Re: I am spending a few days with Paco ...

Jim, I think we're all moving slower these days and that's not such a bad thing. Since my run in with this covid thing I'm limited to how far I can go by this tether as they have me on O2. I'm recovering but it's slow. Please don't let Paco get this ugly thing.

Hey folks, I just spent the last two weeks in the hospital with that covid based illness. Trust me, it's as hard to get rid of as they say. I'm hoping there will never be a round two.

Re: Levergun Bison Hunt.....

I had a friend in my muzzleloading club years ago that went out west to an indian reservation for a guided hunt. When he got there they wouldn't let him hunt with his muzzleloader. He ended up having to borrow a .270 Winchester from the guide. He dropped the buff in it's tracks.

Re: Favorite combinations. (Rifle and handgun)

I think if you're walking in the woods with a handgun and a long gun the point is to have a long gun that can reach out as well as a handgun for up and close. I'm not sure the two interchange even though the calibers do. I'd rather carry a rifle caliber and take full advantage.
