    .....wash, rinse, repeat!

    I think the gun might be a bit light for stomping loads, but options is what the .45-70 is about, for me anyways.

    Yes, it's a never ending vicious cyle,

    Yet then some days I'm so proud of my frugality I'll turn down a good deal just so I can say how CHEAP I am.

    The human mind never ceases to amaze me!

    I love shooting a 1-4x with an illuminated reticle. Both eyes open through the magnification range.

    You would probably like a scout rifle setup. If you get the chance, try one out

    Nice! A genuine thunder thumper. I've looked at them at the LGS, but I've accepted the fact that I'm a genuine wimp when it comes to recoil. A .22 Mag is pushing the envelope for me.

    Just ordered a .22LR bolt gun. If the Jedi mind tricks work, I'll be buying more bolt guns, so...
