    Please tell me is a slot filler, not a SS LCI. The very first ones did have a metal LCI that could actually discharge the round if struck with enough force, so Ruger changed to plastic.

    My wife and I each have one. Her's is the target model and mine is the hunter model. I've removed the loaded chamber indicator and magazine disconnect from them and installed a slot filler on both. I had a mark II i carried for years, but absolutely...

    Shooting a deer is like shooting a can off a fence post for me. I'm a meat hunter and my number one concern is bullet placement so I don't ruin meat, gut shoot, or have to try and recover a deer from God knows where! The other side to that, is that...

    CWD has been spreading here in West Tennessee two more counties have been put on the hot list since the season started. Hope to heaven the population can be cut by 3/4 soon and put an end to the needless destruction they cause! I'm hoping one day...

    Guess I pecked a nerve there! The only reason they where ever reintroduced was to generate revenue for the game departments! So people harvesting deer do so at the expense of the damage deer cause to other peoples personal property!...

    Thank God! One less deer to hit! I wish some one would kill every deer in the county! Really, how do we justify having free range livestock in the eastern USA? Wrecking cars, damaging crops and spreading livestock disease! Hopefully...

    What a blessing it was to be raised by God fearing parents! I tried to raise mine the same. It sticks a little better with some children than others, but at least they know where to come home to. Let's not forget about that prodigal son.

    I cut the loin in half so each end would fit into a one gallon zip-lock bag. The small end stayed 6 days and I just removed the large end today (9 days). Both seem about the same when cooked. I've been slicing thinly and just cooking until color...

    I removed it from the brine, rinsed it off, and sliced some up for the fry pan tonight. I'd say my first attempt turned out quite good, and reminds me a lot of country ham. It's just a little salty when eaten plain, but it's great on a sandwich!

    I had a fellow church member make a statement to me once, about how he could buy produce so much cheaper than I could grow it. I politely informed him that he couldn't afford to purchase as much as I give away from my bounty every year!

    O my! What a can of worms you've opened there! I've had so many hobbies in my life time is almost ridiculous! RC Airplane building and flying probably coast the most, but II've acquired great skills from many of them. Jewelry making, fly tying,...

    I'm going to miss you here. Go, rest high on the mountain, brother. You helped me so much when my daughter passed just over a year ago. Rest. Comforting prayers for the family, may God's peace reign in your hearts.

    Ok, I've got loin in the cure and was wondering from my Northern brothers if I should bake it(smoke in the cure), or slice and cook like side/belly bacon? Any one have experience for me either way?

    At 58 Y'all are making me feel like a baby! Where I work, most of us have worked together for 30 plus years and we've began to notice that they must be moving the floor down every year, as is harder to get back up from it!

    I whipped up a batch yesterday. They have a flavor profile that is very unusual to an American palate. Quite good, and different. I didn't use this exact recipe, but the key spices are in the one I used.

    I've never frozen grilled bratts, but I have frozen other grilled sausages, hot dogs, and burgers. They do lose an edge when being frozen, but there tolerable. My experts is they tend to dry out rather than get mushy. If your making your own I'd...
