    Well I live in south alabama in a small town called semmes (a suburb of Mobile and named after the idiot who was putting the torpedoes in the water that caused Farragut to say "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead". Since I am retired I have rekindled my interest in rifles and have 8 including a 257 weatherby, a 270 weatherby, a 300 weatherby, a 30-378 weatherby, a 220 swift, a 22-250, and a 243 winchester. If I can figure out how to get the money, I will purchase a 22-6 mm ackley improved that is written up in this month's American Rifleman.

    Wish the most joyous holiday cheer to everyone.

    Semmes I know where that is! Right between me and my true home Crestview FL.

    Welcome aboard!

    Is the Blue Jay Restuarant still there on the causeway?

    I worked for the Corp of Engineers, Mobile District back in 1973 - 1975. We would make a run down to Bayou la Batre and buy raw shrimp by the 50# bushel for a $1.00 a pound right off the boat. I am hungry just thinking about it.
