    I guess I had forgotten about the 30-30 and I own one.

    You're probably right. I could do that as I reload both. I probably have four or five platforms that shoot the 22 Hornet, but always looking for interesting platforms in the 22 Hornet. Currently, I have revolver, bolt actions, break barrel, and combination platforms. You know how it is... we always need one more!

    I guess the "rimmed" cartridge of the 22 hornet just didn't feed as well in the pump and lever guns.

    Looks like it would have been a perfect platform for the 22 Hornet round.
  5. Thanks KahrMan, but I really would like to locate one locally. I like to hold the gun in my hands before I lay down my hard earned cash. I have only bought one used gun sight unseen and it turned out ok... but don't want to push my luck.
  6. I've always wanted a Silver Snipe in 20 gauge for bird hunting. I'm not sure what the model number is on it. A friend had one in the mid '60s that he let me shoot. I have wanted one ever since.

    Did they make a Savage 99 in 22 Hornet?
  8. I do have a 22 Mag with a 20 gauge barrel slung underneath it...Savage 24. I also have one in 22 Hornet/20 gauge. Maybe either one would make a good coyote gun?
  9. Not much talk and only one pic posted by Kahrman on the subject of Dove Shoots/hunting in the middle Tennessee area. Is the dove population down this year or just not many people dove hunting?
  10. Thanks for all the information from everyone. I have a Handi in .243, but have had bypass surgery where my sternum was split open. I'm concerned with recoil, at least for 6-9 months, maybe longer. There's quite a bit of difference in the recoil of the .243 over the .223.
  11. Who was running around with a 5 gallon bucket full of corn? Did someone actually do this?
  12. Hey KahrMan, that is one fancy Beretta! That thing should have auto pilot on it, so that all you'd have to do is point it in their direction! LOL Don't feel bad, most us suck at hitting doves, if the truth be known. I haven't been yet. I had a tripple bypass on Jun 20th, so I had better leave my 12 gauge and probably my 20 gauge in the closet. I have a Mossy pump gun in .410, so I might be able to shoot it. But haven't had a place to go, so maybe I won't shoot even the .410!
  13. Does anyone have any opening day dove hunting reports? Good, bad, or limited out?
  14. Yeah, that .357 May is probably #2 right behind the .22 Hornet. I imagine my 24C Camper's Companion in .22LR/20 Gauge, with 20" barrels is probably #3. I've been working on getting these guns for years.
  15. Ron, I realize this post has been on here a while, but like many others, I hang out on different sites for a while and move around. Sorry you missed the .357 Mag. I like mine, but my prized Savage 24 is a 24V-D in a .22 Hornet/20 Gauge.
