I would like a bolt 243; some model 1911 type and maybe a 45 colt lever. Mostly the 243.
My list of wants is a short one:I don't make a wish list.I just buy 'em when I get a whim .
I fired a 44 mag Redhawk at the range some time back and I was surprised at how the design of the gun tamed the recoil. The owner loaded some pretty hot loads (he said they were hotter than factory but he didn't say how hot.) and that worried me a bit because I had not shot a big gun like that before. The recoil was straight back and didn't flip the muzzle up like a single action hogleg does. Made me a promise to get one someday. I am adding a Redhawk to the list of 2013 guns.Ruger Redhawk now your talking
Gumpy, have you considered a Thompson Center or SSK Industries handgun? They make Contender pistols and SSK may have a revolver also...I don't know, but if anyone would, I would guess they would have something like that in a .30 carbine cartridge.If you are talking to me, I have a Marlin Levermatic in .30 carbine, manufactured in 1965. I've been told more than once that was not possible! It would be nice to have a good solid handgun chambered in the same thing.
SSK sells high end guns. Used to be Wildcats and most still are. I don't think their ammo brand (SSK or JDJ's or what ever they are called are available except from them or as components. Used to be many of their cartridges were based on .458 Win Mag brass. Now I think they use .444 brass. I am not exactly up on them anymore...so I sent you the link so you could peruse their stuff if ya want to. Their most popular used to be a 375 JDJ which was a 458 brass necked down to .375. Add a lot of powder and a couple hundred grains of bullet and you have a 250 yard big African deer gun.I like how the blackhawk in my grubby little hands. It's a good fit. I haven't heard of SSK ( I think) but I will check on it. Right now I'm too poor to do more than look. The boss still doesn't know about the Mauser!! I hope she has not kept count!!! lol
We dont have to many big African Deer here in North Alabama. lol
