Best bang for the buck
Thompson Encore! Muzzle loader, centerfire rifle, or shotgun (slug or bird barrel) it does it all. I have a SS 280 Rem and a SS 50 cal muzzle loader barrel so far. Once you have the stock and action, it's about $300.00 per barrel and the scope would be a wash. I am looking at a 12 or 20 guage rifled slug barrel and/or a 44 Rem mag to round out my collection
Guns have only two enemies, rust and politicians!
Deer are amazing creatures....so please don't burn the sauteed onions and I'll pass on the steak sauce, thank you.
