    Not the ultimate test of a true hunter.

    Gnaw a spear to take your game.

    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.

    I still think it is a stunt, and not something to be encouraged. I wonder who gave grant77 all those +1's.
