    No idea; haven't seen them available for over a year. My FFL has a little shop attached to his house and has 2 cases of CCI small rifle primers that some local guy brought in to scalp. They are $100 per 1000.

    Hiking sticks are a good idea! My grandkids are 300 miles away in the Occupied Zone formerly known as Seattle. They are looking at moving even further away to Colorado next year, which would be awful.

    I pride myself on not being like my grandparents, who bought me gifts that were completely awful. I remember back in 1980 or so, all I wanted was a black leather jacket like Fonzi from Happy Days. They got me a brown pleather jacket that went...

    That is awesome! Great pickup! My buddy had a `59 in high school that he paid $1700 for. He sold it a few years ago and boasted that he doubled his money. I was sad to inform him that it was actually worth much, much more than that...

    That is awesome! Restful sleep is something I took for granted when I was younger. Wish I could afford a sleep number, but decent memory foam beds are usually good enough. I hope your wife continues to enjoy good sleep!

    I don't do Black Friday shopping since I work Swings and getting up before 10 am is not going to happen. So, I stay up late and try to find deals online. I did not find a whole lot of deals. Spent money, but it was for items I needed anyways....

    Pistol arrived today and is thinner than my G29, but 1/4" longer. It is 1/4" shorter than my G23. Got them confused. Not sure what to think of it. Feels good, points well, great trigger, good sights, right size, but just seems so much bigger...

    Good point. Probably going to see a huge increase of predation of livestock and domestic animals. Good time to make sure you are competent with your woods gun.

    And I don't understand why my local gun shop, which has been historically about 10% over online prices, is selling Hornady XTP 180gr 10mm bullets for $24.99, while Brownell's is selling them for $32.49. Something stinks. I think the online big...
