Rich, I thoroughly enjoy FTL and appreciate all you’ve done for the community. You’ve put together a marvelous set of resources for shooters and hunters, and are to be congratulated for that. I also love what SWAT has become under your leadership.

Having said that, let’s not encourage folks to go stunt-hunting or violate game laws. The .45-70 is ILLEGAL for DG in most of Southern Africa, regardless of its suitability for Cape Buffalo (****** off ele are a different question). Will it kill buff? Of course. Is a .45-70 a cool tool when tricked out? Absolutely. Will it flat stomp on anything in NA? You betcha! Is it a good idea for a new Africa hunter to consider one as his DG rifle? Let’s not kid ourselves.
