    @Physics Hunter….WV opened a special hunting season this month. Jan 12-15. Primitive weapons only,long and recurve bow, muzzle loader and pistol ( no scopes). Deer ,bear or turkeys.

    Think a 9 mm will bring down a deer?

    It should. Leather clothed humans and deer are about the same in toughness.

    I have seen that Virginia used to have a standard that a centerfire weapon had to deliver 350ftlb of energy to be legal.
    A quick check of 124gr regular 9mm delivers about 330ftlbs so would be under spec in the next state over.
    Thus at best it would be marginal.
    Scary thought relative to self protection eh?

    May have to go with the .45. Iíll have to make sure of the pistol requirements.The WV DNR sent it out in an email.
