  1. Congrats on a great hunt! Thanks for sharing your story and pictures. This kind of hunting is on my bucket list. My wife might actually do it with me. She gets aggravated sitting still waiting on whitetails. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It sounds like your situation was a little worse than mine but you are wise to not allow yourself to play the victim card and sit back and feel sorry for yourself. It would be easy to do so but never gratifying. I pray that somebody will benefit from your experience and mine and choose wisely. None of us are promised another day here on this earth so we should use the time, talents and health we're given wisely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I suspect mine are still a little less than they were but I've healed to the point that my hand doesn't shake anymore and I have enough strength back in my left hand to DL all I care to without straps. It's still not as strong as it was and I suppose it never will be but I'm probably 90%. This is why it's important to deal with these things quickly rather than being "tough" like I was and paying the price for it for the rest of your life. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    This is good advice. I too had to have cervical spine surgery because of ruptured, bulging discs. My spine had actually compressed and my discs were rubbing on my nerves causing me to have numbness in my hands. Eventually the pain got so bad that I could not sleep at all without pain meds AND sleeping pills. Thankfully I was able to have surgery very shortly after that. I was back in the gym less than six weeks later. This was over ten years ago and I had a fusion. I just missed out on the disc replacements. I've heard really good things about what they're able to do now. It's good that you haven't waited too long to address this. It took years for my nervous system to get back to normal. Nerves take a long time to heal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    6.5 Grendel Magazines

    Thanks guys. I'll check those out. I'll be shooting off a bench for zeroing and some for fun but mostly I will be hunting with this rifle so 15 should be enough most of the time. [emoji12] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Veterans' Day

    Army Veteran OIF Thank you to all of those here who have served or are serving. I retired last year. Bittersweet. My brothers in arms are still some of my closest friends. Even those who I haven't seen in years. I have served with a lot of service members from different countries through the years. Some good and some bad but I can tell you this, I feel incredibly blessed to be an American and to have had the opportunity to serve this great country that offers us, even now, unparalleled freedoms. My prayer is that we are found worthy to keep said freedoms. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry Chris. I wasn't ignoring you. Work has been crazy and kids and church have taken up the rest of the time. I did get your Vizard's sale. Still didn't buy any. I actually just got a little time to finish putting the rifle together this afternoon. I should've taken pics and all of that but I'm not good at slowing down to chronicle things. I tend to just do. Haha. I may order some tonight. I should get a chance to go shoot this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The ELD was $21.99 in Cabela's today. It was the cheapest Grendel they had. Gonna have to get on Vizard's this weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The eclipse

    My kids are really excited about it. I think I'm close to being in the path of it. I heard it will be best just over the state line into TN but haven't done enough research to really know yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What kind of scope is that? Gonna be a minute before my budget allows for me to add some glass which is going to be tough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    If Larue's IT guy runs a report of how many times I've checked my order over the past few days since I placed my order he'll have a good laugh. Haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
