1. Marlin model 1893, 38-55 caliber.
2. About twice.
3. Loading and shooting.
4. Align the sights on the target and squeeze the trigger to cause the hammer to fall without disturbing the sight alignment.
5. No. See 4. above.
1. Weaver or Isosoles ?
2. Bill Jordan & Charlie Askins faced of at High Noon, who wins ?
3. Keith or O'connor. Who would you have wanted to shoot with ?
4. Your favorite 1911 ?
5. Ever had a negligent discharge ? Sorry, had to ask.
1. It's a modified Cooper/Weaver.

3. Elmer. Oh, yeah, Elmer.
4. Les Baer TR special.
5. Oh Yes. But the bullet always went where the muzzle was pointed.
Perfect- I didn’t know what to ask when I read this thread so I asked questions by looking at what I had on me and use.
My tools- incase you are interested
1-agreed nothing better then 1911 for sidearm. Springfield TRP Operator/ Milt sparks rig. 2-Modified Isosoles, ride the safety 3-Current favorite load Berry plated 185 hollow base round nose/Starline brass/ 5.4 clays/ fed 150. Makes major for all the games I play - I always carry 2 extra mags 2nd mag carries this load cause it’s a great grouse load and shoots same spot my self-defense load at 25 yards. 4-Carry load- Barnes 185 XPB/ Starline Super Brass/ 10gr 3N37/ Fed 150. Where I live Black bears will likely soak these up rather then a 2 legged scumbags. Game I have shot with this load the pedals where folded backward and one or two pedals broke off. However great penetration with decent wound channel and 95 % weight retention with those that I have recovered. 5-Weak side- Emerson Karambit waved folder. Emerson Commander is also favorite and rides strong side when in places handgun cannot go.
In the short time here I have enjoyed reading your posts. Thanks for sharing your knowledge & experience.
I am thinking of buying a CZ 550 American Safari rifle in 375 H&H. I have never shot a big bore. Most of my hunting has been for deer in Western New York using a Remington 870 slug gun. I also have shot a Thompson Center Omega using two 50 grain Triple 7 pelets and a 200 grain bullet. Does the 375 recoil more than either the 12 ga. or 50 cal? Is it necessary to cross bolt, glass, slick-up the action, replace the recoil pad with a Limbsaver, etc. and put a muzzle brake on the new gun to shoot it easily and accurately?
Cross bolt? No, it's already got 'em.
Glass? Yeah, probably would help keep the screws tight and for accuracy.
Slick up the Action? Yes, CZ's and most others are a little rough.
Replace the pad? No, the CZ comes with a pretty good pad.
Muzzle brake? No! Never. The 375 doesn't need recoil abatement.
