@ jacko- not so, revolvers can be very (very accurate), they can also be inaccurate. it's the responsibility of every hunter to insure the weapon they choose be it archery, handgun, long gun or Atlatl is suitable for the game being hunted, is accurate and capable of swift kills. Often it's not the inherent inaccuracy of a weapon, but the person behind said weapon. Certain weapons simply take more practice (and patience while hunting I might add)- archery and handguns come to mind. I've successfully dispatched dozens and dozens of grouse with a handgun, if the grouse is out my effective range I simply don't shoot. I've also taken a wide variety of big game w/ a handgun; I do take the time to work up proper loads, put the needed practice in at the range and insure that I'm in effective range and have a good shot- but that's responsible hunting, regardless of the weapon.
I might have been fooled, but I didn't take the OP's thread/question as a troll, I will point however I quickly called troll on the .380 thread :)
for those with a real abhorrence of firearms, hunting, sounds like even fishing for some- I could support the suggestion of a lightweight hunting sub forum
my intention with any of my posts is not to offend- simply to answer a question to the best of my ability or share my personal experience on a subject
I think it is also important to be aware that many active members of this site (including the founder) are hunters and fishermen/women and that we take pride in that activity (just like we do with hiking/backpacking)
