I posted this in the fishing section because I really would like to know your opinion. As my trip to Ak comes closer I am torn as to which pistol to bring. I will be driving into Anchorage area and basing my trip from that area. And I will be fishing as much as possible.
Now the question. I have a 1911 in 45 that is my everyday carry gun. I am fast, deadly and accurate. But it is kinda heavy. Then I have a S&W model 29 in 44mag aka. the "dirty Harry gun". I shoot it but its bulky , heavy and with the hi-power loads I find myself flinching and more often than not the pie plate at 30 yards does get missed. My third option is my ruger 357 stainless 5 shot. it is my fishing carry gun and I am deadly to 20 yards but at 30-50 with the hi power mag loads the pie plate does get missed. But boy howdy is that little bugger loud!
So with that long winded post thank you for reading and thanks in advanced for your opinions.
