    yes he took exception to being shot, I was on my hands and knees looking for those 2 shells while the bear was running up the hill toward me when he was at about 30 yards I remembered the s&w 29 mountain gun on my hip

    Nice looking rifle. If you can mount scope and leaving front and rear sights on I like to sight it in before mounting scope. Hope its a shooter

    Nice looking rifle! In today's tacticool world it's nice to see some single shots getting some love! They are underappreciated IMO.
