my springfield 1911-A1 in a M12 holster is what rides on my belt when im hunting. the 1911 design after almost 100 years of military service from trench warfare in the mud and blood from WW1 to the sand and blood of the gulf war. a little pig hunting shouldnt pose a 1911 much issue.

Default Polymer

You could pick up any of the major polymer pistols and you'd be safe. The 10mm is a great round but your options diminish with that choice of caliber.

And shot costs per round will go way up compared to the big 3.

I understand that. But if I was going to hunt (my opinion) with a reliable pollymer automatic pistol, it would be the 10mm ( That is what you said you wanted to do with it, hunt hogs) Ted Nugent hunts with a Glock 20 10 mm also. You can always get a .45 barrel and .45 magazines to have a different caliber. The barrel will drop in, and the .45 magazines will fit also.

I was under the impression the pistol would go with the OP hunting, but he didn't mention hunting with the handgun.

CZ75!
No matter what version.
Very reliable, very accurate, easy to shoot, fits smaller hands, affordable and you have reliable technology, that has been used since 1975/76.
The CZ75 is slim and can be carried comfortably.

CZ-USA -> Product Categories

CZ75 "B"



CZ75 SP-01



CZ75 Compact

Who ever you ask is going to pretty much give you there fan boy thoughs. ( Glock fan boy here) I would suggest a Glock, Smith Sigma, or Taurus 24/7 pro. In that order.

1. Glocks work. period. They have mud, dirt, and crap put them and they just work. Availible in all calibers that matter. ( own 2)

2. Smith sigma are a S&W (to me) glock knock off. ( own 1)

3. They are great and you can get a 9 or 45. ( own 1)
