Well yes, who wouldn't look cool packin' a Rem-Dog? A Remington is, well, cool. I believe we here are all fairly well agreed on that. Real hard on mountain lions, feral pigs, sassy cans and gongs or even a potential bad guy - no doubt.
We, here in North Cali of the black powder pistol and revolver dispensation have a little joke about pulling a '58 Rem or a '60 Colt on car jackers in Oakland (or anywhere) -- and the dudes fall down catatonic out of wonderment and fright and the fantods of WTF -- or at least immediately convert to the church of their choice if they happen to have one handy.
But alas, cool is for school (just made that up). In an actual engagement out on real street, or in the comfort of your own home for that matter, have the courtesy to provide rude-felon criminal assailants the effects of something in the nature of modern weaponry. Believe this: If the s*it hits it won't be like any dam movie anyone ever saw. In verity, such doin's are neither sport nor fashion show.
Now, go buy that Remington, live free and friendly and have a ball.
Additionally, the life you save could be...well...my own.
