Re: If you could only have one gun...
buffalobob I can't speak for Bill Bailey but I will take a fresh plate of calf fries anytime! 'Specially when they're hot off the bbq grill and just a little bit runny [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] That's a poor mans caviar!!!
I would have to agree with those who said a 308 Winchester. It is about as versatile as any other caliber and it is quite managable to shoot. I could hunt muley's, elk, speed goats, blackies, coyotes and anything else in my part of the world with a 308 and good handloads. The fact that you can poke purty little holes in paper from a long ways measures in to my answer, too. Plus, like some one before me said, ammo is readily available just in case the s**t gets too thick and you don't have any handloads available.
