    Public view of the U.S Military

    Here are my opinions and observations: 1. I hate being lied to. I know many military in all branches and know that they joined for financial reasons. Now in uniform they claim to have joined to protect our country. Tell me the truth. 2. I dislike all these monuments being erected for the...

    Maverick Rifle Reviews...

    The smell of hunting season is in the air. So, I went to my local range to sight in one of the Maverick rifles in 30-06. I got the rifle on paper at 50 yds and finished sighting in at 100 yds. The day at the range Humidity 60%, Wind out of the South at 10 mph, Temperature 90 degrees. I was...

    Cartridges Wikipedia...

    I know I'm resurrecting and old topic, but I found this glossary interesting. I thought it could help some of the newer shooters on the forum. For us old-timers, it will rekindle some of the stuff we have forgotten. A glossary of bullets goes nicely with this post. I think. :)...

    Will Obama try to outlaw guns?

    John, I used to feel the same way. I have lived in this same home for 20 years. I was the first to move into the area when it was developed. I was lulled into a false sense of security. Most of the homes built afterwards were occupied by lawyers, teacher, and law enforcement. It is a small...

    Will Obama try to outlaw guns?

    The president said, "A lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals -- that they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities," I don't agree. My AKs belong on the street next to me at all times. As far as...

    Will Obama try to outlaw guns?

    I think he just tipped his hand. He will first come after my A.Ks and then he will come for the A.Rs. It is the same thing England did. (divide and conquer) It is more important now than ever that we stand together...

    Gun sales soar. Gee, ya think?

    My local Walmart is going to sell rifles again. Walmart stopped selling firearms around 15 years ago. I wonder what they will be selling. Any ideas? There must be some money to be made for them to start up again. :)

    I need some help with identifying a hole

    There are many ways to dispatch the coyote. This is just one of the most interesting ones I know about. It was once used to commit a murder. :o

    Hog Hunting

    Re: Has anybody hunted hogs with the Tac .22? I hunt hog with a .22 Marlin using cheap brick ammo. I prefer the .22 and hunting the small ones than to a larger caliber for hunting the larger boars. I am in the hunt for the quality of meat. The .22 leaves less damage than a larger caliber...

    "waxed" birdshot

    First, I want to try "cut shells" before I try the waxed shot. I wonder if the wax will build up in the rifling of the barrels or is it intended to be used only on smooth bores. :)

    Is the Maverick still being made?

    You may be right about that. Keep us posted. Don't forget to pickup some ammo for the range report. :)

    Is the Maverick still being made?

    For that price, you might as well get an ATR or 4X4. Maybe a Savage. The price used to be reg. $199.00. Just like everything else, the price has gone up to $245. Prices may be different in your region. :)

    Is the Maverick still being made?

    My local Academy still carries them. They always seem to have one in stock. I would suggest that you go visit the local store (Academy). They don't always advertise them online. If they don't have one on display in the store, ask the associate to check in the storage vault to see if one...

    I have been carrying for 15 years. The state of Texas has only issued licenses for about the past 11 years. It is called Concealed Handgun License (CHL). I have one and put it to use every day. Congratulations on obtaining your license Dan! :)
