Most Alaskans have designated.....Bear defense firearms and their serious hunting firearms. Too what extent (not counting trapping) do you have designated winter firearms.......???
My winter firearms have a extremely short LOP to compensate for thick winter clothing. I have a lot of predators in the yard, and as most shots are sub 100 yards, I have a short LOP .22 LR with a 28" barrel (CZ-LUX). For walking along the beach or 6-mile creek in the winter I have just mated my best AR-15 lower to a 24" upper, with a 4X to 12X Leupold. I like the 10 round magazines for walk'about.
So what is your snow machine or winter firearm..........?????
