LMAO!! Oh my gosh, I have tears swelling up in my eyes after laughing so hard.

You forgot one thing though... Tisk Tisk..... Muley has an eye patch over his right eye.

Another thread takes off in the wrong direction.

I blame Jon.

I like all of them. If they go boom, make smoke, and are accurate I like it. I would never hesitate to use a .45 on deer or black bear. Elk, moose or bigger bears - at least a .50. But lately I am starting to fall in love with my .54 1:70 PRB shooter. I know the .50 will deliver more energy out yonder. But I like getting close and that big old ball will surely put a hurtin on anything that walk, flies or crawls.
And Muley, you take it easy on ol' MD. He's gettin pretty frail in his old age.

I wish Colorado would get their head out of their butt. A inline .45 with the right bullet will easily take an elk. They probably worry about someone using a sidelock PRB on elk, and I agree that's way too light.

They could state that in the laws.
