Re: I've always had a weakness for Single Shots..

Sure glad you looked down the bore, great reminder for all of us to check the bore before firing. I too have always had a weakness for single shots, hunted most of my life with my Ruger #1 and muzzleloaders, all I need now is a Martini Henry and a Sharps carbine and I'll never look longingly at anot...

Re: Cowboy loads for selfdefence.

My first choice would be to pick up some type of expanding bullet, but all I had was .38 RNFP I wouldn't loose any sleep. The .38spl. when fired from a carbine will give you 38 plus P if not light .357 velocity, a carbine at any range is usually much easier to put good hits on target, and so many (n...

Great site if you were looking for information or something to do, NOT such a great site if you were on a budget or trying to save money for house type projects. Viewing fine guns can lead to less room in the safe and financial difficulties, not to mention feuds with the other half.
