Gary especially and others here what should I do with that rifle? Change caliber, Reederize it? Trade it? Help me out,Gary.

I have a hankering for a .50 AK since

it can fire .501 GNR, .500 LB, .500 Max. single shot style. With TrailBoss and a pistol bullet it's downright mild. Or you can load it to make it clap your shoulder blades!

.510...dyslexia.

or shady ladies in New Orleans, I would leave it as a 45-70. It is such a good caliber and can be used on anything from fire ants in Florida to Brown Bears in Alaska. If the gun were mine I would do one of 2 things to it. Either slick it up with a new finish, nice engraving, good butt pad, maybe a brake if recoil isn't your bag, and make it a special hunting rifle to hand down to a son or daughter. The other option would be to trade it in toward credit on a custom handgun for the next HHC.

45-70

I've got that rifle I used at the HHC, so let me trade up for the g2 in the above post. Thanks, Gary, good advice in both posts.

Winn, e-mail me when you can and let me know what
