    Wow, what warm welcome thanks y'all! Indeed women here are not quite as ladylike as I am used to, thankfully I plucked my wife from the south before moving up here.

    I am going to go out on a limb here and try to post pics without photo bucket, hopefully it works, and yes I did read the tutorial on the right way to do it with photo bucket.


    My new baby: Browning BAR Longtrac in 30-06. Probably a bit much for coyotes, but just right for the Mule deer hunt I am going on next week. Can hardly wait! Now I just need to finish working up a load for her. Anyone have recommendations on a good place to get reloading supplies in Issaquah or Bellevue that is reasonably priced?


    Here is a 225lb hog I shot with a 12ga slug at 75yds down near Houston. Ugly and tough critter. Cleaned and kept the skull, just can't decide what to do with it.


    Finally, here is the second coyote I had ever shot...also with a 12ga slug, this one at maybe 10yds, made a huge mess of the far shoulder! (Have pics, but a bit gruesome to show)

    Again, thanks for the warm welcome, will definitely stick around and see if I could learn something! Or teach something, I'm a huge nerd when it comes to my hobbies so this forum has got me all excited about hunting/shooting! (Note the time, I should be asleep right?!)

    -James

    P.S. Finally got to my computer to post these pics correctly. Let me know what y'all think! Looking for good places to hunt around here, definitely still have the itch.

    Welcome to the site. I love my Browning (BLR though, not a BAR). Excellent guns.

    Didn't realize there was a lever gun that took magazines, that's brilliant! I can see why you would love it. All the class and handling of a levergun and the ability to be chambered in a modern caliber. Hmm, that might have to go on "the list" of someday purchases (after winning the lotto of course!)

    Yep, I love lever guns and having the mag with a 308 is nice. I have the takedown version, which is good for easy transport also, especially if I'm riding.

    That sounds like an awesome lever gun! This BAR is my first Browning, but I have a strong feeling it will not be my last. We will see what my wife thinks about that. :)
