the simple answer to this question, is i am porbably over obsessed with not hunting with a gun unless i can drive tacks with it. and just before the season opens i got to the range to make shure i am dead on with them. doing this with to many guns would be verry time consuming and costly in ammo. i use the .270 when i am in an area were i can realy rech out and touch somthing. i use the 12 ga when i am hunting in a shotgun only area, or in a dence area were the reality of a long range shot is slim to non. and the .44 mag always is on my hip when hunting. if i go out with a bow this year, and have a real close range shot on a buck, and want to save the bow tag for another time incase the next deer i see is a doe, then i will use the .44 mag. I think that covers my bases realy well, so i see no point in adding another rifel into the mix. i am not a collecter, all my guns serve a purpose. if i see a void that needs to be filled i will go out and buy a gun that fills that void. but untill i feel there is a void i prefure to keep it to the keep it simple method. yes i just might have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) but i feel i owe it to my game to ensure a clean kill, and keeping it simple is just one of the ways i do just that.
