I have a 300 WBY for sale that would be perfect!  LOL! Congrats. Grandpa!

Hey Uncle Grouchy, that would make little Hunter a Great first birthday present.

Congrats Oscar, nothing finer than Grandkids. :)

I discussed the reticles with a Nikon rep a few years ago.  I mentioned I wasn't a fan of the circles.  His reply was that Nikon was convinced that the eye was drawn to the circles so if I wanted a Nikon scope I had better get used to them.  To this day I don't own a Nikon scope.

My daughter liked the circles, when we went to pick up her Vanguard GH2 .243 she had worked all night an couldn't see the lines in a Vortex but could see fine with a Nikon so that's what see went with. Even put a Nikon on her CZ 17 HMR :)

At The Villages in Florida last week, there was a bumper sticker on a parked car that read: 
"I Miss Chicago ."

Someone broke the window, stole the radio, shot out all four of the tires, and left a note that read:

"Hope this helps!

Where's Grouchy :o 8) ;D

I started with my Dad's Remington Scoremaster 22S,22L.22LR.
Went to a Ruger 10/22, an early one then a Stainless, Synthetic 10/22.
I now picked up a used Stevens 17HMR, it's more costly to shot but sure is fun..

I always coveted the old hired man's Gevarm semi automatic, always thought it was a cool rifle. :)

Picked up their catalog at the local farm show today.

If you are traveling with firearms they look pretty handy.

Get it too nice and it will really hurt when you put the next ding in it, use it the way it is and all the scars will just be good memories.

That will be one lucky boy and he will have a rifle to treasure and teach his own kids how to handle a rifle safely. :)

"Late again!" the third-grade teacher sternly said to little Robbie.
"It ain't my fault this time, Miss Russell. You can blame this 'un on my Daddy.The reason I'm three hours late is my Daddy sleeps naked!"
Miss Russell had taught grammar school for 30-some-odd years. Despite her mounting fears, she asked little Robbie what he meant by that.
Full of grins and mischief, and in the flower of his youth, little Robbie and trouble were old friends but he always told the truth.
"You see, Miss Russell, out at the farm we got this here low down fox. The last few nights, he done ate six hens. Last night, when Daddy heard a noise out in the chicken pen, he grabbed his double barreled shot gun and said to my Ma, "That fox is back again... I'm a gonna git him!''
"Stay back," Daddy whispered to all us kids!
"My Daddy was naked as a jaybird -- no boots, no pants, no shirt! To the hen house he crawled, just like an Injun on the snoop. Then, he stuck that double-barrelled 12-gauge shotgun through the window of the coop. As he stared into the darkness, with a fox on his mind, our old hound dog, Rip, had done gone and woke up and comes sneaking up behind Daddy. Then, as we all looked on, plumb helpless, old Rip done went and stuck his cold nose in my Daddy's crack!"
"Miss Russell, we all been pluckin' chickens since three o'clock this mornin!"

I just read where they were going to destroy all the firearms they had in stock when they decided not to sell them anymore.
 Their current money problems is not from not selling guns it's from not selling enough Under Armour clothing. ::)

"They all figure he must be crooked cause they are"

Do you remember this post?

"Have you ever noticed that Democrats are usually doing what they are accusing Republicans of"?


BB I'm not American but I do live 2 miles from the border, am married to one and run a business that is very dependant on a robust US economy.
 I whole heartily agree with you, They all figure he must be crooked cause they are.

 They need to get on board or get out of the way if they can't help/
