    Is that a pistol? Angle makes it look longer. 
    It is, but especially with the suppressor it looks longer. Barrel + can is right around 16"

    Obviously NOT chambered in .270  :D

    Nope...that is an M163...a radar controlled 20mm Vulcan cannon mounted on a M113 Armored Personnel Carrier...the first application of the Vulcan in an anti-aircraft role....

    Sooo, not deer and elk, Canadian Honkers?

    As a side note, one of the guys that used to deer hunt with us before he passed away was doing his weekend in the Guards in the 60's and he was on the turret of a tank with his .50 on the live fire range, they got in some trouble :D , several gunners did, but not much in hindsight, made him giggle every time he told the story

    You could pretty much shoot either...the secret is in the barrel clamp...ground to air throws a tall oval shot pattern...the ground to ground clamp throws a flat oval pattern....

    Got in some trouble shooting at a flock of honkers, sorry, only one cup of coffee in me when I typed this this AM

    A former Tanker friend of mine had fun at "fort puke" (Ft Polk, LA) He was the gunner on an Abrams and they were on extended maneuvers even had some "POWs" they'd captured earlier in the day.

    After having fresh grilled venison instead of MREs for dinner, the "POWs" didn't want to go back to their unit

    The thermals on the coax 50 show deer quite nicely, according to him

    Did some scope swapping.
    The anschutz received the vintage Redfield 4x.
    The Mauser in  35 Whelen got the leupold 3x9.
    The Mauser is the only gun I ever considered using a black sling on.

    That Redfield has been given a worthy home indeed. 

    Moose and elk and bear and snow belong in the same frame with that Mauser.

    Couple of S&W model 1000 shotguns (12 and 20) I recently put up for sale. Thinning the long gun herd...

    Thanks Ron
    The Whelen has had things going its way lately.
    Today I was able to score some factory fodder for it.
    Those TBBC ones I'm very happy to have.

    How about this a NIB Lyman sight for a savage 99 my friends dad gave me Christmas Day after dinner at their place. He said he has it for close to 25 years and knew that someday he would find the guy who needed it. It’s on my 1946 300sav. 

    Aim higher, or get a bigger gun.

    Oh he and I have already been talking about a Range day and I’ll take him around to some of my haunts where I find some of the stuff I run across.  😉

    That sight in the original box is great. 

    Im guessing that 35 Whelen ammo can be a valued commodity?
