My 2 cents: All things considered, +1 on the 270.

Looks like an arrow to me too.

That one really does look to be in fine shape. Nice. Have you shot it yet?

Cool. I've thought about about getting one for the past year or two. Are they as fun to shoot as you would think?

I saw this article about current legislative repercussions of the Toronto shooting going on now. I would urge all you guys up there in Canada to contact your government officials and create a voice of opposition before it's too late. Link below:

That kind of stuff is always fun to do. Decades ago, a friend and I did similar stuff on old car brakes with a 30.06. Went through 1/4 inch steel like it was butter.

If you're house shopping, three important things to look for to be in good working order for Texas summers are: Air Conditioner, swimming pool & lawn sprinkler system! All will get a lot of use.

By a rough barrel, I was referring to a barrel that was either not manufactured to high quality standards from the factory (not likely on a Weatherby) and does not have a smooth bore finish, which picks up copper like crazy - or a barrel that was neglected and has pitting/corrosion damage from long-term abuse/lack of cleaning. Try Boretech Eliminator to clean your barrel - it's one of the best.

This just isn't normal. Two shots in a short time frame shouldn't cause any notable issues with heat or accuracy. Have you inspected the bore thoroughly? A rough bore could do such things; increased friction generates increased heat and a rough bore grinds a lot of copper off every bullet too.

Of course all barrels get hot, but that seems a bit much after one or two shots. I have a Vanguard in 30.06 with a standard #2 contour barrel and two shots in the space of a minute or so doesn't make it very hot. Are you shooting really hot handloads?

Interesting. Also heard of these but never saw one. Kind of a mini bazooka with no explosive.

Interesting article. I'm going to have a look at my tires. As far as phones go, I always keep all that location crap turned off at all times.

Never saw that movie, as it stars Stallone, the biggest hypocrite gun hater in Hollywood. He uses guns in most of his movies, but wants 100% confiscation and the abolishment of the 2nd - he's on the record saying so. A total left wing a-hole.

Welcome to Texas. You can get a carry permit right away (unlike California). I go up to the DFW metro area all the time, as my daughter lives in Plano. Arlington is smack in between Dallas & Ft. Worth. Check out the Ft. Worth Stockyards sometime.

I would have given Mr. Crouch a raise, a bonus, and named him employee of the year. Too bad somebody wasn't carrying nearby and just double-tapped the scumbag thief in the chest, before Mr. Crouch needed to intervene. Happy ending.
