Sheriff Jim Wilson sure does like a lever action rifle.
Where legal or personal reasons keep semi-automatic rifles from being used for defense, the lever action rifle is a great alternative.
See how quick and smooth a lever action can be in a defensive situation.
The lever action rifle was a staple of home and ranch security, as well as a superb hunting implement, for well over a century. It still holds a place in home security.
Where the AR-15 type rifles and other "evil" semi-automatic rifles are banned, the lever action can still provide quick shooting. This often overlooked defensive rifle can be bought used for a fraction of what many semi-automatic rifles can be bought for.
The lever action cartridge chamberings are just too numerous to list.
As Sheriff Jim Wilson shows us, do not overlook the lever action rifle as a defensive tool.
