Unhappy You know you are old if...

Someday, sadly, we will be saying, "You know you are old IF you can remember owning a gun".

I used to have a fair selection of guns: two .30-06 big game rifles, a .243 all purpose varmint rifle, a .45-70 Sharps buffalo rifle just for fun, two .22-250s for hunting prairie dogs in particular, a Model 1894 .32 Special Saddle Gun that dad bought when he came home from the War, three model 12 Winchester pump shotguns in .20 and 12 Gauge, a Browning automatic 12 Gauge, a .223 AR-15 Bushmaster, an 8 shot .22 Harrington and Richard Revolver, a Colt .357 Mag Trooper Revolver, two .45 Cal 1911A1 Auto Pistols, a Charter Arms .32 Mag Revolver, and finally a Sig Sauer AR-716 .308 Rifle. I used to love to shoot them all - reloading bulllets and the whole nine yards. But as time has gone on, they all just got to be too heavy and too much upkeep. So I've given all but the last few to my sons - and I guess it won't be too long before I give up the rest. I haven't pulled a trigger in two years. Makes me sad to think on it...!

Democrat control in some states have made it obvious that its ALL semi autos they are after. In WA State they have passed new laws that target EVERY semi-auto. Even basic tubular fed .22 rifles, with no resemblance to assault weapons. It used to be, if you had a concealed carry permit, that required background check, you didn't have to wait 10 days for a handgun. NOW you do, even if you have a concealed carry permit.

But these are next. Ever watch the Rifleman? Just a fictional TV show but a lever action can fire a lot of rounds very quickly.

They will be next.

I'm going to be buyin lever actions over the next couple of years, before they pass laws against them also. In WA, there is now a mandatory 10 day waiting period for anything semi-auto. But levers and pump shotguns are exempt, for now.

I agree Mike, for NOW, who knows what's next. I've also been thinking about a lever-action rifle, just not sure what cal to buy or brand? Your thoughts Mike?

I love both my Winchester 30-30 and my Henry HMR-17. ButIMO, the Henry has a much smoother action. I am considering getting the H018-410R, which is a lever action .410 shotgun from Henry. They also have the AR-7, which I have already bought.

Check out the Henry lever actions at https://www.henryusa.com/henry-rifles-and-shotguns/

Nice Woody, If I can I'd rather have a 357 Mag instead of the 30-30. This way I have more than one weapon that shoots the same round. I have Ruger Blackhawk 357 with a 6" barrel. So the question is: Who manufactures a good lever action 357 Mag?

The 30-30 was my dad's and when he passed away, I ended up with it. I also ended up with his 16 Ga and his dad's (my grandad) 12 Ga. Both are pumps.

Henry does. Go on their site and look at these. Every one has a caliber option of 357 Mag.
