As a native Houstonian this sort of theft has been going on for some time now and particularly at this time of year.
In fact almost weekly a story comes on the news where a homes video camera details the very theft.
I have everything sent to my job.
I know for some that's not possible though.
I learned years ago how important a back up rifle truly is.
My two examples.
My first deer rifle was bought for me by my late mother back in 1972.
It was a Mossberg 810 30-06.
I removed the bolt at camp to clean the rifle but was not able to put it back in.
A known problem with some of...
mb1856...It's doubtful too me that someone breaking into a third floor apartment would be carrying a prying device long enough to give them the kind of leverage needed to open that 3/16th door.
Breaking into a third floor apartment is high risk for a thief.
I personally think one of those...
It is not oil or dirty lenses guys.
And it is not my lack of adjusting correctly as I have stated before.
The scope,for what ever reason, just will not focus sharply....Period.
I recently bought a new VX-2 in 2x7 to replace the old VX-I.
I will send the old one back at the end of hunting...
I have had both and both are good shooters.
My biggest issue with the model 77 was once they got away from the tang safety the Mark II models did not have the same trigger adjustability.
The model 700's are easily adjustable.
As far as the bolt lock spoken of earlier there is a reason...
When I slow walk hunt I prefer lightweight thin polyproplene insulated underwear as a base layer and for a jacket I prefer either fleece or wool as both are reasonably warm and quiet.
I generally like my pants to be loose fitting with several pockets.
I basically use green cargo pants as they...
I have a .308 that shoots both of those to the same point of aim and impact.
The power shocks are my preference although my brother claims he has had two bullet failures with them in his .243 and 30-06.
He uses Winchester Power Points now.
I once had a CoreLokt in .270 fail.
These are all...
You know it's a sad thing that ammo availibility is so hard to come by.
I was online three weeks ago looking for .35 Remington for my brothers hunting partner and there was absolutely none to be had at most of the online sales places of which I checked at least seven.
Even GB had little and...
For a very long time I was using two of the large Eva-Dry 500's but tired of having to recharge them every two weeks.
So I finally ran some 14/3 romex through the safe and made a up a plug and wired the other into a junction box with receptacle and bought an 18 inch Dri-Rod.
Actually it should be both.
Again.both of my Monarchs bring the reticle and target crystal clear at 100 yards with the slightest adjustment of the eye piece.
And just Sunday I took my old Ithaca LSA-55 in .243 out to the range and it is topped with an older Bushnell legend 2x7x32 scope and...
