Beware the (wo-)man who only owns one gun - (s)he might know how to use it....Thankful Otter":1tiyrcb3 said:Gil and Hawk
Thank you. I hope a couple of members here read and re-read both of your posts above in reference to rifle and caliber preference. I have in the past been crucified, ridiculed, and laughed at, for my 348 preference. At first I tried to be the better person and explain that I dont use a scope ( on the levers, but do on the H and H.s ), I dont shoot from any position that creates a problem for me with a lever, I dont shoot long distances, most of my "hunting" is accidental ( oh there is a nice moose and we are low on meat-bang ). The 348 with a wood leigh bullet will in my humble opinion do anything a 45/70 will do and the 7mmwsm (at least for me ) will do everything from wolf, lynx, caribou, and even moose and bear, if needed, plus it works on the trap line. ----So, if those are the only two I use, why should anyone care----but there are still some that claim I dont have the knowledge, that Gil, Dr Mike, Scotty, Earle, Hodgeman, Bear, Don, Cole, Fotis and a host of others to make that decision-----------and---------I always agree!!! But I dont have the time or even desire to "play" with a lot of rifles and loads and what continues to amaze me, is why I am not entitled to shoot, hunt, and enjoy my rifles, my way.
Nobody needs to respond to this post, I just wanted to get this off my chest and to once again try to tactfully explain my position to those who continue to fault my choice of rifle, caliber and knowledge.---and in some cases everything else I do! Thank you for letting me say all that and if you feel it is an offense post, please delete it Fortis, I will understand.
I own a few more, but most of the time use one.
