Decided to make a poll to see what type of firearms are going to go out this hunting season with the members, might be a interesting satistic to see what most will be carrying in the bush with them. Smile

So post now and have fun!

I can imagine you standing out in a field staring at a spot where you're sure a gopher used to be because all that's there now is this fine red mist... Very Happy Very Happy

45/70 Guide Gun.
I guess that when I take my 300WinMag to the range tomorrow, I will have to tell it that it is now a "medium bore" from now on. wtf

Sorry but in my head I got the RIFLE calibers catagorized like this:

Small Bore = Smaller then 270caliber
Medium Bore = between 270-350 calibers
Large Bore = above 350
Really Darn Big Bore = 50 caliber and above.

Then seperate "Intermediate" from "Standard" from "Magnium" rounds.

my dad was asking me about the 45 70s and I know nothing about them
I went to the store today looking at savage 308 really wanting to buy one soon. actually want to buy two.

I just moved out to where bears and moose along with deer and loads and loads of turkeys walking through my property.
funny thing I was taking the dogs out there so I can move my things easier and we came around a turn and there were 3 turkeys in the road. had to slow down and let them walk across to the the other side. I thought why do people need flippin camo when they are like this?
strolling over not running till I blew the horn then they ran. 3 hens.
thought they could see red.
I have a big dodge red truck and they werent afraid. weird huh

so any info on the 45 70 to help dad with would be appreciated.
be safe
