I do not understand why people buy single and double rifles for hunting.
Now please, before I go any farther, please understand that I am not criticizing anyone; I just don't personally understand why people love these types of rifles such as the Contenders and the No.1s and the upscale British doubles so much. Why would you limit yourself to just one or two shots, especially in the presence of dangerous game? I must be missing something. Is it the mystique? Is it the challenge of knowing you just have one or two shots?
I love knowing that I have two to four back-up shots (or in the case of my Enfields, nine more shots). Isn't that better?
Enlighten me you minimalists.
