    Nice rifle! Reminds me a lot of the Winchester model 70 from the 40's.

    Budweiser Repeal Reserve Amber Lager

    Nice color, good clarity, but too much caramel malt flavor in my estimation. And it only comes in a 6 pack that I ever saw?

    What book is on your nightstand? Readers!

    I started writing a book about being afield to hunt, fish, and what it's been like to experience nature while doing so. Why those who don't should be more tolerant and try to understand. Then someone who, I guess, remembered my mentioning it, posted this on my Facebook home page...

    Merry Christmas HBT!

    Hope everybody's having a Merry Christmas? Doing pretty good. Went to Dr Friday & got ultrasound/pressure test results. The two large, old blood clots in my left thigh finally dissolved! Left leg/hip feels better, but back & right leg, not so much. But, 1 outta 3 ain't too bad? Also, Santa left...

    Anybody like Slot Cars?

    Man, is it rare to see people building home tracks anymore!? I still have my 1/24 & 1/25 scale big track race cars, controllers, pit box, armature timer, etc. Also, my Parma controller I built from a kit with multiple resistors, mosfets, 3 position resistance switch that acted like a 3-speed...

    A funny thing happened on the way to the closet

    About two weeks ago I was given the e-mail to multi national airgun shooting champion Ron Robinson. He made scope mounts for various Crosman airguns back to 1955. 160 to 187. He sold me his last set from his personal stash & they just got here a lil bit ago. So here's the 70's Weaver V22-A...

    Gardening Frustrations__ The season of the Varmint

    Ah,ok, thanks. I obviously got it backwards. But these new era, magnum air guns have plenty of power for game of any size, depending on the caliber & type of gun. PCP's are the most powerful, but also the most expensive. Then there are the break barrel " springers" nitro gas piston, Co2, & pumps.
