Although they do have their good points, I just prefer not to use one.

Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

After decades of hunting, I don't want any more "detachable" accoutrements in the field than is absolutely necessary.

Anything "detachable" is by definition eminently "losable," and I have a knack for losing just about anything!

No...one shot, one kill.

It is obvious there wll be as many preferences as there are individuals to voice them. Regardless of the choice or how long the debate, the important thing is we continue with our hunting/shooting interest and teach as many non-hunters/shooters as we can. Each comment I have read has its merits. As the sayings go, "if the shoe fits, wear it" and "to each his own". The real attribute and talent is behind the trigger. Good shooting all.

Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

I like a detachable magazine. It's probably not that important for long range but I still like the convenience. For a brush gun I definitly want a detachable magazine, but then I want a pump action not a bolt for that also. I have not seen much difference in the size of magazine wells from floorplate models to detachable mags and have seen a LOT more problems with dumping the shells out in a floorplate model than with losing a clip. As a matter of fact the only guns I have been around that have had problems with losing clips were either cheap pistols or marlin 22 magnums. The whole reason I didn't use a Remington or Winchester action on the gun I just had built was because I wanted a detachable magazine.

Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

After a really bad bullet failure 4 years ago, I think that I might prefer a belt fed magazine. Realistically, my box magazine was probably an advantage over detachable in that case, as I had to reload twice (single rounds) after emptying the gun. I did get the deer and he was a genuine trophy class for the area where I hunt. I managed 6 shots in the time this buck crossed my stand twice, hitting him 4 of the 6 with well placed shots. The bullets fragmented and did not penetrate, although I did knock him flat with 3 of the hits. Incident has made me a believer is solidly constructed bullets.

When more than one bullet might possibly be needed they protect the meplat and ogive where other methods may fail. Assumes state law requires separate storage of ammunition when not in firing position.
Rifles and shotguns should both be offered with the option of DM. Shooters should have the choice of feed options that meet there needs.
