How's your wrist after a box of shells? I just watched a vid on that gun-looks painful. Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age.


That's a two handed monster.
I know peeps who put it down after one, and others who won't touch it once they see the kaboom.

I can't do a box.

You guyz are makin' me feel nostalgic for things that go booom.

It's been over ten years since I was last at a range.

Tried out a Hawken black powder at a meet up in Dunvegan.

At least no scope-eye possible from that, thank God.

I wish I could get back into firearms. I just don’t care anymore, for some reason.

I found archery to be more fun, I guess.

Bump stocks do not appear very useful to me. Just the same. No reason to ban them. Let the market decide

I went up Postil Lake road to check out the snow pack yesterday. I wish people would pick up their empty shells instead of just leaving them on the ground. The place is riddled with spent shells. :-X
Some would view my above politically incorrect opinions as 'harsh' and may even be offended by them...That should just about cover why some nations are laughing at how soft and weak we have become.

I guess they weren't about to buy trigger locks for all 74 rifles. Nevermind gun lockers. :200:
So now they are facing multiple gun related charges.
Wonder if it was worth it?
I'm over 50, I'm full of rage lately, I have two axes and I have a huge tree stump that needs to come out. Any questions?

Finally... going to site the 700P and A-17 this weekend. made a collapsible shooting bench, son is in town. Time to make some holes in paper.
Bought my son a Boker 3000 knife for his B'day. freshened up the blade at Razor's Edge in Penticton. Can now shave with it. He's now got a bald spot on his arm.

^^^ son has an older Savage 99 in 308 ( detachable box mag.). He's bound and determined to go hunting this fall and tag a deer or something with bones sticking out of its head. That rifle has a real nice smooth action, amazing bit of fit and finish.
Going to get my tag(s) for the first time in 19 years and show him my old haunts...likely every body's now.

Not sure what the true value of such a stock is. I think they should not have them available for JQ public. Maybe if there is a sporting competition ok, but not sold a Walmat in USA.

If anyone has a older model 22 cal riffle or knows someone who does, PM me. Also there used to be several gun posting on a site, they stopped allowing them. Now people go to what site to buy and sell in Kelowna region?

Been looking for a old Cooey .22 single shot bolt myself. I had my gramps gun. but it was so used that once it was tilted above 45 degrees , just the gravity on the trigger would be enough for it to go off.
