Hey Win73, what's your '73 chambered for?
I shot a deer with it a couple of years ago. It left a good blood trail for over 500 yards but then I lost the blood trail and could not find the deer. A friend of mine was helping me trail it. We were amazed that it could go as for as it did bleeding like it was.
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
