Kentucky is beautiful country. I love it here. Never understood the dry counties myself, but many are going to at least moist counties now. I would love to make it out west one day to see some of that country to compare my beautiful commonwealth to.
The West has a beauty all it's own. Some people couldn't handle the desert in AZ, too brown, too hot or cold. Got the smallest wild pig you've ever seen & the road runner is real - - so is the coyote.

30-30 is a good defense against Indians, in movies, in Hollywood .... not real.

A really bad idea.
i think there are quite a few hollowpoints for the 30-30?

a 30-30 would be as devastating as most any rifle for HD. of course, in general rifles are not ideal for home D, imo.

i think the 125 grain fed. hollow points would be the money round for HD, imo.

I'll second the 30-30 accelerator round if you can find them. Used to use them on porkypines and they were impressive.and they would limit overpenetration
by a bunch compared to regular 30-30 ammo

A point no one has mentioned so far is that if you are surprised by an assailant (I know, I know, you should always be in a state of hair-trigger alertness and situational awareness, but dung occurs) a long gun is relatively easy to deflect or take away from you. A nice short-barreled revolver or pistol in some effective caliber is a lot harder to grab, can get the job of saving your bacon done with less motion than a lever rifle if more than one shot is required, and won't send a projectile quite as far after it goes through a wall. I loved my Marlin 336 in .30-30 and wish I hadn't traded it away, but it would never have been my choice for self defense.

If you're dealing with someone willing to grab a rifle barrel--rather than poop their big-boy pants and RUN--you are in a heap of trouble.

I, for one, have only so many firearms. In each safe, though, strewn around the house, I have a different HD firearm. In one of them I've got a 30-30 with 125gr Low Recoil SP's. I'd be okay with that if I was stuck in that room and had to use that one rather than my pistols, AR, or shotgun in the other rooms.

Yeah, that's kind of what I said. If someone is skilled or lucky enough to slip in when you're sleeping soundly, and you awake to find him at grabbing distance, you have a problem which it seems to me could be solved more quickly and safely with a handgun. I have a little rat terrier who would alert me if someone tried to get into my apartment, but not everyone has a furry burglar alarm.

In my old age I'm down to two handguns, a .22 rifle and a double-barreled shotgun sawed to twenty inch barrels. My head-of-the-bed, middle-of-the-night HD gun is a Smith Model 10, which I could deploy a hell of a lot faster than the shotgun or the Marlin.

But yankee mike mike victor. Just my opinion.

referring to california area...
also what would be suggested for a 30-30 type round thats suitable for self defense?
thank in advance
I did not read the entire thread so this may have been suggested already.
I use a 125 gr HP in the 30-30 for 'pest control', two legged and four legged!
