    I do not own any lever actions that are more than 55 years old. Newest one is 15 years old.

    I am in my late sixties and started selling things about 10 years ago. I have less than half of what I used to own in guns and reloading stuff. No regrets at all. More downsizing expected. I still own guns I rarely if ever shoot so...

    The Jews rejected Him because they thought the Messiah would be associated with a specific series of events that have not yet occurred, including the return of Jews to their homeland and the rebuilding of The Temple, a Messianic Age of peace. Jews...

    dverna replied to a thread Unique in 357 Mag in Cast Boolits
    Number of years is irrelevant...number of rounds is what matters. Did he shoot 500 per year or 5,000? 10,000 rounds or 100,000 over 20 years.

    I became a Christian a few years ago and my experience was much different. I was affected by how my sins have hurt the people around me. Never once was I concerned about how I had sinned against God. Now, after a few years, I am more...

    Unconditional love comes from dogs too....if people were more like dogs it would be a better world. Must be a reason Adam used the backward spelling of God to name the dog.

    Agree 100%. Shot 10's of thousands of .38's and never trimmed a case. For optimum accuracy, I would taper crimp and that is what I did years ago when shooting Bullseye. I not longer have the Star, and use a 1050 with the Dillon dies now and use...

    People think I am nuts putting $300+ scopes on hunting rifles but I want not only good optics but some abuse resistance on a gun I hunt game with. Just not in my budget to spend that kind of money of a .22 scope. I just bought a 3-9 Vortex...

    There are people I cannot love. I am lucky that I do no longer hate anyone, but have a dose of dislike for a few. It is a good post RL69. Much to learn from it.

    Agree with DG. Makes little sense to buy a .357 to hunt with unless you are in caliber/cartridge restricted zone. I have three .38/.357 lever actions and they are great fun and predator guns. I can kill a deer with them...but why? I have...

    I am not a fan of the 50 rd mags either. Might have some use for rabbit hunting but you would think 10 shots are going to be plenty. I have two 10/22's but never had an itch for the takedown model. I do not backpack so even if I had one, I...

    It has been a weird year in my part of MI as well. The harvest is way down. A father and daughter who normally harvest 10 deer a year only got 2 this year during rifle season. I only harvest one a year as that is all I want, but normally see...

    dverna replied to a thread 357 mag in Single Shot Guns
    There was a member here that put a silencer on a ..38/.357 lever action. It always seemed to me that it would be a very good survival/SHTF weapon. Add a Sig Romeo dot sight (currently selling for $100) would make a fine addition. I have...
