Yeah, cuz mouth breathers are the type to use "obsolete". Look, this clames guy is the dumbest sumbitch to ever post here, and that's saying a lot. Hell, he makes you look smart.

I love shooting my grandpas old 30-30. My only knock is I wish you could get a scope on it.

Hunted with one for five years and hated it. When I got my .270 the difference was night and day. So much more accurate especially at 200 yards.


You hated the 30-30 because you were trying to shoot distances that the gun was not designed for. You should be mad at yourself for not doing your homework prior to buying a gun.

I'm not claiming to be an expert on anything, I'm just saying that it's more likely user error on that guys part than gun error. Poor gun selection by the shooter is not the gun's fault.

This:

Because no one hunts in the woods anymore. Everyone hunts from a box stand because all the damn woods have been cut. There are no more days of hunting out of a rickety ole wooded lean up on a white oak ridge.


plus this:

quote:

problem with the winchester is putting a scope on it.


Fewer "woods" and more hunting over lanes and plots, with 200+ yard shots. So many people anymore don't hunt anything but a lane and/or a plot.

I grew up hunting with a Model 94 Trapper, and will likely take it some this year, I've killed a sack full of deer with it. Excellent for hunting from horse.

combine with limited skills and lack of practice...

i am amazed at how man hunters don't practice realistic shots..

Mouth breathers sometimes flip open a dictionary but that doesn't change the sound they make. Sucks you can't make a decent 200 yard shot with a 30-30 but that's a reflection of your skill not anyone else's. Dumb is talking about something you haven't shot in 20 years.

I'm not dumb enough to try it.

Good grief you're dumb. Look, do you have a disability you're not disclosing? You really need to tell us.

You're just lazy then, it sure a hell isn't difficult with even a little practice. That explains you whining about a shot with a gun you haven't used in 20 years. Only thing you need to be told is to go to the range more often and not be such a poor shot.

Like every other hunter who chooses a better tool for the job, right?

There was never a reason to shoot that out dated POS caliber and gun. I'm not an actor in westerns.

Better =/= the 30-30 isn't capable. You don't have a point anymore on this topic. You can't make the shot, I understand that, that's your problem. Those of us who still use and practice with the caliber are free to disregard your opinion on the matter because you don't have the experience that counts.

Ironic.

You can say this all you want. It won't change anything. I'd never try it.

I never said anything otherwise. People use obsolete shite all the time. More power to them. Doesn't change the fact that the stuff is obsolete and that you have a learning disability.

I leaned how to shoot, you obviously need crutches. Your opinion doesn't count when it comes to a platform you haven't shot in 20 years. Simple.

I'm a damn good shot with my .30-30 and I would never even attempt this.

You need to learn how to shoot and practice more.

No, I think it's just the fact that this is not a good shot to take with a .30-30.
