    That's not my gun. I used to shoot CAS, and had two of them in .45. Fun times, but it got too expensive.

    Thanks!
    The farthest I've shot a critter was the pronghorn at 203, I have shot steel and paper out to 500 with a .308 barrel on the Striker. I prefer to get as close as possible to game but I'm pretty comfortable shooting at 300 from a good rest. Since the picture was taken I have traded the Striker off and gone back to the break open guns. I just find them less cumbersome to tote around.

    Wow, 300 yards out to 500 yards on paper. That is impressive shooting BobT.

    Nice hardware guys! I have a TC Encore rifle and have been thinking of getting a pistol barrel and grips for it. I'm just not sure what caliber to get.

    Thanks! It's really not much different than shooting a rifle at the same distances, all you need is an accurate gun and a solid rest. The biggest road block I had was making myself believe it could be done, once I overcame that then the rest was downhill. I also shoot a lot of rocks, I have a spot a few minutes from the house I can shoot at rocks a long way out.

    I used the .22 mag in Utah, they consider lions as small game.

    Whoever made that decision hasn't seen one up close.
