    To All, IF access to firearms was a REAL problem, rather than a FOOLISH/BRAINLESS rant of the FAR LEFT, The Swiss Republic would be knee-deep in blood. Instead, the cities & cantons of SZ are some of the safest/most peaceful on Planet Earth,...

    EMC45, Over an hour & a half after TX DPS notified the main-SLIME media that the 2 weapons were a .38SPL revolver & a shotgun, ALL of the major networks (except Fox) were still saying that the weapon was an AR15. = EMPTY-heads and/or LIARS, one &...

    Lonegun1984, Understood. I find it "interesting" that certain people, who after being informed of the need for an acceptable background & DPS investigation, still try to get by it, when they have "a record". yours, tex

    Lonegun1984, Your employer might very well give you "time off" to go to class. - You will find out, if you ask around, that TMN are "pretty well thought of" by a lot of folks. Our class was 6 hours, 1 day a week, for 10 weeks plus 48 hours of...

    rodwha, While a 9YO could certainly help an adult (who is a MN), I cannot see one being able to complete the TMN training, UNLESS they were eligible for MENSA & maybe not even then. = I have 2 graduate degrees, 3 decades as a LEO & found the...

    NorthMoccasin, Sounds like a really NICE gun. My "little brother" (all 5'10" & 240 pounds of him, btw) loads me a 160 grain "small game load" for my Model 1917 (the so-called American Enfield) rifle & I use it in my Model 760 rifles too. =...

    Outer Rondacker, To quote NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC: "If you don't have hogs now, you will." The SOLE good thing about feral hogs is that the ones to about 100# field dressed are EXCELLENT when BBQed. = Those go on my pit whole & cook overnight. ...

    To All, There are at least two old-school (pre-WWI) rifle cartridges that were manufactured from brass .410 shells. - One was made from 2.5" cases & the other from 3" cases. Both were considered in pre-WWII Europe to be "fully suitable" for...

    Landy88, ImVho, for other than ELEPHANT (I'll never take a tusker.) & perhaps GAUR & CAPE BUFFALO, a "heavy for caliber", relatively hard-cast GCCB, at the maximum velocity that will work well in your rifle, is likely suitable for all big game in...
