      Since I visit faraway places, I'd search out a Ruger New Model Flat top in .44mag & have the BBL cut to 4-5/8". It'd do anything with proper loads. Frank

      I'd have to go with either a Ruger GP-100 or a S&W 686. Either with a 4" barrel and in .357 Magnum.

      Let me just say that I don't hunt deer and I don't mind being among the "few enthusiasts". I can make a quality DA revolver do things I can't make any automatic do for whatever reason. I'm trying to close the gap a bit by practicing with a 1911 but I still prefer the solid and butter-smooth action of an older Smith & Wesson. I still carry my S&W M15 as I can fire it quicker and more accurately than any automatic I've tried.

      If you meant to ask "Ruger pistol", I would choose a GP-100, with 6 inch bbl.
      If you meant ANY pistol, I would choose the revolver that I already have. I just need to find a 6 inch bbl (hunting), to go with the 2 1/2 incher that's already on it. Dan Wesson 714-2. (.357 mag, stainless steel)
      Ahh, the practicallity of the user changable bbl.

      Ruger Redhawk with a 4" BBL. The 44 mag can be loaded with 44 Spl for self defense and mag loads for hunting. Concealed carry would be a challenge. Fortunately we don't have to make this choice.

      A .357 with a 4" barrel i.e. Ruger GP100, Taurus Tracker, S&W 686, Colt King Cobra.

      If I had to choose a pistol I'd opt for either my Taurus PT92 or Ruger P95.

      rules

      staying w/your rules i would say the ruger security six, 4 in .357 mag, i had one a long time ago and surprisingly it had very little kick to it.sort of like a slow motion recoil.

      Whether I could have long guns or not would alter my decision. If I had long guns for hunting, then I'd choose my CCW (Ruger P97) as my choice. If I had no long guns, then it would be my single-six stainless 22/22Mag convertible.

      Plinking, Hunting, Home Protection.... Lets have fun...

      .460 S&W Magnum !!!!!!!

      Plinking:
      It'll shoot a 45 Long Colt, loaded way down... or you can plink away at 100+yds!

      Hunting:
      Whitetail deer, Mule Deer, Water Buffalo... lol

      Home Protection:
      I guess you can point it quicker than a shotgun... And if you miss, you can bludgeon them to death...

      My primary carry gun is my now my new KRH-444 4" Redhawk, except I think it must be some other model number as it's a 45 Colt.

      If I could only have one handgun that would be it.

      I carry it under an un-tucked shirt in a holster or in a front jean pocket, and it's no problem to conceal.

      If I have to wear a tucked in shirt I carry a 26 oz 4 inch S&W 325 revolver in 45 ACP, full moon clips, in an undershirt type garment with pockets sewed in that holds the gun under my arm. Or sometimes I tuck my 12 oz 357 mag S&W 360 in a pocket; though I only shoot 38 specials, 135 gr Gold Dots @ 1000 fps in that light gun.

      just read a magazine article on the newstand and it was either G&A or FMG
      they said they were surprised at their final decision and it was a revolver - 44Mag!!
