    Either my .54 cal muzzle loader or my S&W 460. Depends on my mood and the distance the shot is likely to be at. Can't wait though!

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    We hope to get some blood on the wife's new 270WSM Model 70 and I have a 45-70 guide gun that I'm itching to try out. Here is a photo of a broken in rifle... LOL

    Probably my 300WSM with my Berger 168g handloads, although I may use my bow this season.

    I think this year I'm gonna use the elbow, and possibly a choke hold.

    If you cant stand behind the troops in Iraq.. Feel free to stand in front of them.

    Either by Dog and knife or the leap from treestand with a dagger move.

    Realistically I'll probably just use my .300WSM or the Bennelli Super Nova with a rifled 490 gr brenneke slug, the other methods maybe after those Hollywood black bears.

    I love the Zeiss Conquests. They are great scopes.

    I took last years with a 130 year old Alex Henry double rifle in 450/400 BPE. This year I'm looking at taking my Sharps 45-70.
