Re: One VS Many
I'm somewhat of a hybrid. I shoot rifle competition, both rimfire and high power in the off season, so I end up shooting different rifles for different applications. For my LR hunting, I have a few LR hunting rigs that I work with in the off season, but generally stick with one during the hunting season. I have one rifle in particular that I have used for the last several seasons. I know this rifle like the back of my hand, it's exceptionally accurate, and I have had great success taking several head of game and coyotes out to 1100 yards. If I find I find one my other rifles that I'm working with offering an advantage over this rifle, I will try it for a hunting season. I'm the same way with my handguns and shotguns. I have many, but have used only a couple of each for over 35 years. I am a believer in familiarity with a firearm, but also believe that you can mentally imprint a particluar firearm with enough time, practice, and good record keeping in the case of loadwork. iMO.
