Thinking of getting either a .40 or 9MM in either the S&W M&P or Springfield XDM. Would primarily use the sidearm as poisonous snake protection or to put down wounded animal. Was wondering what caliber and brand most on here carry and why they like what they carry? Thanks.

I don't carry one since I always have my .22 mag rifle and .223 with me.

I already have my deer and hog rifle with me. Carrying a sidearm too just means more stuff to keep track of.

Old High Standard double 9, 6" barrel in 22 cal, always loaded with hollow points. All I've ever needed as a back up for wounded animals except for a few times my 30/30 was the go to tracking gun, 22 was still on the hip. Have finished off deer, pigs, bobcat, popped truck loads of rabbits, snakes, whatever. In the last 20 yrs have shot 99 percent of my trapped pigs with it. Have buddies that carry big side arms and can't hit squat when it's time to seal the deal. I love my HS 22. If I'm going hunting with a pistol I take my 357 mag.

I have a Springfield XD in 40 cal that I shoot well, but it stays at home when I'm hunting.
