Sounds like a case of "bosom envy", gunclod. You can probably find a training bra to wear under your shirt if it will make you feel better. Not a replacement for your manhood in the red velvet bag up on the shelf of the closet but TS. Now I know why you don't like monster revolvers - they're a phallic symbol to your small mind and you're jealous because your phallus is mini-derringer sized.
Gee;for general "toting" during my backpacking days(or deer trips in the NE rifle states)I tended to favor mid to large frame revolvers...usually .357's with "warm" handloads in the 158 grain range,but on a few occasions, a stainless Blackhawk in .45 LC(hot ,hardcast loads assembled by trusted friends).Lighter loads were also included in my alice pack&gear.I nver really had a problem with it...although the only deer I ever took with a handgun was with a .357 Bisley&Keth style SWC HP's.The deer did not go very far....mmmmmm,backstrap
The biggest thrill of my life was taking hogs with various handguns last October. If things hold up, am looking to taking a deer with my Ruger 45 Colt this season. Melvin doesn't know what he is missing.
