    I'm an old codger and I'll be darned if I'm going to pay for air when I can still drive a bicycle pump...;):D

    And yes, I do keep one in my trunk...

    I'm impressed if you can pump up a car tire up with a bicycle air pump.

    And I'd be lost forever without my TomTom GPS.

    Men don't like the GPS devices because they always think they know a secret shortcut, or better way to get there. So the thing just keeps saying RECALCULATING.....RECALCULATING.....RECALCULATING...the whole way. My Dad is a perfect example of this...And eventually he will get close enough to his destination , that it sync's up with whatever way he went....so then he thinks he was right........:D:D:D:D:D:D.

    Bloomfield Ky! No offense but the state of In won't let me hunt with my high power long range centerfire rifles, and the tiny fact that my 4th ex wife is from In. That kills it for ME ever moving to In!

    I am getting ready for bed, so I checked... :eek: Yep, male, thought I remembered that right... :cool::D

    I use GPS a lot if I'm going outside my familiar area and sometimes even in the area.

    I use a rifled 12ga and feel confident in the woods. There's no real long shots where I know it'd be an instant kill and I couldn't call it in. I've considered a lever 44 mag since I can't find one of those old semi auto ruger 44 mags I'm dying to find. The deer laws here do suck but I believe they're trying to change them. If no one has heard of it, look up the 358 Hoosier. It is specifically designed to b the best legal deer cartridge in Indiana.

    45 Raptor is also deer legal here. Vast overkill, but legal. Just need to put 5 rds mags in the AR10... ;)

    Austin I've used my 44mag revolver for years here and ohio both. Never felt undergunned. I'd love to have a lever gun to match my uberti cattleman. Color case hardened and brass please. Its on my bucket list...

    a .357 would be a bit small for me personally, me being a big bore fan. Yes I know it will do the job at close range, just MY version of a .357 is my .41 mag!

    I love the 41 mag. Its one of my all time favorite handgun calibers. I had a ruger bisley custom chambered in 41 with a 4.5" octagon barrel. I'm sorry that I sold the gun to this day, regardless of the profit.

    Yeah I consider the .41 mag to be the most under rated most versatile and useful revolver cartridge ever designed! Especially since I cast all my own bullets in varying degrees of hardness according to use and load for it so availability of factory ammo at stores don't apply to me.

    They're still making Blackhawks in .41 mag. On Blackhawks I usually put Super Blackhawk grips on because I have large hands. They didn't make the .41 mag wayyy back then, but he was a firearm nut so he would have liked it. If you can find & afford a Redhawk in .41 mag you'll be pleased! Ask Winds or Gordo about my Redhawk .41 mag and how smooth it is.

    Mine is a 6" S&W 657 no dash .41 Magnum that I've loved for two decades. Since my EDC is a .357 Sig since shortly after it was released, I had to copy this from American Handgunner, Nov/Dec 2012, pg. 75:

    "Today, the .357Sig is much like the 10mm and .41Magnum - appreciated more by the people who are seriously into shooting than by those who follow the herd. As the old Ford commercial said, "Ask the man who owns one." Regarding the .357 SIG, ask the man who has shot living things with it."

    It's like knowing a fine wine or great scotch! :yoda:

    Pretty cool article, very true too! My all time favorite deer rifle is a .284! I just noticed S&W just brought back the 657.

    Mine is a sweet little 7x57 spanish mauser. Does everything you ask it to do and doesn't beat you up in the process. Plus has a style that a lot of modern guns lack. Accuracy is fair to good which is outstanding considering the almost 100 years since this fine rifle was made and the original battle sights ..

    Yeah mine (7x57 Mauser) is an OLD complete sporterization/full custom complete gorgeous stock with shadowline cheekpiece, cartridge trap, engraved steel buttplate, plenty of engraving all over as only old world style could do, and an equally old german scope. It still shoots great and the ONLY way you can even tell it wasn't built on a commercial action is the telltale thumb cutout for stripper clips. I bought it literally for pennies on the original dollars it must have cost to build.
