    Well I am finally having my hopes and dreams come true. I had placed and order and deposit for a little micro Mauser CZ 527 in 6.5 Grendel about 4 months ago. Recently I had noticed that several on line dealers hade them in stock, and called one to verify, and this one with whom I had made a previous purchase had one. I checked with my local dealer who called CZ, and was told it might be another three months, so I requested that he cancel my order if he could without any problems with CZ, which he did, and refunded my deposit. I promptly called the dealer in Utah and placed my order, he had agreed to hold it for the remainder of the day for me, and got a shipping notice and tracking # for UPS . Originally it said Friday, today, delivery which thought was optimistic, and it was quickly changed to next Monday, so hopefully I will be shooting on the fourth.

    I have apparently along with a lot of others been wanting this rifle in this caliber for a long time, since building some AR types, and CZ finally came through but cannot meet the demand, which will probably die off after those of us interested get their rifles.

    An effective cartridge in a classy little rifle. Let the whitetail and feral pig of Louisiana beware!

    I actually live in E. Texas, so have a better chance here. My sister and I kept my deceased parents house over in W. Monroe, La ( north central), and about 3 years ago while we were a small black bear was spotted in a residential back yard, about a block off of old US 80, just behind a commercial area with several restaurants. He most likely came from a game management area just north of town that has a large bayou flowing through, emptying into the Ouachita river. It often floods due to back waters from the river. The little fellow had to have traveled through about 4 miles of residential areas to get to that point. Wildlife services were out trying to catch him for a couple of days. We had to leave before they got him so do not know the final outcome. NE Louisiana at one time had a very large population of black bears, and they are returning, Along Interstate 20, just west of the Mississippi River there are numerous signs warning of bear crossings.

    I have many years ago seen bear tracks on an uncles farm over in the eastern Louisiana river delta, but never saw an actual bear. Back in the 60's when in high school and then college, a big game license had tags for deer and bear.

    We get black bears deep in our city all the time. It's pretty amazing how they can travel so far from the mountains. Oh, and we are a city of over 440,000 people.
     
  6. We spotted a rather large black bear recently as we rounded the curve on the county dirt road about 100 yards from our farm gate. He (maybe a she) quickly veered up the hill and the only photo we could snag was of his backside. We had spotted him at a distance a couple of weeks earlier.

    Yet somehow I have not been able to convince my wife that I "need" this gun.

    Just back from the shop. The 1903 had a carryup issue, and the 1905 was just loose. Shooting both later today. [​IMG]

    If that's the M 329pd in 44 Mag at just over 25 oz, I don't want anything to do with it. I have a little 342, j frame double action only with the scandium frame, titanium cylinder like that one in .38 special and it hurts. I just cannot imagine that light of a gun in 44 Mag.

    No mountains nearby, heck the highes point in La is 500+ feet above mean sea level, and that's about 40 miles west of where the bear was found. He most likely came from the management area which is sometimes swampy, or possibly the low roiling hills to the northwest.

  11. The plan is to carry it a lot and shoot it very little. I assume that with the adrenaline rush of a bear charge that I wouldn't notice the recoil.

    Dave, I love those S&Ws! Bob, check out the S&W 69, a L frame that handles 44s!

    That's the way I feel about my little 342. If I lived where something large like bears or big cats might be a problem I would probably get one of those lightweight 44 mag's also. Would probably shoot it some with 44 special loads, then load with mag loads for carry.
