PIG SHOOTER?

Walked up on a sow and a group of shoats at my first feeder last Thursday night. Missed a fairly long shot – for my suppressed .44 mag, at night, with my wife holding the light. In the confusion after the shot, several of the little ones ran straight at us, and I popped this one with my Taurus .45ACP at maybe 20 yards. The 230gr JHP hit her in the near shoulder, exited the bottom of the throat. Only had to throw away the one shoulder, the rest will be cooked pretty much whole, and it was good pistol practice!

Popped this shot with a night shot from my 1911 45ACP.
