    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Sounds exactly like someone I know. Haven't seen my bench since I built it. When I got all the equipment mounted I took a step back and smiled as I looked at it because I knew from experience I'd never see it that way again.

    I get to see scenes like that, Longhair. Only problem is they are just over the fence in a State Park where hunting is by bow only............and I don't shoot a bow. Fun to watch them though. Good luck on your goal.

    Here it comes! Republican proposes new gun law

    I'm so sick of the "Gooberment" that I'm about to puke in my mouth................and I'll spit it at the first Gooberment official I see!!!!!!!!!! Stay away from my rights. Stay out of my personal business! Stay away from my firearms! Stay away from my wife! Stay away from my tractor! (pretty much in that order!!!!!) What the H**l has happened to our country?????? How has this happened? I was taught "Right wins out in the end." I'm beginning to believe that the "loudest" wins in the end. Tain't right. Truly tain't!

    Happy thought for today.

    Amen to that, NONEYA.

    How about completely solving the problem, not with gun control but with kid control. All children growing up in a home where firearms are available should be taught to leave them alone until they can be taught to use them responsibly. If a kid is so out of hand he can't handle those rules, then it's time for some proper parenting. If that doesn't work and you have a mentally unstable kid in the house then it's time for mental health referral. Too darned many people are afraid to say so when their children need mental health assistance.

    I never get to hunt. But I sure enjoy knowing if I did, I could do well.

    Swedish Mauser 6.5 x 55

    I bought a Swedish Mauser from my Cousin, who is a gunsmith, way back in the late 80's. Pretty rifle, with a 1-5 Leupold scope. Brand new barrel from the Swedish Armory before it was retired. He cut the barrel off at the barrel band which makes for a great deer rifle......................though I've hardly used it, and definitely not hunted with it. I've shot this rifle very little.............seldom enough I'm embarrassed. Finally started trying to work up a load for it this week and got to shoot it today. I ran a 9 shot ladder test in .5 gr increments, and was very pleased. The test was 9 shots and the #5, 6, 7 and 8 were in one hole (1/2 ") at 100 yds. I'm going to go back and reload in .2 gr increments to see how it turns out. These were 140 gr Nosler partition bullets, so I'll end up with a very reliable Deer round out of it. Anxious to work up some lighter bullets for varmints. Think I would do a lot better with my Nikon 4-12 Buckmaster scope, but in Oklahoma we don't need scopes that powerful for Deer because our shots aren't usually that long................though it would be helpful for varmints. Anyone else have a Swede they like to shoot?

    Okay, I get that. I, too, was wondering why you didn't want that more tender Doe meat. Good on you for honoring your old hunting partner. Speaks volumes about your relationship.

    Snow in Dixie!

    We haven't had a "Real Winter" in Oklahoma for about the past 10 years. Mostly Mother Nature just puts two inches on the ground and it's gone by that afternoon with little patches left in the shadows. Can't stand having it cold and not getting to enjoy the snow. Typically OK has lots of cold wind and one or two ice storms and we call that Winter! Disgusting. If any of you have some extra snow, I'd like for you to send it to me so I can go to the Pub in the snow like the picture j-dub posted.................now THAT's my kind of Winter.

    New gun parts bill

    We can only hope. We've not yet seen the judicial rulings of the Supreme Court as it is occupied today. Only time will tell.

    Don't want to throw a pile of "horse puckies" on that statement, but even when you do vote, the anti-law-abiding Liberals cheat good people out of their choice of candidates. Several recounts bring that to mind.
