I was buying my tags this last week and while waiting talked to another guy. He was maybe 25 tops, asked what he uses.. slugs from shotgun, said it's the only gun he has!

I didn't have the hart to say all the rifles I have pick of just for hunting purposes...

model 70 winchester featherweight in .270win
remington 760 gamemaster .30-06
remington 7400 carbine in .30-06
marlin .30-30 336 with peeps
a remington sporterized mosin nagan 7.62x54r

then I have a few surplise rifles and few shotguns, even an 870 with slug barrel..

I can't pass up a rifle if I can get a 'good' buy on it...
got me a little lady, the gun buying has come to an end, sigh

I can't get enough pre 64 Model 70 winchesters. Have pickup about a 75 of them over the last 30 year. This rifle is truly the riflemans rifle. Two bad they stop making them.

My buddy collects those. I don't see the point, if you can't get the whole collection - do you have all the rare ones, like the .458 winmag supergrade and the 7x57 and whatnot?

Rifles (especially hunting rifles) are one of my weaknesses, with special emphasis on varmint rigs. Anything "tactical" makes my eyes roll (how many of you clear houses for a living??). Then shotguns, knives, hunting gear, and pretty much anything dealing with gun dogs. My wife must think I am related to Imelda Marcos because every year I buy another pair of hunting boots.
Never try to educate someone who resists knowledge at all costs.
But what do I know?
