"Get a .44, that way when you wound the poor critter six ways to sunday and can't find the blood trail, you can use the remaining shells in the Marlin Camp carbine you will buy for the next season."
Ummm, someone correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think the "Camp Carbine" was ever made in a .44 mag. 9mm and .45acp yes, but never a .44 mag.
Marlin does make a lever gun or two in .44 mag, but that is not the same as the camp carbine.
Ruger makes both a lever gun (!) and an auto in .44mag with 4 round rotary mags.
And if anyone EVER makes an extended mag for the .44 mag ruger auto I will go out and buy it in a heartbeat.
