Cabelas sells used guns on consignment. Which means they ask the seller how much he wants for it, then tacks on their 20%. I would look elsewhere.

If you are serious about handgun hunting, then get a serious hunting handgun.

This custom Ruger Super Blackhawk averages 2" groups @ 100 yards for 6-shots.

Standard accuracy and deer hunting load is as follows:

CASE: Starline nickel plated 44 magnum - match prepped.

PRIMER: CCI-350

POWDER: Winchester 296 / 24.0 gr.

BULLET: Remington 240 gr. JHP

Last time I hunted deer I killed a decent (for my area) buck and a doe with my Glock 40. Before that, I’ve used a Ruger SuperRedhawk .44 mag and a Glock 35 to successfully take deer. All iron sights, longest shot has been +/- 40 yards.

For deer, I would, in my opinion, not want to use anything less than a .357 Mag. It took too many shots with the .40 caliber for my liking. Other calibers will get it done, but something is comforting with using a +500 flb loading to hunt with. YMMV

It is more of a challenge, especially with traditional revolvers and autoloaders.

So I found a sorta reasonably priced Ruger MKIV target model with a 10” barrel locally. You guys think it would be worth selling my Smith and Wesson victory for it? I enjoy the victory, but feel the longer barrel could give me closer to rifle performance and accuracy than the victory’s 5.5” barrel.

I got to see all of those on Sunday too, my 1st thought was someone has a really NICE S&W collection, my 2nd thought was why am I so poor.
