I saw those two screws in the stock, and I was wondering why they needed some much recoil help. Belted magnum. It's a shoulder howitzer. I do love leather. Very nice picture.
Yep. I am betting massive round nosed bullets too...
Is the round thing a spyglass?
I was thinking a flask?
It could be either... but I think it is a flask. Who knows, with old world hunters it could be either.
I think it's a spyglass. A flask would be shaped for a pocket.
As for having "proper gear"...the leather is cool, but "no bueno" in wet climates. And an ammo belt? Besides the weight, is Bullwinkle shooting back? If he's hunting in North America, I would say, "Save some money (expensive ammo) and sweat (they're heavy"} and just bring your 30-06."
Gasp!!!! WL Emery will hear about this Craig, I assure you!!! In fact, I shall PERSONALLY lodge a complaint with the Safari Society!!! The bloody cheek!!!
.30-06? What, you have a death wish?I think those cartridges might be 7mm mag.
I think that the members of the Wehrmacht and Imperial Japanese Army will disaggree with your assessment of the reliable and ever popular 30-06...those on safari in the Okavando Delta or stalking the Yukon Moose in the Yukon territory are free to shoot something withe a belt. I have the name of a orthopaedic surgeon for your shoulder repair and a hearing aid company for the unnecessary muzzle blast. Those of you shooting these belted magnums on for thin-skinned deer and black bears...do you have a small willie? You must be compensating for something!
I'm thinking must be dangerous game.
