My opinion of what is practical has changed many times in the last 40 years . Turkey and coyote hunting have been the biggest influence on my present evaluation what I need for practical sportin' arms . I have stopped shooting the big bore revolvers just because I don't want to risk any more hearing loss . I would rather hear the ''spit n drum'' than shoot the Colt .
