ALL AROUND RIFLE AND SIDE ARMS
It has often been said that the all-round rifle has not yet come out. When you hear a statement like this it is nothing but propaganda favoring the different firearms. It has been out ever since the birth of the 32-20.
In this caliber we have at least two makes and the lever and pump action to choose from. My preference is the Winchester 32-20 carbine. It is good on small game such as squirrels and groundhogs yet its bullet has enough velocity and weight to give ft sufficient killing power for deer and black bear, if vitally hit. Even the high-powered rifles will not kill if their bullets miss the vital spot.
The 32-20 will penetrate a good-sized telegraph pole, and this to my notion is powerful enough for most big game at the average killing range. In my judgment the best side arm is the 38 Colt automatic military model pistol, with six-inch barrel. They are very accurate. I have killed squirrels and other small game with mine. It has good penetration, and it will also shoot through a good-sized telegraph pole. They are accurate and powerful enough to hit and kill a bear or deer at fifty yards.
In closing will say that I think these a perfect combination of all-round guns.
