planning on taking this gun out and sighting in again. Its been a few years since I shot it. I was thinking of using it on coyotes if I can hit what I want over 50 yards. If I remember right the gun was pretty good to 100 yards. But like I said its been years.

yeah...it would kill a deer. I would say out to a hundred yards. My 9mm carbine keeps a very tight group at 100 yards. Not a very good round for killing things though.

Well, I'd say the range is over 17", no less or the barrel is going to deflect the bullet. I don't know as far as a high end, 5-6 hundred yards?
