That's only if you can keep all of your shots within something the size of a paper plate. O0
  O0 BC nailed it. Being able to put the bullet where it needs to go is the #1 thing. 40 yard accurate pistol shots are more difficult than many folks realize.

Agreed, I always thought of myself to be a very good shot----well that was with a rifle. The first time I shot the M9 pistol I realized that I wasn't as good a marksman as I thought. It took allot of practice for me to qualify as an Expert on our pistol qualification test. I am no where near as good with a pistol as I am with a rifle, but I can more than hold my own! The thing with the pistol is that you have to practice ALLOT to get good with it!!!! Yes, a 40 yard shot with a pistol is ALLOT harder than most people realize.

40 yrds with a handgun is hard the longer the barreled guns will help with this giving you a longer sight radius.but practice practice is a must.
you can run but you will only leave a blood trail

Where can you hit the pie plate 100% of the time?  That's going to be your limit for an ethical shot on a deer.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

O0 Exactly, with the already low terminal velocity with the pistol round---you hav to make sure that the shot is well placed and dang near perfect!

Not to discourage  you from using your pistol, how about having buckshot or a slug along for you scattergun?

Or you could always use the infamous cutload. O0 Works well with break action shotguns. O0 I know a fella (guy I originally heard it from) who carries some cutloads in his pocket just in case. :roll:
