    Just some history on the NRA Sporter. The complete history of these guns is in the book entitled "The Springfield 1903 Rifle" by Lt Col. William S. Brophy Ret. But this is just some of it to acquaint some of us to the existence of such a piece of...

    I have a 2 pole Trigger stick and it is nice but I wish I would have bought the 3 pole tripod version as it will stand up by itself. The others won't and when you are trying to get set up for a shot and you have to fumble around with your gun and...

    How big is that suction cup? The smallest I found at Mc Master-Carr was 1" in Dia. with an 8-32 screw in the middle. However a search on Amazon or similar places Ali Baba in your neck of the woods might yield a different product that is close to...

    Gotta tell a story: One Saturday Morning about 30 years ago,,, I heard all this squawking out in the front yard. Grabbed my HW77 and chucked up a H&N .22 cal Match Pellet (Flat Nose) went out on the front porch to see what was causing the...

    That is correct for mailing a long gun to someone else. It is not correct if you are sending it to yourself for hunting. I mail rifles to Alaska to myself and back to myself . It's easier than taking them thru multiple airlines. ...

    The .458 Win Mag works very well as a belted .45-70 and .45-70 loads work just fine on the lower end. Obviously Full Tilt loads are going to be much hotter,,, but a Full Tilt .45-70 load is still well below a Full Tilt .458 Win Mag load, so you...

    OK for your 870,,, "If" you have the plastic stock. Remington has a super squishy Gel Type Recoil Pad that will bolt right on. If you have Magpul Stocks then Magpul sells an adapter that allows you to mount one of these pads. I have one on each...

    Trailboss from what I have read does not like to be compressed so even with a two step chamber it may not be a great choice.

    Those of you without Airguns or can't afford one, But are really wanting to shoot Iguanas, should realize that a Decent Slingshot will fill the bill just fine. You are a little more limited in range but can still be effective inside 25 yards. A...

    Nobody says you have to use a PCP gun. A decent Springer would work just fine, and you could be up and running for under $500 for a decent gun. MY R1 is a solid 75 yard gun and I have hit targets as far out as 100 yards with it. Trajectory is...

    The 6.5 JDJ is based on a 225 Winchester so a 30/30 Marlin would have the proper extractor. The issue is proper bullets for a tube mag. I don't believe Marlin even made a Model 336 in a .444 Marlin. It had it's own model designation of model...

    Before this I was able to find 225 Win brass for a reasonable price. I have both at 225 and 6.5 JDJ.
