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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Scan.BMP.jpg Here is the main reason that I don’t get an elk or deer license any more. My first year here I bought both a deer and elk license...and that was it, no more. This isn’t hunting around here. It is just load your gun and shoot them. They migrate from the mountains to the lowlands for the...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Topic - accuracy...or Off Topic accuracy? Just the other day I was visiting a Lady Doctor for the first time and after 10 minutes maybe she told me that I had a fife expectancy Bell Curve of 3 years. I do not recall ever having a doctor tell me this before. And I said, ”Bell Curve?” And she said, “Y...

Re: Slugging a bore, how I did mine.

Bore slugging – funny...Of course there would be a dozen and one different ways to slug a bore....some easier than others....some better than others. But no matter how it is done, there will be some that are critical of the way that it is done – just the nature of the beast. But I, thinking differen...

Well, that is the first part of just what I thought...and then add a careful probing of the bottom so as to disclose any under-sand rocks. Other wise they just ain’t going to do that.

Re: Spurs and the Great West

Okay, some on topic...I have been watching westerns off and on all afternoon. I have asked this question only once of a real horseman here. He passed away about 5 years ago at 92. He was born and raised right here. He had and rode horses since he was two maybe. I was a kid in country Iowa during the...

If someone would like some, I sure could part with some at far less than this....all new looking. One thing, the primers have deteriorated to the point of 20 to 30 % or so misfires. (1939...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Strictly off topic ---Just my view of some popular events. One hears of all the noise on the media about ‘Hacking’. My first memory of hacking was when I was a kid and lived just out of town and we had a telephone ‘Party line’- a two wire 12 party line. Everyone had a ring code, such as two longs an...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I am sorry for my errant temporary lack of forethought. Of course one should be able to collect surplus firearms and not be concerned one iota with their shooting accuracy. Just because I am interested in fire arm accuracy is no reason to think that any others should be – I know better than that...a...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Just in passing I woke up in the middle of last night and had this wild idea....I won’t cover the what and why’s. An idea for a custom rifle barrel...if I was younger I might even considered it, ‘If’...the barrel maker wouldn’t think of it as part of his retirement package. I would probable have tro...

We have these Abert's Squirrels here but I don't know of anyone that hunts them because they are so pretty and friendly. If one just sets for a few minutes they will come to you as if to say Hi. Well not real close - maybe 20 feet or so.
