    Guns that a Canadian geologist uses in remote work sites ie. no roads, hundreds of miles from towns or villages.

    All of my work rifles have QD rings and most of the time are run with only the irons as stopping shots will be short range, 25 yards or less. Slings are X-Cellerators that allow me to carry them backpack style, freeing up my hands when I need them.

    The CRF BRNO 602 .375 H&H generally stays in camp. I had the barrel cut down to 20" to make it easier to handle especially in aircraft and on boats. I had the front sight base re-installed an inch back from the new muzzle to make it easier to tape over the end of the barrel. I had to install a lower front sight to compensate for the cut barrel taper. And it shoots! With Federal 300 gr soft points at 2600 fps it grouped 1.2" dead on POA at 100 yards off the bench with the 100 yard leaf, with the express sights!!!!!! The set trigger helped.....

    In the winter I disassemble and degrease the bolt so it functions reliably in very cold temperatures. I like the BRNO Mausers for their reliable functioning and their big 5-6 round floorplate magazines. In stopping situations you may only have time for one or two well placed shots but for the great bears, more is better...........

    The Marlin 1895GS 45-70 with hard cast lead Buffalo Bore ammo gets carried on traverse when needed and the work allows it ie. weight, terrain etc. it's fitted with the following Wild West Guns parts: ghost ring sight with Williams Firesite, one piece Happy Trigger, one piece extractor, aluminum follower and flashlight mount.

    When a long gun can't be carried then the Ruger Super Redhawk .454 Casull with full house 300 grain soft points. If it's dry I carry it on a duty belt with two speedloaders in a Mernicle horsehide flap holster, crossdraw so that I can reach it with either hand. In wet conditions I carry it in the Uncle Mikes shoulder holster under my goretex jacket as it stays drier that way.

    My idea of reasonable compact handgun. Can't do 1 finger holds on those dinky pocket pistols people seem to like so much these days. Message_1621910063706.jpg

    If that was in reference to my picture, it's a Browning BLR Lightweight '81 in .308 with a Leupold FX-II 2.5X Ultralight Scope in Talley QD vertically split rings on Browning-branded Talley steel bases.

    I live 75 miles from Huskvarna, have owned five guns made there where the oldest is from 1860 and I've been to the museum :neener:

    What?! A museum? Well if I ever get there I'll call you.

    I got this from an old friend who was a logger in the northwest. I had never known Huskvarna made anything besides chain saws. And thats why he bought it I bet. He only used Husky chain saws. You don't see many mannlicher stocks around these parts.

    I think I got 7 or 8 Husky saws, can't abide any other junk.

    They made motorcycles (started the same year as H-D) and bicycles, sewing machines, plastic picnick ware, iron stoves, furniture, basically all sorts of manufacturing but they started out as a royal armoury in 1620

    And a random picture

    Do you have a favorite in that pile of shooters? Lol. Is that a RTF2 G19 or 23? I didn't know they did the RTF2 in the compacts, I would love to find one.

    1967 vintage S&W Model 10 Heavy Barrel had not been off the rack for some time, needed some admiration. We watched TV together for a while.
