    If you got within 20 ft. maybe. I know here in, North Carolina, and most other, ''if not ALL,'' states it's illegal.

    They make single shot Hunters, I turned oldsemperfi on to one, dont know if he used it yet or not. I believe the biggest restriction you rill run into is the barrel length,

    big ugly is right,i killed a small doe at 50 yards with my vortec pistol.i used a 300 grain tc shockwave with a single 777 pellet.i am still trying to get used to the gun but i can shoot a three inch group with open sights at 50 yards.i think with practice and some time i could do better.the 13 inch barrel is scope capable but i plan on keeping it as is. old semperfi
