Before I ask the question, I'll just lay my ducks in a row:
I have a couple owheel guns that I use for woods at present, but I have come to the stark realisation that I am far better (shooting wise) with semi's. I have always shot semi's (20 years military) and am just better. Don't get me wrong, I can put a wheel gun where it counts, just never as effectively as a semi.
2nd I don't concur with the 'revolvers are more reliable' theory. I have seen more/as many failures with wheel guns as I have semi's. A modern, quality semi can be 100% reliable, they have saved my life and put many in the grave for me to be happy there.
So I want to get a semi for the woods. Gotta be a 10mm or 460 Rowland or 38 Super at a push. Desert Eagle (50) is just to big.
It will normally be a back-up to my 45-70 or äs primary in "low-risk" bear areas.
the only 10mm I have had the opp to fire is a Glock 20. Shot well, but those darn grips are huge - also I am not a huge fan of the Glock platform.
So any other personal experience/recomendations for big-bore semís? I like the looks/features of the EAA Polys, anyone used one?
P.S. I reload so ammo not a huge issue.
