    Around home and woodswalking choice

    Been open carrying around the homestead and woods wandering lately. My choice mostly has been a Traditions 1873 in .357 magnum carried in a Triple K Keegan crossdraw holster. Very comfortable to carry and I kind of get a kick out of carrying the old styled piece.

    I agree, old school woods walks are the best!

    Good choice.

    I think a good 158 grain sp in .357 is good medicine for just about anything you run in to short of a grizzly bear.

    I like it.

    I kick myself for not picking up a Ruger Single-Six in .357 Mag that came my way but I let pass some years back.

    Yeah not much I will see in this neck of the woods the .357 wont handle. Biggest two threats these days are two legged and coyotes which have gone way over populated the past couple years. Which reminds me I need to take .22 magnum out to the barn and sit in the loft and peg a few more or the b*****ds, been hearing way to much at night lately, need to make them fear my property again.

    Around home and woodswalking choice

    I’m in the High Desert so although I don’t have a large amt. of property my house backs into Nat.l Forrest land and a golf course so we get bobcats, Javelinas, and snakes. I have a 6.5” stainless Taurus Judge which gets 2 Snakeshot, 2 rds. Of Hornady Critical Defense Triple Defense, and one Buffalo Bore 240Gr...it’s st my back door...and since I walk Cpl. Boris. Between 6:15 and 6:45-7:30 I carry it in a simply rugged chest rig( and my Ham Radio as well-with a Wip Antenna mounted to my motorized Wheelchair) we see a lot of Snakes and Javs like this am we saw a family of 5 but we avoided them). A few years ago when we had more property 2 towns over I had to shoot one and two weeks later a Bobcat since In both places we are near the river....

    Since I live in the city, my "around the house" is just my EDC (currently a ruger LC9s with a Crimson Trace laser loaded with 124gr GD or HST). When I'm in the woods, I like my 4-inch S&W 686 loaded with 158 gr JHP. I'm in the southeast, so no big bears or ungulates to worry about. Feral dogs are probably my most likely threat. I have been looking for a Ruger Vaquero in .45LC as a woods gun instead of the S&W, though!
