What makes em jumpy. I have witnessed some strange things deer hunting. My son reminded me that if I had had a rifle the other day the deer most likely would have run. A man with a stick is a dangerous thing. I began to wonder if the deer was less intimidated because I was alone man in the tree line without a stick and smelled of earth. I say that because when bird hunting you can seemingly walk up on deer bedded deer and they just look at you when you are walking without a gun. Have a gun in your hand and they start running at 200 yards.

During the hunting season the mear presence of a slow moving pick up seems to drive the deer into shock. I watched as a pickup full of hunters slowed to a stop, opened the doors and watched a patch of grass in the middle of a cut corn field. The deer low crawled out the back side toward a tree line. and took off to parts unknown.

I realize that this America and everybody is entitled to there opinion, it gets a little tiresome hearing other people deciding what is a handgun and what is not. If a person wants to hunt with revolvers, thats good everybody has to know his limitations. I have hunted with singleshot handguns all my life, its good to know I wasn't hunting with a handgun all this time. I guess its too late to learn something new, BULLHOCKEY......

I would love to be allowed to hunt with a handgun! You guys in the US don't know how lucky you are.

We are only allowed to use handguns for target shooting and then you have hell's own problems getting a license. And after that you have to prove attendance at a certain number of shoots otherwise your license is pulled and your handgun/s confiscated. Mad I handed mine in while they were offering to compensate you for them. Had to agree to not applying for a handgun license for 5 years though. Sad

Oh well, I only have longarms now so that is what I use. Very Happy Very Happy

Cheers, Vince

I second Vince's post Smile

The thing is in some places you cant hunt/own handguns as easily as long arms. Sad Now Canada's laws for handguns arnt that bad as what Vince is discribing. I'm told and its pretty easy to get a license but your only allowed to use them in "Athorized" shooting ranges and you need to get a "Transport Athorization" to just move them from your house to the shooting range and back!

As for all of you in the US you know what makes something a handgun ?? If it was filed on the 4473 (I think thats what its called :?) form as a handgun Very Happy

Dimitri

George, I'd love to be able to do that. I reckon that I was almost as good a shot with my TC Contender in 30.30 as I am with my Mod 94...well I like to think so Laughing Laughing .

Our Federal Govt went crazy with our firearm laws when a dickhead decided he wanted the world record for a mass shooting...happened down in Port Arthur in Tasmania some years ago. One clown goes "postal" and all of the legal, sensible firearm owners of the nation pay for it.
Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad

Oh well, 'spose ya can't help bad luck.

Cheers, Vince
