Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Your Favorite .22

Mine is the pre-war Winchester 69A that I inherited from my dad. Been shooting it for 60 years. For a sporter weight rifle with iron sights, the accuracy is still astounding.

Re: People are just jerks

Yep. We rescued a few dogs when we lived in the country. I don't get why anyone would do that to a pet.

Re: What happened to Zeliard & Candyman ?

Candyman's last post in the rimfirecentral.com forum was on July 17, 2018. He seemed to post in spurts there and would dump a bunch of good info on the forum and then disappear for a few years. Hope he's okay. He's a good guy.

Re: No Internet In NM and Blizzard coming

We are feeling it here in the Greater Kansas City area. Started snowing Friday night. By Saturday night we had 12 inches of heavy wet snow that crushed trees and power lines. Initially over 100,000 customers without power. We lost ours Saturday morning just before 8:00. Still out. Jackson County got...

Re: .17 caliber rifle

I think you will like it. When my wife started shooting, centerfire rifles were a little too much for her so a 17 HMR was a good choice. Optics are a must and her Marlin was a little persnickety when it comes to ammo but once you figure that out they are crazy accurate. Not so great for hunting smal...

Here's an article that may help. I use it a lot when loading cast bullets. Works pretty good.

Funny product review.

This is a product review someone posted about a pistol they purchased from Classic Arms. They gave it a one star rating. ... Looks like the barrel is shot out. The CZ I recieved was just OK to me. Nothing to write home about. Bore looks to have little to no rifling left. This was for a CZ-82. Anyone...

WW I Museum

I have lived in the Kansas City area all my life and one the iconic landmarks here was the Liberty Memorial which was originally to honor WW I veterans. Over the years it kinda fell into disrepair, but an the beginning of this century they began a restoration and conversion to the National WW I Muse...

Don't bother buying a lottery ticket. You've used up all you luck, and already won.

Re: Weekend road trip.

We stayed at the Quality Inn about a mile away to the east. It was about $100/night after taxes and fees. Breakfast buffet there is free there from 6:00 to 9:00 and it was pretty good. Chain restaurants are nearby. We ate at Chili's. If all you do is take the tour of the museum plan AT LEAST three h...

Weekend road trip.

Took a little road trip last weekend. Started around 1:30 PM on Friday and drove from Kansas City to Springfield, MO. Stopped at the NRA museum in the Bass Pro Shop there, and saw some interesting firearms. They had a couple of original Hawkin rifles, the air rifle Lewis and Clark took with them up ...

Re: Hurricane Michael

So sorry to hear about all the damage. Here in middle America we have to worry about tornadoes, but they are pretty surgical and only last about 30 seconds if you are hit by one. I read where Michael was like an F2 tornado that lasted for 30 minutes. That must have been terrifying. Glad you are okay...
