Re: CCI 35 primers

The only limits on display are area allowed and ambition/knowledge/comfort of staff to put out primers. The clearance sale is store wide at all stores. Anything with a yellow clearance tag has an additional 25% discount from the sticker price. Merchandise is added to the sale daily as well as furthe...

Re: Best sight alternative for NEF Handi in .45-70?

I was thinking of the receiver sights that use the standard front sight rather than the globe. Redfield, Lyman, Williams, Skinner, and Marble are just a few manufacturers I can think of at the moment. I have used all the above other than Skinner which is actually a remake/improvement of a model by a...

Re: Man shoots himself while trying on new holster

Odds are the patient was flown to a Level III trauma hospital for emergency reconstructive surgery, something not available in most Minnesota hospitals. Aircraft are commonly used for transport as they can be easier on the patient due to fewer road bumps and for time as the sooner the corrective act...

Re: Best sight alternative for NEF Handi in .45-70?

Peep sights are a marked improvement over leaf rear sights provided the peep is mounted correctly. I had the same issues with a couple of lever actions and found peeps to be a very good alternative. I even changed from a 1-4x scope to a receiver sight on a Marlin 336 rifle (not carbine) as the peep ...

Re: Howa Mini Action rifles

I've shot one in 223 and one in 7.62x39. They were both good shooters and I kick myself for not buying the 7.62 as the prices went up dramatically afterward. Both were the sporter models which felt more like a 22 to me than a "real" gun. Even the bolt throw was noticeably shorter. This is ...

Re: Odd looking range pick ups

I've formed 401 WSL from 7.62x39 but did not need to make a false shoulder. I just ran the brass through the 401 sizer after expanding the neck in a couple of steps. The pictures appear to have been necked down which would not have been needed with the 401. Plus, the 401 is a more or less straight s...

Re: Feral hog hunting, best strategy?

Despite popular belief, javalinas are not related to pigs. At least not any more related than they are to deer. The Family name for the peccary is Tayassuidea which translates out to "New World Pig". I'll defer to the taxonomists as to what is considered a pig as there are a number of exa...

Re: Gander Lakeville

The Eden Prairie store was not initially scheduled to reopen. It was only a coincidence that the store reopened when there was active discussion of running a light rail line through the area if not actual site. That the store closed when those talks died is another coincidence.

Re: Feral hog hunting, best strategy?

As crbutler points out, there is the javelina/peccary that was here prior to European settlement. Then there are also the various pigs of pre-historic times. You did specify pre-European settlement. It is also true that our current feral pig problem were pigs brought over from Europe but that does n...

Re: Feral hog hunting, best strategy?

So there were wild pigs in America prior to European expansion? Yes. The current domestic pig is typically considered a descendant or subspecies of the wild pig of Europe. So, the feral domestic pigs currently found in America are originally from wild stock. They were brought here by some of the fi...

Re: Feral hog hunting, best strategy?

I'm in for information. An Amish neighbor goes to a place in Texas that charges them $250 for a cabin, I think for a week. All the pigs you can shoot. The Amish neighbor got night vision before I did :o It seems though that in general it is difficult to find a place to hunt without getting charged ...

Re: Gun from buy-back program found near dead gang member

The gun was allegedly turned into a Chicago site run by presumably Chisago Police Dept. Garrity does not seem to have been employed by Chicago PD therefore he would not of had direct access to it. If it made it to the street or to Garrity's hand there was at least one intermediary. Either way, it do...

Re: Trap prices

I found that showing them the financials via a basic graph doesn't work, then trying to increase rates based on what others charge isn't going to work either. The latter is just as incompatible as the latter as personal finances drive these types more than business sense. The short answer is to get ...

Young Minnesota hunter, 11, bags 12-point buck on her very first hunt Watch out, deer: There’s a new hunter in town and, and despite being a pre-teen, she’s a heck of a shot. The 11-year-old girl in Minnesota surprised even her father when she bagged an impressive 12-point buck last week. Making th...
