I also have a full sized 20 gauge wingmaster and a 12 ga police magnum. They all run flawlessly. I saw a ...

Re: Contemplating a singleshot 35 Whelen

I used to listen to an outdoor show on WSB AM radio out of Atlanta on Saturday mornings. The were a show sponsor but the host used to sing the prases of those Bergera barrels. I've never shot one but listening to him sure did make them sound like something I'd like to try.

Re: Favorite combinations. (Rifle and handgun)

I think if you're walking in the woods with a handgun and a long gun the point is to have a long gun that can reach out as well as a handgun for up and close. I'm not sure the two interchange even though the calibers do. I'd rather carry a rifle caliber and take full advantage.
