Re: Semi auto for bears

The Dupos are pretty nasty. I've shot a hog with one and it looked like a baseball blew out of the other side of them. (250-ish hog) I wish I had a picture of it. Actually it kinda looked more like an alien came out of its side. As far as penetration goes, I cant speak for that since the hog was muc...

Re: Bear and feral pigs whilst running

I think the bell is a good idea for mommas with cubs....which are imo the most dangerous. I have not seen the study, and curious how they managed to accomplish the study without self contamination. The way I would do it is to have a couple UAVs up looking for bears, and once they spotted one, just ...

Re: Rossi Trifecta

My wife bought a trifecta a few years ago. The.22lr was plenty accurate. The .243 was about 2 MOA with a scope. I'm positive that could be improved drastically with some trigger work. Both had fiber optic sights. The scope stays attached to the barrel so you dont have to rezero when you switch barre...

Re: most useful caliber for lever action in my area

Here in AZ i wanted a "camp gun" with more oomph than my AR or .357 mag Security Six. I dont like the innaccuracy of my 12ga shotty. I finally settled on the Marlin 336Y. 33" (about the same as the AR) but is essentially a 16" 30-30. With a slightly shorter LOP. It is a hair over 6lbs and will drop ...

Re: Recover?

I might just pick one up. Right now I carry a stainless 1911 with wood grips when hiking/camping. I think pulling off the wood grips and using these when I go out would help keep the wood grips looking good and provide a rail for a light when I'm checking out that "bump in the night" around camp.

Hand loading really makes the 10mm get up there. If you look at Buffalo Bore, they are pretty hot. When I was in TX, never had a problem with hogs using a .45ACP with the 230 buffalo bore. I still carry the .45 in N AZ and there are tons of bears around there. Never had to shoot one as they usually ...

If he hasn't picked yet: I have the Tikka T3 in .270. It is a great, GREAT rifle. I am an average shot, but I have confidence that I'll hit a 12"x12" plate at 500 yards. Budget rifle? Eh, marginally. Mine was around $550 6 years ago without a scope...that would put you around $1k with a good scope. ...

Re: Cost of .22 in your area

I went to an indoor gun range last week and they had .22 for $6 for 50 (Federal). But they would only sell to kids. Seriously. Adults had to buy it but they had to have a kid with them.

I didn't have a problem with that at all. Good job for a family place to stick to the policy too.
