My every day carry pistol is a .9mm 13 shot SIG Sauer P365. If I leave my property, it's on me. I use a Nate Squared (N8 2) inside the waistband holster:

If I'm not driving or sitting down and on my own property, or family property, I may wear a pocket holster with small .380ACP pistol. I have been using the Taurus Spectrum:

Recently, however, I have switched pocket carry pistols to the Kahr CW380 due to it's diminutive size:

While it is totally frustrating not to get instant service you might want to cut them a little more slack. If for no other reason than the good service your products have given you and your family for all that time.

You are obviously aware of their move so you have to know that they are trying to get to each customer as soon as possible.

In the meantime I'll bet more of us, than just me, would like to hear about the other Weatherby's in the family and more about that great 83 year old  .378 shootin' man! Welcome to the Nation!

Congrats on the win; gorgeous rifle and blond stock!
I have an old Vixen Varmint, bought new a billion years ago, in .222. Still, to this day, shoots 'lights out'. Sure yours will too!


Poaching a sow bear and her cubs, given the manner in which its done, is about as shameful and horrific as a poaching offense gets.

+1. And I believe the 18 year old should have paid a stiffer penalty as well. What they both did was reprehensible.

Pork on the Pampas! Nice shooting Juan!

Thank you for the update and great photos!

We do the traditional dinner for Thanksgiving; turkey, dressing, the whole nine yards. For Christmas we went off the rails a little.

I did American Bison burgers and some 2 1/2" center-cut filets on the outdoor grille, over mesquite wood & smoke. Some skinless, boneless chicken breasts and assorted veggies, also grilled.

Sure hope this becomes oour new Christmas tradition! Yum!

Instead of filling the box with glitter, I'd prefer rattlesnakes! Ok, Ok, how about oil paint or indelible dye; pink!

For years, with competition Benchrest rifles, I have used a Dewey coated cleaning rod (with bore guide) and use bronze cleaning brushes. They do a thorough cleaning job with less passes than a nylon brush would, followed by ample cleaning patches.

They have never once detrimentally harmed any expensive match-grade barrel and always worked well with each of my hunting or target rifles. I've always favored Butch's Bore Shine.

Great question. I have to like the .270 Winchester, since it's so versatile and I already have it in the Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe.

But over the years that I lived and hunted in Texas Hill Country, I developed an affection for the .280 Remington (.7mm Express Remington) .25-06 and took more deer with a .264 Win Mag than any other. I also have to give a nod to the .7mm-08, which out of my Winchester Model 70 Featherweight is nearly as adaptable as the .270 Winchester cartridge.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone I hope everyone has a good day.  On a side note I'm happy to report that I didn't get murdered by my wife for getting a 30 pound turkey. 

Weatherby -SL that's a good looking Long Colt, what brand is it?
Thank you Chris. From Cimarron, it's a Pietta Frontier Model 1873. Fits in well my Colt SAA's.

Thanks Bad, and Happy Thanksgiving to all in the Nation!

That Rare Breed looks awfully inviting, betting price of admission is steep. But a little Wild Turkey goes a long way. Makes a good Whiskey Sauer:

After the turkey and dressing, a nice Jack Daniel's Red Dog ain't bad:

Tennessee won big yesterday. As a long-time red state, the Republicans won with Bill Lee to Governor, Marsha Blackburn to US Senate and 7 to 2 in US House. The State Senate and State House were ALL won by Republicans.

I loathe the fact that the Democrats won back the US House. I just hope they are smart enough to oust Pelosi as the Speaker and choose someone with more sense. Afraid the fox is IN the hen house!
