Gee, not what I expected hpg. I have, a friend, who has killed many deer with a 22 magnum. I have a cousing who has killed many with the M1 Carbine. Tell me, what type of bullets were you using?
I realisticaly would not expect to shoot at one over 50 yards with such a cartridge, but I see that you have had a bad situation at a much closer range. I'll strongly consider your opinion.
To add: I was just glad to get the pistol, and thought I might try it for whitetail. Around here, a 150 pounder is big anyway. Best -
