Fifth, you ever hear of one shot one kill?
Sixth, as a hunter, I think your man card should be pulled for even hunting anything and not using the proper arm to humanly kill even the smallest game.
Seventh through tenth, WTF??
Obviously you are not a real hunter, your from ohio hunting whitetails from tree stands on hunting ranches. I bet you would feel stupid shootin grouse or rabbits from a tree stand but real hunters walk their happy ass around and shoot what they see, we do week long hunts when hunting deer/elk and its nice to come back with birds to eat while we're camping, if you dont know what camping is its when you go stay in the woods the whole time no city time sleepin in ur bed between tree stand visits.
To answer your "points"
FIRST, no your not supposed to carry 2 weapons at a time but a pistol is an exception since fish and game have never even brought it up while i'm standing there talkin to them with a rifle on my back and a pistol on my side.
Second, of course you can hunt big and small game at the same time since the seasons over-lap.
Third, i would shoot small game with a pistol because i'm not gunna haul a rifle and shotgun around with me at the same time.
Fourth, several shots to make a head/neck shot with my current pistol which was the point of my post if you could comprehend.
Fifth, every Big game animal i've ever killed has been one shot one kill, heart on the last one liver before that and lungs on the rest.
Sixth, it is legal to kill grouse with a sling-shot so a .22 pistol is overkill compared to that, do you shoot a .50 cal. at small game so that you can keep your "man card"?
Seventh through Tenth, yes you a gun fanatic and not a hunter. Go back to the hunting ranch city boy.
