Yep just don’t get it unless your wanting something for bear country.

I have several Model 92’s and 94.
Guy offered to sell me a mares leg I just didn’t see a legit use.

I always wanted one, but with the exception of a couple, just have to try and cram it the safe with the others I never use.

Not familiar with it. Does it shoot the .44 Remington Magnum cartridge? Or a bigger cartridge? If it is the .44 RM, why would that not be good for deer and hogs?

I have been owing Bo money since 1968 when he first opened South of the Courthouse in Butler. Get him to tell you about running a certain well-known Ga. politician out of his shop. ;-)). Saw Bo this morning.

I own a couple of Trappers , one .357 and a .45 Colt. They are very handy rifles. I had the opportunity to trade for a Ranch Hand , but decided against it.

Most folks haven't seen a NAPA or Ace Hardware stocked up like Barrows.
