Re: Protests - the next level?

I guess this is the next level torturing a puppy on live TV to protest the death of a man in police custody. Caution. I did not - could not - dig into the very far, but such a person that would torture an animal as "protest" is a psychopath that should be put down asap. I totally agree! That is the...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

https://apnews.com/ba9578acf23bdb03fd51a2b81f640560 Trump says something about authority to open up country again. State governors apparently differ. I found this one to be an interesting argument. If Trump cannot issue orders to close (and he did not, just guidelines), then he can't issue orders t...

Re: The great Texas Novel

They came out and visited me, asking many questions: can you give us a description of the kidnappers? ; did you get their license plate number? ; what kind of vehicle were they driving? ; and a whole lot more. Then they shined a funny light in my eye and I don't remember anything else.

Re: Effective Range of a .54 Cal Muzzleloader with Round Balls?

What's the effective range on whitetail deer of a .54 cal muzzleloader (Lyman GPR) using .530 balls (about 225 grains). The powder charge will be enough 777 ffg to give me a muzzle velocity of around 1800 fps. I think that should do the job on our Central Texas whitetails out to about 100 yards, bu...

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

I've never been smart enough to predict when the a problem arises, or TEOTWAWKI. Now, at the first time I notice that something ain't right...I mean the very first inkling, that is when I have bought a gun, or some ammo...in the past. I have to admit,I was caught flat footed during the extended ammo...
