The 454 Casull round manufactured by Hornady (see http://www.hornady.com/) can also be used in my new Taurus for the purpose of making those black bear kills. Although we are opposed to affirmative action, each member of my militia will do all he can to kill an equal proportion of white bear – that is if any should show up in Western North Carolina.

The ever-expanding gun collection will require a lot of time at the gun range to keep my shooting skills honed. So, I guess that means I have to buy a good skeet gun. And since I don’t yet have a Browning on this list, the new Cynergy Camo in Mossy Oak Break-Up is a rather obvious choice. Naturally, I will get the new 12-gauge version with the capability of taking 3 ½ - inch shells. Some people may think the MSRP of $2282 is a little much but I have connections. Doubters should check out the following link before making any harsh moral judgments:

Every time I substantially update my gun collection, I make sure to add at least one gun that has no specific purpose. The sole criterion for the one useless addition to the collection is that it’s pretty. This year, several contenders have emerged. For instance:

1. The L.C. Smith Double Barrel by Marlin is very pretty. It can be viewed on the following link:

2. The Benelli Legacy 12-gauge shotgun is also very pretty. It can be viewed by clicking on the link below:

3. And, finally, for some odd reason I’m starting to take a liking to the looks of the Benelli R1 rifle chambered in .300 Win Mag. To see whether you think it’s pretty, click on this link:

After you’ve had a chance to review my prospective choices, give me some help deciding which one to purchase by emailing me with either “1”, “2”, or “3” in the subject line. After all the help I’ve given readers looking for firearms, it’s time they did the same for me.
