    Odd or frustrating gun shop policies?

    CMM, we’ll just have to agree that we disagree here. However, I was not “walking through their store with a gun in their (my) hand.” Nor did I have “complete lack of regard for all other safety protocol.” And last, but not least, the underwear thing was 100% real-he actually said that...

    Odd or frustrating gun shop policies?

    And with all due respect ColoradoMinuteMan, your previous experience with the FPD notwithstanding, your stating that I was “...walking into a public place, gun-in-hand...” is a mischaracterization of what took place. I could have walked in, literally gun-in-hand, WITH my finger...

    Odd or frustrating gun shop policies?

    Mark, if you’d actually read my post, nowhere in there does it state that I was trying “to walk around in a retail store with a uncased gun in hand”. I had taken no more than 2 steps in, which is in a direct line to the counter the guy was hollering from, carrying the pistol in a way that...

    More Illegal Hunters Caught ... Baited Pond for Waterfowl

    My family & I stopped at the National Bighorn Sheep Interpretive Center in Dubois Wyoming several years ago. They had a magnificent ram on display, just as you come in that had been poached, and the placard stated the details of the ‘hunters’ who taken the ram illegally... I spoke with the...

    Screwed up a collectible rifle...

    Trey, if we’d all known what would & would not become collectible, less of us would be spending time on the forum; we’d all be jetting off to some exotic locale, looking for the next collectible. Sam

    Mountain lion/woods gun

    This was my thought too, to a certain extent. I believe it is well-documented in India that when a “person”-eating-tiger is known to be in the area, many people walk around with a mask of a face, on the back of their heads...the theory being that a tiger will not attack its prey, ‘head-on’. Sam

    I have done it wrong all of these years.

    I think, that with a “, so called, “ hunter, one who quite possibly has only fired a very few rounds through his/her rifle, using anything that helps them put the game down as quickly & humanely as possible, may actually be the epitome of respect for the animal. I do agree wholeheartedly that...
