I recently sold my .30-06 and kept my .270 Winchester. Instead of getting another .30-06 would it be a good idea to skip the .30-06and get a
.35 Whelan? I sold the 30-06 because I really didn't like the rifle, it wasn't the caliber.
Has anyone here ever attached a lanyard ring and a lanyard to their revolver? I am considering putting one on my Super Blackhawk for more security against dropping while in less than ideal conditions, like rough country or around water. Your thoughts are welcome.
Factory ammo come in boxes with the tip of the bullet down, is that the best way to store it?
Or should it be turned so the nose/bullet tip is up to avoid damage which could in theory
cause accuracy issues?
If you were to build a custom handgun, single action or double action and money was not an obstacle what would you build? This can be for hunting, personal defense or target shooting. Me, I think I would have built a .454 Casull using either a Ruger Redhawk (4"), or a Super Blackhawk (4 5/8")...
I have a 4" Model 29-3, very nice gun. Considering trading for a new 4" Redhawk. The Redhawk would be my fishing in bear country, hiking/camping gun. I like the Redhawk because heavy loads can be run through it, it is stainless steel and well, Ruger just builds a good gun. I already have a Super...
I haven't completely abandoned the rifle quite yet, but for most of my hunting I pick up one of my handguns. I have several calibers but I figure one of my .44 magnums will get it done. If I am in doubt I have a .454 Casull I can use instead. Any dedicated handgun hunters here?
mostly because I just didn't like the rifle. So now I am down to 2 rifles, a .270 and a .45-70
Between those two do you think I have the bases covered for lower 48 hunting? I am in no rush to
get another .30-06, not just now anyway. If I were I may just skip over the .30-06 and go to
I have never bought a rifle at Walmart, but have heard that the manufacturers build a "cheaper" gun expressly for Walmart, so they can sell at the prices they do. I have always bought my rifles from a gun shop, never a big box store. Any truth to the Walmart guns??
I've assembled what I think may be the perfect camping, hiking and back country setup. 6" L-frame in a Guide's Choice chest holster. 6" may be a bit long but it maximizes the potential of the .357 from a revolver. With the proper load it should handle anything I may encounter, guys with bad...
Considering using a 6" S&W L-Frame .357 for deer this season. Deer are thin skinned to begin with, what bullet would be better, hard cast, JHP or JSP.. Hard cast would most likely be a through and through with very little internal damage, same for JSP with maybe a little internal damage and the...
A lot of guys carry a backup handgun, especially hunting, or traveling in bear country. If you carry a backup handgun what do you tend to carry? What gun, what caliber and how do you carry it? I opt for a .44 magnum or a .454 Casull, both carried in a chest holster.
Mine is a Marlin 1895, it has a front sight hood. Did you guys take yours off, or leave it on? I think it looks better when it is on but I know it can get clogged with things, making it completely worthless, unless your gun is scoped. What did you do with yours??
Just sold my .30-06, kept the .270 and also have a .45-70. Been considering adding another .30-06 at some point, but after some reading and research I'm not sure I really "need" one. My research has led me to thinking the .270 will handle anything I will hunt in the lower 48, and if it won't...
While I certainly enjoy the look and feel of a high quality wood stock I am slowly switching over to composite stocks. While they may not be as good looking or traditional, I feel they are more durable and I am less apt to cry should it get scratched up. What is your preference??
