I bought a Big Bore 94 when they first appeared in 1978. Since I mostly hunted in thick cover the .375 Winchester in 250 grain persuasion appealed to me. I eventually had to put a scope on it so I had my gunsmith install a pistol scope in front of the bolt. It worked well, and it still does. I haven’t used it in years, but I need to break it out and at least kill a hog with it.
Model 94! Ahh, the good old days when everything was simpler, including firearms choices. My friends all started with with scoped Marlin 336's in 30-30, .357(1894C), .44, .35, and .444, but my dad bought me a Winchester Model 94 in .32 special, which wasn't special at all, since it had identical ballistics to a 30-30, however, it was very special to me, I would sit totally still and hold that gun for hours, and that was in my room, two months before the season opened. I could hit a wall sized target at 80 yards free handed with open sights. I killed my first buck with it the first season that I had it, I still have that gun today, and it's not for sale.
