Hunting gets you in the woods, gets you in fresh air, and is a good workout walking, and its fun trying to find deer.

So what guns do you guys use to hunt? I either use my Ruger M77 30-06 for Elk and Pronghorn or my Russian SKS for deer.

Marlin 1894c. 158 grain JSP.

I hunt in heavy brush with the odds of a shot over 50 yards very minimal.

Im going to hunt coyotes after deer season.

This year since i was in the high country looking for elk and monster white tail, I used my Howa 1500 thumbhole in a 338 win mag with 225gr accubonds...and as a side arm for the thicker brush areas i had my Glock
10mm with 200gr buffalo bore.

I know that 10mm can be used for predator defense, but how powerful is it compared to a 357 magnum or 45 ACP?

More powerful then both. A 45acp is designed for thin skinned creators like us, yes its 230gr but only goin around 800fps. A .357 in a bear load is 180gr and still only goes 1130fps. NOW!!! the 10mm is a 200gr FMJ going over 1200FPS...thats penatration with power.

Always thought a 10 like a delta would be awesome.

A delta would be cool if Colt would put some workmenship into their products...The only guys that make a mainstream 10mm that is worth anything is Dan Wesson, Kimber, and Glock. I personally went with the Kimber and the glock and i love them both.

I wouldnt want a colt but that style of full size 1911 is cool. Id want a Springfield Armory, if they made one......

You listening springfield?

Dan wesson discontinued 10mm and the commander bobtail classic, which was a stupid move.

Dont like Kimber or Glock.

And Colt has craftsmanship, they just dont care about the civilian market, do no R&D, and all their fanboys think that colts the best since they are "the original" or whatever. They care so much about the mil/le market they just give us basic guns and jack the price up since it has the colt name.
