I used to watch a hunting show many year ago where the host only used Glock handguns to hunt game of all sizes. I know that he used 9mm-45ACP for deer. He used 10mm for elk and black bear. I just want a new challenge in the woods. Plus, if I get a firearm that I feel comfy enough with to hunt with, it will be excellent for personal protection (in theory).
I was thinking about the Tactical model that RIA has. Maybe have a gunsmith do some modifications to make it a bit more accurate if I don't feel comfy with taking it to the woods.
Any advise anyone?
Mine on cast. It does slightly better with Gold Dot. I've tightened and lapped the rails and it unlocks just a bit later now.
I have not yet installed a fitted bushing, and I expect to get maybe just a bit more accuracy out of doing that. It's cheap and easy to do, so why not.
I'd find a good quality BONDED bullet in 230 to 240gn (Gold Dot or XTP come to mind) and drive it at around 900fps.
