up a bit the chucks are wanting to poke their noses out. I took a drive yesterday to one of my local haunts and did see a few. I did not try to shoot any, and probably won't for awhile, I want to let them pup first--need to get the next generation going.

Today I took the 300 GNR out to make sure it was still shooting well, it was, did not have to touch anything. At 60 yards it was still shooting center. Also while out, I shot my Marlin 1894 25-20. What a fun little rifle.

The 300 GNR and a couple pups from last year.

Nice shooting!

OK I'll bite, what's the gun resting on, a tripod?

It's just right, as Baby Bear might say.

As much as I don't like admitting it, it is getting too hard to make this kind of shot with open sights in the basalt rocks.

revolver. Sometimes the shots are well past 100 yards and head shots are best. A wounded chuck will manage to get in his den with anything but a head shot. I have a Burris 10-X on mine.

I must like pictures.

Of the 64 chucks I shot last spring, all with revolvers, these were the only ones not shot with the 300 GNR. My favorite the 455 GNR with cast SWC Keith style bullets. No chuck gets away from that.

Yep, exactly.

The legs swivel apart and the leather strap lets you adjust the height. I don't know that I would have bought that one as compared to some of the others out there, but a friend in the Okanogan makes them. Just helping to support him.

The small bores are so much fun with the 25-20...

Leading the pack. Realize the big bore appeal, but folks shortchange themselves by not having smaller guns too.

Ok you got me, with all your talk about the 25-20

I’ve got the itch to shoot mine. I’ll have to dig my old Marlin 25-20 out of the safe. I do love shooting the old gun, but I have to replace the ejector. I have a new one, just haven’t got around to replacing it yet. I sure wish I had a handgun in 25-20, they have to be a lot of fun.

all you have to do is place the order and furnish the

Yikes, the world doesn't need that...

But, have enjoyed exploring a new realm. Think there is a real market out there for small bores.

Reality is they're used much more than big stuff.

thanks to all our liberal politicians we can't hunt

prairie dogs until the middle of the summer. They tried to put a limit of 6 on them but that failed, thank the Lord.In a good year I have driven my Bronco out into the middle of a prairie dog town, put sand bags on the hood and shot prairie dogs all day. Then as I drove away you could see prairie dog heads sticking out of the holes. In a good year there are hundreds in a dog town, probably more.
