Re: rec's for a truck gun w/ hog in mind
Id go with an M44, M38 or a chinese type 53 carbine. all of which are dirt ass cheap.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
