It seems in recent years that most guns we see in the gun stores are .22's, shotguns, or "deer rifles". I think something has been lost with the passing of rifles that are really pleasant to just do some target shooting with, or to take on a "walkabout". I've carried a pretty good mix of guns around the ridges in the area, and enjoy shooting at the range too. Currently, some medical issues keep me from spending as much time in the woods as I would like, and I'm in the market for something just fun, and accurate to shoot mostly cast bullets in. What are all your favorites? I'm not in to military stuff too much ( was on the receiving end of too much of that), but I certainly have played with more than my share of Mausers, etc. I wish one could find some of the modest rimmed cartridges in lighter single shots, or even bolt guns. Cartridges like the 25-35, 32-40, and 30-30 are sure fun to work with but when found tend to be found in the "deer hunting version". It's not that I don't like those a lot (I was looking at two bull moose through the scope of my .35 the other day), but am looking for something a bit different to play with. With older eyes, it would be nice if it could be scoped easily. So, what does everyone like, or what would they like if it were available??
