What should you do? Call the military and see if you can borrow a bigger gun. I hope you can find any of the woodchucks you hit those 2 cannons.

OK, seriously, if your having that hard of a time choosing which one to take I would take BOTH of them.

That will also give you a little relief on barrel heating if the shooting is good.

Good luck and only head shots count.

This reminds me of the time I went rabbit hunting with a 357 mag.

No, use your cannons. It makes a much nicer red spray when you hit them.

Wish I could go.

Shoe, You like that one? Try shooting a turkey in the butt at 50 yards with a 150 grain 7 rem mag ballistic tip. It was like shooting a feather pillow. Didn't mess the breasts up either.

Congrats on the rodent kills Cody.

Badshot: I did indeed. When you mention the turkey shooting, the only image that comes to mind is Randy Johnson making the seagull explode in a puff of feathers.

I just chuckle at all of that bit. Last time I went hunting, it was for squirrels with a bolt action, 4x scoped .22 LR, and I thought that was a grand time.

Random question for you Badshot: you, Specter and Jeffvn are all in the immediate Houston area, correct?

I don't know about Specter but Jeff and I live in Houston. And I believe Topo-Sniper lives just outside of Houston in one of the "burbs". If you are familiar with Houston I live on the southwest side about 10 minutes from American Shooting Centers.

I'm somewhat familiar with Houston. My Dad used to own a house down off of Post Oak in the Galleria area. Can't say I know where ASC is though....

OK. That's out in the Addicks area. I know where that is, vaguely. Isn't there a West Oaks shopping mall or something right in the area?

Yes West Oaks mall is at 6 and Westhiemer. You planning to come over and get with us to shoot in the morning?
