    Outback, just a side note, if you are shooting off of your rifle rest and it has a canvas or leather bag, get a piece of leather to cover the bag. I split a front bag one time with a 44 from the cylinder blast. It will damage it over time for sure....

    The humidity here in Alabama makes mowing a real thrill. After I cut 1 acre, I look like some pushed me into the pool. After we got a couple of good snowfalls, this yard took off this spring. I have what we call a 4 beer yard, and that does not...

    Mine was a bright nickel N frame and I do mean BRIGHT. I guess I am kinda like a raccoon- if its shiney, I love it! My only reconciliation is that I still have a no dash 586 and I will keep that one till they put me in a box. And a 686 that thinks...

    I just had to revive this old thread to scold myself for trading off my Rem 788 44 mag. Why, oh why do I do these things? I traded it for a Ruger OM 41 mag in 99% condition + some $(cant remember how much). Yep, you guessed it, the Ruger's gone too....

    Well, am44mag, you have got me thinking. I would love a peep rear on my FM Mauser 30-06 with a fiber optic front. It's got to be the fastest sight around and a lot handier to carry than a scope sighted rifle. As luck would have it, my rifle prefers...

    That "snap top" can of Hi-Vel brings back memories of my first reloading press, a Lyman Vandallia, that I used to load shotshells with when I was a young'un in 1960. Red Dot came in the same type can and I used enough of it to decimate the squirrel...
