MORE POWER TO YA
On trips during which a field gun has to perform double duty as a carry gun, I’ll often choose one in .357 Magnum, 10mm, .44 Magnum or .45 Colt. These guns offer a great range in power levels and can be loaded heavy for hunting or light for personal defense. The .357 can also chamber the .38 Special, and the .44 Magnum can also make use of the .44 Special. At other times, a midsized handgun in 9mm or .45 ACP is usually my choice.
