Your a fool if you think you can hunt with a handgun. Only special circumstances allow open carry, hunting isn't one. If your JOB requires you to be in secluded wilderness situation you can apply for a ATC FOR PROTECTION, if you can prove a long gun isn't practical. You can't hunt with it. Period. Wow shotgun for fishing.....just when I thought you have spewed all you ignorance you pull this out. Your amazing......croc hunters only use a .22... what the hell you fishing for that you need a 12g? FYI I'm an avid sportsman, I've been in the bush since I was in diapers hunting and fishing. Itsme.
