So, I said to my wife......

.......wife, we live out in the country, and you have two horses:

....so, it only seems reasonable that I should buy one of these:

Name:  1886 - 3 and 4.jpg

Size:  41.7 KB

I mean, just in case. Ya know, it could happen. It's a Winchester 1886, 26" octagonal barrel. Chambered for 45-70 Govt.:

I said this to the wife two weeks ago. For some strange reason, she hasn't spoken to me since........

Despite it's age the .45-70 is still one of my favorite cartridges.
1886 is a great rifle too.
Nice horses btw.

LOL,


Actually you will probably need a Barrett 50 bmg, you know just in case the 45-70 won't bring them down on the first round.

Well then you get one of these, but it will probably have to be modified because it is a high capacity weapon.
