Is this the new normal?

Correct me if I'm wrong but...

Is a pistol even a viable hunting firearm?

In Georgia I have collected one whitetail with a 10mm Colt Delta Elite open sight semi-auto and several with a scoped 38-40 Ruger Blackhawk.  Hunting with a pistol makes you up your game in stalking and scouting your prey.  The shots must be closer.  My 38-40 pistol groups tighter with handloads at 100 yards than my little brother's 30-06.  Really hacks him off!

I am - but I should have also mentioned that these rules are for hunting raccoons.

I thought that's what an F150 was for. Bu-bump.

I was wondering, I have a friend who was talking about hunting moose with a handgun. I thought he said Maine, but I might be remembering wrong. 

22 caliber can be more dangerous than larger calibers because they tend to bounce and ricochet, especially when shooting near body’s of water.

Much like with 22s, the "bounce and ricochet" is why they recommend against hunting moose with a F150. Brake for Moose, it will save your life.

I don’t know what handgun my son uses, it has a lot of custom work done to it. But he shoots a tight grouping at 100 yards with hand loads also. I can hardly see the target at 100 yards, much less hit it with a iron sighted hand gun.😱

I once had a moose pacing me for 2 miles on the side of a road in Maine while I was driving home from work one night - when I slowed down, he would slow down - if I sped up, he tried to keep pace with me.  I was afraid he was going to decide to try to jump over my car to get to the other side of the road - this was one of the scariest things I've ever experienced because I saw what a moose trying to jump over a little car could do to the car.

Hmm, maybe one of your scouts gave your car a pheromone rinse. :D

I'll make sausage all day long; but I do NOT want to know how they collect that stuff...
