    It sounds like you had a crowd, that's a cool way to get people involved in the hunt! Nice shooting, I bet TrueBlue wishes he could have spent more time with that pistol :)

    Nice shooting......I don't know that I would have taken that shot with the second doe standing so close, but that's just me. Either way nice shooting.

    The camera angle was different for me (shooter) because the antelope were way off to the right when I originally set up. They were moving from my right to left and by the time they stopped long enough for a shot they were way to my left.

    I've seen some of the most amazing shots anyone could make done successfully so I am pretty hard to impress.

    Kinda pisses on the arguent we've been having about how much accuracy is affected by recoil, and how much of felt recoil is due to muzzle blast too HA!

    I,m not knocking on the shot, but how long is barrel on a hand gun , before it
    is called a rifle? To me a hand gun has a barrel from 3- 10 inches!

    There are only a handful of states in our great country that even mention maximum barrel length, so usually we keep them in an easy to handle 15-18", helps keep the velocity up. Just another option we have here in the USA :)

    It also has a buttstock that meets your shoulder.
