    Went looking for a S&W 686 Plus... end up with something els

    Picked up another wheel gun yesterday....S&W 686 Performance Center, 4 inch, 6 shot. I went looking for a 4 inch 686 plus, but nobody had any... was about to take a 6 inch until I noticed the barrel was slightly off (not clocked just right, wasn't off much but it was off). I handed it back and...

    Upped my fishing game today.... comfy boat

    Finally got the boat I ordered 5 months ago, Suntracker Bass Buggy 18 with a 75 hp Mercury 4 stroke. Still got some modifications to do to make it a proper catfishing machine....a remote controlled trolling motor, batteries, lights, etc. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk

    2018 RAM 1500 Big Horn

    Wasn't even looking for a new truck....but I fell victim to the year end sales. Noticed this truck sitting on the lot marked down $11,000.... pulled in for a closer look, and traded the Nissan Frontier Pro4X in on it. It's a 2018 (still new) and they're starting to get 2020's in so they wanted...

    The Henry 41 mag is going to the woods tomorrow

    My son wants to use the Henry tomorrow, its the juvenile hunt, we're hoping to get 2 does this weekend. We're going to take both rifles, the Henry and his 7mm-08...in case the deer show up out of reach of the 41 mag, he'll be able to get it done. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    A tale of 2 bullets...XTP and A-Frame in 41 magnum carbine

    These 2 bullets weigh the same... but the similarity ends there. The Swift bullet is .726" long, the XTP is .673"... the nose of the bullet is shorter on the Swift, so it seats way deeper into the case. The XTP seated to the front of the cannelure will have an overall length of around 1.585"...

    Finally pulled the trigger

    Ordered a Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine in 41 Mag last night. Been eyeing them for a while, thought it'd make a nice companion for the 41 Mag Blackhawk. Found a reasonable deal on Gunbroker... Free shipping, no sales tax.... so it'll come to $670 after my FFL's transfer fee. Can't wait to try...

    My boy got a pretty good blue cat last week

    31 pound blue cat... She was released alive and well after the picture. He doesn't look happy in the picture, but he is... He just wasn't real crazy about trying to hold that fish, it was trying to flop around a bit on him. Hard to hold a fish that size when it wants to wrestle, lol.

    Finally got my own steel target

    I've wanted one for a long time, just never pulled the trigger until now. I got a 12" round gong (3/8") and the hardware to make a stand from 2x4's from Shoot Steel. I'm gonna hang it from rubber instead of chains, I have some fairly heavy belting I'm going to cut the "rubber chains" from...

    Smith & Wesson customer service

    My wife has a 1976 model 10 she inherited from her Grandad, it is one of the less common 2.5" versions. He was a LEO and later a constable, he carried and used this pistol for many, many years. Its had a few rounds through it, still looks pretty good considering its age and life but is pretty...

    Dog gone, gone and done it... switched to carrying a wheel g

    Never really cared for wheelguns, not sure why (capacity envy maybe? )... But after getting the Blackhawk 41 mag I looked at them in a different light. Just had to have one... Got a Ruger Sp101 357 mag with the 3" barrel... Awesome little powerhouse, shoots to point of aim, very good trigger...

    41 Magnum followed me home today...

    Like new in box, 1998 production....Ruger New Model Blackhawk, 6.5 inch barrel. I went in there with every intention of ordering a Super Blackhawk 44 Bisley Hunter... But then I saw the 41 on consignment and made the mistake of asking to see it. Not too big and heavy, not too little (weak)...

    Haven't been on the gun forums much lately

    I've been fishing... I managed to get myself banned from one of the big catfishing forums, lol.... All I did was ask why they refused to allow the sale of bullets, primers, brass and such... I wasn't selling anything, just asking why it was against the rules.... And he booted me saying I was...

    200 grain Nosler at 1,300 fps

    I don't have much good to say about it... I'm a little irritated at the whole 10mm hunting bullet selection right now (all brands)... So I'll just post the pic and give the facts. 1,300 fps impact velocity Fragmented in the first jug, left most of the lead petals and all of the copper in the...

    Appendix carry...

    I didn't really like the idea of pointing a pistol in that direction, but I decided to experiment with it some anyway... Because anything I carry is far more concealed at 1 o'clock than it is at 4 o'clock. Now that I've been carrying appendix for a few weeks I have to say it ain't bad at all...

    A beautiful gem walked through my door...

    I do some minor gunsmithing on the side, just for friends and family kinda thing. My father in law came walking in with this and it was love at first sight for me. 1974 production Winchester 94 in 30-30 that has been taken pretty darn good care of. It has some use on it but it is plain to see...

    Concealed carry while fishing...

    What are your preferred holster types for this? Specifically for protection from 2 legged predators... I'm not too worried about grizzlies here in Tennessee so it'll just be for my Glock 32... If I ever make it to Alaska for salmon I have the G40 and the Diamond D chest holster, but I don't...

Over 30 years old and its only been in the water about 50 times, lol.... And then only...
