Did you hunt with a Marlin 1895?
As to age, computers, etc... I played around with Commodore 64 and Vic 20. Was amazed by a friend's Apple IIc, and another friend's Tandy 1000. I bought a PC clone of the 8088 processor variety as my first PC back in 1986/7 . Since then, have bought or built everything from 286, 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium IIs, and so forth. Still mess with them, have been playing with the Single Board Computers, Raspberry Pi's, Odroids, and I am amazed at their power. Never had an AOL account, though I did have Compuserve.
As to firearms -- It's quite the eclectic mix of milsurp, plastic fantastic, 1911s, and whatever strikes my fancy.
Then I realized it was like modding engines. There can be a lot more to it than a Chilton's manual.
I was looking for info on long range shooting and didn't like the way people respond to each other on other forums. So I joined here a measly 5 years ago. It's been a good five though.
Goodness gracious ! A violent corporal punishment for violating what is basically only a personal preference?
Goodness gracious ! You get 51% of the people to get together on that issue,, and by golly, you could pass a law about it.
Well, that's the way a pure democracy works, so have at it.
I'm not signing this one so nobody will know who posted it.
Wouldn't a run of THR etched blade Rat 3's be nice?
Of course not. Those were far in the future. I used the most modern of weapons in that time period, a spear, a very LONG spear.
You must have had to put a pretty good rate of spin on that "LONG" spear in order to stabilize it.
Just in case another mammoth shows up - or another lion escapes from the King Ranch.
I've sold all of my pilae, my iklwa isn't really meant for throwing and my fishing spears won't do enough damage to a major predator or game animal.
We've already had emus starting fights with the neighborhood dogs.
Now that's a term I haven't heard in a loooong time.
That made me wonder what coincided with my birth year. Apparently the Polish PM-63 RAK was officially adopted by Polish military and police in 1965.
You must be too young to have hunted dinosaurs.The spears had to big and heavy to deal with critters of that size so throwing one was out of the question. That's way I used a very LONG spear as I was attached to the dull end.
Lurked for a few years before signing up.
Same for me in a couple of months. And, as somebody else said, "I'm older than Sputnik".
Two guns older than I am. The 1943 Remington 03/A3 is close, though.
I remember the development of the wheel.
I couldn't wait for indoor plumbing.
Well that makes two of us lol
Currently I have one gun older than me.... I think.... Nope two I have a '70s model 700
Thats funny. I can picture it now
We all hope and like to think you've improved that since.
Most of us that were unhappy with the TFL change in management made the move when THR went live Christmas Eve. I was stationed in Korea at the time and remember waiting on the lights to turn on to register
