We went and looked at guns this past weekend. The main reason for this gun is for protection from Alaskan Brown and Black Bears. I had my sights set on a Marlin 45/70 till we got talking with the sales person. The Marlin really is a powerful gun! Anyway, the sale person sort of talked me into a Remington 870 shotgun. Load it with slugs and it can be just as good/powerful as the 45/70. It’s also about $250 cheaper and lighter to carry. I think the 870 is the way to go now. We’ll be heading back down to Traverse City in 2 weeks. So I’ll probably pick up the 870 then.

Till next time…
