    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    What? No .454 Casull?

    I found the kick to be about the same as the 50AE Desert Eagle. Didn’t shoot them at the same time, so maybe not a good comparison.

    I’m good with a .357. It’s a nice noise maker to deter wild animals, and if worse comes to worse, it goes in the bear’s mouth before my head. Can’t imagine a bear would be hungry after a pistol goes off in it’s mouth.

    I'm far from an expert but I have done some reading and I would recommend something .338 or larger, maybe .350 or larger for the Cape Buffalo, I hear they don't go down easy.

    Buffalo , Bear and Elk need a heavy hitter.

    See .375 H&H

    It kills on one end and maims on the other.

    45-70 ,, Though anything can be taken with a .22.

    I prefer massive energy for large and dangerous game.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
