You have to watch out for them bushes, they sneak up on ya.Those are my "Open Range" guns for that HUGE :-D 8 acre ranch we bought near San Antonio. The rifle is a "Texas Brush Popper" how could I resist? I never had the urge to pop a brush, but if I ever do, I will be prepared!
Truthfully though... I like keeping the ammo selection as small as possible and I already have a couple of 38spl pistols, and these will shoot 357 or 38. That's the practical side of it... the other part is that I've just always wanted a matching pistol/carbine combo and I don't have another lever gun. I think these will be fun for taking something a little different to range once in a while.
I think I'll get a good leather holster that ties around my thigh... I'll swager around town saying "Howdy Pilgrim" in my best John Wayne impression.
Nice shootin' arms.
