    I'm thinkin I need a 338

    I've got a wanting for a .338 of some type. I owned a Weatherby Vanguard SUB-MOA in .338 win mag and it was a great rifle. Killed some deer with it. Was very accurate. Got bored with it and sent it down the road. Fast forward to now, I have the itch for another .338 of some kind...

    7600?

    Have an opportunity to get a good deal on a gun that has always intrigued me. I have absolutely no experience with Remington 7600s and am considering picking one up. Its a synthetic stocked one chambered in .280rem. Dont have any experience with that chambering either. I figure I have a...

    New turkey shooter

    Over the winter I thinned the herd and got rid of a few guns I didnt use that much. One of them was a gun I had shot turkeys with so that gave me an excuse to get a new turkey gun. I found a killer deal on a Mossberg 500 with the 20" barrel and cool looking AR style stock. Had to have it! So...

    Federal Trophy Copper

    So I saw these on sale and figured I would see if they shot in my M70 Extreme Weather. Who can tell me exactly who makes the bullet? Seems like the interwebs have conflicting stories. Some say its a Barnes. Some say its a Nosler that looks like a Barnes. Either way I think they will kill a...

    New rimfire on the way

    Just won a rifle on that super popular gun auction site on the interweb. Its a Ruger 77/22 mag, stainless and synthetic. They discontinued those recently in favor of the American. I always kinda liked the 77/22. Anyway I got the rifle, unfired in box for $480. Was a good bit cheaper than...

    Sig 220 10mm

    Went to my gun safe and picked out a few guns that I hadn't shot in awhile and decided to thin the herd and get something new. Sold an AR15, a Glock 20 that I had tacticooled and a single shot 17 hmr. Took my proceeds up to the local gunshop and fondled all the toys. Came home with a new...

    I have a confession...

    Was bored so I walked up to the local brew pub for a plate of wings and an IPA while watching some LSU/Alabama. Struck up a conversation with a fellow patron who was also wearing a camo ball cap. Turns out he is a rifle nut like most of us on here... Anyway we started talking about all of...

    my swimming pool gun...

    I recently purchased a mountain bike. Figured it would be good exercise. Hadnt ridden a bike since I was 15 or so. Its true. Had no issues remembering how to stay upright. Tried a couple of different gun/holster combos, none were really bike friendly. Finally settled on my J-Frame in a...

    favorite turkey guns n loads

    Getting ready for turkey season here and was just wondering what everyones favorite set up was. I use my trusty Beretta 390. It started life out as a simple black synthetic gun. I sent the stocks in to Bell and Carlson and had them dipped in Mossy Oak Shadow Grass awhile back for duck...

    Grouse opener

    Took a couple days off to go up north and hunt with my dad for our grouse opener on the 15th. Temps were very warm, so we just hunted the mornings. Saw a few birds, got this one on the 16th. Lots of squirrels too. Was good to hunt with my dad and not be at work! Beretta 12 sxs 26"...

    Gaudy new gun

    About 10 years ago I was into skeet and sporting clays pretty heavy. Shooting 400-500 shells a month. For a few reasons I had gotten out of it, busy at work, other hobbies, etc. I sold my target guns to fund rifles and pistols. I still hit the skeet field occasionally with my other guns but...

    Got to shoot my new pistol today

    Finally got a day off without monsoon rains or 60mph wind. Decided it was a good time to see what my TC Encore in .243 would do. Don't have components or dies yet so am shooting some factory stuff I ordered online. The first load is Federal gray box 100gr soft point. The other load I got...

    new toy on the way

    I just received part of my new summer/fall project today. Always wanted an Encore pistol so I ordered a stainless/syn frame and a stainless fluted 15" barrel in .243 win. I will eventually have several barrels. The reason I went with a .243 is that I have never owned anything in that bore...

    Almost a kaboom

    Finally had a Saturday off that wasnt freezing cold or crazy windy. Decided to head to the range to shoot my BLR in 308 and also my Ruger SBH Hunter in 45lc. I had a box and a half of some Double Tap .45lc 300 grain @ 1300 I wanted to blast since I have found a more accurate hunting load. I...

    Got to shoot my new huntin pistol

    Finally had a day to hit the range and shoot my new huntin pistol. I had ordered some Doubletap .45 colt +P loads to play with. They are 300 gr bonded JSP at 1300 fps. I shot at 25 to confirm my scope was on, then moved to 50. This was off a rest at 50 yds. I should be able to kill a 120...

    New deer gun, picture added

    Several years ago I made a grave mistake that I still regret today- I sold my hunting revolver. It was a 8" Colt Anaconda in .44 mag. It wore a 2x Leupold. I killed several deer with it and like a lot of people on here, sold a gun I shouldnt have. Anyway through the years I have been...

    Finally shot my 7wsm

    Finally had a day off that wasnt windy, stormy, 100 degrees, or filled with demands from the better half. I had purchased a Win M70 Extreme Weather in 7wsm awile back and topped it with a Minox 3-15x42 XR-BDC. I also had negotiated a heck of a deal on some Federal Premium ammo in both the...
