I have been W of the Mississippi, but never to shoot anything, much less PD's. I can think of no better rifle than a hyper-accurate Handi- single shot, with perhaps a bull barrel. Now what caliber? 243 is decent - but maybe overkill. 223 maybe? Speed, distance, accuracy, bullet performance, cost effective, ease of reloading, fine optics, rock steady rest, target rich environment, agreeable land owner, what could be more practical and fun than that? Do you keep score? Or just vaporize the little varmints? At what ranges? Maybe some day after conversion to every day is a weekend...a Yellowstone trip sounds like a deal maker! Any concern for travel with firearms through the midlands and South Dakota?
