Default I think I like lever guns

Had a Marlin 30-30 and sold it a while ago. I missed having a lever action so I scooped up a CT made Marlin 1894 Cowboy Limited in .44 Mag about a year ago. My dad ended up with it and recently I realized I needed another.

This brings us to last week. Found a Henry Big Boy in .44 Mag and had to grab it. Then today, my .357 Mag arrived and while at the shop decided I needed a .22. It never ends!

I'm a happy camper!

Those are cool. Have you found ammo for them to shoot yet?

I caught the lever fever too! Sounds cheesey but it works

I've been hitting any shop and Walmart I could. Luckily .44 Mag isn't something most people have so I've found a box here and there. Same thing with .38 Special. I don't have any .357 though.

If you are going to feed that family of lever guns, start reloading.

I am so jealous This is my first and only lever gun to date, a .22 GB. Like malaria, one skeeter is all it takes, lol.

I'm wondering if a .357 lever gun would be a big enough caliber for a close-in brush gun for deer? Say, 50-75 yards out?

I know in certain places they have pistol season. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the 357 is the smallest round you can hunt with a deer in pistol
