    Idaho45guy replied to a thread Just Curious? in Our Town
    I've never heard of "heads" or knew anyone that used that term, and I've lived all over the US. Including Hawaii. I was able to score a couple of boxes of Hornady .355 115 grain bullets a few months ago from a guy at work who sent his wife to...

    I hunted a few seasons in Iowa with a .54 caliber muzzleloader with a 70 yard range. Been there, done that. It's easy and a walk in the park compared to out here. The farthest I ever had to walk was less than a mile. This was my first elk,...

    Dating sites... Yeah... Tried those. When my ex wanted a divorce, I was living in Arizona. After the shock wore off, I went on a dating site to see if there were other women out there in my age range and single. That was ten years ago. I typed...

    It's like the ladies that ask me jokingly if I'm old enough to buy alcohol at the checkout. I always say I'm old enough to buy it, but not old enough to know better.

    Great post! No, I don't smoke. I quit a couple of years ago, then kicked nicotine completely in February. The woman really is sweet, and treats me well. She just has a lot of habits and thought processes that require more grace than I...

    All pistols get bench rested at 25 yards when determining loads and capabilities. Then, they get shot off-hand from 25 down to 7 yards. All my handguns are for defense, except my .22 pistol. I don't own any hunting handguns. But if I lived in...

    That's an interesting perspective. She also said she wanted to get hair extensions, which is $700. I told her it was her money and if she could afford it then go for it. But the intentionally subjecting herself to tanning, when she just beat skin...

    Idaho45guy replied to a thread Best "Truck Gun" lube in Our Town
    The problem is that the gun is sitting on the carpet, which is on the floor, which means there is a temperature differential, which causes moisture to form on the contact surfaces and causes rust. I leave my pistol in my center console much of the...

    Just binge-watched that season this week. It was a great one, and the person I bet on winning in the beginning actually won. Alone is different, as is Les Stroud's Survivorman, because there is no camera crew. The participants have to film...

    Took my new Ruger Predator in .308 out to the range to try my newest loads in an effort to get it down to 1/2 MOA at 100 yards. Last trip had it turn in a 7/8" group, which is acceptable for hunting, but I suspected the rifle was capable of...

    Deliverance was just a disturbing movie, and I didn't see it until I was well into my 30's, about 25 years after it came out. Prior to that, I knew Ned Beatty as Otis from Superman. Then as the bad guy in Shooter. May he rest in peace.
