    Then said I, Here am I; send me.

    While I really do like the guns, I think you’ll have to count me out – I’m not keen on sleeping out on the open prairie on the hard ground with a saddle for a pillow. Nope, I need a bed with a mattress, and a room with air conditioning in the warmer weather, or heating in the cooler weather. And a horse doesn’t come with air conditioning, power steering, stereo, or even doors/windows/roof . . . My idea of roughing it’s a black-and-white television back at the hotel room. And, I'm not even going to discuss the toilet and/or bathing facilities . . .

    I'm with you, but I got a Winchester 94 in .30-30, and a S&W M-67 4" in .38 Spl., in a black Triple K holster, with a black 1 1/2" belt. I also like to wear my 'rain hat' ....a flat brimmed Stetson, my old jeans, a flannel shirt, and my black 'Chuka boots'. Guess I'm not a 'flat lander'.....the mountains are a few miles away....but I live in the 'foot hills'. I haven't got 'the guts' to wear all of my 'outfit' around here.......but I can wear the clothes.......but not the 'hardwear'!!!! Bob

    Miroku 1873 Winchester 45 Colt. Season before last shot a doe with. Load was 240 grain Sierra JHC 45 Colt and a max charge of Unique. I was impressed. Would not be afraid to shoot the biggest buck in the woods with it.

    I'm pretty fond of my lever guns too, BLR.308, Henry .22WRM & .45 Winchester 94 Trapper. We call the sideloaders Cowboy Assault Rifles, you can top off the magazine w/out taking them out of action & w/ a bit of practice stay on target.

    I have several Henry levers, 357, 41 mag, 45 Colt, Marlin 30-30, Marlin 44 mag, Marlin 45-70 (ported and unported). That is a beauty and should be an excellent shooter.

    Yesiree, I'm a lever gun fan..........22LR, .22WMR, 250-3000, .270 Win, 30-30, ,308, 30-06, .357, .44 Magnum, .45 Colt......I like single actions too, although I primarily shoot DA's........I especially like "Companion sets" (same caliber long & short gun sets).

    Yep, cowboy guns have a mystique that many us us appreciate and relate too (to varying levels of "The Real McCoy").

    Does this qualify as a lever gun? 1885 Winchester made 1889 45-70. Original barrel was beyond toast so I had it rebarreled with barrel address duplicated and rust blued. Very accurate.
