    What's a good free program to resize pics? I use ACDSee as my image viewer, but it apparently doesn't support resizing.

    Here is my small family. There have been a few changes since this was taken. The family has grown by a Kimber Ultra Carry and a Bushmaster AR-15.

    What's the stainless pistol at the very bottom? Looks very, very... flat. Perhaps it's a weird angle.

    Since I personally hate working with photos in Windows Paint, I'm going to help out a friend:

    http://www.irfanview.com/

    Great little program for very basic stuff like crop, resize, sharpen, etc...

    Someday I will drag them out and get individual shots....till then they said they want to stay in their box. Although, they said another box would be nice so they could have some arms room.

    I was funnin' really re the resolution - I just don't have real nice pics taken as family groups.

    I do tho have a sorta thumbnail montage - made many months ago - a sorta compilation of stuff - hard to see what is what and it is outa date a bit but - best I can do for now! Some here will of course have seen them - handguns, rifles, shotties and M/L. Quality sucks - they need re sampled really.

    Rovi - doesn't look like you drop in too often from the Emerald Isle!! :)

    Nice guns - that Sako Finnfire Varmint P94S - very very lovely looking rifle indeed - does it shoot as great as it looks? I rather imagine it will. I always appreciate good .22's, no matter what else I have or shoot. They have a place of their own.

    Hi P95Carry, I have a browser open with the High Road practically 24 hours a day, but compared to the depth of knowledge, experience, and availability of interesting ironmongery you guys have, I don't often have much to add to the discussion.

    It shoots waaaaaaaaaaay better than I do :)
    Using cheap subsonic solid target ammo (500 rounds to a can), it'll put everything through the one hole all day, provided I play my part.
    I don't. :D
    It'll be a very long time indeed (if ever!) before I can moan that the gun isn't good enough.
    I got it in mid February, and I figure I have over 4000 rounds through it by now.
    The fact that I can put a steel target at 100 yards from my bathroom window in front of a perfect backstop probably has something to do with the ammo consumption :D
    Its a beautiful thing to just look at and handle, never mind shoot.

    Haha - I thought so! Only begs one more question - which you don't have to answer! ;)

    How much was it? The whole deal there looks like a considerable (tho fine) investment. Any info on the importers etc?



    Here is another .22 you may find interesting. Mauser-Werke Oberndorf - made it seems around 1920. This one has some patches of degraded bluing here and there - but was at one time a very much used rabbit rifle (134 one summer season!). Apparently in good shape it is worth up to $1k ... but anyways - this is perhaps the rifle I have had longest and the one I'd be least keen to ever sell. It is perhaps nearly as accurate as that Finnfire if I do my bit and even tho scope is not the greatest - it is excellent.

    Interesting thing with this is its weight. Ready? - almost 10 lbs!!!! The chamber area is about 1" dia - you'd think to look (unless seeing small bolt and mag") - that is was at least a .243! Amazing old rifle.

    I bought it (slightly) second-hand from a local dealer for EUROS€650, and the scope was €200, plus another €80 for the mounts.
    According to xe.com, that total of €930 comes to around USD$1200.
    As you say, a considerable investment, but its the finest gun I've ever owned, or even used.
    Its only money after all, if I didn't buy a nice gun I'd only waste it on food or shoes for the children :D
    According to Sako's website (http://www.sako.fi/), the Ardee Sports Company (http://www.ardee-sports.ie/index.html) are the Irish importers.


    Woah!
    That's a gorgeous piece of history, isn't it?
    It'd be a shame to do a restoration job on that, it's just perfect the way it is.

    And, at 10lbs it's a half pound heavier that my Sako!!!.
    That's a real man's walking around gun :D

    :D :D But now - you can go shoot the ''raw material'' to use to make them their shoes??

    Indeed, a pricey number but not surprising. First one I recall seeing and I am most envious - nicely so! I hardly need say ''enjoy'' !

    Hey - if you lurk as much as you say - come join in a bit more when you can - I am sure you have much to contribute - even if simple opinion.

    Stay safe.
