So I was watching Moonshiners last night... (Rifle Thread)


Dude shot a boar with a lever action rifle, has all the markings on the rifle... anyways, the rifle looked bad arse and I'm thinking about putting it pretty high up on my wish list. Anyone know if that was a henry rifle or something else?

Did you catch the part where the narrator said "A sow is a female boar"?

Marlin and Winchester are the most popular in the big bore market

i have a buddy that hunts with a marlin 30-30...he loves it...academy has a mossberg lever action...henry's are 100% american made...bolts and everything...


the lever action "cowboy" rifle is on my short list as well...

what is bad arse about the guy on moonshiners is that he uses steel sights and that's it...that rifle prolly never seen a scope...

Hell no. In .30-30 or .35 they are very soft shooters.

The big bore one will rock your shite though.

Whenever I kill with my 45-70, I have to say to myself, "This is gonna hurt you alot more than me."

The 336 is credited as number two in all-time leader in U.S. high-powered rifle sales, after the Winchester Model 1894.


from wiki

my buddy got in an argument with a coworker cause he was making fun of the lever action 30/30 as a deer hunting rifle...

my fried came back with a good argument...out west, how many buffalo were killed with these exact rifles?

its just fine for deer...
