It sounds like this is your first trip. We all romanticize about everything possible about Africa. That’s ok and not a bad thing.
Trust me, forget the handgun. You can’t hunt DG with it (a permit can be issued for many things not commonly legal I understand this) for the most part and a pistol as a backup gun in Africa is just not very common from a clients perspective.
Happy Safari planning. Check out my reports and YouTube channel.

CM,
That is nice work! I would like that cartridge slide for 50-110 Win. I would also use it for 500 S&W. Six cartridge loops would be perfect for me.

I will send you payment immediately.

Thank you,
