Your photo makes me wince a bit.
I have a S&W model 57 - .41 mag.
Had never brought it with me into the stand. Dunno why. Just never did.
So last year just for kicks I brought it. Opening day a 6 pt walks nonchalantly up the drive into the gravel pit. I have about a 2 second window where I can take a shot. He's only about 60 feet away. I tried to get on him with my .270 but as I mentioned below, am not real fast in getting a scope onto a deer. He just keeps walking, gets behind some brush, and then some more brush and the 2 sec window closes. I never pull the trigger. Grrr
Then I remember the 57.
It would have been a perfect setup and it never crossed my mind to grab it. Double Grrr
This year though, and forever after this, I will keep it in mind and a chance like that won't escape me.
I've taken other deer that close several times in the past so now I'm on a mission to get my first handgun deer.
