    Old Marlin 55 royal canadian 16 guage

    Family member died recently and left an aunt this old bolt action shotgun. From a little research, I found they only made around 3000 model 55s in 16 guage, and they only made the canadian model for 3 years so Im assuming the number of the "royal canadian" models made in 16 guage would be much...

    Making home made bedding pillars for boyds stock/savage axis

    Recently ordered my dad a new boyds stock for my dad's savage axis to replace the flimsy Tupperware stock. Most of the bedding pillars I'm finding are 9/16" and some people are having issues with the stocks cracking a little when drilling out the holes for the action screws to accommodate the...

    Questions about canned dill pickles

    My mother usually makes some awesome dill pickles. She just gave me 4 quarts she just made and this year's pickles are mushy. She puts them in a brine then seals the jars in a hot water bath instead of a canner. This year she tried a different cucumber than last years. Could this just be the...

    Anyone shoot a 6mmbr, 6XC or 6.5mmX.284?

    Thinking of eventually building a gun for Fclass open at 600 and possibly 1000 yards. Anyone here shoot any of these calibers? If so, does anyone use it as a dual purpose rifle like shooting on a bench rest as well as deer hunting. Do they make good bullets for deer with any of these calibers or...

    Ready for a new "tinfoil" hat conspiracy theory?

    I told my wife when there was still 16 republican nominees that there was absolutely NO way that Trump could win the nomination. If he did, it would be that he was planted by the dems to insure a hitlery victory. Then this hit me a couple days ago. With the dems being caught vote tampering in...

    UK defense against Carolina

    Who'd have thunk UKs defense would play with such intensity tonight? Was it the awful carolina offense, Lee Corso's comments that UK might have the worst defense in the country, Wesley Woodyards pregame peptalk, or the rumors around campus today about Stoops? Something lit a fire under their...

    The upcoming cold fronts effect on the dove opener

    My very favorite day of hunting is almost upon us and now the weather man is calling for a fairly strong cold front on Wednesday night. Highs all week in the 90s then high of 83 Thursday and even cooler on Friday. Is that enough to push out birds that are starting to build on a field? Checked...

    Just a hypothetical distraction

    I have mentioned the thieving, worthless junkies that live across the street from me. The neighbor and I need to settle a bet now. About 2 hours ago, police descended on my neighborhood in force. There was a cop car on every corner and they ended up bringing in 3 canine units to search for a...

    Looking for .38 recommendations for a CCW for wife

    Wife is somewhat recoil sensitive. My lightweight .40 is too snappy for her and she doesnt have strong enough hands to rack the slide on most autos. Looking to get her a decent revolver. Looked at a whole bunch of .38s and .357s the other day but didnt get to shoot any. Looks like the airweight...

We have a house across the street with 6 adults and 3 or 4 kids living there. 2 of the adult men are registered...
