My issue with that is muzzle flip.

If you've shot any of the T/C pistols, you'll

know what I mean.

Just try holding a 45-70 rifle the way you'd hold a mare's leg,

and you'll get a similar recoil.

Hollywood played down how jumpy a mare's leg really is.

Dang, guys, chill.

This is one of our own here.

OP, I fired a T/C chambered in .308, the muzzle flip was

INSANE.

I can imagine a pistol caliber would be OK, like.357 or

even .44, but a real rifle caliber might break your wrist.

I imagine Hollywood's throwback was based on the

44-40, which was popular as a "common" cartridge in the

early American west, for rifle and pistol. It also was milder

than a .44 Mag.

I'd try a Mare's Laig variant before you travel with it,

it might just ruin your trip, if you don't.

well, I'd certainly get a feel for the gun(s) before i went hackin' it up. I've heard tell of people with hollowed out stocks on their pcc's that keep important things in there. Of course, having the gun, i could probably get anything i need with that ...
I guess I'll just revise and revamp my EDC items a bit more, I'm gonna make myself some slacks so my jeans don't sag. hm.... synthetic stocks look like a valid option but gee wizz, they are ugly as ... POLITICS ! eight pounds ain't a lot, anyways, next to most ar's and ak's.
