Currently, my .45 & the 870 12g. are my "heavy hitters". Need to upgrade that....I'm looking at 10mm's and would love to add a rifle to the lineup.
7mm Rem Mag is the hardest hitting one I've got in the stable now
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

My Kimber .45 is always my favorite, but for a heavy hitter, I would have to say this in 7.62
