Maybe in kali, not here in Nevada, they do not meet the firearms classification for firearms under N.R.S.
Great link you posted, thx.
The best thing I’ve done for my .45-70 is to buy Remington 405 Grain Core Lokt. They have plenty of oomph, and felt recoil is less than that of the .357 levergun I shoot. I actually considered selling my .45-70 as it was unpleasant to shoot more than 2-3 rounds through it (I used to shoot 325 grain LeverEvolution), and this past week I put a dozen through it testing my Ranger Point Precision Cloverleaf peep. I could have kept going but the ammo is a bit pricey..45-70. I'm sure it will be interesting to shoot.
There is temptation to post this in response:Never felt the need for a "truck gun". Or work gun. Or home gun. Or any other gun.
I have carried guns in Baja... Just need the right paperwork.So if Scott Brady, who started this thread, just did weeks in baja according to his g-wagen article on the home page, what does everyone think his truck gun of choice would have been? I doubt he will be able to say anything given the strict laws that exist in the disarmed crime-free utopia of Mexico...but let's just pretend.
Nice purchase Rayra. For the most part, the issues are behind Marlin now. I looked at a 336 not long ago and it did NOT pass my QC check (the whole lever cycle felt life it was lubricated with broken glass), but my friend whose shop sells them by the dozen says that’s a very rare thing these days.Well not quite a 'truck gun', but this gun will be in the truck the next time I head out to the high desert -
New production Marlin 1894, 20" bbl, .44mag. 10+1.
I'd seen all the horror stories about 'Remlin' quality problems and even a few negative tales of recent years. But it passed my own inspection and function checks so I called it 'good'.
Already figuring to put a 'big loop' on it (~$75), spent too many of my formative years watching 'The Rifleman' reruns to not do so. Not sure what took me nearly 50yrs to get around to buying my first lever gun. Had a Daisy BB gun with a lever in my yout.
I’ve had a couple of semi-stressful situations in central Mexico, but nothing that I couldn’t diffuse with a few minutes of smooth talking. Nothing I would be carrying would have been any good in the “one guy sitting in his truck with trailer behind and his wife beside him VS a half dozen guys with AKs scenario”. Would I have felt more comfortable with a bit of firepower? Sure. Would it have caused more problems in that circumstance than it would have solved? Yup, sure could have.I have carried guns in Baja... Just need the right paperwork.
However, I could really care less. It is their country and their rules. The most stressful situation I have ever encountered in Baja was when the taco stand ran out of shrimp
I have indeed been looking at the Skinner sights and am quite taken with them. And they seem reasonably priced. And with my worsening astigmatism a peep sight is definitely desirable. And the increased sight radius, too. Even though a pistol-caliber carbine doesn't carry all that far.
