    I did it to my .44 1894 and don't regret it a bit! Shaved off a LOT of wood, and am very happy with the results!

    Thanks for the responses everyone, it's giving me lots to think about.

    I'm not too concerned with resale, you'd be amazed at how nice of a gun I could sell and still lose money on

    I spend a lot of time in the bush and while I'm not one of the "There's a bear behind every tree that wants to kill you!" kinda person, I do know two people who have been charged by Black Bears in the last few years, so a gun that's a little handier to carry would probably get brought along with me more often, and that is never a bad thing. I'm going to keep it stock for the rest of this hunting season (mid-December) and then if I do it, it'll be over the winter.

    Thanks all for your opinions,

    Cory

    Don't hunt with me, then.
    'Cause when I'm around, it's true.

    I'm a bear magnet, and get mock charged about 80% of the time.
    I don't know if it's because I'm too quiet, too ugly, or smell like donuts...

    A few years back, I got charged by three different bears in one day. I was a little more paranoid for a while. But now my wife is the crazy one. She freaks out when she sees me leave camp with nothing but a knife.
    "What if there's another bear?!"
    'Um... I'll offer it some tobacco?'
    Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your rusted masses yearning to live again,
    The wretched refuse of your humid closet.
    Send me the partless, broken-stocked,
    The Marlins in need of new life...

    One year I was doing some freelance biology work for a company and the supervisor (friend of the family) was concerned about bears and asked if I had bear spray. I told him "Yeah, I got some of that old lead bear spray". He had to think about it for a minute and then said, "No guns!"

    He was actually one of the guys who got charged by a bear later that summer. It came at him, he hit it with bear spray and it backed off. He started backing towards the truck and it came again. He ended up spraying it 4 times I think before he got safely to the truck. He still believes in it though...different strokes for different folks.

    I believe in bear spray. I just don't have any.


    My scariest encounter (in Florida, of all places) is a story I've told before.
    Short, short version:
    I parked at the edge of a water crossing, to get out and make sure it was still passable after a recent storm.
    I ended up between the locked passenger door of my truck, and mama bear about 10 feet away (~180 lb blackie), with a cub off to the side.
    She shifted her weight like she was about to charge or attack, so I snapped up the closest weapon-like object I could - a big, muddy stick - and threw it at her.
    She went one way. I went the other. The cub bumbled off after realizing that mama was gone.

    No underwear change was necessary, but I went home for the day.
