    I don't think a new one would be an upgrade. It probably wouldn't have the mag cutoff, would be lawyered up for idiots, and probably wouldn't be "sweet", it would just be a wimpy 12 just, trying to...

    Put up two birds at once, only tried for one and connected well. Didn't try for the second, as I knew I'd have a tough time finding the first one. Got some help from a guy and his son, also...

    I feel bad about shooting them in the off season to stay in practice now. I guess I'll have to mirror the daily limit here of two.

    Good thing I use a Bee Bee gun to hunt them.

    I thought it looked pretty interesting too. I don't have anyplace with a huge range, so what the .17WSM offers is perfect to me. You're pretty much looking at point blank zero out to 250 yards.

    Every game animal is a trophy to me, and I can't stand the standard hunting magazines with their emphais on rack size of deer.

    Just my opinion, YMMV.
