Which gun?

#1 Post by jnyork » Sat Jun 01, 2019 11:31 am

What gun should I use to harvest a yellow emu?

Will a 6.5 Creedmore overpenetrate?

Will a .22 rimfire work if I get a headshot?

Is a 1911 .45 enough gun if I empty the mag in the ***? (very tempting )

Dont want to use a 12 gauge and get pellets all in the meat.

Suggestions welcome, but hurry, I am about to unload the next time that commercial comes on, sick and tired of it, mute button is not sufficient. :lol:

An Emu has very large talons....I suggest a 45/70 with 405gr Jacketed Flat Point bullets.

I know how you feel about that STUPID commercial. How about a Ruger .45 Colt with Keith loads, that should do nicely. And no black powder smoke to annoy the wife.

Trust me a .22 Stinger is all ya need! And that was years ago when TV's were much tougher than they are today!

If I had L.M. insurance I'd cancel the policy just because of their stupid commercials!

You made my day! I thought I was the only one who detested that commercial!
I was going to call the local agent and give him a, "cold day in hell", that I would buy your insurance as long as
that commercial is running.

Blaine, that is disgusting. Besides, I thought we were not supposed to talk about sex on this forum.
