Just bought my first Thompson Contender (wanted one for years)
Used - came with a Super 16 30-30 barrel & 4X Redfeild scope-
GREAT shooter & a hoot to shoot
Question is mt next barrel choice?
I do not hunt - But we have (getting worse) a coyote problem here- Since i quit hunting many years ago the only long gun i own is a 10-22. So i thought the Contender might fill the bill on the ocasional critter after my neighbors calves
Pasture next to my place-
First thought is a 223 but a couple freinds say 22 Hornet - Range will be out to 150 yrds max (all i feel i could hit & kill at) I'm a good shot but sure not great
Barrel length would be 14"
Any EXPERIENCED advice in this situation?
Oh yeah - Heres a pic
