    When stationed at Laughlin, all I had was a 30-30. It was a bit surreal hunting deer on the slopes above the air strip just 500 yards away. There are some big deer out there!

    skfullen,

    RIGHT YOU ARE. - When I was stationed at FT Pickett, we had some MONSTER WT bucks on the post. - SMART TOO, as they would come into the main cantonment area & "trim the bushes" where they could NOT be hunted at all.
    (I counted over 50 points on one buck's head, the 2nd day of deer season.= Talk about a "NON-TYPICAL" rack.)

    NOTE: We had a more or less "tame" SOLID WHITE WT buck at Ft Pickett, who wore a RED COLLAR & a brass BELL, courtesy of VA TECH's biology department. = The word was out. = Shoot SNOWBALL & get court-martialed.

    yours, satx

    In all honesty, how could anyone call themselves a Texan, and not own a lever action in 30-30?

    I'd be mortified!

    In the past if you needed ammo you could always borrow some 30/30 from a neighbor. Today it's more likely you would be asking for 223/5.56 but if he was short or wasn't generous you could always change the request to 30/30 and he would probably have that..

    I propose a .30-30 range day.
