Not exactly specialty pistol but pistol none the less. I have had a great season this year. My wife and i eat deer like it is going out of style. I needed at least one more to make it to next season. we literally eat venison 3 nights a week. Deer are few and far between in these parts these days. picked up a custom smithed s&w 44 mag over thanksgiving, worked up a load with some 300 grain hornadys, and have been trying to draw blood with it ever since. I went to fort stewart this morning as a kind of last hurrah. well at 11:05 this morning i had two does feed out of a bay. I dropped them both with my 44. that thing hits like the hammer of Thor. shot first one it went DRT. the other bounded about five yds and looked at it's no longer moving friend. I lined up on that one a bam DRT. I have killed a freakin pile of deer in my life including many neck and head shots but this thing takes the cake. Neither animal knew what hit them. both deer were quartering slightly to me. both were shot behind the shoulder. neither one so much as kicked. it reminded me of head shooting squirells with my sako HM2. that 300 grainer is something else. I finally know what all the fuss is about! i am afraid i am going to be an addict. best part is meat is in the freezer and we might actually make it to next season with venison.
