    Here is a pic of my pig hunt on Sunday. This boar probably weighed 275-300... thats a guess because we didn't weigh him.

    Glock 20sf, Lone Wolf barrel, 22# recoil spring, 200 XTP loaded to 1200fps with Longshot.

    Looks good, how did the bullet perform as far as penetration?

    I couldn't tell you. I didn't cut him open looking for the bullets. I can tell you that they did not penetrate fully... at least I don't think so. I didn't see any obvious exit holes, but then again I didn't go looking. Sorry I can't answer that for you. He was a big, thick, bruiser hog...

    How many yards did you shoot him at? Is that a 5 in barrel on that gun? How far can you hut a pig if you're rested on something?

    Thanks,
    Vince

    From about 5-7 yards. It is the stock length barrel. As for distance, I guess that depends on how good of a shot you are! I would say whatever distance you can reliably hit a paper plate at.

    Hit him with 2 while he was running, one behind his right shoulder and one to his gut... then a finisher behind his left ear when he was down.

    A tip of the hat to you, sir. Two hits on the run, nicely done! That is a nice hog. Great to know that the G20 and a hot 200gr XTP got the job done. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    I would love to toot my own horn on the shooting, however the guy I was with had flushed him out and I could hear the pig coming. I had the G20sf out of the holster, pointed at the trail where he was going to come out, and he ran by me only about 5 yards away... it was literally like hitting the broad side of a barn cause he was big!

    But thanks for the kind words!:wavey:
