Gun nuts still in here? Ruger mark 3 or Browning Buckmark?

PostBy: LsFarm On: Fri Sep 28, 2007 9:37 am

I just HAD to add a few pics to the list. I did a quick rummage through the closets, [forgot under the beds], the shelves in the reloading room and the corners of the reloading room

As you can see, I'm 'into' long guns, with scopes mostly. I prefer Remington 700's or variations of them. I do a lot of my own smithing and tuning. Triggers, bedding, stock swaps, scope installs etc. Most are .22 or .243 cal, a few 6.5mm and .30. Several .223, 22-250, 243win, several are 'Ackley Improved' chambers too.

Most of my handguns are ones that 'just came my way'. Two or three I wanted and purchased. My favorite from a quality standpoint is the Stainless Colt Python .357. My carry gun is the S&W model 59, or the Colt .45 model 1911. The others are 'collectable' guns. I forgot several, one I can think of is my Beretta 22Longrifle Model 70, a VERY nice pistol.

I've always wanted a .22LR revolver to carry around the farm, but haven't aquired a rough one to carry around yet.

I used to have more control of my time and schedule [and income] with my previous [salary] job. So I used to go to Wyoming in late May or early June for a Coyote and PrarieDog shoot. Quite a pilgramage. But a lot of fun. I usually shot 1500-2500 rounds over 3-5 days, depending on weather. Ranges usually 100-500 yds. Out west I had several pastures that I shot out to 1500yds. VERY hard to hit anything out that far. Wind, mirage, minor load variations etc become 6'-12' errors out that far.

I have plenty of farmyard ground hogs that try to move in, they suffer from highspeed lead poisoning pretty quick. My biggest problem right now is a da*n red squirel that has found a way into the crawl spaces under the house and is chewing on everything. I've tried traps, poison, and have managed to shoot at least two, but I'm pretty sure I still have one in the crawl.. Rats with furry tails, and smart too!!

Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

Tee Hee!!!

Thats like when my wife suggests that I shouldn't drink on an empty stomach....

And then I reassure her to not worry....I was only gonna have a healthy portion of distilled potatos! :roll: :P

Been there. Done that!
