Welcome

Welcome to the forum from north west Florida,USA. I to am a big fan of the single shot rifle. I told my wife the other day,"if I had it to do all over again,I would own ALL single shot rifles". This, except for one double(dangerous game) amd one AR(coyotes).

Tell us what you got,and what you will eventually get. Also will you/do you reload and/or hunt. If so...what critters do ya'll got there.

Again,welcome to the forum. ------pruhdlr

Welcome to the forum. Rules are to join in and have fun and play nicely with the rest of us kids.

All my guns are single-shot as long as I don't load more than one round at a time. ;).

I used to belong to the Single Shot Rifle Association twenty years ago. It's been a long while, though, as there wasn't much more than collecting activity for them going on around here then, and $15K Ballards are a little rich for my wallet. I wish it weren't so, but the fates are sometimes cruel.

Don't by shy! Chime right in with what you shoot and what you shoot 'em WITH! :)

I really like single-shot guns as well and if I didn't have a single rifle to my name, I'd buy an Encore with a handful of pistol and rifle barrels and be set for all of the shooting I ever do.

Long story short have you ever heard of a "liberal" in a non-classical sense. I would say the laws are more annoying to me but if you like "black guns" they are a PITA. There are a handful of states here run by liberals, California, Maryland (may be passing an "assult" weapons ban similar but worse than California's), New York and a couple others. But you all went off the deep end especailly for such a "Frontier" country like your's.

Buddy of mine lived in NY and used a Ruger #1 in 25-06 for varmints and deer. He hit on some hard times and had to sell it. I wish he'd asked me first cuz I would have bought it and held it until he could pay me back. He loaded his own ammo for it and swore it was the best combination rifle a guy could own.

Hello,

Welcome to the forum.

I only have one single shot rifle and that is an H&R trap door in .45-70. I would like to get myself a Sharps but they are a little out of my reach unless I buy a Pedersoli or Armi-Sport.

My wife has relatives in Australia. I think that they live somehwere near Sydney. (I hope that I spelled that correctly.) Her uncle was stationed there during WWII and never returned to the US. He's gone now but his wife is still alive and doing well.
