    Cause of that recoil? Could end up with a nice cut....

    I heard it's a hell of a kick and not a pleasant all day shooter...I still want one though...watch that movie "Wind River"

    I suppose if a bear is charging you that recoil doesn't really matter....

    Yeah man I've spent a bit of time behind one. Pretty lively. Great fun though. I'd own one for sure. I'd go a red dot or peep site personally

    Skinner sights... you wont regret it.

    Very good company to deal with, and looks much better on a lever gun
