    I never jumped on the "tacti-cool" band wagon. I'm perfectly
    happy to let that trend pass me by.
    I'm a blued steel and walnut guy all the way. Prefer leather
    to nylon slings.
    I have a cut down 44 magnum 1894 that I keep around for
    home defense.
    Is that tactical? I don't know...
    I don't begrudge anybody that likes what they like.
    We all have our deal that were into.
    I was a bolt-action fanatic at one time...so
    I guess things can change too.

    IMG_0938.JPG I used a Rossi so I would not feel too bad if I messed it up. It turned out about how I wanted.

    AC, Jeff Cooper and I knew one another. I would visit him in Arizona and was 'his man in Brazil' for a while. Leading to quotes in his Guns and Ammo column. You want pressure when shooting, try shooting with him! Then having him check out your sidearm! A sad loss for the the shooting world.

    What is considered too much or not necessary? Lights? Optics? Slings? Suppressors?

    I don't understand the argument. It's not like people are strapping umbrellas and TV remotes to their rifles.

    Can you have semiautomatics in England?

    I guess its a personal thing. none of my levers are adorned. but when you guns looks like a one man band. your getting carried away.

    I would never buy a stainless lever or put a scope on one. I'm traditional. I don't care what you do to your lever just don't try to make me like it. Hack away Bubbas! I have ARs and the like for that.
