      Lockdown C&R acquisitions

      During the lockdown I received my C&R license so I decided to spend my time constructively. I picked up these two nice examples: The first is a 1967 Ruger Bearcat and the second is a 1966 Colt National Match. All in all, I am pretty happy.

      Front ramp sight

      I am looking for a gently used front ramp sight for a bolt gun. A sight hood would be a plus but not necessary. If anyone has one laying around needing a forever home, I will take good care of it. I don't want to spend a fortune on it as it is going on a sporter milsurp. Thanks

      Winter project

      As some of you know, I have a thing for a .275 Rigby. Awhile back I bought a bubba'd Spanish Mauser. The stock was pretty crappy and it had the original barrel and sights. It was already chambered for 7mm Mauser so using it for the rifle I wanted seemed to work. I yanked off the stock and...

      This guy has been hanging around!

      I had a couple of pics of a large bird that was on my fence, in another thread. A few folks helped me decide that he is a Coopers Hawk. We he has been hanging around almost daily around my yard. Here are a few "full frontal" pics of the guy (or girl). This white pigeon has also been...

      Picked up a new rifle this evening

      Yep, I did it, I just couldn't help myself. Watching other Hooligans shoot their new Garands made me crazy so I went and got one for what I think, was a bargain. Now it is not a CMP rifle so it may need some TLC. I am just lucky enough to know two people who went to the CMP school recently...

      50-70 Govt

      Does anyone load 50-70 Govt. I have the chance to get my hands on an original 1871 Navy Springfield but since it isn't mine, I don't want to spend a small fortune on ammo. I ordered 20 cases from TOW and may have a line on some .515 lead boolits. If this all happens, it will be shot on the...

      Frankenhammer project

      Recently I bought a rifle for a ridiculously good price. It is a BRNO Mauser with a Kimber of Oregon 24" barrel. It just has a cheap plastic stock but it is a 7MM Rem Mag. When I got it, the barrel was "in the white". I had to try it out at a Hooligan shoot last Sunday and was stunned by...

      Kimber of Oregon rifle barrels

      Does anyone know anything about Kimber barrels? This is not on a Kimber rifle. I really can't find a lot of info on the interwebs. Are they any good or not?

      Flintlocks, who knew?

      I have been researching building a flintlock lately. There are kits out there that I had no idea even existed. Not your run of the mill Cabelas kit but, kits "in the white", builders kits, and others. Now the conundrum of figuring out which style I want. I didn't know there were so many...

      Deer antler powder measures

      I am looking for folks who may want to donate some deer antlers. My plan is make powder measures for black powder rifles. Of course all who donate will get a finished powder measure back in the grain size that they specify. I do not plan to sell them, but give them away. I am just starting to...

      Preferred 9mm brass?

      I went through all of my 9mm brass today, what an undertaking, and separated it all by head stamp. Most of my brass is range pick ups and I have a metric butt ton. What I am asking is, does anyone prefer one brand of brass for reloading over other brands? Why? My pick ups include...

      Mini-14 vs. AR-15

      I am sure that there are those among the members here, who have varying opinions on this subject. Why would a person want a Mini-14 over an AR?

      More .280 reloading questions

      I have been doing A LOT of research to get as much "helpful" information that I can use. I have found several reloading sites that say that I should use Magnum rifle primers when loading. I cannot find this on any of the "normal" suspects sites or any of my manuals. I know that this will...
