    There's NO place like home ...

    I took probably 2K of pictures; we landed late last night and as soon as I get them all sorted out, I'll do a sampler.

    There's NO place like home ...

    Believe me that crossed my mind way too often; we subscribed to an automatic update from US embassies where we were traveling.
  3. ... the good ole US of A. My wife and I took a couple of weeks traveling in the EU. We enjoyed it very much but it is ALWAYS nice to be back home. Cheers!

    Rifle caliber

    I was OK with all of it until you included "long range in the mix". As noted in my response #28, the .300 WM is my go to chambering. My last MT bull elk harvest was at 931 yards with 190 Berger VLD. Shot placement is still the key but sometimes Murphy gets on the way; it took my hunting buddy two passed through shot at lungs and needed a third shot at the front shoulder using 180 Barnes TTSX off his .300 WM at less than 100 yards before the elk finally expired. Every situation is different, both bullets used worked as advertised but the elk expired differently. I do however, agree that it boils down to personal preference. Cheers!

    Rifle caliber

    Please take no offense but long range shooting (targets) is not the same as long range hunting esp. on elk size game ... ... I'm a big 6.5/.264 fan but I will take my .300 WM or larger anytime when it comes to elk.

    Gun Test: Savage Hog Hunter

    I used my SKS with a bayonet hunting javelinas when I was stationed in AZ.

    Compact bow and arrows?

    I don't know the poundage but for $25 I can hit the target at 30 yards ...

    Rifle caliber

    I too like the .308 caliber (.30C (7.62x33), 7.62x39,.30-30, .308 Win, .30-06, .300 WSM, .300 WM, and .30 LARA); the .300 WM remains my go to chambering for antelope to elk size game up to 1K yards.

    My wireless router died

    I had a similar experience and went ahead and changed my router. My router is nearly 5 years old, still works but have noticed, it has slowed down significantly. I went with http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/Archer-C8.html (paid $49.99 for it) and it shows significant improvement.
