Joe,
Have you checked through the various tips and techniques listed on Marauder's Gun Tuning site? LOTS of info there on the Marlin 1894 for the CAS crowd which puts their guns through SEVERE service.

Yep, ol' Ted is correct. He may be a little 'out there' for my taste in music, but I think he's got the lay of the land down pat. If we don't make the gun grabbers recognize that their "gun free zones" haven't been working, as the gun grabbers aren't in their "gun free zones" when they're needed!

I don't recall if the rules change for Indiana finally passed to allow them to use leveractions in such calibers. Your idea about the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association is a good one. Or other outdoor organizations. It may also help to show how other states allow their use.
