  1. I got my nine year old nephew coprolite for his birthday. Now he can tell everyone that I give the crappiest gifts.
  2. Fainting goats are awesome!
  3. I don't know if Perry still post but nice job if ya do.
  4. Look s like your going the rip it all out and start with a clean slate method. Usually that's the best way.
  5. Mike thats good and bad I hope she gets over it quickly. Finally got my grubby paws on a savage 24v 30-30/20ga over under. It's pretty exciting for me I have been after one for years and a buddy of mine has had this one but wouldn't ever sell it. Well today we struck a deal on it we could both live with. It's not that model 24's are rare it's the 30-30/20 that's hard to find usually I find them in 222/20 or 22lr/20 even 223/20 the 30-30 where usually paird with a 12ga.
  6. The weather app on my phone must me having issues it says 8 for the temp. I'm sure there must be another number there like a 48 or 58 even a number after like 81.
  7. The weather man just said "this will be the coldest night we have had all year" really
  8. I'm usually not with government regulation but I feel there is a need.
  9. I just had to let my dog out, the door was already open he wouldn't go out until I touched the door knob.
  10. Nice Wes enjoy sit back and enjoy.
  11. I see some potential for the American, but Ruger is pushing the precision rifle. A timney trigger and bedded In a good stock the American would probably be a decent choice. Savage is still savage they are putting out fairly accurate rifles but still have problems with the small parts over time. (Extractoes, ejectors ect. Breaking). Not a huge deal to fix but a major annoyance. Remington is being run by lawyers and bean counters and it shows (think Gibson) and marlin is being run by Remington, the marlin x7 rifles have potential but little aftermarket support and since they where discontinued about a year ago I don't see a lot of support popping up. Right now howa and Tika are putting some nice stuff out for the precision market. And don't get me wrong about Ruger I own about half a dozen of their products just not where. I would go for long range stuff.
  12. I am familiar with the RPR, before dropping 1200 on one check out some of the long range forums and the reviews. Props to Ruger for making a rifle specific to that market.
  13. Wes if you really want to get in to long range a .223 is a great caliber to get started with, if you learn how to take it out to 1000yds you can shoot just about anything that far. Plus it's cheap to feed I can reload a 100 rounds for about $35 verses my 308 cost about $60. While your a Ruger fan I would avoid them for long range, Marlin had some potential with there x7 rifles but they discontinued them, the old go to for long range the rem700 just isn't want it used to be. Right now howa seems to have the most bang for your buck. Mike I have learned that the stock has a lot to do with how you control recoil that weatherby must have for you just right. I have a 308 that will leave bruises and others that are a pleasure I have picked up some great deals out of pawn shops
  14. I don't do much handgun shooting these days, the last few years I have been working more on my rifle shootinf, earlier this year I even started reloading for my rifles. I have been finding it very enjoyable. the white spot in the center is a 24"x18" at 500m the 4'x8' target boards is 600yd and the white plate to the left is 400m. And that's a spider that was chilling with me that morning
  15. Wow I didn't realize anyone was pushing them that hard, not that it's hard to do with modern powders but for the most part ammo companies play it safe.
