    7.62X51 CZ550 Varminter w/Kevlar stock, extended Picatinny rail, Harris HRBS 6"-9" Bipod, 6-30X50mm Bushnell Elite 6500 Mildot scope, high Leupold 30mm rings, 10rd magazines, Gemtech HVT suppressor, Blackhawk SAW sling. Alternate optics, ATN440 and Trijicon TX30. BUIS from MI. Hornady receipe for 208gr AMAX over Varget. Still supersonic at 1,000yds.

    12ga Remington 870 Desert Recon II, w/Knoxx Stox from Blackhawk w/5rd holder on stock, extended magazine for 8+1 in 2 3/4", Trijicon TX30, and speed sling from Houts Enterprises. Two bandoleers of 55rds, one with Remington TAC8, and one with Polywad 2 3/4" Quik-Shok presegmented slugs...

    .45acp 3rd Generation Glock G21 and G30, both w/factory night sights. Magazines are factory 13rd (with some extended to 17 rds via Arredondo kits) and 10rd G30 mags extended to 11rds via Pearce +2 extensions. Both wear laser/lights- G21 has TLR-2, and G30 has M6X. Both use same holsters, with exception of ankle holster for G30... Ammo is PDX1. Barrels are LWD threaded, for my Gemtech .45acp Blackside suppressor.

    IF I have to use the shotgun, or make any "noise," I"m in deep kimchee...

    THESE are my "heavy hitters."

    The Model 70 is a late 1980s Super Express. Nothing special but it groups well.

    The Model 1895 is an original Winchester produced in 1904, the year that the .405 was introduced. They don't make whitetail big enough for it down here but it indisputably works in them.

    Forgot about my circa 1887 Winchester Model 1886 .45-90 which ought to qualify as a "heavy hitter." Whitetail here aren't big enough for it either but it flattens them effectively.

    Well, my heavy hitters are my 12 gauge (short range), my .44 magnum for handguns, and my 7.62X51 Springfield would be my heavy rifle. Until I take up bison hunting, I think I'm packing plenty of stopping power here.

    For a Heavy Hitter I like my Interarms mark X in 458 Win Mag with a 510 grain bullet.
    Peace is that brief, glorious moment in history, when everybody stands around reloading.

    I camp a lot with the family I always pack My Marlin Guide Gun since we live in Bear and Moose country. A .45-70 govt is a heavy hitter for sure and it kicks like a mule!

    My Rem 870 and Winchester 30 06 are my 'heavy hitters'. (And they're fun to shoot too.)

    I was going to say it is situation dependent and say that long range would be my AR15, medium range would be my 12 with 00 buck, and short range would be my 40 SW Sigma....

    But I think HotGuns is kinda right. Awfully hard to CCW a fifty cal though...

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.
