    Today was just for shootin, and ringing the gong.

    I just finished making up some paper targets to go out with me tomorrow....if the weather cooperates. I changed out the front sight on one of my TC's and need to resight it. My next club match is still about 10 days away, so hopefully this one will sight in and group good enough. Won't have to...

    What would you guys do .....

    Us old guys just need to decide what we want to do with what's left of our lives. I am still out hunting almost daily when I probably shouldn't be...but I don't want to spend the rest of my life sitting in my recliner. I wish you the best of luck and hope things improve for you.

    Today was just for shootin, and ringing the gong.

    I have always loved Montana country and thought hard about moving there when I retired, but after growing up in Nebraska I just couldn't face the snow like that anymore and opted for Texas instead. You are lucky to live in such an area with the guts to face the white stuff !

    Creedmore style sight question

    I put a Green Mountain barrel on a TC Hawken and added peep sights. I put a Lyman peep on the rear, and had to replace the front with one of the TC high sights to get the point of impact low enough. I still need to sight in the new front sight, but I have high hopes. It would barely hit poi at...

    Large amounts of fouling after each shot

    I never have fouling problems, but each of us seems to have their own way of doing things. I only use greasy type patch lubes when hunting, and this will only consist of one or two shots before coming home for cleaning. For all my other shooting, I use a small spray bottle to wet the patches...

    Screw Threads sizes

    Did the brush come out ? Not any response to the suggestions for getting it done...

    Screw Threads sizes

    The easiest way I have ever found to remove a brush from the barrel is just run another smaller brush to the bottom, and it will grip the larger one and bring it out with it. You could probably get by with a simple .30 ca rifle brush or similar.

    Seems to me the majority of news outfits are just trying to hide and evade anything negative about the dems. There is very little concern about our country anymore from either the dems or the news.....just a lot of lies!! It will get interesting now that Hunter Biden's son's late business...

    Assigned to California

    What a shame ! I remember Trinidad back in the 60's when I lived in Raton, and I thought it was a fun place to hangout and visit on my days off. The old buildings there almost talk to you about their history...

    some humans have no soul

    Are the Sioux still having problems around Whiteclay ? I would guess since they shutdown the alcohol sales there, that some other source would be found.

    Assigned to California

    I totally agree ! I moved to Ca. back when it was a beautiful and fun place to live. I stayed there for just over 30 years and spent my working years watching the state go straight to hell. When I retired, I moved to Texas....where real people live !

    What's Your Favorite Sidelock?

    I have numerous custom made sidelock firearms, but when it all comes down to it....I always seem to go back to the old TC Hawkens as favorites. I just put another one together from parts laying around here for a friend to use during deer season. I have nice rifles from .40 to .62 calibers...but...
