So I usually carry my 1911 .45 on my hip when Hog Hunting for the "just in case" he is not dead or if I walk up on another one when tracking the first down after shooting him.

I have never had to pull the sidearm but just wondering what everyone else is carries while they are hog hunting, if anything.

I carry my Glock 19 loaded with FMJ ammo. I've used it before to finish several hogs that had been shot, but not dead.

I keep my Glock 43 on me at all times! Had to use it last weekend on a pissed off sow.

I carry either a Ruger SSS in 32 Mag or a suppressed 22 auto. Prefer the 22 cause I can earhole em and not make much noise and it costs a nickel.

1911 had a sounder come right at me after I shot big male. Had to fire off a few shots to ward of the sounder. There where at least 10 in the sounder a few where big scared the [censored] out of me.

.357 is my choice for finishing hogs. I've had a friend try to finish a hog with a 9mm but it took him two shots point blank.

If that is his carry gun it should give him something to think about....I wouldn't carry anything smaller than a .40S&W...45ACP or .357Mag are better IMHO......

Have finished off several wounded hogs in the brush up close with a 9mm. I have been carrying my M&P 40 but haven't had any close interactions yet.
