Default I Won't Be Getting The .45

That deal sort of went away. I thought it would be a great deer rifle, but I would be restricted to deer and bear. We have to use a .50 as a minimum here for elk.

Maybe for the better though. The new deal will be for the new Accura MR. I like the looks of it better, and for my timber still hunting. It should be perfect, and the elk option is open now too. Plus a little bigger hole for bears.

Ya Muley you make sence! I for one have no need for a .45, the .50 will do as good if not better and you'll have more options with accessories.
The new Accura Mountain Rifle looks like a nice MLer, be sure to give us a report when you get er.

Oh I bet he will too, but when I look to buy something I always read the reports from all the buyers that leave comments about it. You may find that there's a bunch who like it and then some who hate it. It may to too light, too short, it wont shoot this good or that, ect or vice versa. I like to hear all sides of it from everyone, then I'll make my decesion.

I'll give one, but the gun won't be available until April or so.

I tried talking him out of the 45 when he first brought it up. No no Pete, you don't want a 45, they are a disadvantage, no one wants these things, they don't sell.

Ohhhh but im old and wimpy, i cant handle the recoil blah blah blah.
