Well, I admire your wheel guns and them big bullets. Have a couple of those myself. But, for varmints, I do like my XPs and Contenders. Posted ImageThe burgandy one is a 6MM Rem and the blue-black is a 223.Posted ImageAs shown here the Contender is a 17 AH but, it could be anything from a 17 HM2 to a 44 Mag. Using the 17 AH barrel it has tagged prairie dogs out to 289 yds. :D Posted ImageOK, one wheel gun, it's a S&W 647 17 HMR. Squirrels out to 75 yds are a lot of fun. :rolleyes: A17Shooter

I dig that S&W Wheel gun:Funny Thing, I took my 14" .223 Contender to the Squirrel shoot last year.Only fired 2-3 shot's :rolleyes: Put it back in the case and used my Rifle's, I thought I would really dig it for Varmint shooting.Didn't thrill me much, Don't know why :D Sold off the barrel, will replace it with a .357 Max and 23" .223However it will be going back to Cederville next trip as a .223 Rifle.

Is luke Skywalker missing those yet? :) cool shooting irons you have there.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Those aren't Luke's guns. I do have an officially designated "space pistol". It was named by my two daughters back in '84. It is a Wichita MK 40, with an aluminum receiver, a 13" barrel, a left hand operating bolt and a silver fiberglass stock. The caliber is .308, iron sights only. I used it for shooting Unlimited Class IHMSA Silhouette. Yes, it is a bit noisy. :lol: Gary
