Very nice James. Were you the shooter in the video?

Gun in one hand and camera in the other?
It was fun. WTG James.

BTW if there is anyone that could truly host a down and dirty handgun hunting show, it'd be you James. Authentic field experiences without the sellout BS propaganda.

Plus a New Jersey redneck hosting a handgun hunting show would be entertaining as heck.

Exactly Randy!!! That's my issue with Dobb's, while it is hunting with a handgun, it's one type, one manufacturer, and fully pushing only Double Tap ammo.....complete sell out 💩 I mean you'd have to be ballistically illiterate to believe a 10mm loaded with a cast bullet is a Cape Buffalo round. (But the "sheep" ate it up, hook - line- and sinker) We need a show with all types of handguns, bullet makes and designs, and native and foreign game being hunted......got to be well rounded, so it at least seems authentic

A little something to ponder over.....imagine taking the standard 240 gr XTP 44 mag load, that's a typical WT deer load here in the south....pull the bullet and dump some powder out, lighten up the bullet by 40 grains, and shrink the diameter........yep that is the Cape Buffalo load that TV says is GREAT......then when folks go in the field and try to reciprocate the results.....and.....what???? It isn't the beast they were told.....hahaha.......common sense will help not give handgun hunting a bad name......see through the MESS......if it seems too good to be true.......it most certainly is

This is the boar from the video.... he was a good one... The 45 Colt shot a 260gr partition over a charge of 296 and gave good iron sight accuracy from the Ruger Bisley that was worked on by Gary Reeders gunsmiths...

Great boar, James! I love the perspective - May have to get me some of them glasses.


It takes 43 muscles to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
