    From what I've read, the Pilgrims didn't have turkey for their thanksgiving. They had venison, and sea food as their meats. Their firearms were standard matchlock muskets, (flaired muzzles or not, I do not know) maybe about 20 of them all...

    My P-80, (G-17) had a few birthing pains, but all were related to finding good, affordable upper parts. I cut my frame and drilled the holes on a mill, installed a Glock lower kit from Brownells and kept looking for reasonable priced upper parts...

    I don't even use an A-R for a house gun, that's how my M-1 carbine and Ithaca 37 riot gun earn their keep.

    Years ago I took advantage of a bargan bin at a local gun shop and picked up 2,000 .44 1/8'' Alcan card wads for $2.00. I'm not sure of their intended purpose, but they work wonderfully in .44 Magnum cases for shot shells. If intended for .410...

    Your plan has truth to it, in a savings account at the bank your interest rate is about 3-4X LESS than the inflation rate, so you may as well put your money into ''precious'' metals.

    In actual shooting, Lloyd. All it does is provide you with a second option of releasing the bolt, you have the same bolt release on the left side, plus you can yank the handle and release it on a fresh magazine if desired, like on an A-K and use it...

    Yup, I avoid it mid May to October, and when I do go, I'm most likely to take the Tanneytown or Emmitsburg RD. exits and come in from the South avoiding the town and diamond.

    I've burned a few cans of it and found it to be a good powder in a lot of cartridges, (like 5744) but not the best in any, (like 5744). I still have a few cans, I think they're 1/2lb cans, not 1lb. as I recall, and that'll probably last me the rest...

    Appalachain Trail is almost at my doorstep, Grand Canyon of PA is within driving distance, and the Gettysburg Battlefield is within an hour drive. A French and Indian War fort was just a few miles away, an Indian village existed within a quarter...

    I'm too old for this stuff. Since they let in so many social members, I don't even go to the Legion or Vets anymore let alone a public house.

    Try Guns International, they're a little more reasonable, under ''Remington Nylon Rifles''.

    We found the Brits got a lot of things right in their Enfield's, one of those things was not bothering with a clean out screw. A clean out screw is a solution to a non-existant problem. Anyone is welcome to their own opinion, but I've never had an...

    I think you did well, and probably what I would have done under the same.

    After injuring my right shoulder again, getting an Enfield up to shoot is somewhat difficult and painful, an 1863 Springfield is no problem though.

    Depends on your build and how you hold them. I have several original Enfields I've shot in N-SSA comp. and managed to shoot them very well, usually scoring in the mid 90's in individual bull's-eye targets.

    Most likely it was Remington's full power load of 40gr. +/- in a balloon head case topped with a 250gr. swaged flat nose conical bullet which was available in factory ammunition in to the 1930's at least. As I recall velocity in a 7.5'' barrel was...

    I live in PA and when I go afield, usually with a dog and a 4'' S&W 629-3 .44 Magnum loaded with RCBS 44-250-K boolits at around 1,000fps. (think 10gr. Unique here). If a self loading pistol would be in order, my first choice would be a 10mm loaded...
