Have always favored a wheel gun but just recently converted to a 460 Rowland. It basically gives you 44 mag energy out of a 10 round auto.
I spend a lot of time in the densest grizzly population in the lower 48. Bear spray is #1 but it is only effective 50% of the time with the wind.
It is not native. It has an anti blood coagulant agent in it. Makes good feed but must be very careful to not feed to long term pregnant cows or horses - they can flat out bleed to death internally. I do not know how it affects wildlife.
This is going to be worse - not better than before. Ex: Shoot a spike or cow in branch antlered bull area only, pack out the meat and unless some warden wants to spend the rest of his day going for a hike, you'll be sent on your way. Not only that, the vast majority of the game check stations...
Fire_9 is right on the money- and I've proven it over many many rifles. There are more barrels wore out from cleaning brushes then there are from shooting. I have a .308 I use for practice that I literally shoot hundreds of rounds through before the rifle tells me it's time for a cleaning...
Nothing better than grandkids. IF I'd known how special it was to have grandkids I'd have have bypassed the first stage.
I always figure it's my job to spoil them, it's their Mom and Dad's job to keep them straight.
Oh - and by the way, girls are just a little extra special.
