If I was starting over. I would of kept my 2 old S&W .22 revolvers, a 4" Combat Masterpiece, a 6" Target Masterpiece, they taught my how to shoot a revolver and put many a grouse, ptarmagain and bunny on the table. I would of kept a beautiful Dakota .358 Win. I got for $600.00 and let the original owner have back as we are friends and he sold for cheap again to some one else. I would of kept the Mauser 338-06 with the McMillan stock and Douglas barrel that loved 225 grain Barnes X bullets. I would be shooting a .45 Colt S&W Mountain Gun instead of my .44 Mag. I would of done more hunting with a 30-06. I would of some how tried to justify a good over/under shot gun. I would of bought a couple of old Winchester .22 pumps when I had the chance. I would of bought a nice old Mod. 94 Winchester 30-30 and shot a moose and caribou with it. I would of bought a Big Bore .356 Winchester and shot moose and caribou with it.
I would not of shot over the back of the big and beautiful interior Toklat grizzly in 1974, I still remember the cross hairs floating over his back when the shot broke, darn it! I would carry a camera more often as I missed some good pictures. I would of spent more time in a wall tent.
I would be more thankful for life's opportunities, I had more then I deserve.
