i don't do much small game hunting, but every once in a while I'll take the winchester model 12 .410 out for a walk int he woods, incase i kick up a rabbit or squirrel. My father hads the mathcing .410 and 12 gauge(my turkey gun). I really wish we could get the 20 gauge, but im told thats a different model.
I shot my first turkey with a 20 gauge single shot, not sure about the model and all that. We have the matching .410 for that too.

Something nice about having matching guns in different gauges/caliber. I think he has 3 different matching pairs.

I bought my son a Savage 94F in .17 mag. I steal it every chance I get!! Talk about accurate and fun to shoot. Hot round also.

I went for a two hour walk on Friday afternoon (7 Oct) with my faithful Brno 22LR and nailedseventeen rabbits, mainly in the head, and put two positive hits into a fox just on dark near some blackberry. Wish I had my Ruger 223. This is the first of seventeen bunnies.





Back in July I did something a little different. I went after rabbits one windy afternoon with my Marlin 1895SS 45-70 with handloaded 405gn cast lead slugs doing 1300ft/s. Five shots, five drilled bunnies.





And finally I just love using my Ruger M77 223 with Speer 52gn HP on feral cats and foxes.
