  • Been shooting since I was 4 or 5, hunting since about 8. Competed in 200 yard handgun sillouette, and 1000 yard rifle, trying to get into large bore black powder cartridge [.50-70 or .50-90 maybe?]. Hunted from Virginiia to Georgia to Montana.

    The government has bought literally billions of dollars worth of ammo for multiple firearm
    types, more than they could use up if they shot everyone three times. There will be surplus. We
    are getting o...

    encountered are 4~6 y...

    I have been loking for an original FN-49 scope mount since 1986, and any GOOD mount for over 10
