Howdy all. I want to do some handgun hunting for this year's whitetail season, but I'm not sure what round/model is right for me. I'll be using the gun for nothing larger than MD deer, so I doubt I need a cannon in the mold of a .454 or .480, etc. But then again, MD law stipulates that .357 is the "smallest" handgun cartridge that can be used for deer. So I'm thinking something in the .357 or .44 mag neighborhood is right for me, and I do like the dual-caliber capability of revolvers chambered in those rounds. But of course I'm open to suggestions.

So what do you guys think? .357s are easier on the wallet, but I don't want to compromise power and hunting load selection, two things I know the .44 has in spades. And as for models, I like the Rugers (GP100s and Redhawks), but the prices of the Taurus revolvers are pretty attractive. Any thoughts are appreciated.

The .44 is the one I would use. I went hunting a couple weeks ago and I was able to use the .44. Good caliber.
