Africa 5 times, USA - most western states including Alaska and Hawaii.
I am a retired Aerospace Engineer and life long hunter, mostly whitetail deer in Texas. I dearly love the Krag Jorgensen rifles and have been slowly acquiring them as availability allows.
Hello kragfan,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

Most antique cartridge rifles interest me to one degree or another.
The Krag is one of these that I enjoy examining and shooting.
I had owned one in past years, a full length infantry rifle.
Fired it from time to time at targets and I threatened to take it hunting.
But sadly, I never did hunt with it, mostly because I live in coastal Alaska.
(During our fall hunting season, it rains here a lot).

However, another old rifle grump here in AK that, I have known for almost 40 years now, often uses a vintage .30-40 for caribou hunting.
It was sporterized (perhaps in the 1930’s?) by someone who really knew what they were doing.
It is a real beauty, vintage receiver sight and all.
Be that as it may, my favorite of the various Krag designs is the US Army carbine version, unaltered.

In case you know anyone who cares, I also like the Winchester Model 95 saddle ring carbine in .30-40 as well.
While I’m on this rant, the M-95 Winchester in .303 British, especially again, the saddle ring carbine version, is another interesting rifle.

My apology for wandering off topic (as usual).
Anyway, everyone here is glad you joined.

Best Regards,
Velo Dog.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
