Here is the situation. I live in idaho and love to snowmobile. I carry a backpack with winter survival gear. I don't have a lot of room inthe pack.
But wolf is in season pretty much all winter, and i cover a lot of wolf country in the winter. I haven't seen one, but you never know. So i want a pistol to keep in my pack, for when i can fill my wolf tag out riding. I would like to be able to reach out to about 40-50 yards and have enough to cleanly kill a wolf. What weapon should i go for.
right now i throw my xdm-.40 in the pack. But i don't think that gun would give me the reach. I am thinking a .44mag with a 4in barrel. I don't have room in my pack for a 6 in barrel. the xd fits good. So which weapon?
