Stretched Pistols

Bolt-action rifles are the standard for accuracy, but the lever-action rifle emblemizes American deer hunting. Lever guns are synonymous with the .30-30 cartridge, but standard pistol cartridges are, within limits, equally effective for deer hunting in lever guns, too. In fact, lever guns chambered for pistol cartridges might be even better choices than the .30-30 for deer hunters who typically shoot 75 yards or less, especially if you are sensitive to recoil.

If you can't handle the recoil of a 30-30, you should probably not be hunting.

What if you can handle both? I own a .30 - 30 Winchester and a Browning 1892 in .44 magnum. Both work very well on deer....the .30 caliber just having a little longer legs.

To trust arms in the hands of the people at large has, in Europe, been be an experiment fraught only with danger. Here by a long trial it has been proved to be perfectly harmless...If the government be equitable; if it be reasonable in its exactions; if proper attention be paid to the education of children in knowledge and religion, few men will be disposed to use arms, unless for their amusement, and for the defence of themselves and their country. Timothy Dwight, Travels in New England and New York [London 1823]
