Well, with a young growing family and not alot of extra funds at the end of the day, i am thinking of depleting my reloading supplies and my firearm collection. I am thinking of going with my .45-70 Guidegun with fiber optic open sites and an over the reciever mounted leuopold 2x compact in Leupold quick release rings. My current hunting situations never allow for a longer than 200 yard shot and for all intensive purposes i feel the Guidegun is the one to keep as i will never feel undergunned. I can also go in and dog bush with open sights utilizing the quick release scope rings. I will also of course keep a .22 Thoughts on utilizing this set up as my go to gun???
