Russ I had heard of that 'Conversion-style' 30-30 but have not seen one.  I passed over one of the Turkish made AR clone 12ga shotguns a month ago. It looks just like the M-16, but heftier. 12 ga does that to guns. I have the AK-Saiga and love it. I almost got the M-1919 (M-16) shotgun, but $550 was more than I wanted to pay for a piece of eye-candy.
I'll get the camera going tonight on my G22. It is the black version.

I used to have a Model 59 . It was a great pistol. The 39 was the single stack version...Russ

Have you seen this: Mossberg 464™ SPX
http://www.mossberg.com/p...nterfire-464-spx/41026
Interesting.  I wonder if this was born of the current zombie craze.
 
I'd just as soon have a good 'ole Lucas McCain type lever rifle.

Another  "tangent-gun"  that never sold 'big-time' is the Ruger Charger...a Pistol version of the 10-22. I found one at the last auction I attended.

It has been a busy 24 hours
Last night , just before the legal shooting time ended, 7 deer raided our orchard (again). One did not escape. That's Doe Number 2. It was cold and raining lightly as Janet and I field-cleaned the critter in the lights of my truck pulled into the yard . Then we hung it in the neighbors Barn for butchering later.
    This morning the deer came back for more of the downed Persimmons in the orchard... Again One, and almost a second Doe (she got away unhurt).  That would be Doe # 3. So now we have two deer hanging , awaiting butchering. The temp tomorrow will get up to 50, so we will get busy early  doing the tedious task of deboning, cutting and wrapping the venison.
Thats three Does, We have tags for one more and two Bucks, and the first gun season ends Saturday. There is a second gun season from 12-26 to 1-6-13 that may provide some additional meat for us.
Janet has really taken to the hunt and prep work. She has learned very quickly how to do it all.

FANTASTIC!
 
Congratulations Al, to you and Janet. Our gun season opened yesterday and I did see three -- two does and a button buck. But I didn't have a shot. I was hunting with my .460 Smith & Wesson Magnum. I wasn't able to get out today, but I hope I'll be able to make it tomorrow. Frankly, I dread having to drag a deer out of the woods with my hip. It hurt so much yesterday that I got a referral today from my doc to an orthopod for a new hip. I guess I'll be doing something after the first of the year.

I sympathize with the need for joint repair or replacement, Michael.  I hope it goes well.
 
    The real advantage here is shooting from our back porch literally and using the lawn tractor to drag them either to our carport or the neighbors barn..a distance of 150 yards of gentle grass-covered slope for field-cleaning undercover.
 
One odd thing. We had left the innards of deer 2 in the field overnight. The morning raiders group came by the organs, sniffed and ignored them in the quest for fallen persimmons.  Both innard piles are now removed so the neighborhood dogs won't get into them.  Duff and Demi sniff deeply in the two kill spots, but haven't found anything to really "dig into". Hearts and livers were cooked and frozen for future dog food.

Livers? Livers? For dog food? After the backstraps venison liver is the best part.

Mr. Hoffman, get the hip done......you are young enough and the new surgery is so much better......mine is going, as it is, perhaps inherited. Mom had to have both done. She was great after that, and that was in the 1990's!

I saw something on TV yesterday that I have never seen before,  a commercial for guns.  Henry rifles to be exact.

Chris.. The Henry company has a 30 minute infomercial that plays on several cable channels. Anthony, The company President has posted here on RF a few times.
   Hopefully the damage done by "SANDY" will be repaired and the Henry's will be moving out again soon. It is a great rifle.

Tomorrow there is a major auction at my favorite gun auction house in Indianapolis.  My oldest son is going with me to do the 'leg-work', leaving at 5 AM to be able to go thru the items before bidding starts. I have a bunch  on my 'check this out list' to examine.
Plus two of my guns will find a new home with buyers who will meet me at the auction to complete their purchases...
This will be a busy Saturday.  BTW we now have three Does in the freezer. First gun season ends Sunday.

When you go to the auction, are you able to do a " Hands On " inspection or is it just a visual inspection?

Do you ever sell them or do you just buy? What handguns are you into? ...Russ

Uncle,
Each auction house handles the inspection-time differently, but all allow hands on 'touchy-feely fondling'. All have the plastic ties that prevent accidential loading or firing of the handguns..sor bore-light inspections on some can be difficult. We go early..got there at 7:30 for a 9 AM start...by 8 AM there were over a hundred guys checking out the guns.
 
Russ I buy and the 'flip' most of what I buy. The idea is to buy 3 and sell two to pay for the one I want to keep. Five of the eighteen I bought yesterday we purchased for a friend who examined them in the on-line catalog, and set a bid limit for me to buy for him. So I have 13 for myself, and I would say 8 or so will leave me in the next month via armslist or word of mouth from friends who are looking for a particular type or brand.
  Two keepers for sure- a 1911A1 clone, NIB Beautiful gun... and a CZ 452 target 22. That's a keeper for me.  3 Smith 9mm's and one Smith 40 S&W will go as soon as I can move them. I am not much interested in keeping 9mm autos.

Oldest G'daughter Ava killed her 1st deer, a doe, last week on their property in PA. She was quite proud as was I and her mom and step-dad. He made her help gut and skin it. Good for him!

The thread is HAS BEEN REOPENED at this time. It may be ready for posting shortly-- when the current political issues related to the topic have settled and a normal, non-political discussion can resume.
 
     I will repeat my point made to a couple of the posters, If you do not want to participate in the discussion on the positive aspects of recreational firearms use, feel free to go elsewhere. This Will Not Become a Forum for the Pro-Anti Debate.

OK, We are going to try to open this thread again. If it is to remain open really depends on the self-control of the posters regarding what can and cannot be posted here.
We wish to discuss technical issues related to the shooting sports and hunting, results of hunting trips, firearms variations and technical data.
 
   If personal or home defense becomes a topic, it will only be allowed if the post does not 'cross the line' into legal or political statemnts. Discussion of individual State regulations is discouraged except for inquiries by travelers as to laws that may apply to a roadtrip or movement between States.
Please, folks, keep within the guidelines or we will have to shut the thread down again.

My Step Dad bought a new Judge , that pistol is bad to the bone , I vaporized a small melon with one shot. I have been practicing with my .40 and 45 but the cost of ammunition jumped so high and the availability of the various ammo I buy I have turned to Archery, I can get arrows any time.

We have consummed about 75% of the Pork we obtained on our Missouri Hog Hunt last September. Janet is talking about another trip over to MO this Fall for a Hog and, this time, she wants to take a Bison.  I really enjoyed our visit last fall, and hope we can work out a time to go before the really cold weather sneaks in. 
 
I have a couple of new choices for primary hog or Bison guns.
A Ruger Scout 308 nd a Ruger Model 77 in 338 Win Magnum lead the field this year. Janet lover her 44 magnum carbine, and it took 3 deer and her hog last year , so using it again could be a good thing.
