Pres, maybe we can arrange a weekend this season for me to get down and join you. Would like to meet you and am sure would enjoy "roughing it" in your deer camp.

I'll promise to be nice and not try to take your Ruggggeeerrr gun from you iffen ya wanna hunt with it. :-D

Will fire off an e-mail to ya in the next few days to see if we can work out a time that works for us both.

Bandit, I'm down Sackamenna way. Spent a year in Yooreeka back in the mid '70s. Them 1886s are just about the best levergun ever turned out. 45-90s are around, but a decent shooter can set 'ya back a couple grand or more. I have one of the later(1918) ones with nickle steel barrel for smokeless powder. The darned thing only weighs a little over 7 lbs, so recoil can hurt, especially with full house handloads. Saw a new(in box)Browning 71 over at the Reno show yesterday. Marked $500. I probably should've grabbed it, but I'd already bought a '93 Marlin 38-55. It ough'ta be a great little shooter. Twenty in. bbl and marked Special Smokeless Steel. This is my first Marlin levergun. It should be a blacktail buster.

I get my kicks from an 1886.

Sounds great, GB. Hope it works out. I'd be glad to host you for a little deer huntin' and it'll give me a chance to get some good directions and equipment needs for the next Annual Hoo-Haw over in MS. I don't have no throwin' hawk or knife, so I might need some advice.
