Re: If you could only have one gun...

i think i would agree with crow mag.......12ga. if you had to you could stock close enough to put a slug in any big game animal, as well as shooting your ducks, rabbits, quail, etc...etc....etc...
i think that having one gun would be very very cruel thing to do to someone! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

it really isn't better ballistically at LR.

<font color="purple"> Good point. I'm pulling a Jon Kerry and flip flopping. As soon as I can burn out the barrel on my new 300 RUM, I'll have Kirby re-pipe it with a Lilja .308 1:9 twist. IIRC, goodGrouper recommends VihtaVuori when you are in a hurry to burn thru a pipe [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]</font>

Dave King,
I second that!
One Rifle Only!!! World Wide? or Just USA? If it's just for USA usage, and being an active shooter, from paper punching to Elk hunting (just one rifle) the 308 Winch. is hard to beat! Ideal or not, it will kill everything in North America; and if you're a good shot you might just kill it before it kills you! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] 308 Winch. it is!

The 375HH would have to be the prime canidate for this one rifle catagory. It will handle anything you could ever want to hunt. The Remington I have is also very accurate. Just my thoughts. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: If you could only have one gun...

Well it would be a toss up between the .308 and the '06. Either will get-r-done for everything I would be able to hunt in this part of the ocuntry, and if I was only allowed the one, ell it would work just about anywhere else I would want to go as well.

Either can be loaded to shoot extreemly tight groups, and ammo can be found for both just about anywhere. Just in cse I happend to leave the green box sitting by the door again. LOL

A nice 20 gauge O/U with 3 inch chambers, a good finger shooting bow, light spinning rod, two caffiene free diet cokes, a potted meat sandwich and a snickers bar. Oh yes, a good log to sit on in the shade next to the river.
