    Mas, I just read your artrical in BHM An economical battery of guns for the backwoods home Issue #114 and am happy to say it looks like I'm covered except for a high powered rifle. I do have a Mini 14 in .223 but nothing for deer size game. I do have a Remington Express 12 gauge shotgun set up for HD with a light and extended mag loaded with #1 buck. Do you think the shotgun, loaded with either slugs or 00 buck, would work if I had to take deer size game? By the way I live between Live Oak and Lake City so I am in your neigborhood.

    With good sights and slugs that are accurate out of YOUR gun's barrel, the shotgun will do for up to 100 yards. Make sure you've got the trajectory and point of aim/point of impact absolutely nailed down.

    Good luck,
    Mas
