Yea I am going to use it this year for hogs. They seem to be more active in my area around dec-january. I have to go to the northeast for a few weeks so I was thinking of taking it with me to go on a possible preserve hunt but I will be going to NY and supposedly you cant bring pistols into that state if you are not a resident. Wish I was staying in Pennsylvania which has fantastic hunting and some good gun laws in contrast with NY and NJ, but it looks like I have to stay in either NY or NJ so I am just bringing a bolt gun instead. The guy I traded for this revolver gave me hundreds of different types or reloads for it so I am stocked on ammo / brass for reloading.
