Default What handgun will you use this year?

I know I will be carrying my G40 most of the time in addition to a long gun. I also will get my .44 mag Redhawk in the mix as well as my .357 max single shots.
What are your plans?

Haven't had an opportunity to use my G20 with a factory 6" barrel on game yet, so it will definitely be on call.
I hope the old favorite 8" .357 doesn't get jealous

Will be using my .45 Colt Ruger Blackhawk - Iron Sights -
with Buffalo Bore 260 gr. JHP (1450 fps) for deer and the bigger 325 gr. LFN for bear.

These new Pachmayr grips should help on the recoil a good bit versus the stock walnut grips I just replaced.

-MGSL (Match Grade Slide Lock)
-KKM match barrel (AlTiN satin black coating / treatment, additionally, per my request to KKM (Thanks, Cy!), this barrel has been properly throated to work with my extra wide WFNPB bullets by Montana Gunworks (.402") with the proper amount of freebore to allow perfect feed and accuracy from these loads.

Super Blackhawk Bisley Hunter .44 Magnum
-lighter trigger spring replaces the stock spring
-cylinders have been trued to within .0005" of each other for consistency
-barrel was firelapped by yours truly
-FO front sight (green)

Fusion Hunter 10mm Auto (custom built longslide 1911 by Bob Serva @ Fusion)

G29 (Gen 3)
-Ghost Pro 3.3lb connector w/ comp. spring kit

-should have MGSL by deer season for this pistol, as well...

I hope to get myself some venison with one of the above firearms, as I try each and every season.

Good luck, all!

Either my 1911 in .45 or a wheeleygun if I find one for the right price before deer season opens up. .45 does a good job on smaller deer and hogs.
