Probably could be in the firearms forum but its hunting related. Move if necessary. So bear with me as i talk this one out. Seeing the Remington 700 bolt action pistol got me thinking about 38 special and thermal scope combo for night hunting coyotes. https://www.galleryofguns.com/genie/default.aspx?item=96814 -Start with a virgin left-handed action (to keep trigger finger ready for follow up shots) -Register as pistol to get around that "loophole." -I can't find any options so I would assume you would have to have a custom barrel made in say 10-14" length chamber in 38 special (preferably at least +P). -Probably a custom bolt face also (0.440" rim [308= 0.478"; 223= 0.378"]) -Pork Sword-style chassis (Building a Pork Sword Pistol - Black Collar Arms) -Thermal Scope of choice (no IR night-vision scope "emits light" [conveniently IR by definition is not in visible light spectrum but yet considered light emitting per regs ]) -Clamp tripod since it'll probably be heavy (https://shop.opticsplanet.com/bog-d...MIxbWOoO6E4wIVA4_ICh1y7wgaEAQYASABEgIe5fD_BwE) so for an easy $10k+ you can hunt coyote with more than a 22LR at night. its only money right? anyone have anything wild like that? I know there's a Mass Coyote Hunting faceplant page with some pretty tricked out T/C Contender rigs and such.
