Anyone have suggestions or have experience with rifle calibers in a single shot pistol? My dad lost most vision in right eye, so he can't shoot rifle anymore. Right now he's using my brothers .44 colt anaconda with red dot.

I've had 2 Magnum Research Lone Eagle pistols. The first was a .308 with right handed grip and no muzzle brake. The second was a 7mm-08, ambidextrous grip and a muzzle brake.

 

I shoot left handed so the .308 had to go. In comes the 7mm-08. I topped it with a scope. They can be a hand full if you don't hold on but once you figure them out, they're a blast to shoot. No pun intended. I always shot factory ammo through it with good results. How good? 3 shots covered by a dime at 100 yards good. They're incredibly accurate. I used a friends chrono to find that I was still getting 2700 fps at the muzzle.

 

T/C seems to be the only one making hand cannons anymore. I've been considering getting another since I sold my LEP several years ago.

 

Extra caution does need to be used if using in a slug zone. High power is legal state wide in MN as long AS LONG AS IT'S IN A PISTOL.

Will be picking up a contender pistol in 30/30 with a 30mm ultra dot on Monday. This should be a pretty nice gun out to the range my dad will be comfortable with, under 75 yards or so.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution

    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
