Sheee's ::)

I really must be crazy...I went and did it...My wife said to go get it...She said since my 1 270 is going to become a 338 Elk rifle before next season..she figured what the heck...It won't hurt to hold onto for a little while.....she said the gun safe was too empty anyway...and I wouldn't be happy with out a few rifles...We'll see...I got 5 months before I have to go full time into training the pups...and 4 months of solid overtime to look forward too starting next week...so.....I won't have much time to play with it a-lot...I guess I'm just fool hardy...or a sucker for these little rifles... :-[.....Now...all I have to do is to loose the 444 barrel & get a BC 45-70 barrel to be trimmed down...so...I'm all set for any thing out west when I get to go......If the 270 works out...I'll keep it...if it don't...some one here will have a crack at it...I was told it is a Davidson Special...and there weren't that many produced as a 24" fluted 270 Winchester...

;D It's hard cleaning out the closet and harder keeping it that empty. Thats a great looking pair and the flutes look real nice from the pics.
I look forward to hearing how she does for you. Ya might end up liking that 444 though, seems they are real good shooters from all the reports I have read, and I know Tim really likes his.
Good shooting to ya buddy.

I knew you could not stay away from these rifles for long. Even if you do not have time to shoot it, just knowing it is in the safe is comforting. ;D

I still had 1 left in the safe...and wasn't going to get rid of all of them...I just had to let the majority of them.. go to good homes where they would be used & cared for as I had done with them...so that I could get my Gordon Setters.....and I know they have...My last remaining Handi will be heading out to Oregunsmithing this week to become a 338 Wildcat chambering of something...so I will have a heavy flat shooting caliber for Elk this coming season or next...and I don't look for it back till late July or August Hopefully this combo I picked up should work out for the rest of what I was wanting..Also I still have a any-deer tag in my pocket and would like to fill it before the end of the 2nd gun season time permitting...I want a couple of Hams made with this one to arrive February or March...and if I do get back out for it...I will need more than my 45-70 can provide for a 300-500 yard shot that I most likely will have...as good as it is...wind is it's enemy...and where I might be at...it is always cold & windy on the second season...Getting the time is my problem...

Very nice find there Mac.
Getting the time is my problem...
You're not the only one with that problem. Seems like a lot of people are having to work longer hours these days. I have been working 60+ hours a week for the past 3 or 4 years. It doesnt leave much time for loading and shooting. :(
