    Who here shoots or hunts with a specialty pistol/hand-rifle/pifle/hand cannon?

    I have killed a few deer with scoped revolvers. I own one specialty pistol, it is a stainless/synthetic Encore in .243. It wears a Bushnell Elite 2-6. It really likes 90gr accubonds. Unfortunately, it also repels deer. I have carried it many times and deer disappear! Carried it 2 days...

    I'm thinkin I need a 338

    I've got a wanting for a .338 of some type. I owned a Weatherby Vanguard SUB-MOA in .338 win mag and it was a great rifle. Killed some deer with it. Was very accurate. Got bored with it and sent it down the road. Fast forward to now, I have the itch for another .338 of some kind...

    28 gauge

    Sounds like a great shotgun! Along with grouse, woodcock, doves, etc.., I have found my 28 to be great on rabbits as well. Fiocchi #5 golden pheasant loads work great

    Not Feeling It

    My "hunting" so far (hampered by a boot on my right foot) is a whole lot of dry firing in the back yard. Today was the .45/70. Lotsa sparrows and squirrels. Wife just shakes her head and is thankful we have a privacy fence

    Not Feeling It

    just the opposite for me... I have had to wear a walking boot on my right foot for 8 weeks while a tendon heals. Haven't been able to do anything so this year I am itching to get out hunting! Haven't been able to shoot sporting clays, clear shooting lanes, etc...

    257 Weatherby

    Pretty much whats already been said. Bought a Wby Accuguard a couple years ago in .257. It absolutely loves the 100gr TTSX Wby factory load. Shoots little tiny groups and no recoil. Absolutely plants deer. FYI- Quite the flash when shooting a raccoon at 3am

    Well, an update on the 7600... A guy I work with is selling it for his brother who is going thru a divorce. Told me that it is in "excellent" condition. I am here to tell you that if I chained it to my pickup and drove from Michigan to Houston TX it wouldn't change the condition. Pretty sure...
