Yes!!!!!!!!!!! You are!! Hey guys we found the last remaining 30-30 shooter alive on the planet! How long has it been 20-30 years since they have commercially made ammo for it?? Didnt you get the memo that all of us hunters have all switched over to the brand new 30-06 round? They just brought it out this year, thats why its called the 30 (caliber) 06 (the year they brought it out 2006)

Airsoft Dude,

You ain't the only one to hunt with a 30-30! I love mine and won't part with it. I have a Marlin 30AS with plain iron sights on it and it does the job. Readwhat I got with my Marlin 30-30a few days ago!

Okay, it wasn't a big deer, but still - a 75 yard shot with open sights in the brush. Ya gotta love the quick handling of the 30-30. [8D]

Haven't you been reading the internet? 30-30s can no longer kill deer. You need some kind of mag, short mag, super short mag, or ultra mag now.

There is this new Hornady ammo LeverEv-something that will kill deer deader that the old stuff used to. If you don't believe me, ask the 3 deer that I have shot with my Marlin 336T. Here is one that I shot a couple of weeks ago. He looks deader to me.

30-30, it is not my choice, but there are many being used! Within its limitations, it is a great choice!

Retreiverman. Be careful, he may be faking his demise.

I really don't think he could fake that much blood loss.LOL!
One myth that I have been able dispel is that rubber tipped bullets bounce off game. The LeverEvs DO penetrate skin on both sides of a deer.

I have a safe full of guns in various calibers from 243 to 375 H&H and many in between, and I CHOOSE to hunt with a 30-30. I hunt in east Texas pineywoods where most of my shots are under 75 yards. It is the perfect caliber for me and my situation.
