I have been shooting scoped handguns since 1968. Before you hunt with a scoped handgun spend alot of time at the range. Never try to use a scope of more than 2 1/2 X power off hand. Get used to fixing bith eyes on your target and bringing the gun infrount of your shooting eye. When you get the gun in the right place you traget will appear in the scope. If you try to use one eye and find your target while looking through the scope your in for a long day.
