    Hey guys!

    I am afraid I have been bitten by the bug, and bad.

    First I reblued an old family rifle, that was in dire need. It turned out pretty good.

    Then I bought an old shabby, used stock for my 10/22. I refinished it and it turned out awesome.

    In the last 2 weeks, I have ran across 3 old Savage/Stevens/Springfield 6A/87/187 rifles owned by family and friends. I thought so much of it that I went to a pawn shop and bought one as a project rifle. It is ugly, rusty, and only cost me $80. I love it!

    I have tons of questions, I have registered with rimfire central a couple of weeks ago, I can log in, but I don't have access to post.

    Anyone here a member of that forum?

    What do I need to do to be able to post?

    Well, here's the deal. You must receive an e-mail from them with a key code to activate your account first.

    I had the exact same problem and tried everything to get through to them by requesting a service ticket or getting members to contact the Mod's, but nothing worked. This went on for over a month before someone came up with the solution.

    It turns out that my popular e-mail provider was on their "blocked" list for some reason, so no key code e-mail for me. What I did was go to g-mail and sign up for a free e-mail address. It only takes a couple of minutes to sign up over there and be up and running. So then I go over to Rimfire Central with a new user name, password, plugged-in the new g-mail address and ba-da-bing just like that I got the activation e-mail at my g-mail and was in just like that.

    Give it a try, it worked for me. :cool:

    Yahoo initially throws the RFC emails in the Spam folder, so you have to watch your trash container initially for 'em...then set it to Not Spam...

    I love shooting my .22 for accuracy at 100 yards, maybe there are more like me at this rimfire central. I will check it out, thanks!

    I am sure that lots of shooters do that. Me I am a 25 yard guy because that is the max at my local range (Field Time here in OC, CA). On the other hand, I doubt I could hit anything much further out than 25 yards. :eek:

    Love shooting rimfires though. I know what you mean about having it bad. :rolleyes:
