Handgun Hunting, From Ruger Firearms

Tom Kelly continues an informative series, courtesy of  Ruger, to help folks who want to hunt with a handgun. His advice about your effective range is right on the money. I have hunted only small game with a handgun; and for squirrels you need to be able to put a bullet consistently through a squirrel's heart/lung area. That is mighty hard to do with iron sights, but you can keep shots in an inch circle with scope, if you take a rest with your gun. My neighbor was just telling me last week that since he put a red dot scope on his Ruger Mk II, he is making head shots on squirrels; something that he had never done before with a pistol.
