srspower: You don't want to use pistol cartridges for hunting, way to much of a
trajectory and nothing like enough range. A l,ittle .17hmr rimfire would
out perform a .357 magnum lever action in the field let alone a .222 .223
Bill Blinky: I know pretty much zero about firearms. However this was an enjoyable &
informative video. Actually I was quite surprised at how quiet it was on
the shooting range. I expected a loud discharge. To be honest with you, I'm
not familar with the phrase 'bug out' and will go and Google it.
jeff bloom: how accurate is the scoped rifle?
Michael Elliot: I have that baby in 44 mag. Awesome and deadly accurate.
Darth Glenamus: ROSSIE
Tom Nelson: I'm trying to decide between a 357 Magnum bolt action (Ruger) or a 357
Magnum Lever Action rifle.
Hashmountain: I own the Marlin 45-70 guide gun, a great weapon but the ammo is made of
gold judging by the prices.
WanderingBarbarian: I enjoyed this vid. I love lever actions and this only encouraged me more
to look more deeply into the 44 mag or 357 mag rifles... especially since
you have the ability to feed a pistol and a rifle with the same ammo...not
to mention you can use the 38 spl or 44 spl loads as well. It's definitely
a great option in a survival/bug out situation-dependable rifle and not as
intimidating. Thanks again, keep up the great work!
roderray: I have a marlin golden 39A My dad bought it in '65. I also have a marlin
.35 cal as well as a .30 .30 I have killed a lot of game with all but the
.30 .30 I bought it from my uncle , it has never been fired. When my
grandson gets old enough to start hunting it will be his rifle. Great guns,
thanks for the vid,
farmmur: I bought a Winchester 30/30 way back when I was 16. Since then I have
bought other rifles, but I always end every deer season using that old
Winchester. I am 64 now and the fascination of a different caliber is not
there anymore but I still love the hunt. I am now selling some of my guns
and giving the others to my grandkids except the 30/30, a muzzleloader,
a side by side double shotgun and a Marlin 39a 22. That is all you really
need to hunt with.
MrAwsomeshot: marlin 336 in .35 rem was my first gun. its been passed down from grandpa
to mom to me. I still load for it and carry it in the bush.
cads2880: i have a Marlin 30-30 and i simply LOVe this rifle. very accurate, good
knocking fire power at med range, good mag capacitie. i realy like lever
Orka DRLJAČA: obvious question : why the gold triger?(i mean is it real gold?) ofc, it
dosent look tactical or how you say, militant
GOBRAGH2: Ever have any unexpected firing from a lever action, since the rounds sit
on top of each other in the tube? I know there are ammo tip options, but
its a safety concern that was brought to my attention. I'm interested in
getting a center fire lever action because rim fire is tough to find where
Smoggdoesminecraft: 30-06 for survival? Or to be more accurate, take down?
gageoninja: Now would a Red dot halo sight be better on one of these guns? I can't
really see myself with a scope on a smaller rifle like these marlins or
other lever action guns.
USCisgay: no way.... if crap hit the fan and that is all you had, then yes. but
rifles are not ideal for home protection. they will go through walls to
easy and you could end up hitting somebody you didnt intend to. I shot a
30/30 through 1/2 bullet proof glass at 100 yards. A shotgun with a high
brass waterfowl load is the best for home defense
Thomas Fennell: Winchester 94 30-30 is an all around rifle. A Marlin 336 30-30 is just as
good. Either one would be suitable for personal defense as well as hunting
MrRexquando: I have never had a "take down" firearm but maybe a good idea for survival.
MrJake985: Make that Boar. Sorry for the typo.
Foxroe: Because the barrel is longer, the gases are trapped slightly longer and the
bullet will build up more velocity than it would in a pistol. So, the
bullet retains more energy during flight. That said, you only get about 50
yards more out of firing a pistol round out of a rifle, but you'll deliver
more "punch" with a rifle at pistol ranges (not as much as a real rifle
round of course, but magnum pistol rounds are no slouches). Check out
hickock45's channel; plenty of lever gun vids!
Rudedogma: @redlegagent You "action" the rifle by turning it on its side. With a
little practice it's not too difficult.
topcowboyfan1963: I've got the 336 cs in 30-30 w/scope. Man, I love that rifle!
brooks steff: why are you scared. and nah 80 yard it would be freaked.
therainbowbus: 125 yards!??...I can hit a golf ball 280 yards!!!!!
keverc: I love my Winchester 94 Ranger .30-30. Mine has a top mounted scope because
it has angled ejection. It is what I hunt with here in florida. For a SHTF
not my first choice that is why I hav the AR and the mini 14. As far as
home defense once again not my first coice thats why I have the mossberg
pump and my beretta 92D in handy spots. But bont get me wrong my 94 is one
of my favs. Hell I love them all..lol..
falcon02012: 30-30 win rifle can hold 6 rounds plus 1 for total of 7, not to mention it
is good up to 350-500 yards, as for the power 30-30 can deliver 2000 ft.
lbs which make it more powerful than 357 mag (1250 ft. lbs) or 44 mag(1450
ft. lbs) or 7.62x39(1653 ft. lbs), 223 (1545 ft. lbs).
banatserbia: 30/30 is the cheapest
astrogoat: The Marlin 30-30 AS was my first rifle, I still have it and it is a great
Michael Mays: Is that a Marlin Glenfield?
Brent Lecuyer: In a bug out. 250 yards should be a max distance you'd want to attempt to
get an attacker. A 30/30 would be extremely efficient for hunting and self
Evil Jim: At the velocities you would get out of the rifle length barrel... it would
take a miracle to keep from having complete penetration.
ERprepper: thats cuz it the rifle in the video isnt a 30-30. Its a 38/357
MountainDweller67: As for 'same caliber' rifle and pistol, you cannot beat the .44 magnum,
especially if you handload. You can load 300-grain rifle rounds or
240-grain pistol rounds (or if you have the Ruger SuperRedhawk, with the
reinforced forcing cone, you can fire the big rifle loads in the pistol). I
back both up on the 'light side' with a Marlin 60, .22LR. You get the
benefit of semi-auto with 15-in the mag, in a 'looks like a hunting rifle
to the liberals' package. Unbeatable combo.
Dmytro Bryushkov: Usually take down BLR is not less accurate than regular one. But it much
easier to transport and store it, as well, not difficult to clean a bore.
TheMighty44Magnum: Thats not a bad deal since the mosin is after all just a mosin you got a
good reliable winchester in a good caliber im jealous
MrJake985: The .44 magnum has taken a lot of deer sized game in the past, its even a
good cartridge for black bear. I wouldn't want to face down a Grizzly with
one, but if you get close enough I am sure it can take elk sized game
easily. Many hunters out there opt to hunt with .44 magnum revolvers. I
have a friend who does all of his hunting with pistols and revolvers from a
Ruger .22 semi auto for small game to the .44 mag for larger game bore and
brooks steff: 30/30 taking small deer lol. dude ill take a buffalo with one.
Patriotalliance: Winchester 30-30, My first and still one of my favorites...
Teeravit kun: I have one a couple year ago and i will not recomment Taurus Thunderbolt
because they are unrealisable and i think they not product anymore ? if you
want pump action rifle i will recomment you to buy a imi timber wolf it
function almost like rem 870 but problem is it really HARD!!! to find one
accept that it well builde and accurate.
001tonbushcrafting: i carry a marlin chambered in 45 colt and a s&w Governor as my woods gun /
bush crafting gun but good idea to carry openly in a shtf keep the ar in
bengtsson45: Awesome video as always. Thanks!
cyberflea30: If you think this is a bad replacement for a AR do some research, although
a great semi auto is tough to beat. Lever guns can season tough weather,
very reliable and handle running dirty. Yes you can't use the spray and
pray tactic with one but still should not under estamate its pros.
eddiecarlcalhoun: I have a Glenfield 30/30 model, 30A. Same action as the Marlin, a little
less money. Shoots awsome......Ed...
TXLorenzo: Sure they still make them. Where have you been looking? Marlins are in at
just about every Walmart in the country. Cabelas, Gander Mountain, ect..
all carry them. The .357, .44 and 45-70 versions though, are usually in
high demand, and you may not see as many as you do the 30-30 models.
Saku19: Agreed....I'm switching from my 30-30 to a .44 Mag...and picking up Ruger
Silas Longshot: Yep, ol' lever gun like my Win 94 in .357 mag is my fave too. Have the Mini
14, AK-47, SKS, pump shotguns, etc. But, my Win 94 is the one, perhaps
because of using it during competition shooting in the Cowboy Action
Imakeplanesboom: Why does everybody use a bench rest or sandbags or whatever. That's not
shooting to me, in a real life situation you don't have the time to set up
a rest or a bipod to shoot. Hold it like a man. I understand if you're
checking groups for different grain ammo, but still..
MrJunglemike: One other point that makes that gun great for survival, ammunition will be
easy to find. If you’re in an apocalyptic situation the last thing you
would want is a weapon that requires a specialized round. If you’re
scrounging for ammo, you could find this ammo in a lot of households.
SoggyTheOtter: Correct on all counts, my friend! My 1894 is chambered in .44 mag/.44
special. Didn't need the extra range, performance and cost of true rifle
rounds, but still wanted something that would take out almost any critter
that I would be likely to encounter at under 100 yards, here in New
England. And the ten-round (eleven, if I load it with .44 special) capacity
in "pistol" rounds, and the ease of "tactical reloads" are the icing on the
