Grouse Guns!



Log in to see fewer ads
I will start off by saying, I am officially done with S&W.

With that out of the way, here's what I know...I own the following:

Ruger mk4 22/45 (volquartsen speed parts and suppressor)
Ruger single six
S&W 351PD(in the shop)
S&W K-22(tired)
Kel Tec pmr30

I've owned and gotten rid of(for some reason):
2 lcr 2" .38
2 lcr 3" .38
1 lcr 2" 22wmr(wife still has hers)
1 3 screw single six
1 lcr 3" .22lr

There's a longer list, but I feel I've built a pretty good backstory.

Here's what I'm up against;

Shooting grouse for camp meat on horseback, while deer and elk hunting has become very competitive.
The single six and K-22 are extremely accurate, and I win allot. Having said that, they are kind of heavy to pack around, as my Lew Horton Redhawk NEVER leaves my belt(until I get nervous).

So, I'm not sure I remember the reason for selling the 22lcrx 3", but I'm having second thoughts. I'm also considering the 22mag version(more juice is always good), and maybe a bearcat.

I know that was a bit windy, but I wanted to lay it out for you folks.

What do you think? Other recommendations for a "grouse gun"? True 25yd accuracy on any of the three I mentioned worthy of grouse(bunny/squirrel/small critters)?

Opinions welcome.

Thanks.

22mag will destroy more meat than a 22lr

I carried a Bearcat for several years while I was with the USFS. Many a grouse went in the pot. And a lot of porcupines chewed on their last ponderosa pine.

I looked at the wrangler. I'd say it's in the running for sure.

After much consideration, I decided that I'm going to be looking at all steel guns only. I think in the long run, they'll be more durable.

Bearcat is still an option.

Maybe I need to put my Redhawk on my chest? That would alleviate weight on my belt.
