    This is the kind of trick question that always makes the answer depend on one's opinion of the person in question. But personally, I don't believe ol' Elmer would have been satisfied with anything that wasn't 2" or better at 50 yds. from a rest. ...

    A friend of mine has probably done 100 or more of this type of repair, and he just goes to his box of odd parts and springs and screws, and can usually come up with a spring that will work, or can be cut to fit and work. If not, he just sends them...

    Kudos to you, Crash! You did very well indeed! First in not shooting and thinking of your neighbors' safety. Then in firing the shot in the air so as to make shooting in a potentially dangerous direction unnecessary (thankfully!). Then in making...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Truck gun in Our Town
    For me, a "truck gun" is one I can access quickly and easily. That shouts "handgun" to me. The classic gun-in-the-glovebox is the easiest and in many ways best solutions, except for being more easily stolen. But that's what I do much of the time,...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Boat gun in Our Town
    All sorts of answers to this question, according to what you expect to need/want to do with the gun. My favorite "river gun" is a Ruger Mk II std. model with the barrel chopped to @ 4" and with a Lyman shorty ramp and 1/16" white bead front sight. ...

    Fear is, has always been, and will always be, a real killer. Fear keeps us from doing what we know we should. It makes us slink away from the things we know we ought to say or do. "Shyness" is NOT a virtue! We need to be calmly and assuredly...

    Quote: "The world watches with great interest when a Christian faces adversity." Wow! This is truly a significant statement! We "witness" in many ways, and the way we live our daily lives, and the way we act when adversity calls, is probably...

    I've always been the sort in the old "joke" about the man who prayed for patience, and ended his prayer by saying, " ... and I want it right now!" Thanks for this lesson. Patience has never been my strong suit. So He taught me patience. ...

    Paul in the Bible reminds me of the mythical "everyman." At some time or point in our lives, I think we all experience the same sorts of things as Paul did. Maybe not quite as clearly consequential as what we often meet, but in terms of our values...

    Oftentimes, a near death experience has a significant effect on folks like your daughter, Lloyd. I'm praying for a full healing, not only of her body, but her spirit as well. Just love her when she comes out of this. That's the more important...

    God always takes better care of us than we do for our own selves! If we can't recognize this, then we're looking through the prism of our own desires.

    Amen to all. We have our plans, but God has His, too, and even if it requires letting our own plans go, it's always best to follow God's will for us. Success without God's blessing will always be an empty thing, in the end.

    Wow! Death awaits all of us eventually, and sometimes it comes in strange and unusual ways. God be with the family of this good man, whose labors touched us all in one way or another. Amen.

    You're no the only one RL! It's all we CAN do, really. Some don't like it much when I say we don't stop being human just because we make a profession of faith. Not hardly! Yes, we ARE changed by that, but our essential human nature, and all...

    We used to have snipe regularly in the marshy part of my uncle's pond, right next to our house with a half mile hike. I LOVED hunting them. They'd flush wild way ahead of my dog, and you had to be ready because they hit the air going nearly full...

    More conventional cast bullets and WFN types are two very different type bullets. Veral's babies are cast very hard, so as to cut instead of tear flesh, as most other bullet types tend to do to greater or lesser degrees. 44man once posted his...
