    UNLESS, you are the one they are trying to chew on..

    I know of a guy that shot four wolves stone dead with a .22. Just stood on his raised deck and shot them in the head from about 20-30 yards as they where growling and snarling at the dogs in his kennel. Nothing is scary when you know it can't get to you.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    Don't get me wrong here, I have a healthy respect for bears. I once had to shoot one at about 18" from the muzzle of my rifle as it was trying to climb into my treestand to escape a sow that was kicking it's butt.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    I think my first comment is truer then you think "UNLESS, you are the one they are trying to chew on.."

    Did ya get just a little pucker, or was it a good week before you could poop..

    Pete. I'm sure that featherweight is lonely without another mod 70 beside it in the cabinet. Why don't you do te right thing and bring her over? She will look good beside my mod 70. 257.

    I second the 6.5x55. I have an old husqvarna and love it. Easy to shoot and no recoil. But I also own a 308!

    I love my 300wsm and just put my 280rem. away for my son to use in the next few years.
    My 300wsm is a Browning Xbolt hunter stainless. I have 130gr, 150gr, 160gr and 180gr.
    Love this caliber. But ammunition is expensive. But I don't shoot all that much.
    I'm a fan of the wsm's.
