Re: One rifle, one pistol

I'd love to say my 1895 GS and Single six. But the truth is it'd be my Springfield Scout Squad and my Randall lefty 1911A1. I know the 7.62x51 and the .45 acp well. I know they work when it counts. But you forgot one shotgun. In that case my choice is a lefty Remington 870, 12 gauge of course. +1

Re: 1892 carbine vs short rifle

I like the short barreled carbines for lever guns but have both in .45 LC, a Henry carbine and a 20 inch 1892 Rossi. The Rossi is lighter so gets carried more both have red dots on them for evening and night problems.
