One of my extended family relatives had one of those some years back. It was used as a deer poacher, the round not generating much noise. Not for trophy horns, for meat for his family (not that it...

I just purchased this one . . .

Spyderco C170G Karahawk Karambit knife. I have a couple of hawkbill bladed knives and this one seems to be a good addition to that herd. Here is the factory link to it.

I have a T/C Contender .357 Rem. Max 14" barrel which has been converted to a carbine barrel length. Has a permanently welded Choate extension to make it so. I never considered it a truck rifle by...

Be extremely careful if you plan to shoot solid bullet construction in shotguns, some shotgun actions are not rated for such use. I wish that weren't the case - I have some single shot designs where...

Thanks Gerald, I am unfamiliar with that model. Glad to hear CZ Brod is still tweaking the original design. :)

Wouldn't it be nice if they introduced a Brno #1 sporter in original configuration...

I paid $2.06 for plain unleaded at a local Valero down in the RGV, hard up against the U.S. / Mexico border last night. Most prices I see are in the $2.11 - $2.15 range.

Thanks for the posted details . . .

. . . I had no idea of two different safetied versions of that rifle. I wonder why Winchester decided to do that ? I had a 30-06 Govt. chambered rifle in that model, non carbine and I'm pretty sure...

For me, the Remington catalog full color ads are da bomb. Those surplus Sherwood Arms - Ye Olde Hunter ads are very cool too. The gun rags from the 1960's are full of such stuff - cool beans !

152 Sharpfinger - Oh yeah, nice score there . . .

Interesting topic (for some) . . .

For me, the size of target would determine if a variable is needed . . .

Both my scoped .22 Magnum rifles have fixed 4x scopes on top of them. I considered lower power models, but figured with the extra range of the magnum, it could be needed at longer distances on small...

Standard Mfg. - Thunderstruck .22 Magnum DOUBLE ??

One strange looking puppy, but most double barreled handguns are a bit quirky. :)

Never seen this one before

I have a few of the China made Taylor knives . . .

Hard to improve on the original 30.06 / 12 Gauge duo . . .

Combination rifle/shotgun single shots used to be available if a single firearm was desired. We hardly ever use shotguns for small game though, at least in our locale.

I like single .410s too . . .

Outbuilding, I may be mistaken, but . . .

Well, I've added a couple of knives in the interim . . .
