Re: September....

I live in town, and we have several cottontails running around the neighborhood. There is a place about a mile away where some folks have about 3 acres in town that is all trees and brush, and I see coyotes going in and out of there all the time. If it were not in town I am sure someone would be ki...

Since I keep my spotting scope tripod etc in the back seat of the truck “so far” I’ve not had that issue :roll:
Watch that!
In extreme high temps the pressure in the scope can expell the gas, later in extreme cold air can be drawn back in.

Re: Any one recall the story as to why Winchester never offered a 35 caliber round based on 30 WCF

How I understood 32 special it was rifled around black powder. I thought the special came before 30/30??
Correction: it was introduced after 30/30 but was designed for folk wanting to use black powder.....probably made more sense back then than now!

Re: Tristar folding shotgun

Personally I dislike the Italian folding single made by Pedretti and others. Many were made with blocks mated to high to the breach so firing pins struck the cap to low. The trigger block is made of cheese and the hammer spring is weak. Often the stocks break due to weak fixing to the action. Just s...

First box according to the lot number is 11/28/85 are you sure the "W" is a "W" ?

Red box is 1/20/75.

They started the Horse and Rider logo in 1983 so the box from 85 is probably old stock being used up.
