Morning of the 15th, best handgun buck to date. 40 yards offhand through a basketball size opening, lots more to the story but for now I am VERY happy. 300 grain XTP@ 1712.

Thanks again! I?ve always said there are those who hunt with handguns then there are handgun hunters, think I?m finally getting to that stage. Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving. I?ll put together a reader?s digest version of the hunt together.
