I was a long time fan of 10mm but never found a pistol I could shoot well enough so I ended up with a 9mm I shoot much better. Issue Iíve got now is I feel carrying a 9mm around doesnít give me much of a shot against a pig, assume 9mm rat shot isnít worth much? So convince me I donít need another pistol or make suggestions on what would make more sense?

I shot a pig last weekend with my 9mm. Not the best option, but it is a viable one.

9mm rat shot is more effective than you would think. Iíve killed quite a few rattlers with mine from 5-10 yards

Well my 9 holds 18 rounds. So thatís big factor compared to 8 in the 45.

I think you've come to the wrong place if you want to be talked out of "needing" another gun.

Get some good ammo, it will be fine.

A 9 year old killed a couple pigs last year at our lease. He emptied the magazine on them and told his dad he needed more roflmao

I would think FMJ would be more effective on a charging hog head shot or hog headshot in general for penetration purposes.

I would just get a taurus judge. Load half 45 LC and half with birdshot for snakes.

I've killed a pig with .22LR. Wasn't a spectacular kill, but it worked. I think 9mm with a good 124 would be way better than ratshot.

Couple years ago I shot a decent size Boar with my crossbow right at dark. Since light was fading fast I got out and trailed him right away. When I walked up on him he was in some dense underbrush and still very much alive. Only way out of there was the way I came in. When he got up I put 2 rounds of PDX1 from a 380 in him and it was lights out. If a 380 can do it I know a 9mm can.

I carry a 9mm on the lease. One mag rat shot one mag hollow point. Tried to kill a hog in a trap. Shot it 9 times in the head, kept walking. Finally it expired. Carry now FMJ instead of hollow points.

I would recommend a 1911 in 45 ACP or 10mm. They are both a pleasure to shoot and will certainly put the smack down on hogs.

According to the interwebs, all the pistol calibers perform the same nowadays...

Generally, my Ruger GP-100 .357 revolver goes with me because I shoot it far better than any other gun I own. This is especially true as the distance increases. More rounds is better, but I have not needed more than six for that purpose - yet.

I'm a big believer in carrying what you are very proficient with.
