Do people often hunt with revolvers? What are the drawbacks?
You have to get closer to your prey, takes a more skilled hunter to hunt with a pistol, same as a bow in a way. I've hunted pigs this way before, 44mag. Kind of of scary when your prey can kill you back if you don't drop em quick.
YesAnd the only drawback I can see Would be the range to shootBut you can always instal a scopeOn it- So no- no drawbacks
No. The problem is accuracy and lack thereof.
Shorter barrel revolvers, depending on the caliber, can give a good kickback, but you don't have a pinchpoint from a slide or the problem with getting burned by ejecting casings.
The drawback is you would look even sillier than the average hunter does.
Not often. Revolvers are intended for hunting only one kind of prey...
if you mean hunt with them as in carry them for just a sidearm, then no there is no drawbacks.
Most "hunters" utilize a revolver for a variety of reasons. The "prey" varies according to the species or intended threat. Caliber used depends on the size of the "game". Hope this helped.
Yes I'm sure there's lots of hunters that use revolvers. 44 mag will drop a deer if its close enough. Then there's the Smith & Wesson 500 magnum. sometimes for fun I'll take my 9mm after jackrabbits.
