I'm looking for advice and wondering about complications in hunting Africa with a handgun? While I've hunted North American game with all manners of legal archery and firearms equipment, I've generally considered myself a rifleman above all others. However, in reviewing my track record, if I'm one more than others, it's a handgunner - I spend more time and effort afield with my revolvers, and a heck of a lot more range time. While I'd never consider a trip to Africa without a rifle, I'd like to at least attempt to take some game with a handgun, even if the rifle is hanging on my shoulder when I do. Are there complications for legal application in Africa? Cartridge requirements? Barrel length requirements? Is it more difficult to travel with handguns? Are REAL handguns allowed, aka revolvers, or are only specialty bolt action or break actions like the Encore in DG cartridges allowed? Are there any species where handguns are not allowed? My initial thoughts for what I'd like to use - asking for criticism or confirmation: I own a great number of handguns, but would only consider a few of them as potential African options, let alone DG. I would like to consider either a 357/44 B&D Mag 7.5" Redhawk (158grn bullet at 2,000fps, or 180grn at 1850-1900, haven't loaded any 200grn pills yet) or a 7.5" Ruger Super Blackhawk 44mag for PG, depending on the game weight I'd be targeting. I've taken american bison with the 44mag, but the speed trajectory on this 357/44 is quickly earning my favor - I'm not convinced that 158-200grn pills are ever appropriate for 500lb+ game. Would love to tag a hyena with that 357/44, as I'm a coyote caller from way back, and have built this revolver to that purpose. For Dangerous Game, I'd be considering cape buff primarily, possibly lion. I'm not a fan of the X-Frame Smiths, have owned and already sold a 460S&W, but would consider getting another one, or a 500. I have multiple 454Cassull's at my disposal, my favorite of which is a new 5.5" Super Redhawk "Toklat" - this would be my desired 'go-to' option. I also have 480Ruger and 475 Linebaugh Super Redhawks, but have not found the 475 to be significantly more powerful or harder hitting than the 454. I haven't researched handgunning in Africa much yet, so I'm starting here. Any and all advice is welcome!
