    Ran into one last night. Very distinctive ring.

    .444 Marlin, or 45-70

    Marlin 1895GS with JM stamp launching a 405gr WFNGC at 1750-1800fps. It will take anything in North America with authority......or realign your spine. Either way.

    44 Mag or 45lc for hunting

    45 colt +P in a Ruger Bisley with heavy lead. My gun really likes the LBT style 360gr GC. I'm able to launch it with a healthy dose of 296 to 1150fps. That'll put a hurtin' on anything that needs handgun hunting by me. Any more and I need a good rifle.

    If I may introduce myself.......

    Welcome aboard. One thing though, you need to get out and shoot more. You rolled that ammo 8 years ago. LOL!

    Why no smokeless muzzleloaders?

    Am not advocating this, but I have known individuals to use TrailBoss powder in a smoke pole. Not sure on charging or process, but just throwing it out there.

    Another Taurus quality thread.

    My model 66 7 shot 357 was very accurate, but when launching heavies at max, it started to be a little "loose". It was still functional. I traded it off. It wasnt a negative experience, but a GP100 or 686 it aint. (Yes I know its a copy of the Smith 66, but the GP and 686 I can compare it to...

    Older Marlin 60

    I've got a Glenfield Model 60 with the "squirrel stock". It's a fun plinker and accurate enough for that duty. I'm sure with a scope, it would live up to its reputation of a good shooter.

    Cleaning the bolt of Bolt Action Rifles

    I don't know about the Abolt in particular, but I do like my ultrasonic cleaner followed by compressed air and gun oil. Eds Red is awesome in the USC.

    Taurus - The View? Anyone see this?

    Whether you like Taurus or not, I applaude them for their continued innovation. I wonder his long before Smith steals the idea.....

    Thoughts on the Ruger American Centerfire. Experiences please.

    I'd appreciate the info too. I've read the online reviews and some here. Wouldn't mind picking up an inexpensive 7mm-08 or 223 just to have around.

    Wood or Synthetic Pick your poison

    Depends on what I want. A beater deer rifle- synthetic A "classic" deer rifle- wood My preference for bench- heavy Laminate Lightweight Hunter- Kevlar/Fiberglass. I love the look of black laminate and Stainless. Looking for a nice 7mm-08 currently. Ruger makes one, but compact only.

    best hunting rifle to use open sights on?

    A lever action first came to mind, but then just about every rifle has been made with irons at one time or another. AR-15, Mini 14 or 30, mainstream bolt guns. What is your budget and secondary purposes? That would help guide you better. What caliber range are you loking at, small, medium...
  13. O

    New what calibers do you carry the most.

    Typically 9mm in summer, 40 in cooler weather. 10mm or 41mag while in the field depending on if I want to carry a revolover or semiauto.

    How legit are places like

    I've purchased on gunbroker tons of times. I make sure they have 1000+ sales with A+ ratings and take a credit card for payment. That takes 'most' of the risk out of it. I dont purchase from a non FFL or someone that is 'new' to gunbroker or if there is anythign that makes the hair on my neck...

    would you trade .22lr for a winchester 9422?

    You mean you havent traded yet?! Go back and get it!!! Theyre not making any more 9422s (like the did in the "ole" days)

    Anybody have one of these yet? Ruger SRH 5" Barrel

    It's like a barrel with a barrel extension. I don't like it but can appreciate it. They should take the barrel and either make it look like one continuous piece like a full underlug or have lines like a RedHawk.

    Ruger Blackhawk

    JMR40 does make a good point. The aluminum does have a finish on it that does like to flake off and shows wear more readily than steel. The problem is finding a factory all blued all steel gun is difficult. My 41 mag flattop is all steel blued and you can feel the extra heft. I prefer to put...
