Hunters/Gun Owners, SOUND OFF!!!!

Well I'm sitting here bored again (like usual) and got to thinking.....what does everyone have for an arsenal and what do you hunt? I've hunted upland game since I started hunting at 14. Saturday I'm going down to my uncle's in Gibbon to shoot my first deer. My collection is only this so far (I'm just 19): Winchester 1200 12 gauge, and a Mossberg 22LR 46B (made back around WWII). I'm thinking when I get the money I might add the Marlin .30-30 lever that I'm gonna shoot my deer with.

What about you?

-Jake

well Jake.. i am into guns/hunting and have a few.. and most know (by reading the BS forum on Monday) that i just bought a new Remington 700 SPS in camo/.270 caliber. I also have a Interarms .30-06, Remington 870 12 guage, New England 20 guage single-shot, Marlin .22 long rifle, and some other various guns that Obama wants to ban and wish not to list. I do have another .22 long rilfe but can't remember even what brand it is, haven't used it in 15 years. I'm looking to purchase a new handgun and just got my Nebraska Handgun Certificate (via the county Sheriffs office) I would also like to get a Marlin 30-30 as they can shoot the .35 caliber remingtons. looking at a Ruger single action .40 revolver as well. to complete the "Cowboy" theme. haha.

Why buy a modern lever action rifle when you can own the real thing, the first .35 Remington.

Remington Model 8 semi-auto recoil operated rifle, designed by John M. Browning.

If it was good enough for ex Texas Ranger Frank Hamer, who used a Model 8 on Bonnie & Clyde, it should be good enuff for anyone, that is if you don't mind the horrific recoil.

It looks like a Marlin, but it isn't a Marlin. The Stevens Model 425 was the first lever action rifle chambered in .35 Rem.

Well, let's see. A Ruger .243 and .270. A lever action 22-250. Remington 12 gauge pump, Beretta 9mm, and a browning .380. I'm hoping to get out here soon and get some bird hunting (pheasant) done. Haven't done any big game since I moved back to Nebraska in 1981. Not a big deer fan. Love Elk, though!

Oh, I'm looking to get a mini-14, for varmit hunting. My neighbor goes prairie dog hunting every year, so I'm looking to do that sometime.

I got a model 12 20 gauge that my grandpa gave me and a 870 remington 20 gauge. I had a .22 and a 30-6 until my dad wanted them back. I planned on "borrowing" them for a VERY long time, but he knows me better than that and took em back. O well, Im looking at a short barrel 12 gauge pump camo, maybe I can talk my wife into an "early" x-mas present.

I own a 9 mm pistol, Spanish made, A Yugoslavian SKS that I love to shoot, and my boy has a .22. My 9 mm is ok, I am not a very good shot with pistols but am improving. The Nebraska prison system uses Mini-14's for patrol, I personally loove that rifle. First time I really shot one was when we practiced for qualification. Nebraska Department of Corrections taught me how to shoot a rifle good, you would be surprised how well some of those techniques work.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe a bolt action of some type would be FAR more accurate than a Mini-14. To me all semi-auto's are "spray and pray". For varmits I'd rather have a bolt action.

Although Mini-14's, SKS's, and the like are fun to mess around with and can be heavily customized.

It would be just something to play with. the mini-14 is just a lot of fun to shoot!

Yea, if I had extra money laying around and found one at a good price it just might come home with me. However, neither of these will happen for awhile.....

I killed my first deer EVER this weekend. Would be a 4 by 4 but he had been fighting earlier this year apparently and part of the rack on the right side broke off. None the less, I was happy. Took him at about 40 yards with a .30/30....dropped where he stood.
