I have run big game hound for decades ..

Its big rough country and when you leave the horse a pistol is the weapon of choice

I have found that NO pistol is worth a dam ..

I have seen 44 mags ball up time after time on a bears skull doing no damage ..

I once shot a lion with a 38 special ..Shot up all my shells reloaded shot the rest and had to go home and get a real gun ...

Recently I butchered two pigs I used my 44-40 hot hand loads .. Six shots point blank To one pig 0 penetration .Tried my wife's 357 same thing the old 86 in 45-70 was resorted to ..

I did have a contender that packed the punch but there was no good way to carry it so it may as well of had a stock ..

Auto pistols [I have had them all ] They just arn`t packing the gear ..

I would suggest a shotgun [One to the legs one point blank to the face ] or a .308 min battle rifle..

My instructor frequently ask the question, "Do you know what a pistol is for?" "Its to fight your way to your shotgun!"

I've been a Glock fan and owner for quite a few years. I have also owned an XD45 Compact.

I did like the grip of the XD a bit better but not the trigger.

I think the Glock 19 is about the best all around model. Great balance, mid sized, and ALWAYS works.

I picked up something else last year, for concealed carry, and really like it a lot. It's the Taurus 709 Slim.

Very compact single stack and very Glock like trigger and really easy to carry. I wish Glock would make a slim single stack version like this.

Got rid of my 26 and my Keltec PF9 since I got the 709.

And for shotguns, Mossberg 500 was the first gun I purchased for myself (back in 1984) and still have it very handy in the house. Another one that always works. :)

Can't contribute much to the conversation, I shoot a bow. But I will say, reading men(no offense if I missed a woman's post???) talking about their guns, (or toys) turns me right on!!!

I'm in Training right now to become an Animal Control Officer...in a month we go for POST 832...and firearms the following week. I owned a Glock 19, a Mossburg Riot shotgun and an Uzi...all three were stolen from my house in '93 and I thought what if I walked in and got shot by my own gun...anyway, we've already made the decision to purchase another Glock as soon as I have my card! More to follow...

338 Lapua would be my choice ..

I know the 416 has found some favor but there is a point where weight and perceived recoil take a tole ...

Also expense of creating rounds becomes prohibitive with no Inexpensive 416 bullets to be had ..

Shooting up to a mile you have to be cool and practice a lot ..

I dont know, I still like my 50 cal :) I'm a big fan of black powder rifles. Love to build them and make all the ammo and everything :)

I know I asked my Hubby who is a gun owner/enthusiest about glocks because of this thread and he started talking about how he prefers a sig saur (sp?) and why. I had to jump him! I attribute it to our instincts as women to feel protected. Sorry feminists, I want a big strong man to protect me.

Erin, my wife is the same way, but....she has her own .357 that she carries. :)

A friend of ours, who is a Police Officer asked her why she carried such a powerful gun. She responded "It makes me feel pretty." He laughed and didn't ask any more questions.

i'm pretty late to this post, but i'll put my opinion up anyways lol!

i don't have very much knowledge or experience with hand guns, my forearms and wrists are pretty girly.... my hand almost always tilts back when i shoot and that makes me nervous. in my head i somehow feel as though i'll end up shooting someone who, as a freak of nature, sprouted wings and decided to fly overhead while i was shooting my gun. i know, that's a pretty silly and obviously impossible fear, but whatever, that's just me lol. mostly i'm just a hunter, gimme a shotgun or a rifle and let's get out into nature. i'm ashamed to admit in this company, that i only own one shotgun and one rifle...! my dad's a hunter as well, obviously, but he's really into guns in a way that sounds like "one day, i'll own every gun on the market." you can't imagine how many safes he has in his shop. he actually has two safes at my grandparent's house even, just incase he decides to go hunting while he's up in kansas, but didn't come prepared. a man's got to have a selection, doesn't he? currently he's working on building a rifle, because he met a guy that goes to long range tournaments and that guy builds rifles, so now my dad has to own a gun that he's built.... lol.

anyways, i'm excited to hear that there are still some people in the world who don't think guns are the root of all evil! i thought i was a dying breed. and to think, you all like tortoises too! what an exciting discovery haha! tom, i suspect that i should expect no less from you, you definately seem like the type of guy to have this type of hobby too!
