  1. Back in the 80’s I got to shoot one of those rifles. A friend of a friend let me try his rifle. If I remember correctly the rifle fired an 8mm round similar to a 30.06. It was a single shot falling block type receiver. The shooting stance was a bit awkward at first but after a couple of shots it was comfortable. With iron sights I shot a clover leaf group at 100 yards after a 3 or 4 shot warmup. The rifle weighed about 10 pounds. It was fun.
  2. I am truly sick of flake powders like Unique and Universal when trying to create accurate loads using my RCBS powder measure. This morning using Universal to make up some Wadcutter test loads I was getting upwards of .2 grains difference with each throw of the lever. I use Winchester 244 for .38 Special .357 Magnum and 9mm. It was specially developed for those rounds. In .45 Colt and .45 ACP it’s very sooty. W244 measures very nicely and accurately but it’s not for .45 caliber cartridges. How is W231 for .45 Colt and ACP loads? The loads I want a good powder for are going to be defensive and possibly even hunting loads. Not for plinking and such.
  3. I truly wondered if the NRA bashing would cease after Wayne LaPierre left. I kind of figured it wouldn’t. I will fund the NRA and I will support the NRA any way I can because if it wasn’t for the NRA you all wouldn’t even be allowed to have old timey cowboy guns by this moment in history.
  4. Nope, he’s still alive. I hope he’s miserable, wherever he is. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Donner
  5. He’s absolutely a lefty lib. Pretty sure his man card was revoked in his teens as well. When I saw the OP by @Buckshot Bob the first thing I did was look up who the director was going to be to see if that POS Richard Donner was involved. He’s another slime bucket that uses guns in his movies but puts up anti NRA rhetoric in the background. I met him once during the filming of Lethal Weapon 3. I didn’t shake his hand when he offered his and had I not been there as a work assignment I would have popped him a good one and perhaps even kicked him when he was down. Hopefully he’s dead.
  6. I think that depends on the state. I know in California “they” think it’s their right to have your DNA. The DNA could indicate the difference between a father and son because the son also has Mom’s DNA as well. The third question gave me a headache.
  7. I think the NRA should be disbanded. It’s not like they ever did anything for us anyway. Right? Edit: Ha! I forgot an appropriate emoji.
  8. So are inlets and enlist as well as elints. Why, Yes, I did look these up on a Scrabble site.
  9. That’s a great looking bike.
  10. Entertainment brought to you by one idiot Texan and Houston Light Rail…and Alpo.
  11. I think the beret is stupid headgear for any US military group. Proper for French lounge lizards of the 40’s & 50’s and no one else.
  12. Aha! I know. She’s upset because there are no drinks. …and she’s headed for a secluded weather station in the North Atlantic.
  13. That almost looks like something for loading shot in shells. The mechanics look all off for powder. This is just a guess.
  14. Where her drink? Is that photo of the female officer smoking from an article talking about the new headwear?
  15. From the article: “Remington is consolidating its operations in Georgia, a state the company says is friendlier to the firearms industry.” I’m sure this is the main reason. The new owners aren’t going to put up with Italian Commie Cuomo and his Minions of Moron any longer. https://marketrealist.com/p/who-owns-remington-firearms-now/
  16. My grandson had one of those. My daughter bought it for him. My son-in-law hated the thing. I think it went to Goodwill at some point.
  17. Depression. It affects everyone at some point.
