    Mine as well but in .223. I have the factory plastic stock so I do not care if it gets a bit of rough handling...but it is a light carrying rifle.

    One feature I would like to see is when you click on a topic, it takes you to the last post your viewed. I am on a Tractor forum that has that feature, and it is nice not to have to scroll through posts to find where you left off. As to the...

    dverna replied to a thread Squirrels in Hunting with CB's
    Red squirrels are just pests where I live. This year the squirrel population seems down. I was blaming porcupines for debarking a nice big maple when I was told the squirrels chew the bark off for nesting material and even eat it. Seemed far...

    I have a Winchester Model 52 sporter. Had not shot it in years and put a few rounds through it yesterday. There is something about shooting a that little gun that I find appealing. Part of it may be I used to shoot a Target M52 in smallbore...

    12 miles does not seem like much of a drive unless it is through a big city. Something to be said for a hot shower in the morning and a place to do your business at night. Guess I am showing my age...LOL

    I believe the ventless wall mounted propane heaters will put water vapor into the space. When you leave and shut the heater down, that vapor will condense and you may have more rust issues than normal. I would go with electric heat but I can...

    Ickiszrulz, You always make me think.... Just curious. Your comment about "There is no time given for the fall of the angels. It could have happened a billion years after their creation." leads me to believe you do not believe that creation...

    I believe God did not start or stop His creations with earth. I also believe He is not perfect, and learned from his "mistakes" with each iteration of creation.

    I am not sure why He created evil but He created everything. Maybe we need evil so we can appreciate goodness. Just as we need darkness to appreciate light. Or hate to appreciate love. Many believe the first sin occurred when Adam and Eve...

    I will be doing things differently this year. Wood is split and placed in IBC totes. The bottom of the plastic bin is cut off and an access window cut in one side. Access opening is also cut out of the long side of the IBC cage. The plastic bin...
