I think i am ready to buy a side loading lever gun. Most likely a marlin. It would be a mew gum for 800 or less. Looking at a 357 since i have a s&w in 357 mag, or a 44 or a 45 70. Would be used mostly for plinking. Could be for some hunting in western Oregon. Who has them and has advise to which rifle and caliber and why? Also may get a 44 mag revolver instead but right now these are what I am looking into.
