Picked up a nice mare's leg in .357 recently. Fun, fun, fun! Even got a leg holster for it!

Will it take the place of my Golden Boy .22? No.
Will it take the place of my Marlin 336? No.
Is it my new favorite plinker?....perhaps!

The gun just felt so good in my hands that I had to take it home. Okay, .44 mag with heavy loads . . . I can justify a rifle for that.

Then a couple of weeks ago I saw a stainless steel .357 Ruger 77/357 in my lgs for about $400.00 (used). I STILL don't know what the advantage of a rifle in .357 would be over a "real" rifle caliber, but I tell you, that little Ruger sure was a nice gun, and I was tempted. If I'd been more flush that day . . . . sigh, but the pockets were a little flat and I passed. Sure was a good feelin' gun though.
A lever action .45 sounds appropriate to me

I've always thought an 1892 style, 16 inch carbine in .454 Casull and/or .475 Linebaugh would be neat.

On the other end, an 1892 in .327 Federal would be a nice follow on to the old .32-20.

My brother just picked a mare's leg in .45 LC and he loves his!

I bought my Rossi lever rifle model in .357 specifically for cowboy action shooting. The tube on the rifle model holds 10 .357.

Very accurate rifle! I am well pleased!!!

I don't have a chrono so don't have any FPS readings.

I did get this shortly after my last pickup. Winchester 1892 16" Trapper .357

It is awesome!

I've never seen a picture of a high-tech black gun next to a lever. Interesting. Somehow, the lever action looks more.......serious.

It's funny as most people are surprised that I like older "cowboy" style firearms. I'm pretty young (29) and have since my early 20s. I'm buying 3 single action revolvers today. Felt my collection of lever guns was missing something.
