    Ummm...they figured they could pass it. Gun control is proof that the domino theory is still with us.

    I max out at 300 yds when hunting big game with my 30.06; it's as far as I feel I can place the bullet with extreme accuracy. I don't like the idea of letting an animal get away just to suffer and die somewhere. The 30.06 isn't the best long-range round anyway. 7mm magnum is probably one of the longest that comes in a package light enough that you can still sturmf around in the woods all day.

    308's are nice.
     
  4. Clint Eastwood use two 1851 Navy revolvers in .44. The Colt Walker was disigned for the Texas Rangers. The walker was so big and heavy that it was carried in a holster mounted on the sadle of there horses. For movie geeks like myself, you can see a good Colt Walker in the movie Lonesome Dove. Robert Dovall uses one to pistol wip a bartender. When you compair the two movies you will see that the Walker is much larger than the 1851 from Josie Wales.

    Back to the subject of this thread...

    My favorite gun that I use the most, Glock 22 .40cal. along with my AR-15. I used a SIG P220 for a long time but it malfunctioned to the point that I could not trust it any longer.

    I'm a pistol guy also. Just bought a Springfield XD 40 Cal. Sweet isn't the word for it, but tough as nails also.

    I do like the Kimber Pro-Carry II, but dang, their high.

    I never liked the Glock, it just didn’t look right. I went to my buddy to buy a 9mm and he talked me into a .40 Glock model 23. After shooting it, it was love at first “sight“. J

    M66-1 Smith & Wesson Combat Masterpiece. Pinned in barrel, recessed chambers, zero-zero tolerance tight. Secret Service boot grips. Shoots dead on with Silvertip 145gr magnums. And a very slick action!

    It is maybe the only handgun I will be burried with! I have lots of others, but I got this one many many years ago and I've never even considered tradeing it off.

    Mine is the Smith & Wesson 5906 but in the TSW, a 9mm that shoots good, feels good, looks good and has all the bells and whistles of a workhorse made tactical; she shore is purty.....
