    I usually loaded mine down to .45-70 levels. With Rugers, you may want to check if it was a model where the bolt locks when on safety, or not. I had a .338 WM that didn't, and found when in rough brushy terrain, the bolt could be pulled open...

    I have a very unbilbical and mathmatical concept of heaven. It simply is - imagine yourself as a point - one dimensional, unable to even see a line. Then someone comes along and tells you there is such a thing as a sphere! How do you handle it? ...

    A few years ago, I had already shot smoothbore for score, and for fun went with a group of friends to shoot the course again. Being a bit of a smart ***, I shot the course left handed, and still beat the others scores! They are still whining about...

    I just take any scrap wood, and rough one out when needed. As we know, files and rasps aren't cheap. The ones I use most cost from $50-70 each. I also use Bogg's for sharpening.

    MN allows face to face for residents on handguns. No FFL required unless you purchase them for resale. Than you are in business and need an FFL.

    Nope, for my Encore Katadin. They are making me a forearm as well to fit the barrel. They also move the scope mount forward a little - one of their options.

    Surrender is an act of the will, and, if truly surrender, I have nothing to say about the outcome. I simply trust God to catch and carry me, set me on my feet, and walk with me.
