      I gota say this is not a good idea. For one handguns don't have as much strength as a long rifle no matter how big the bullet is. It still won't have what it takes to make a clean kill. Then the accuracy of a hand gun is know where near that of a rifle. In the end it comes down to killing for meat and sport or killing to kill. In my book killing to kill is not OK. That is just my opinion. We do live in the US and all sorts of opinions are allowed.

          Not the ultimate test of a true hunter.

          Gnaw a spear to take your game.

            I would say using a knife on wild boar would be the ultimate test

              It can be dangerous but exciting. When it comes down to it, its all personal preference. Handgun hunting is not for everyone.

                i really want to do some hunting with the Smith .460. I really can't say why. It is almost like bow hunting. I guess it's just something different to say I've done.

                    It is almost nothing like bow hunting.

                        A knife or a spear.
