    I added a spacer to my Hawken. I have it sighted in out to 300 and think I can get out to at least 500 with my set up. I did bend my hammer. I heated it up and slipped a piece of small pipe over it and moved it to where I wanted it. ...

    Yes I do most of my hunting in a blind. The length of time depends. After the little ones come out I bet I don't have to wait more than about 5 or 10 minutes. Later in the season it might take an hour. This guy I waited almost 2 hours for him but...

    I wanted the strongest mount possible. I had a one piece UTG mount that I didn't know was giving me trouble. I knew I had trouble with the sighting system but I didn't think it was the mount. I replaced the scope last year and while the new scope...

    The barrel has a shroud and it does have a silencer. That said the spring is louder than the shot.

    Today I was home and I walked outside to the garbage can. A farmer down the street stopped and sounded mad. He said why haven't you been shooting rock chucks at my place? I said because you haven't asked me to! We both laughed and he asked me to...

    idahoron replied to a thread sizing bullets? in Muzzleloading.
