    Colt (see website) makes their classic gun in .357 -- probably hard to get -- they always seem
    to be back-ordered. Uberti in Italy makes quality Colt replicas with the Colt-like "4-click"

    You also mention range shooting -- do compare the cost of 308 vs 270 ammo -- you can put a lot
    more 308 down range for the same cost. And quality ammo in either caliber will handle the kind
    of hunting...

    lots of used guns around if someone will help you screen for quality -- pumps and over/unders
    especially since less likely to be worn out then a semi-auto. O/U guns also don't throw the
    shells for you...

    I've tried lots of guns and lots of calibers -- at my age, disposition and skill level, the 9mm

  • Posted in thread: Trap/Skeet/Sporting clay advise on 04-01-2011 at 03:20 AM
    I'd be inclined to stick with 12g -- even 7/8oz loads will work for skeet and 16yard trap --
    almost recoil free.I'd say you can be happy with any of these fine o/u guns in the $2-3k price

    Now that I'm over 39 (well, a lot over), I now need correction for both reading and distance.

    It sounds like you are interested in something more than the always versatile .22LR... 1. Think
    about costs -- 9mm for semi-autos and 38Spec are a lot cheaper than most other rounds. (Note
    that you ca...
