Striking Fear Into The Hearts of Anti-Gunners Everywhere

This picture is worth a thousand words:

Killed by an 11-year old with a handgun.  Owww!  Not just any handgun either, but a .50 caliber handgun while his dad looked on.

If that isn’t enough, the hog is destined for the world record books.

    Yeah! Especially considering we have wild hogs here in NC. There is the next human predator.

    WOW!

    That’s a biggie! I feel a little sad for that it’s now removed from the breeding stock… hehe

    Allowing a boy to shoot on such a thing with a small handgun is bordering towards the irresponsible, even with high power backup.

    There’s a lot that could be said about this picture and the story that goes with it. Most states have a minimum age limit of 12 to go hunting for big game. However, a feral / wild pig could be considered a non-game animal too and could be hunted by anyone, anytime.

    A .50 caliber handgun is NOT small, it’s one of the largest caliber handguns in the world. That looks like a Freedom Arms or perhaps a Casul revolver he’s holding. The recoil would be massive, which makes the story hard to believe it was killed by a young boy. I wouldn’t shoot it and I’m an expert.

    What I’m wondering is what in blazes were the adults thinking?

    Follow up: The “wild hog” was, in fact, a formerly domestic pig (wrong head shape for wild hog), likely hand raised, definitely very well fed, and either penned-in or released on the ‘game preserve’ for what is known down in the Deep South as a ‘canned hunt’.

    I believe the former over the latter, as kid and his dad also apparently went hunting in their polo shirts and khaki shorts (see pictures).

    The handgun used is a S&W Model 500 .50cal revolver, and it supposedly took 16 shots to down the hog. Apparently, the hog waited around for the kid to reload….repeatedly. Hence my vote for penned over released.

    I don’t see any “baseball-sized chunks” ripped out by the shots from said 50 cal Smith. The only hole I can even see is right in the middle of the gut. Maybe that’s why it took hours to die?

    They had the had the rest of the humongous hog made into breakfast sausage…without, again apparently realizing what a rancid treat such a huge, old tough, stinking, gamy animal would be.

    NBC’s Today Show canceled their planned segment on the monster pig after flying boy and father to NYC, apparently they didn’t feel confident enough to run with the story.

    Great follow up. It says a lot. Sounds like it was simply a slaughter to me, in more ways then one.
