I have my mind set on a ruger sp101. The barrel lengths available are 2.25 3ish or 4.2. Which of the 3 would be best to finish of a deer. I am new to this sight so im sorry for asking so many questions
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.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.
