Lazi, if you ever want to dump that 30-30 let me know smile I have a Marlin 30-30 XLR and it's one of my favorite rifles. I have a 16" Mossberg 30-30 that needs some love, but it will need to wait till I have time to find a load with a fast burning powder so I don't get blinded by the flash in broad daylight.

I've always sorta kicked myself for going with that Mossberg instead of a 336. 16" is just a bit short for a 30-30, though it's handy in a tree stand...

Also have a Marlin LTD Edition 45-70 that I regularly use. One of 500 made. Just saw one still in box go for $5700 and thought "Why the heck am I hunting with this????"

Then there's the Rossi 45LC in stainless with a cherry stock. Live the look, though I've yet to hunt with it.

And the Marlin 44Mag ... That one I really like. Shoot a deer at 20 yards (if that). I saw the hole open up through the sites. Tracked that deer for over 100 yards despite a double lung hit. I wasn't that impressed from a "deer stopping" perspective (though I wouldn't hesitate to shoot one again inside 50 yards), but that and the 45LC would make fantastic defense/truck guns. Something like 10 rounds for in the full-barrel-length mag. A 357 would also make for a fantastic rifle.

...and if course the 45-70 Cowboy 24" octagon barrel that I've loaned indefinitely to my dad...I couldn't bear to scope it, and he shoots cowboy action, so it seemed a natural fit smile

...and the Henry 22lr...

I DO wish I had a 357....and a few others.

I'm getting the itch for another lever gun. I'm thinking an older 336 in 30/30. I want to build a nice little truck gun. I have one of the original Guide Guns in 45/70 and I love that thing. But it's not a truck gun. I have WWG ghostring sights and a WWG Happy trigger in it. It's ported and is one heck of a quick brush gun.

Nice MB, I am jealous! I think one of these days, after my MSR addiction subsides, I'll pick up another 30-30.

Interestingly, I have an old Stevens bolt action 30-30. It's short and quick and lighter than a lever gun. Interesting little gun.

I have a bolt action 410 with a mag tube like a 22.
