No. I'm not one of those.Most of 'em would trade ... a date with a 20 yr old nymphomaniac for another 30-30 in their gun cabinet!
I only need one .30-30.
Levers, wheels, blades & sticks
Had a loud mouth the other week belittling the venerable 30-30. I got kinda upset and told him he had no idea what he was talking about. Saying it was good to 100m. Told him I got mine ranged in at 200m, scoped and would and has taken deer at that range no worries. He started to back down when challenged. Some people are so fast with their mouths that their brains (IF THEY HAVE ANY) can not keep up.
Long live the thirty thirty
and proud of it

If anyone wants to discuss such a trade, I just so happen to have a nice 336C chambered for the legendary .30-30 that might be availableOriginally Posted by tubaguy

I've got one centerfire hunting rifle (Not counting a couple of C&R military rifles). It's a 30/30.
I don't think I'll need another one.

One hunting rifle You better get cranking CB. You need a 35 Remington, 444, 45-70, 450, 44 mag, 357 mag, 30-06, 270, etc., etc., etc.
You can't have just one!!

338 MX...It's not your father's lever action!
I guess there are cartridges that kick harder or shoot flatter but none have taken more deer that the 30-30. It's been around over a hundred years and will be around longer than many introduced in the last decade. As for the 20yr old...make mine a 40 year old, there is no substitute for experience

Tubaguy, I won't be missing my wife. She's going with friend shopping so I'm going to get that 336cs.
