Tarbe mentioned "I am just one gun away from being happy".

Actually, I am just one gun past being happy (have one DR to many) , but I will manage somehow.

Actual truth- I have no need or "wants" for another rifle, shotgun, or hand gun. I have become proficient with all my present guns and have No time to shoot the ones that I have now. What I need and want is more time to hunt with the ones that I have. We are winding down my company and hope that frees up some useable time before year end.
That is my outlook. In fact, I'm considering thinning my herd.

I thought about an extra set of barrels for my 9.3x74R when I ordered it from Heym. Unfortunately that meant I would not have been able to have it in time for my hunt in August. So, decided against it.

I almost went with @WAB on this one .........

But today at least, it would be a newly commissioned Westley Richards Droplock in .375 flanged magnum, regulated at 120 meters for the 270 gr Swift A Frame. :E Day Dreaming:
I'm with you Red Leg....but make mine a 450/400 3".

Well, I'm having a 404J built now.

I have my eye on the Uberti Courteney Stalking Rifle. I've also been wanting a SxS 16ga hammer gun.

My probably never going to happen gun would have to be a British double in 500 Nitro.

Tikka T3 or Browning XBolt. Both are excellent out of the box performers.

I would love a 284 Win on a Pre 64 M70 Winchester with a 26” barrel.
Either factory original or custom rifle that looks like it came out of the factory.

This will probably be my last bolt action rifle.

* A Granite Mountain Arms Magnum Mauser action Reto Buehller custom ( .505 Gibbs )
* A Winchester Model 21 Duck ( 12 Gauge 3 “ Magnum )

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
