But I am not sure it would consistently and humanly kill an animal

if you are deer hunting with a pistol, then check your states game regulations, as some states have caliber and barrel length minimums as to what can be used. most people that deer hunt with a pistol prefer at least an 8" barrel to boost velocity some and also many mount scopes on their pistols. but, first check your states regulations so that if there are limitations or minimums as to barrel lengths or caliber, you can then shop accordingly. be a shame to buy a pistol that you could not legally hunt with after spending a bunch of money on it for deerhunting.

Op, you said to finish off a deer? Check your states laws, in Ohio you can cc, but NOT use it for hunting, and you can't hunt with two guns. Just a FYI...

True what primer said no your state laws first . IF legal to use second weapon to finish a deer and if you own a .22lr handgun take it for finishing a deer or hog? Place that round in behind the ear its all over. If you make a solid shot with a bow or firearm give it 10 to 20 minutes before looking, most times it will have long been died. Press it to quick even with a good shot and a deer can make a last dash for freedom and run a good ways. If a bad shot, then stop and shoot it with your main hunting weapon from a smart distance. Then buy the 357 mag you really want.

As I was reading the other post, this is exactly what I was thinking. I have an old, inexpensive H&R 9 shot .22 revolver that would be great for the purpose mentioned. If this revolver gets beat-up, rained on, muddy, it is ok.

The local game officer came to my neighbors house to put down an injured doe, he used a 10-22
