I hadn't expected to go hunting with the new glock 40 yet so all i had was some sellior and bellot 180 gr. Fmj that i had been practicing with. The hog stepped out of the bushes at about 25yds turned and faced me. I aimed at the hogs right eye. The first shot hit just below the eye traveled through the face and neck and ended up in the lungs. The second shot hit the elbow as the hog turned and started to run, i was trying to get another one in him as he ran off. There was only 2 drops of blood on the trail because of how the first bullet entered. We found him by following kicked up dirt and leaves. He only traveled about 35 to 40 yds.

Very nice indeed and congratulations!  You did your friend a favor by wacking that big nasty beast and getting him off the property.  Turning to face you after stepping out from cover was a pretty aggressive move, he very well may have been sizing you up for a charge.  Very nice shot at 25 yards with a handgun.  After the natural adrenaline rush of being face to face with a big bruiser like that flashes through you, it's anything but easy to land a clean shot with a pistol.  I've seen otherwise good hunters armed with rifles fumble the shot at similar distances and situations.

This was my first big game animal with a pistol and I got to share the experience with my son, he was hunting with me when I shot the hog. He was very exited to because it was the first wild hog he has ever seen.
