the caveat is if you have a lever gun with the "lever" on the side like this:

South African Customs isn't going to get the joke and probably won't think it's funny.:)

I have been thinking about taking my 45/70 marlin along next trip. It shoots these Barnes 300 grain Vortx ammo real well. I put a green fiber optic front post on it and it gives a nice sight picture. Would be fun to bag an animal or two with it.

I am currently wrestling with the decision of whether to take my own rifles to South Africa in 2018 or use my PH's. If I do decide to take my own, the next tough decision will be whether to take my Tikka T3 in 7mm Rem Mag, or my Browning BLR in .308 (which is my personal favourite gun). There's just something about thumbing back that hammer that feels better than a bolt action safety!

Go for that BLR! I have one being rebored and rechambered now that if completed with ample amount of practice time, will be going back with me in 2018. If not that trip, then certainly the next. Some guys knock the BLR's, but many, including myself, love them and I find them fitting as a PG rifle.

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

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
