I recall for some reason you had an eye for the .44 mag in a rifle or carbine.

Going back many years, while hunting whitetail deer, in the nearby mountains along the Mass. border, friend had 300 acres up there, I had borrowed a ruger carbine in that caliber, with hand loads. The peak was somewhere around 1000 feet above sea level, and the weather bitter cold as in single digits. I was still hunting on the ground and observing an old logging road, a nice 8 point buck came out and I was sighted in on him, pulled the trigger and nothing, well I did get the click, firing pin hit, but it did not go off, then it did, some sort of delayed reaction, buck was gone, I had figured it was the cold. In those days, finances were really tough, low pay job, did not even own a firearm, used to borrow dads Winchester "94, and or anyone elses available, always made sure to clean and oil etc., funny thinking back, who in heck would let you "borrow" a firearm today LOL !

I liked the "94 in .32 special, not long range but just fine for most conditions here. The ruger in a carbine was an influence, I just had to go out and get an Iver-Johnson M1 Carbine in stainless steel, seemed like a great home defense tool and nice plinker, I used to hunt with it, just not long range, .30 carbine though not the best penetrator, still went through an 8" hardwood tree at 75 yards, made me think back to that .44 in a ruger carbine, always wondered which was the better caliber, but actually, they"re both pretty good.

Well as for borrow a gun I let people do it all the time on my place when hunting on my place. I have friends who have kids or grand kids and they need a rifle to hunt with so I let them use one I have but then I collect them. As for a Carbine I have an old M-1 Carbine 30cal that I like and it has dropped a few deer over the year. I would have preferred a 44mag in a carbine but then I do prefer the semi auto over a lever gun

At least some things don't change in some areas, I suppose it still takes place around here, but back then and even now it was always greatly appreciated as it put food on the table if you had a successful hunt, only trouble with a borrowed rifle, you need to get used to it and how it shoots first. I'll bet that made your day, who would not be happy with a '94 !

I have a target range close to the house so making sure the person knows the rifle is easy and I do make sure they know how it shoots etc. The 94 is the 2nd one we have in the house. We also have a 94 in the common 30/30 with a scope on it

Thats a good thing, then no surprises in the field. There's a small saw mill up near the other place we have, and the owner has a nice reloading set up right in his office, with a back door range right out of the office, just has to swing the door open, it was the place you might recall the post subject recently of farm trucks, was that place in the photo with my old F600. So when he's not "saywering" he's likely reloading. He also keeps a keg on tap, the man enjoys his beer to no end.
