I would consider looking into the black widow tab....that's what I use and up here we don't have to worry about two legged varmints as much but we've got some critters bigger than volkswagons. I carry a .44 mag. New Model Super Blackhawk and my tab is easy enough to flip to the back side of my hand to have quick access to my pistol. In my opinion the black widow tabs are the best all around tabs there are and the versatility is priceless in the field. Honestly though....don't buy everything people say works because it doesn't always prove true in the field. Do your homework and try your best not to have to end the stalk with a pistol!!! Good luck

Probably to late to respond to this, but If I leave the house to hunt a animal that bits. My wife insist on me taking my pistol. I am already pretty slow as is with a cane , all. I use a Caff hair tipped glove (my favorite one). It fits through the trigger guard of my 1911 perfectly. I shoot with it on a lot. If using glove or tab makes sure you can work the firearm ,and shoot accurately.

Ps. If your worried about killing animal quickly then that means you need to practice more.
Best of luck

Sorry for the hiatus and necro-post, but life's been busy.

Normally I'd let sleeping threads lie, BUT I figured i should post my solution in case someone else is wondering "how can I bow hunt AND still be able to draw my side arm if I need it?"

The solution I found for me was to use an AEE Cavelier tab, with the spacer on, and not use the finge loop. If I need to, I can drop it, but I have noticed zero loss of performance so far, and I can wear light weight gloves, with it, which will help with the whole hyperthermia prevention thing.

I use the Damascus glove and can draw and fire my Smith n Wesson just fine I don't know why somebody would say a pistol wouldn't be effective against dangerous game ? Not to turn this into a topic about the lethality of hand guns but I promise any magnum sized round will transfer more kinetic energy in a o **** face to face him or me encounter
