  1. Measure the bullet diameters. They may not all be the same. I once had a batch of bullets that measured .307 they shot just like what you are talking about. When shooting for groups use all the same manufacture and date of brass. Does the rifle lock up tight in the stock?
  2. Spent the money that a HS class ring would have cost in 1968 ($28.88) on a 98 Mauser from the Spiegel Catalog. Still have it and use it. The only other ring I have had is a wedding ring I have worn every day since 8-20-1976.
  3. This Colorado sheriff is willing to go to jail rather than enforce a proposed gun law https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/31/us/colorado-red-flag-gun-law/index.html

  5. In 1964 I bought a JC Higgins bolt action 12ga at the local second store for $2.50. It had a broken shell carrier. Took it down the street to the local welder. He charged me 50 cents to braze it. I was 12 years old at the time and I still have it.
  6. "I'm not sure if I'm shooting from benchrest, but I am seated and resting the rifle on a bench. I am not locking it into a vise or anything like that. No sandbags either because I don't have any available." First learn how to shoot from a bench. There is more to it than just resting the rifle on the bags and pulling the trigger. Do not rest the rifle on the bench. Get some bags and learn how to use them. Are the action screws tight? Are the scope mount screws all tight. Are the scopes good? Are the bores copper fouled, badly pitted, or rusted? Are the muzzle crowns damaged? Check these things and then try shooting groups again, most modern factory ammo will shoot fine but some will be better in you rifles.
  7. If passed the Florida Constitution would be amended to outlaw most if not all semi auto, pump, and lever action firearms, anything that can hold more than 7 rounds.. It would also outlaw any weapon classified as a sniper rifle. (Anything with a scope) Direct Quote form the proposal. "No other person entering or residing in the State shall possess any weapon or firearm that functions like or has the capacity of a military style weapon. Military style weapon means any gun with a magazine capacity of more than seven rounds of ammunition or any weapon capable of firing in fully automatic mode, any weapon capable of being modified in any manner to fire in a fully automatic mode or any weapon classified as a sniper rifle." https://ballotpedia.org/Florida_Ban_on_Military-Style_Firearms_and_Disqualifications_for_Firearm_Possession_Initiative_(2020)
  8. Bob It will be one of the very last guns I would sell. I will be passing it on to family.
  9. My first Garand bought in 1978 when I was County Sheriff. A 1954 International Harvester. Local Highway Patrolman got one at the same time, also an IHC. I found out later they came from South America. Mine is mostly all IHC parts including the stock. Seemed like a lot of money at the time for a newly married 28 year old making $750 a month.
  10. Verizon sent us a free booster after multiple complaints. Just one problem it requires 10MB internet service to work. We might get 2.5MB on a good day. We can see the cell tower about 5 miles away. We used to have really good service from them up until about 2 years ago, it keeps getting worse. I think equipment at the tower is going bad but we live in a rural area with few customers so there is no incentive to repair or improve service.
  11. I just finished reading the three book series by Kurt Schlichter People's Republic Indian Country & Wildfire Fiction about the Red Blue civil war. Sadly a lot of what is in the books is coming true. The Green New Deal for example.
  12. May 1945 Springfield I received from CMP.
  13. This is one of the stupidest ad's I have ever seen. In a large part of the county the killer would have been blown away when he kicked in the bedroom door. If not before. With or without a weapon.
  14. We shut the water off any time we are going to be gone overnight or longer. A leak can happen any time. Doesn't take much of a leak to cause significant damage. Just a quarter turn on a ball valve in the basement. My feeling is an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure every time.
  15. Red Flag Laws. Lost or stolen firearm reporting. Gun owner liable for misuse of stolen gun. Open carry restrictions. All I can think of for now.
  16. Found guilty of a federal felony for buying a suppressor that was legal under Kansas law. Why are the Feds not prosecuting all the federal felonies committed in the States where marijuana is legal under State law. https://gunowners.org/gun-owners-of-america-funds-challenge-to-national-firearms-act-in-u-s-supreme-court.htm
  17. Bob you had to go and do it! The only thing I think was worse than Chopped Eggs and Ham were the Ham and Mo Fo's.
  18. What will they think of next!!!! Oregon Senate Bill 501 introduced. Prohibits magazines over 5 rounds. Requires background check for ammo purchases. Restricts ammunition receipt to 20 rounds within 30-day period. https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2019R1/Downloads/MeasureDocument/SB501/Introduced https://gunfreezone.net/oregon-bill-to-kill-shooting-sports/
  19. Hate to disagree but this is not a blizzard. There is a huge difference between a blizzard and a snow storm. A blizzard is when the wind is blowing 30-40 mph for the entire time it is snowing and you end up with 6-10 foot drifts. This is just a nice level snow. We had around 10" of a nice level snow here in NW Kansas which we seldom get. Our snow normally comes with wind. This snow didn't even close any roads. Last week 4" with 30mph winds closed roads all over the area.
  20. HR8 Universal Background Check Bill introduced. It will make criminals out of most of us because I believe most people will ignore it if passed. Textual analysis of HR8, bill to "To require a background check for every firearm sale" https://reason.com/volokh/2019/01/09/textual-analysis-of-hr8-bill-to-to-requi
  21. Here we go again!! https://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=EFC76859-879D-4038-97DD-C577212ED17B
  22. They are probably using some form of polypropylene underlayment. Around here a common brand is called Titanium. Way tougher than felt paper and easier work with. It is grey in color. It does not have to cure. Put it down and shingle right over it. Not a lot of roofing felt (tar paper) used on roofs around here anymore.
  23. Young, Dumb, and Invincible !!!!!!!
  24. Firearms do not have to be inside checked baggage. I have flown with firearms several times lately and in most airports you check your bags at the counter and then take your guns to the TSA for inspection. Once inspected you are not allowed to handle the gun case again. When you arrive at your destination each airport is different, at some, guns come in with other baggage, at others they come in to a separate counter.
