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.
