Re: 8-gauge guns and ammo

I said I wouldn't want to shoulder fire an 8 gauge, not that they didn't. If I can find it, Mom has a picture of my Grandpa hunting waterfowl on Heron Lake. There was another hunting party behind his group that you can see a swivel gun mounted on their boat. My Grandpa said it was a 4 gauge and the ...

Re: 8-gauge guns and ammo

I have a few 8 gauge slugs that I got from an Uncle that worked in a paper mill. They were fired from a solid mount artillery style breach loaded smooth bore. You could feel the concussion 10ft away. Can't say I would want to shoulder fire one. I've seen a couple that were used in market hunting, bu...

Re: The Propaganda machine is really cranking it out

What? Didn't they like the redecorating along Lake Street?

Re: New ATF Power Play Could Impact Millions Of Gun Owners

Can't say I like the ATF's about face, but... This really doesn't surprise me much. With the proliferation of braces and some of the blatant advertising, a person HAD to know that the ATF would address it at some point. I built a 10.5" AR with a Blade Tech Shockwave brace for the specific fact ...

Re: How's The Deer hunting Going?

Cool game cam pic from one of my stands. 6-10040071.JPG That is a cool picture! My bow hunter stopped by the house this morning. He told me last night when he got out of his stand there was an 8 point bedded down about 10 yards from his truck. It was after legal hours. He said the buck never moved,...

Re: How's The Deer hunting Going?

Saw what was left of someone's buck Monday morning on the highway. Looked like it was a nice size buck. Semi's do a real number on a deer. Broadheads do a number on tires. Ultimately, a bad day for hunter, driver, and deer. This year has not been a good year for deer in my area. Don't think any of ...

Re: Rifle destroyed. Shooter safe.

Glad to hear no major injuries except to the rifle. Good reminder that just because it's factory ammo, doesn't mean it's perfect. All the safety rules still apply. Have seen a shotgun self destruct. My hunting partner fell in the snow and failed to check the barrel well enough. His next shot split t...

Re: GROUP TRADE - one to one

Thanks for starting this thread. Sorry I can't help you with powder or primers.

Still Looking for 223/556 62-77gr.

I now have a few extra boxes of 9mm 115gr fmj that I would be willing to part with.
I'm in SWMN just off of I-90 about 70 miles SW of Mankato.

Re: Firearms and physical disability

Tore up my right shoulder about 10 years ago. Took two surgeries and 3-4 years to get back to full use of the right hand/arm/shoulder. I became pretty good using my left hand to do everything. Also learned that a sling makes for a great place to stash a pistol and no one asks questions. Praying you ...

Pretty safe to say he's had a life changing experience.
Will reserve judgement on whether he will actually make a positive change until a later date.

Re: July first Wed Lunch

I'm in; along as Big Dog doesn't invite the gubner. Let him invite the gubner. That might actually clue him in to how pi$$ed off people in this state are at his seemingly random method of enforcing the state's laws. Laws? I thought he was enforcing his decrees! Know what I'd like to tell him to do ...

Re: The world is full of idiots

I'm calling this a BS story. The guy was "To stunned" to say anything???? Any normal person let alone a instructor would of chewed this guy out like no tomorrow. I just don't believe it. This makes his story of being a Marine range instructor for 6 months more believable. Can't say I've e...

Re: Reloading in 2020

I've been reloading since the 1972 Spring semester at SDSU. An IE instructor got me started with loading of 7.62X54R cartridges. Since then the reloading process has changed many times for me. Currently (at last count) I reload 47 different cartridges from 22 Hornet to 50 BMG. 48 years of reloading...

Re: Getting sick of gun shows

Shameless plug for the Jackson show coming up this weekend held at the JCC High School. 9-5 Saturday and 9-3 Sunday. Besides the Jackson show, I don't make it to many. I like the Minnesota Weapons Collector show, but don't get there every year. There's a big show in Sioux Falls in the spring that I ...
