Walk softly when replying to this guys, please. I wanted to share with you all the comments that I got from a fellow hunter yesterday. I want to first say that this gentleman is a friend. He's hunted for 30+ years, hunted all over the world, and has a gun collection out the azz. Yesterday, we ran into each other and got talking hunting which lead into the next deer season. He made the comment that he was going to purchase a new PCR gun in 44-40. His exact comment was that now he would be able to shoot a deer at "almost 300 yards". I told him that I wasn't an expert on ballistics, but that I didn't think he'd really improve over the range of his slug gun. He assured me that he "knew" what he was talking about and that he'd be able to shoot at long ranges with this gun. I tried to politely convince him other wise, but according to him, I don't know what I'm talking about. He verified the point that I've said all along. Joe Public is going to mistakenly assume that these guns are long range rifles. Heck even some very experienced hunters are obviously going to believe this as well, as my conversation proved. My neutral position on this topic is now starting to slight to the opposition of these guns, simply based on the perception aspect.
