    I have a jc Higgins 31 that I inherited from my dad. He bought it new, and I couldn't begin to guess how many squirrels, rabbits, groundhogs, pigs, and who knows whatever else has been shot with it. Wonderfully accurate, and dependable, as long as...

    The 510 series got outsourced to Brazil at one time, and the outsourcing company sold some of them under their own name, Braztec. I have one, and it's sweet, but not as accurate as I'd hoped. I keep thinking about getting a Remington barrel and...

    fixit replied to a thread Pit Bulls Killed My Cat in Our Town
    That pack behavior is why I carry a sidearm when hunting. If I see one dog wandering the woods, I don't worry too much, unless it's showing interest in me, but two or more, my hand is on my weapon in case they "go" for me! Anything resembling a...
