Ok guys I'm sure this topic has been beat to death but here goes anyway. I am going hog hunting in either Arkansas or Tenessee. My understanding is it will not be uncommon to shoot one in the 2-300 pound range. I plan on taking a pig with a .30-06 rifle. My question is do I need a handgun for close range back up? If so what would you recommend? The biggest gun I own is a 1911 in .45 acp. I am not going to take a pig with a handgun unless it is to save my butt. I also really don't want to invest a lot into something I probably won't shoot unless I really need to. Sorry for being long winded I'm just not sure what to do. Thanks in advance guys.
