I prefer the .454 Use it for wild boar in Kalifornia and here in Oregon. My wife has a Taurus .357 snub nose loaded with .38 specials. I use a Walther P99 .40 cal myself. Although it does have the interchangeable .357 sig barrel I was never a fan of that caliber.

Until I started hunting again, I have always preferred the bigger bang type gun. I started with my Weatherby 300 mag and downsized to a .270 and have since had much better results.

When I go turkey hunting down in Texas, my friend carries a .45 auto while he gives me a .22 for my side arm...Both do a fine job on the Turtles, armadillos, coons and possums.

Next year we are looking at coyote hunting on his property and I'm looking for a good varmint gun...Anybody have any suggestions? I was thinking Hoya .223 with the thumbhole stock.
