    I second the single shot Contender. You can get any caliber (almost) from 22 rimfire to 30-30 or even 35 Remington. Plus you get accuracy only S&W/Colt/Ruger owners dream about. Pistol not enough? Then install a rifle stock and rifle barrel in a large choice of calibers including 30-30.

    Was it Teddy Roosevelt that said to never take a stick to a gunfight, or something like that. I am sure shot placement is important but clean kills are too.

    Just gotta add my 2 cents worth. The Super RedHawk 44 Mag would be my pistol of choice for 75 yd Deer Hunting. I have mine equipped with a Millet Reddot and I love it. The 44 mag is so versitile with different loading.

    Ruger Super Redhawk in 454 Casull comes with 1" rings and you have the option of shooting 45Colt. If you handload you have wild to mild and anything in between. Jim.
