  1. Seems when I go to some kind of shoot, or hunting event, with door prizes, I always win binoculars! I must have half a dozen sets of excellent binoculars. Easily, dollar for performance, you can't beat Nikon Monarchs......Compare optically to binoculars costing three times as much. Bird Watchers are the experts in thius field and the Nikons are highly recommended.

    I can stay at our house for area shoots or spend quite a few nights in a motel for what an RV or trailer and hauler would cost. A small trailer would be the least expensive option, but I would still need to store it somewhere between trips.


    Trust me....Buying an RV like buying a boat is NEVER a sound financial decision....NEVER!  But that's not the point. I stayed in motels my first year or two. Missed way too much. Actually didn't enjoy going to three day shoots. 

     Now I consider the camping at events easily 55% of the fun of a weekend shoot. No question. The campfire, the ApplePie Moonshine, The Blueberry Cobbler, the Pot Luck Dinners, the absolute frivolity can't be missed!

  3. Driftwood....Great score! I saw that rifle and it tugged at me.....But I have an 1889 in 38-40 in amazing condition. But then again, you can't have too many old guns, can ya!

    BTW....It amazes me at how many guns I've seen at various Cabelas that were mis identified. I've made some amazing purchasers as I traveled around the country and visited the Gun Libraries.


    Did you see the nice Winchester Low Walls they had a couple months ago.........Great deals

  4. When Reno Brown is traveling with me I drag my 20' Toy Hauler......Lots of room for "stuff" and built heavier than a standard tow behind trailer....


    But this year, when I'm going alone, the trailer is staying home and the RTT (Roof Top Tent) will be used

    One of the most difficult spotting situations I can imagine is spotting with grass and back drop of brush and trees -- remember, you must see a miss. :unsure:

    Fortunately, I shoot in the west where the ground and back drop is usually dry dirt.

    Add to this a stage that can be shot many different ways and by a Gun Fighter!!!

  6. Many of the police departments that use the range I supervise have switched to 45APC and use ammo with small primers. I have thousands of once fired cases with small primers.


    But I don't use them in Wild Bunch as a courtesy to my fellow pards.


    Getting a few  small primer shells mixed up with your large primer cases can be a bad day at the reloading bench. 


    I use them for practice and plinking only. 



  7. Put eggs, room temp or right from refrigerator into water. Water can be hot or cold. Bring water to boil. Once boiling, shut off heat and let sit for them minutes. Perfect hard boil every time.


    i owned a restaurant for a bit and was in charge of making egg salad. Must have boiled thousands of eggs in my time.

  8. I open the link to this forum

    I click on "Unread Content"

    I click on a particular thread

    Once I click on that thread, then return to the forum, the thread I just read disappears. Can't go back to it.


    Any way to set up my forum so this doesn't happen?




    Been thinking.  Don't know who the bands will be, but seems to me that at least two songs should be a given (to steam punk): Safety Dance (Men Without Hats) and Whip It (Devo).  Would appreciate alternate suggestions.  Blackwater?  T-Bone?

    Any "Techno" band would be acceptable.........Devo certainly!

  10. The amount of manual labor back then is amazing! (And shirts and ties!)

    The new AirBus factory in Alabama is building huge jet airliners with only 1500 employees. Robots do the bulk of the work. Just a few years ago, a factory building these planes would have 15,000 employees.
