    I was watching the show "Hogs gone wild" and the "Expert" hog guy had 3 pigs cornered. The man natality took care of the big male first, and when the male let out a scream or three the female and the smaller male attacked. That might be a good reason for fast follow up shots. Also who wants to sit in a tree and wait for them to leave?

    Whole heartedly agree, Zonie. Pointability is the key to the code for EastTexas. With the way he sounds like he's lookin' to roll, I seriously doubt there'd even be enough time to empty one cylinder, let alone swap in a new one!

    What's important is him having a good chance of hitting what he's pointing at (again, there will be no aiming involved).

    While sitting in the tree, there is plenty of time to reload even the most cumbersome pistol.

    Hell, you could sit there and get off 20+ shots and even take the time to wipe the fouling off of the face of the cylinder so it will keep on turning easily. :rotf:

    Capper is right tho. My remmie is so bag at getting stuck that the only thing I could do with my spare cylinders is throw them at the hogs, but my gun is worse than most. :( :(

    If you make it into the tree, don't forget to bring a poking spear.

    You mean we're going to answer his question and not beat him to death with irrelevant facts? :dead:

    Then I'm back to my recommendation from a few pages ago: Dragoon or ROA, then Remington. Just because I want a hole all the way through a hog if I shoot one.

    Question was answered 3 pages back. Now we're free to talk about what we want.

    Not a bit. Folks have said a lot worse about me and they weren't smiling when they said it. :)

    Stophel.
    I've got 5 shooters and 6 shooters but my 6 shooters only get to have 6 loaded rounds when I'm at a shooting range.

    I don't trust Colts little "safety pins" nor Remingtons cylinder notches so if I'm going to holster my C&B revolver to carry it, my 6 shooters only get 5 loaded chambers. The hammer rests on the 1 unloaded chamber.
    That's the way my dad taught me to do it and as he lived to the ripe old age of 95 I figure he must have known something. :)

    You can only load 5 in CAS too. It's the only safe way.

    Well, OK, since Capper's Rules are in effect here, let's change course a bit and vote on a projectile for east texas in his hog-slayer;
    I say big .44 with a conical bullet...simply because of the added knockdown power. What say you?

    If you can get one to load? You might have to take out the cylinder to load it.

    I load 200 grn .451 conicals at home on my stand, then shoot east to load balls at the range. If I were in hog country that is how I would load. They are not hard to load in my remmi.
