    Shooting Range Near a Well

    I don't know who Denning Well Service is. The Frandsens (and relatives of the Frandsens) do most of the well work around here, I think. :)

    How do you carry a sidearm while hunting?

    Ha! That would be just great! One "non suppressed" round from a deer hunter's trusty 308 Winchester on the other side of the next ridge sending "all coyotes" running towards me! 😁 That would be alright if I was hunting coyotes, I guess. I'm usually hunting deer during deer season though - not...

    Why Do You Carry A Gun?

    You probably wouldn't want an M-1 tank "on your belt" anyway. o_O ;)

    Do I really NEED one?

    You're an amateur! I've been able to dream up or imagine a "need" for any gun (or cartridge) I want since before anyone ever heard of the internet. :neener: Seriously, I love the 44 Special. I've read many gun writers describe the 44 Special as being the perfect "balance" between power and...

    44mag or 10mm for Wilderness Defense?

    "44mag or 10mm for Wilderness Defense?" It seems to me that almost every time "wilderness defense" is mentioned, the thread turns into another "What Gun for Bears?" discussion. ;) Exactly. And as I've mentioned several times on THR, before my wife and I grew so old and infirmed, we were avid...

    How do you carry a sidearm while hunting?

    You didn't say what kind of hunting, but either of the two rigs in the pictures below should work for carrying a handgun while hunting (any kind of hunting) with a rifle, or maybe even while hunting with a shotgun. That's my Glock 44 (same size as my EDC - my Glock 19) and while I don't carry a...

    Revolver Resurgence-?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Ha!Ha!Ha!Ha! I was just about to respond to reddog81 and ask if it had really been that long (2017) since Colt reintroduced the Cobra. You see I'm 76, and I was thinking it was just a year or two ago that Colt reintroduced the Cobra. 😆 I guess time really does "fly" when you...

    Benefit of Safety Training

    :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: Yep. It was a long time ago now, but I (or sometimes my wife if I had to work) attended every Idaho Hunter Safety Education class with each of our 2 daughters as they went through them. We enjoyed the classes, right along with our daughters. Funny - it's so...

    Largest caliber you own?

    I've said essentially the same thing about comparing the recoil of my old .338 Win Mag (a pre-64, 70) to the recoil of the .300 Win Mag (a post-94, 70) I used to have. That is, on paper the .338 Win Mag probably kicked harder than the .300 Win Mag, but the .300 Win Mag I used to have hurt more...

    What is the most recent knife you bought?

    As I've posted before on THR, these knives were also known as Camillus "Aircrewman's" knives. You're right though - my Pilot carried one just like it. So did my Copilot and 2nd Crewman. ;)

    Ground hogs had a rough week

    I'm not sure if you'd call it an "ethical issue," but this time of year my wife and I usually spend a couple of days a week over on our friend's ranch shooting ground squirrels - babies and all. And after killing about a hundred of them apiece in 2-3 hours, we both get to feeling kind of...

    Mare's leg type guns- why?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: There's probably a lot of truth to that. I for one, got most of my "postgraduate" firearms instruction on internet message forums though. 😁

    Could a coyote, or even someone's roving dog have carried it off?

    Swiss Army...tool

    Hopefully! To me, a file in a SAK would be a heck of a lot more useful than a corkscrew. I mean really - does anyone ever use the corkscrew in their SAK? I pull the cork from a bottle of wine occationally, but I've never once pulled a cork when I was somewhere where the only corkscrew...

    Do you guys mount your own scopes?

    I hunt in Idaho, and I occationally do take shots "from one mountain to another." Of course, there's a lot of mountains in Idaho, so "from one mountain to another" here might not be as far as it sounds. ;) Nevertheless, I usually mount my own scopes as well (and my wife's too). I've been...
