    Thoughts on Lever Action

    I have owned a Marlin in 44mag, 444 marlin, and just today purchased the stainless 45-70. The only lever gun in the safe is a Winchester M94 from 1957. All were or are great weapons. They all have their place, depending on the intended use. A 30-30 is a fine short range weapon. The Marlins were...

    What happened to this brass?

    These are great stories. Solid entertainment. Makes me think of the time I over charged a muzzle loader. When the smoke cleared the hammer was re-cocked. That's ok? Right?

    Knee pain options

    Forgot to mention this in the earlier post. Look at a "Cryo-Cuff". Looks like a knee brace but is set up to circulate ice cold water from a cooler. Water circulates through the brace. I've used one after the last couple surgeries. It's an amazing device. In about 15 min. the knee is as cold as a...

    Knee pain options

    After 6 knee surgeries, I just had to throw my opinion out there. Have you worked with a good physical therapist? It helped me. Also, have you tried braces? BetterBraces.com has kept my going for years. Your running days may be over. Mine sure are. I work on concrete floors all day. The boots I...

    2 Elk Wasted, Poachers.

    Thank you, but no need. You should hear me when I get spooled up on an issue that hits home. Maybe someday we can tip a beer and trade stories.

    2 Elk Wasted, Poachers.

    Could not agree with you more. Bet I can guess who you are referring to. Just so we are clear, I wasn't trying to make any claim to being better than anyone else. Simply referring to what I had seen. I wish your story was a one time thing. Sadly, it is not. I could tell you several, some of them...

    OK. Someone please help get me up to speed. What is a 'Rule 1 Violation". I used the "E" word? Seriously?

    2 Elk Wasted, Poachers.

    For what's it's worth, I feel your pain. After spending about 30 years dealing with hunters in Oregon, from a LE perspective, I know what you are talking about. Been there, seen it. Camps left in the hills which resemble a garbage dump, headless critters left to rot, so on and so on. I'm not for...

    Sounds like you hunt in Oregon.

    Thicken the grip area on a ridge line?

    To change the stock, you might try using pieces of military foam sleeping pad. You can shave it to just about any shape needed. I start with a layer of gorilla tap on the stock, then add the padding. I hold the padding down with more gorilla tape. When done, I overwrap the whole works with a...

    Glock 10mm bear loads

    Having spent quite a bit of time with a 10mm Colt when they first came out, I would have to STRONGLY recommend against betting your life on that round when it comes to bear. Granted, the only bear I know about are black bear, but even those would leave me nervous with a 10mm. The trade off is...

    I want a legit argument against an old trusted cartridge

    I you believe in your 7mm, if you have faith in it, if it feels good when you pick it up and shoulder it, if it would be the gun you looked for in a pile of everything in your gun safes, then (respectfully) you have answered your own question. I have safes full of "shudda been betta" rifles. I...
