  • Posted in thread: Why you should lock up your guns on 02-06-2016 at 07:52 AM
    I too grew up with guns in the house. They were in just about every corner in every room and
    almost every drawer. I had six shotguns and a .22 rifle hanging on a wall in my room for as far
    back as I c...

    My dads Winchester model 12 I got when he passed. The 1887 Winchester I grew up hunting with
    and the L.C. Smith SXS I got from a dude for 75.00 way back when.

    You've got some very nice toys.

    It's no Pedersoli with those machining marks. Could be one of the India made guns in which case
    I would be leery of shooting it.

    My repro P53 Enfield will tear hell out of a five gallon bucket at 300 yards. I don't know if I
    can still do it with my eyesight now but the rifle can still do it.

    My .50 always liked a 90 grain charge with a round ball. Ironically my .54 likes the same load.

  • Posted in thread: Whats your average deer shot distance? on 01-19-2016 at 07:50 AM
    When I was a teen we hunted across soy bean fields. If you couldn't make a 300 yard shot you'd
    best stay at home. If you didn't have a three wheeler or a Willys Jeep to get it out you'd best
    stay at h...

    Palmetto's weren't very good quality. You'd probably be better off buying a new one.

    Wow 40 grains of T7 and it still works! I'd just about bet money it has an imprint of the
    cylinder ratchet in the recoil shield. I wouldn't go over 18 grains of real bp in a brass frame
    and about 15 o...

  • Posted in thread: will a scope help on a Marlin 22lr 60 new? on 01-12-2016 at 03:02 AM
    I bought a new Marlin 60 about four years ago. It came with a little 3/4 tube scope I didn't
    even put on it. I paid 25.00 for a fixed 4X Bushnell that does all I need it to. It's plenty
    clear, hasn't ...
