Default Sight For Handgun Hunting

Might have the chance to do some hunting in the shnf this year with my uncle. A lot of close range shots if any present themselves and handgun hunting has always seemed appealing. What red dot or holographic sight? Will a micro red dot be enough? Would be nice to use on my glock 19 for plinking. Hunting options are a 10mm and super redhawk.

That's on the want list for sure. Also looking at sub $250 options.

Unless your vision is impaired open sights have always worked very well for me when deer hunting with a revolver.

I have definitely thought about open sights as well. Always wanted to mess with a red dot seemed like a good excuse

Super RedHawk, open sights is my vote. Perfect for that thick east Texas national forest.

On the revo, irons or a 2-6 bushnell. On the 10, a slide mount dot would be a good choice.

I just ordered a Wiegand mount for my Super Blackhawk and a Vortex Venom reflex sight. For the price range it had the best reviews.
At 71, I need the help. Irons are not good for me at much farther than self defense ranges. I have a Delta Point on my G40 and it works well. Check out the Wiegand mount, I think I’m gonna like it.

I have a bushnell trs-25 that Prob had. 100+ rounds of 44 mag on a TC contender and it is on a Buck mark 22 now and still works and holds zero. Battery life is so-so but it has been worth the $100 I paid for it.
