"Hand rifles" can be just as accurate as a full-sized rifle - ask about my Contender & deliver some pretty amazing terminal ballistics.

One great advantage of them is that you don't carry nearly as much weight.

A distinct disadvantage is that you're still shooting a pistol, which due to the limitations of the shooter (stance, etc. thrown in), field accuracy can suffer. I have a hell of a time shooting anything better than 6"/100 yds unless I drop down into a sitting position & braced on my kness.

Real drag about that is that I sometimes then lose the sight vantage, etc. - can be frustrating. Shooting off a stand would be a snap.

Still, for better field accuracy, I'll choose the rifle - it's my limitation, not the pistol's.
