Right now, I just have Have one, an old Remington Model 6, from the Early 80's. But, I'm shopping for another one. Instead of getting another caliber, I'm thinking that I would like to try something newer, with a synthetic stock.
I was considering a 243 or 30/06, but the 270 seems to cover my needs, other than my Remington Turkey gun. The 870 works for small game and predator's. With slugs, it would also work for deer and hogs. I could get by with just the "one gun."
I guess I'd have to keep my Valmet Mod 412S which is an O/U, 12ga over .308. Sounds like also keeping the double 12ga barrels would be cheating, so just the one set of barrels 12ga over .308 and topped with a QD mount holding a Weaver V3. Small game, turkeys and waterfowl with the 12ga., and deer and other big game with the 12ga/slugs and .308.
The more I think about it the more I like this idea. It would have limits for defense but compromises must be made in any event. I may have to buy one of these over and under things now just to have ICE.
What is that contraption? Where can I get one? How much? 16 gauge, what are the other rounds?
That "contraption" is a Krieghoff Semper drilling, that i bought for $350.00 25 years ago, i have rebuilt it to the gun i always dreamed of owning since i bought it.
I've been offered different ones recently, from $500.00 for a fixer upper, to $1,500.00 for a pretty nice scoped model. That's the price for a good shooter, not a show piece that the owner thinks is solid gold. They are around, you just have to do some looking for one that isn't priced out of this world.
It's 16-16 x 8x57jrs... The Krieghoff "slide in insert bbl." is chambered 22 Win. mag., i also have a second slide in insert bbl that is chambered 22lr. The slide in bbls shoot about like a decent bolt action 22, and ALWAYS go back to sighted in, when it's slid in. The 8mm bbl shoots a 200 Nosler Partition @ 2,550fps and is very accurate.
Unlike a cheapo combo gun, this drilling is light, sleek and all the bbls shoot to the sights. Cheapo's, most times do not shoot the both bbls to the sights, and i find that unacceptable.
I've carried it many a mile on hunts, some of them lasting weeks. It has to be the best buy and the most useful firearm i've ever owned!
Have you ever looked all over the house and garage for a piece of hunting equipment or an article of clothing? I sure have... or at least I used to. I found that storing my hunting gear in large containers that are labeled not only saves me time looking but also saves space. I used to have my gear all over the house, taking up space that I needed for other things.
Here's what I do now. I went out and bought some large plastic tubs and everything goes in them. I...
