Small game handgun. What do you use?

Thread starter #1
What handgun do you use for Small game? I have always used a Ruger Mark series (currently this Mark III). Just wondering what some of you other guys prefer. I threaded the barrel and machined the compensator. IMG_20180729_220017_639.jpg

It is one nice pistol

I will be using the Single Six .22 LR I just picked up
Ruger MKIII .22/45. I love the old Single Sixes, too. I had an old long-barreled one that I hunted with for years, until it got stolen. I miss it. It was my main coon hunting gun for years.
