Any one out there do any hand gun hunting in Africa? I have used hand guns sucessfully in the states on Deer but have never taken one to Africa! Having won many pistol championships in metallic Silhouette the skills are there but shooting steel a target goes down you get a score in real life a lousy hit could be a lost target! Having shot deer out of a tree stand and getting all the time you need for an ethical shot is great, but I know from my 2 safari's I usually had little time to set up & complete the shot. Which keeps me bringing my trusty rifle! I have shot deer with a 357 revolver, a 30/30 T/C, and my Rem XP 100 in 308. The 308 is the gun I plan on bringing to Africa someday probably in 10 -15 years when I take the grand kids on there first safari! By then I should have the trophies I want and not worry if I don't get a shot off!
