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

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

Posted in thread: Whats your average deer shot distance? on 01-19-2016 at 07:50 AM

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
