Hi new guy here glad I found this place.

I have had an itch for a double rifle for sometime now and in my search I found this forum.

I also would like to hunt with my double rifle when I find what I want.


I am not sure why I want to do these things I just do, I currently own a few rifles and a couple of pistols i have been thinking of selling a few to make a little more room.

I've seen the 470NE and it seems to tickle my fancy but I have no idea how it recoils I have shot 375H&H no worries and a few other things like 300RUM so I don't know.

Anyways I'm off to go read a bit more on this forum.

Thanks Dave.

It's pretty much stopped raining although it did rain the night before last but it was only a light shower.

There is still a fair bit of water laying around at the moment it should dry up in a few weeks or so.

Here's a photo I took the other day on my way home of some camels, sorry for the poor quality I took it with my phone.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
