That would be a kick ass little brush gun. It's a shame they didn't offer iron sights on it.

You only really *Need* one or two Guns....... but we don't need to go focusing on that. Buy away!

1.). It seems like the 45-70 would cover the same application as the 450 BM, especially in a strong modern nontrapdoor rifle. You shoot your 45-70 well so that's a big factor there.

If hogs or bigger are your game perhaps a Ruger SRHK in 454 Casull would fill a niche in the armory.

2.). Flip side is one configeration gun in several calibers to fill specific power and ballistics needs...familiarity will always be there. Wallet will take a beating...

Cool rifle. It is very similar to Gunsite Scout rifle.

I can't help you with your questions, but I've always believed that if you want it, buy it. Life is too short to deny your wants and wishes. As long as you're not taking money from the household, I say go for it.

Just remember the Jim Smith Investment Plan. Put your money in the bank and you may make a little on it. Put your money into the purchase of a firearm, and you get to enjoy it, have fun and contemplate the meaning of life. After all of that and a few years, you can probably sell it for as much as you bought it for. Sometimes you can even make a little money.

I actually have the wife convinced in this and to be honest it has worked. I recently sold a bunch of guns for an average price of just less than $1300. I paid no more than $500 for each of them in the mid to late 90's.

Show me a savings account that can do that!

I hear Van Halen's song Jump playing in the background. So do as it says and jump off the ledge

Seems to me my 45-70 journey began with a set of dies you no longer needed.
I know I can count on my Hooligan friends to steer me in the right direction...

Just think if you'd bought a dozen SKS 15 or 20 years ago.
