    How are things in "Trust Land"?

    Actually, it's been so long that I can't remember where I left off. :cool: I keep adding to it and going in and injecting stories chronologically. My Mom turns 84 in a few days and she has expressed a need that I finish this dang thing so I have been hammering away. Part of that was changing...

    How are things in "Trust Land"?

    Wow, it's been a long time. It was good (inspirational) to re-read some of the posts. I was thinking, "Oh these guys aren't even on here any more I bet" Great to see that you are! Zeus is doing well, he and I both have grey whiskers now but both still kickin. He will be glad to know that...

    Trust Land

    I'm still out here. Life happened and I got busy with another adventure. I've started writing again and I expect to finish it soon. Thanks for all of the interest! I can honestly say that the amount of interest I received kept me interested in telling my story. I saw a US Navy commercial...

    Ranging prairie dogs

    Another option is to use a mil-dot reticle. But that has it's limitations too on such a small target.

    Do You Shoot Archery Competition?

    I've shot 300 league and 3D. I don't practice much and I shoot an old MQ-32 but I can almost always pull out a top 6 spot with it and I've gotten a 1st and a 2nd. Good shootin bow and I like the way it hunts!

    Rifle burst tests, how good is your rifle?

    I have hunted my entire life. My Dad hunted, his Dad hunted and virtually everyone I know hunts (even my girlfriend). Also, where I hunt the temps can drop down to -26 below zero plus winds at 20-35mph. While it's not exactly the antarctic, it gets pretty extreme some days. I have never, nor...

    Rifle burst tests, how good is your rifle?

    I think I'd just move to the USA and let them have it.

    Rifle burst tests, how good is your rifle?

    Thank you for that clarification. Now I just have to remember not to weld my barrel shut. But, I can see how easily that could happen. Now I'd like to see some tests where a stick of Acme brand dynamite is inserted into the action in place of the bolt. Since you just never know when this...

    Hornady or Sinclair concentricity guage

    OK, I guess I'm going to be the only one on here that admits I bought the Hornady! I'm also lucky enough to be blissfully ignorant and not know the difference between a good one and a bad one, so I'm happy with it. I've actually used it a lot and have no problems with it, but again, I don't...

    ? .270

    I have a Winchester M70 Classic Featherweight .270 and I really like to hunt with it. I bought it in 1995, when I was still in the military. It's very accurate with heavier bullets and I love taking that **** thing hunting. I've killed a lot of deer (west river muley at 625yds), coyotes...

    Which guns do you use for predator hunting?

    I selected AR and bolt gun but I've also used my 10ga. as well as my Encore. 22-250 (Encore), 243 (boltgun), 6mm-06AI (Encore) and 6.5 Grendel (AR platform) I'm at the point in my life where I have a lot of guns and not near enough time to shoot them. Ten years till retirement! :rolleyes:

    Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

    Ya, I agree with the ease of manipulation. I just think they look cool! When the zombie prairie dogs come, I'll be eating a few of my posts I bet. lol
