No worries, most city people wouldn't know the terminology here anyways. But some of those old bush doctors might fix you up quick smart. laugh

I have been Ian. I've about got the rough edges smoothed down now though, ha.

We got a chance to use that little .44 bolt action the other day. A young fella took a bear with it. He had the job done with the first shot, but got a little excitable and gave it a couple extra. Two went fully through the chest and the third broke the neck and lodged against the back of the skull just shy of breaking the hide on the far side.

That was with those 270-grain loads that aren't really that hot. They're just thumpers though. I don't see any reason that I'd need more gun for anything here, and my wife and kids can shoot this thing.

Thats why I I'm so wrapped in my Marlin, holds 10 shots, fun to shoot and packs a wallop.
The guide gun packs too much of a wallop. Still fun to shoot though. grin

If I get a chance to pick up one of those Marlin levers in 44 mag I'll be grabbing one. Provided it's reasonable, that is. That's a package that makes sense.

Got some more use with the bolt. One of these days maybe I'll be the one to take something with it grin Great gun, wouldn't be one everyone needs, but fills a perfect role for what I need in some situations.

If it comes right down to the nitty gritty, here's what I would like this little Ruger to be:

#1. Forget the removable magazine and just give me the style of a Remington 700 ADL....don't even put a floor plate on the bottom that can open and drop your ammo while crawling through the brush after bayed bear.

#2. I've got a peep sight here for it that I didn't get installed and sighted before season, so we kept the little scope on it. The scope is working great RIGHT NOW, but this gun is taking a real beating and I'm still considering dropping the scope and going strictly with the peep. Time will tell there I guess. We had a situation the other day that I was very glad of the scope, so hell, I don't know....

I love peep sights, and have spent most of my hunting with peeps. My problem is, old tired eyes. laugh
I really need optics on a rifle now days, I also hate shooting with glasses. A scope allows me to slip them into my pocket and use the scope without them.

btw Here's a link to our ADI equivalents.

That's a good table. I'm really happy to get the carbine shooting so well. It is just a short-range weapon for us, but it shoots tight at 30 yards which is where I need it. I wish it had the old 'tube' feed like the Ruger Deer Slayer or Deer Field had though. Man it would be perfect if it fed by tube and without the magazine. That sucker is HARD to extract when the pressure is on lol.
