It has been a pleasant absence. ear

It may not be about how much wealth you have stored as much as it is about how much food do you have and can you keep the thieves from taking it?

The guy at least sticks to his convictions! lol. very strong opinion on a narrow subject matter. I can follow his logic but not have to agree.

Like the OP I am getting along in age and have no thought of engaging an enemy.
A couple of years back I was just looking for a "one gun" also. After research and ascessment of my available funds I settled on the Baikal in 12GA/.308. The gun has been very satisfactory in all respects. Accuracy is most acceptable in the .308 barrel and the 12 Gauge barrel comes with four screw in choke tubes to cover all situations/needs of hunting.
The scope is a Simmons Pro diamond in 1.5X5X32.Most acceptable.
That's my experience.

The more I listen,the more I hear....and vice versa.

45/70....lt's almost a religion.

If you have to take a second shot then you probably shouldn't have taken the first one.

Stan in SC, I'd like to try that Simmons Pro Diamond 1.5-5x32 scope on my 30-30 lever, which is my do-it-all centerfire rifle. How is the low light performance with that scope?

I still like the idea of a battery of at least three long guns. A rimfire 22lr; a centerfire rifle big enough for deer out to a couple hundred yards, and big hogs out to 100 yards or so; and some kind of multi-purpose shotgun.

Well, I've spent a LOT of time in the bush and depended on my "one gun" to feed me, it's a Krieghoff Semper,



I have to say it's worked out perfectly! I've taken everything from moose and blk bears on down to small game with it.

If I needed more shotgun, I just unlocked the Krieghoff insert bbl I keep in it and remove it..

After 30 years of using it, I already know it will work and it's worked EVERY TIME i've needed it, it's just amazing how reliable a well made firearm is! AND what a pleasure it has been to own and depend on it all these years...

BTW, it's accurate too!

If your life depends on it, one is not enough no matter if it is a gun or an engine on an airplane, nothing trumps redundancy. And, I have number three in my pocket right now. Larry

A gun is just like a parachute, if you ever really need one, nothing else will do.
