Hey all! It’s been a while since I’ve posted. We are moving and getting ready for our wedding coming up soon. Deer season is either here or coming soon in the U.S. For those of you that are hunters, I would love to see your setup for this year!!

I do not hunt, but I have quite a few friends who do. I think it is our proximity to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan...but when it comes to hunting season, my friends start playing this Da Yoopers song a bit too many times. It is a bit of a tradition now.

If I was to go deer hunting...and I can't because I have not taken the hunter's course and have the needed licenses (much to the chagrin of a few of my hunting buddies), this would be my deer rifle...a Savage Axis II in .30-06. This is an older photo dating back to 2015..

From what I hear Savage makes really solid stuff, especially for the money. It’s what pretty much everyone I know uses.

Edit: also, you should take the class! It’s not too bad and even if you never bag anything, hunting is something I think is healthy to experience, even therapeutic for some people. It sounds like you already have people who are willing to take you out, which is great.

I know I could never pull the trigger...even if for food. I know my limitations. Doesn't stop me from having an armory however. With that said, missing IPSC a lot. Covid 19 put the kibosh on that this year.

Got her sighted in today. 100 yards. Not bad for a windy day in my opinion.

Hope you don’t mind me asking what division?
Me, I happily dabble in Classic and Revolver.

Down in my neck of the woods most of 2nd. half of the season was saved. Nationals and maybe half of normal calendar has been shot.

Revolvers are just so cool to me. I used to have a fair amount of skill with a J frame but I have not shot one in forever now.

I want a pre-lock all steel 357 J Frame pretty badly. One in a 3” barrel or longer would be a perfect hunting companion.

I don't think they made J-frames in .357 before the mid 1990's and I think they already had the child safety lock.

  I've never been deer hunting but I wouldn't mind taking a wild hog or two if it ever stops raining down here.  Probably take my Marlin lever action in .30-30.  I haven't got any pictures of it. Maybe take something later.
 
Chacko, take the class.  They're usually a lot of fun.  I used to be a volunteer instructor for the Florida Hunter Safety courses. I always enjoyed the 1940's cartoon style of safety film we ran in the class.  The best part was when the old hunter tells the kid, "Now Timmy, you need to be sure of your shot because you don't want anybody to say you were skybusting."  Then Timmy says, "Skybusting!?  What's skybusting? Then the old hunter says, "Well, Timmy, that's when you're shooting holes in the sky because the birds are out of range or you're not leading them properly."  I've still got a friend from back then and we sometimes greet each other with one or the other of us saying, "Skybusting? What's skybusting?

No worries old Lefty.

I tend to rotate my rig each year to make things interesting. I shoot in the Revolver, Classic, and Production divisions.

This is my IPSC rotation.

S&W M&P 9 mm.

Norinco 1911A1 in 45 APC.
IMG_9842A by Chako, on Flickr

S&W 586 357 Magnum with Silhouette front sight on a 6" barrel.
IMG_0281A by Chako, on Flickr

Of all of them, I really like the 586 the best. I had a lot of fun sourcing an IPSC compatible holster for it though...and the speed loaders were fun to source as well in Canada.

Alan K...I will give it some consideration.  :hatsoff:

I was not happy with the plastic grips the Norinco came with. I wanted something a bit flashier and of mother of pearl.

Typo alert. Should be 45 ACP. I hate how I can't fix errors on this forum.

Cool selection! No magwell in the 1911 I see, tip my hat Sir!
My STI Trojan also comes without one; just as JMB intented.

Thank you. Not a big fan of the look of a Magwell on the 1911. Mind you, I once pinched the heck out of my palm once doing a quick mag change during the heat of competition. I did that only once.  :D

I also have a pair of single action armies in .22  LR and Colt 45, and a .22 LR Buckmark Hunter.

The full hunter´s course in The Netherlands will set you back about 3,000 dollars. And then you still need a local hunter´s license (150 dollars a year) and find a landowner willing to lease hunting rights at an affordable price.

But I guess I will never hunt game or fowl. It´s just too expensive.

The only hunting I do is dragonflies, with my camera.

Wow! That is crazy expensive. I imagine that acquiring firearms with which to hunt there is more expensive as well.
