So you bought both the Kimber and the 45/70???  I'm not following you? 

I love my kimber but it is an older one....wouldn't trade it for anything.  I also have a 45/70 (marlin) but it too is very fun and super effective on all sized game animals.  I hope you bought them both.....a person can never have to many guns.   :tup: :tup:

Ive had a marlin 1895 for about 5 or 6 years, lots of fun with lighter loads, but will wear you out in a hurry with the heavy stuff! Would be a great gun for about 90% of the ranges youd get a shot at on the west side.

if you guys are looking for cheap 45/70 ammo I would go to Defender ammunition web sight I paid 20 dollar a box and its a 10 dollar flat shipping rate.
