First Pistol Blood

Finally got first pistol kill. It has been a long time coming. Hadn't been in my stand for 45 minutes when a sounder of 5 walked out 130 yds away. Had my T/S Encore 7mm-8. Went about 10 feet and layed down. 130 lbs.

    It is the best. I will be going a lot of practice with revolvers. I will take my rifle when the freezer is empty, but I really enjoy the handgun part.

    Good pig! Welcome to the forum. Do you live in "God's Country, Don't Drive Through it Like Hell." Or are you just channeling John Wayne?

    Good shooting. Nice pig. Now I want to do it with my .357 Mag S&W. I've had it too long not to have scored with it yet.
