    Same here. I've got plenty of .357 stored up, and a lever gun would be a perfect compliment to a Smith 686 side arm and an SP101 pocket carry. Unfortunately/fortunately, every time I get ready to do it, I go out and shoot my AR and fall in love again. Nearly the same price point, 30 vs 10 rounds, can I plink golf balls or frozen water bottles at 150 yds with a lever gun? Yeah, but probably not as consistently.

    That being said you would be better served with a lever gun in .44mag. It's cheaper to shoot, ammo is way easier to find for .44mag as well. I use lever guns around the farm all the time & use .30-30 more than anything else. It is capable of much longer shots than the .45lc or even the .44mag.

    If you want a pistol caliber lever go .44mag or .357. If you want to step up a little in power go with a .30-30. ..............45lc isn't worth it unless you're collecting, if you want a useable 'tool gun' go with something else.
    True...if your not a reloader. The OP should buy himself a set of 45 dies to go with his reloading equipment and the 45 Colt is well worth it.

    OP - I find the recoil of my Marlin 336 in .30-30 to be very reasonable. If you don't already have a revolver in .357 or .45 LC, then I'd suggest a true rifle caliber.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.
