Currently, I use a .17 HMR rifle by Savage with a 3x9-40 scope. I can get shots between 75-125 yds regularly. I guess one con to that would be walking after what you just shot.
You will have to allow the varmint to get closer to you...Lot more challenging and will improve your handgun skills exponentially.

I find it much more enjoyable to hunt with a pistol...I always carry a high-caliber handgun, in case I ever piss off a wild hog or bear...I may have to climb a tree, but I can give them something back....So much easier than carrying a rifle in the woods....

I have not hunted big game with a pistol yet....

I have a 44mag that I'm thinking about scoping and try a White-tail Deer with....
