Inspired by a recent American Hunter magazine piece, NRA member Dr. Stephen H. Corwin shares the story of his recent handgun elk hunt.
Until recently Glock pistols were viewed as guns for military, law enforcement, personal defense and competitive shooting. While many of these semi-automatic handguns were capable of being used in the field for hunting, most Glock owners never seriously considered them for that purpose. That has now changed with the introduction of the Gen4 MOS (Modular Optic System) pistols. The standout for hunting among the four Glock MOS models is the G40 Gen4 MOS chambered in 10mm Auto.
While there are many classic wheelgun calibers that date back to the late 19th century—the .44-40 and .45 Colt foremost among them—the relatively modern .44 Rem. Mag. has a well-deserved place among the most effective developments for a revolver, and will undoubtedly remain there for our lifetime and beyond.
Taurus makes its dedication to the hunting market more obvious than ever with the release of its Raging Hunter. Although “raging” is in its name, this .44 Mag. will make many hunters happy with its features and performance.
