Who has the greatest number of deer rifles (,other than RFD,s )on the Forum,including small centrefires for deer ?
I had an American guest out a few years ago at roe and while sitting waiting for the deer he was telling me he had decided to sell off some of his weapons as it took a whole weekend to clean and rub them down with oil etc for storage and he liked to do that once a year even if not used. He said he was going to get rid of about 25 or so. I asked him how many he had and he replied between 125 and 150 pistols, revolvers, shotguns and rifles! He had never sold a gun in his life up until that point he said, including his first ever air rifle given to him as a boy, which he still had to that day.
While that's generally a good rule I am more inclined to beware of the man with several rifles in many different action styles . While the guy with say a bolt action may be very deadly , if his bolt gun breaks down and he's forced to use a friends say Marlin lever action then he's screwed .Beware of the man with only 1 rifle as they say!
