I went on a shopping spree on Fri. I bought a Ruger .357 revolver and a Bushmaster AR15 in .223 cal. That was an expensive BUT fun day. I bought the .357 to carry on me bowhunting and to keep in the nightstand at home and I am really not sure why I bought the AR15. Oh yeah, the election. Dull

Anyone else bought anything lately? Lets hear what, why, ect!!!!! Smile

I blocked Trapp and hopefully he can no longer see my posts either.

Well HardCore...I'm pretty broke up over that and I'm sure the sporting community in general misses your wisdom. But the fact remains that the post is not close to the subject matter. Tell me I'm wrong.

Savage axis 243 from Dicks sporting goods. Not bad. I am impressed with it. Nice groups so far. Can drill a quarter at 50 yards with the cheap bushnell scope it comes with. For a first deer rifle on a smaller framed female or youngster the price is right. i may use it on yotes. Smile I will let you know ballistic findings on the big buck my girl will shoot this year. 100 GR remingtons will be tested and examined psp. Will let you let you know if I change to this for yotes instead of a 223 or 22-250.

Been thinking about getting .22 handgun, but was stuck debating between Browning Buckmark vs. Mk. III, even thought about revolvers, too until I stumbled across a like-new Sig P229 in .22LR. The proverbial deal I couldn't refuse, as the saying goes, lol.

Now gotta finish paying for it, hope to get it within the next few weeks. With that solid alloy frame, it should be a real shooter!

Where can I purchase a pair of those sunglasses? To make it legal, I purchased another Taurus PT740 Slim. I carry the wifes so much, she told me to get my own.

My shooting partner just tested his custom 284Win at 400/500 yds for grins from a supported rest. After running the ballistics program for his load, he zeroed @ 100yds as best he could for a 250yd dead on zero and then had to elevate 32" at 500yds with his std duplex reticle. The 400/500yd groups came up a bit low, but still showed adequate accuracy just holding off into space to hit the targets. 154SST @ 2959fps.

Bugle. Start reloading. I've done some cool stuff with the Sweet 16. You've been through college congrates.Follow the books it can hit as hard as a 12 and swing like a 20. I have a 16 ga. LeFever that is awesome and just picked up a 12 LeFever (circa 1923)and honed the chokes. My 30-45 yrd. devistator the way it patterns.

Got this AR pistol built a few weeks ago. Just finished my dad's this past week. He sure liked shooting it yesterday. Man are these things fun.

Ditto, with .410 ammo that expensive and only getting more expensive for sure you should dump that thing fast. I being the nice guy I am would be willing to take if off your hands for a modest price - otherwise I couldn't afford ammo for it. Big Smile Seriously I've always wanted a 42 but could never find one for a resonable price. Crying

I had the same experience when I pulled Grandpa's old Iver-Johnson 410 out the gun cabinet to do recon and suppression of the red squirrels terrorizing my soffits up north. I'da just used the 20 gauge but it rips up my pine branches too much.

I have a 16 gauge that I haven't used since duck hunting in college 20 years ago. I wonder what a box of those go for now.

IN my ast post I sid that I bought a little Winchestr M42 in 410, I figured I would shoot a couple rounds of skeet with it this Thursday. I went to Gander today to get some ammo and was in shock. I knew 410 ammo was pricey compared to 12 or 20 gauge but I wasn't ready for $21.95 a box for Remington 3" #6 shot! Thankfully they had soe 2-1/2" Fiochi's for $9.99 as I don't know if I could have allowed myself to spend $22 a box for 410 shells.
