    What's your preferred every day carry?

    Bad News for Deer Hunters: CWD in 2 Men

    I'm only talking about how lousy mule deer hunting in Idaho is. Idaho is pretty good for elk and pronghorns - if you can draw a tag in the right area. It's just been lousy for mule deer since the early '90s, I think. We had a couple of really bad winters back then, and that cost Idaho about...

    What's your preferred every day carry?

    "What's your preferred every day carry?" I'm long-time retired and live in the country, so I generally just carry a little .32H&R Taurus revolver tucked behind my right hip when I'm in the house or out back puttering around the place. It's stainless, lightweight, and doesn't get in my way while...

    Bad News for Deer Hunters: CWD in 2 Men

    Shoot, getting one deer every "two-three years" in Idaho (where we live) is doing pretty well. Annually in Idaho, only one in three deer hunters gets a deer (mule deer) during the season. It seems like there's plenty of deer killed on the highways though. :confused: But speaking of cougars...

    For those of us who live in an open carry state

    Yep, I hate to see that stuff too. However, a gun falling out of an inappropriate holster doesn't just happen with open carry. A few weeks ago, my wife and I were walking into Costco and a 1911 clattered to the concrete floor not 10 feet in front of us. It had obviously fallen out from under...

    Firing a DA revolver in SA mode

    Absolutely! I like SA revolvers as much as the next guy, and I own a few of them. But pushing those fired cases out of the cylinder one at a time is exceedingly boring to me - especially with rimfires. :thumbdown: OTOH, one of the things my wife (a real SA revolver fan) likes about her little...

    Well, that was a weird turn

    Yep, here too. Except housecats left outside here usually don't make it through the winter. Feral cats make it, although it's tough. And they sometimes become speed bumps on the road out in front of our place anyway. :oops:

    Mare's Leg: Worth it or a waste?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: I AM rich, and I didn't get that way by throwing money away! :neener: Just kidding - I'm not rich, but I'm smart enough to know that I probably never will be rich (or even "comfortable") if I throw money away on useless movie and TV props. To each his own though, doc hamer...

    feeling nostalgic

    Yep, I was only 8 or 9, but I remember Dad pulling a Carcano from a barrel full of them in an Army/Navy surplus store in Salt Lake City. I don't think he paid much over 5 bucks for it. He took it home, cleaned it up, "sporterized" it, (cut the front part of the stock off, sanded it down and...

    Well, that was a weird turn

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: LOL! An "effective weapon" against a small snake yes. However, when my wife ran over a small snake with our mower last year, it wasn't even an "effective" mower for her anymore. Because she turned loose of the mower, came in the house, and wouldn't go back outside. o_O I...

    Rifle optics: a blue collar spending perspective for cost / benefit

    :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: The $300 scope I put on my $3,000+ custom-built "retirement" rifle has served me just fine for 14 years and counting. ;) BTW, over the years, my "go to" scopes for big game hunting rifles have usually been variable power Leopolds. However, when I scoped my .308 Norma...

    feeling nostalgic

    They were special order, but my Mom and Dad sold guns through their country grocery store/gas station when I was growing up in the '60s. I bought my first handgun, a High Standard "Sentinel" .22 revolver through Mom's and Dad's store, and I think I paid about $30.00 for it - of course that was...

    For those of us who live in an open carry state

    I haven't dug through all 5 pages of this thread, but has anyone answered doc hamer's (the OP) question yet? It seems like all we're doing is, once again, debating open carry versus concealed carry, when the OP is actually asking if open carry and constitutional carry are "two different terms...

    Well, that was a weird turn

    Do cats kill snakes? I didn't know that, but it might explain why we see very few snakes around here. There's almost always a feral cat or two (my wife even feeds them sometimes) hanging out on our property, but we seldom see snakes. And in the 43 years we've lived here, we've never seen a...

    I have no idea where people even shoot anymore.

    Yep. A few days ago, my wife and I were out ground squirrel shooting on our friend's ranch near here. We do that several times every spring, and we always stop by our friend's house to ask them where their cattle are - because that country is just hilly enough that there could be a hundred...

    Do you decrease potential firearms purchases because of Form 4473 & FFL interaction?

    Sure, they're as good for as many things as the ones buried in your backyard. You know - the guns you claim were lost in that silly "boating accident" we all hear about so often. :confused:

    Do you decrease potential firearms purchases because of Form 4473 & FFL interaction?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Okay, and I even know how to keep this discussion sort of gun-related AND about the kinds of beer we prefer. I (and my born and raised in California wife) try to not buy anything that comes out of California because we don't like California leftist-liberal politics -...
