Allways love my #1s and walked into the local shop yesterday and there was an old red pad 1a in o6. I just couldnt let it sit there. Got to thinking when i got home with it that it has to be about at the top of the do anything versitle gun list. Short enough and light enough for brush and blind hunting. Long enough barrel to get decent ballistics and in 06 it can be loaded to kill about everthing from squirrels with cast to deer hunting out past 300 yards and loaded with premium 180s any animal in the US.
