.50 cal is a very practical round for day to day use around the neighborhood. Perfect for stopping lightly armored mail trucks, taking out noisy stereos from down the street, bringing down SWAT teams when they crash your meth lab.

Once I finally get all the cosmo out I'll see how she hits.
I have a Russian milled receiver SKS, left stock. Under no circumstances would I own an AR-15 in any form. Too many bad memories of jamming. I'd rather go into the bush with an M-1 Carbine. Sure, it's a weak sister but at least it fires reliably and you don't have to tape a cleaning rod to the forestock to clear the inevitable jams.

For hunting duty it's a left-handed Remington 700BDL in 30-06. I've got home loads for any purpose from 130 to 185 gr. Including 150gr APs.

For a camp rifle I like the Marlin 1895 in 45-70. Or sometimes I take the Stevens 12ga with slugs. At the cabin a 12ga side by side Marlin takes anti-badger duty. Yes we have badgers and I won't let any near where the kids play. I see a badger and it is toast.

For fun I've got the usual 10-22 like everyone else has. And a mini-14 for more serious plinking. Plus I inherited a couple of trapdoor Springfield 45-70s from my dad with 1873 dates stamped on the receivers. He got them for $4 each at a Hollywood movie studio auction back around 1947. I load black powder rounds for them and they are a hoot to pop off at night.

Not here in your state, the tragedy that was the beer isle pales beyond compare. And after hitting Burger Bar up in Roy Immortality is off the table, just hope I make it home before the heart attack happens. D@mn tasty and some of the best fries ever with more salt than the flats...

Oh, sorry, gun string...

Dr.Sprocket -

The LOML got me a Kimber SIS full size upon my retirement from the USNR.

It is the nicest 1911 I've ever held.

Expensive, but to get anybody elses product to the refinement of the Kimber would cost the same, probably more.

My brother-in-law has the Para-Ordnance 12-45 which is a very nice pisol also. If you simply must own a 1911 you should check it out.

"If you simply must own a 1911....."

You mean if you are dumb enough to want a 1911!

Now now. Did I ever say it was a bad pistol? No. There is plenty of ancient stuff that is high quality. A Fokker Triplane was cutting edge for its day. Oh, wait. The 1911 was around the same time wasn't it?

I really had fun with a Taurus Raging Bull .500 Magnum a couple years ago. Talk about a hand cannon.

My next handgun will be a 1911 or an XD-M.
