    I gotta say if all chips are on the table, if I had only one rifle at this point I would take my 444 marlin, its burly! I have never had any animal take a step after being hit!:eek:oooh:


    Its a bad boy.

    I guess my go to gun would be my Ruger 77 or Ruger #1 both in 30-06. They have taken everything from rabbits to elk with no problem. I'm sure every body will have a different choice.

    If I could only have one it would be a ruger 10/22. If times were real bad I could take anything around here with it I'm sure. From squirrels to deer. Like in the old days when people carried 30 caliber round ball muskets.

    I would have to agree with Porboy I have an old Ruger model 77 30/06
    I bought new in 1978. Nothing fancy just an old work horse.

    If I had to just have one it would be either my winchester mod 94 in 30-30 (grandpas gun), or my winchester mod 70 in 30-06 (also belonged to grandpa).

    I'll jump on the lever band wagon. If it was a one gun situation, I would like a 41 Magnum lever action. I love my pistol and out to 75yds any deer is mine but I got to shoot a friends lever action and it really brings out the best of the caliber. It is something I could take squirrels and rabbits with head shots and up to a black bear if needed.

    My ultimate meat and potatoes gun is a 1760-1800 era flintlock smoothbore in 28ga-.54 cal. It can be loaded with shot for small game and a patched round ball for large game.
    As long as you have powder your fine. You can make due with creek rock flints and use rocks as shot if you had too.
    Smoothbores are actually pretty accurate too if loaded right. My is right with my rifle up to 60 yards with a PRB.

    I use my lil trusty CZ tripple duece manlicker when in the woods on my climb'n stand. It's light, compact, and makes fer a great head and neck shooter. Hangs on my tree hooks real nicely. But when I head to a spot that's anywhere over 100 yards I take teh 7mmSTW. That 8mm case and 7mm bullet wildcat cartridge sure does reach out there!

    MAN LETS GO HUNT'N!!!
