    I've been in a vehicle where a 45 acp was fired negligently by the driver with the windows up [ winter in NE ]. I hear just fine. With a window down, even less problem with hearing loss would be the result. It's not recommended, but if it's my hearing or dying, well, is there really any choice to be made to begin with?

    Ya gotta do what ya gotta do to survive.
    As far as hearing goes, a lot depends on where the gun is when fired. At head level its going to hurt. I was at an outdoor range once and I forgot my ear muffs so stupidly I used some foam ear plugs. My gun didn't bother me so much but the guy next to me made my ears ring for three days.
    Now I find myself saying what? What did you say? What?

    New Lever Gun

    Having trouble doing it with the iPad so, I've gone to the computer.
    So, my LGS purchased quite a few rifles, shotguns and, ammo from an Estate Sale. I picked up this Rossi M92 in .454 Casull for $325.00 Out the Door! I was able to get the ammo at $17.00/box!

    I have a Ubertti 1873 in .357 short stroked and slicked up by Cody Coneger. Smooth as butter. Used for shooting SASS. Also have a Henry .22 for plinking.

    Move that front sling clamp as close to the stock as you can from where it is. In that position, it's too easy to stress the mag tube.

    The big .454 is one of the funnest calibers to reload. There are two hand gun calibers I LOVE to reload, one is the .454 Casull and the other is the .45 Colt . There are just so many components and so many ways to go with them. I consider the .454 Casull to be one of the truly great and innovative calibers developed in my lifetime.

    My first "deer" gun was a Glenfield .30-30, bought by a lowly Airman who had to take out a $200 loan to buy the $199 gun. For those who don't know, Glenfield was the "economy" model of a Marlin .30-30. It came with a 4X scope. It was a fine firearm for its price and did not disappoint me at all. It dropped a few middle-Georgia deer for me with no issues. I sold it to buy a .30-06.

    I've never had a need for a lever-action .30-30 since, but if there was ever a regret for selling a firearm, that Glenfield is it.
