Re: Retirement grows closer

I started my working life as a cowboy for $150.00 a month. Still love that work but too old and banged up to enjoy it anymore. Switched to the oilfield in the 70's and never looked back. Since 1979 I have been the production superintendant for this company working my way up from the very bottom. I t...

Retirement grows closer

Turning 66 soon and starting to think about hanging it up. May do some consulting occasionally but will be selective. I have worked for this company for 42 years and gave a lot of free labor to them growing up. Recently bought a house as we live in a company furnished house and we are in the final s...

Re: .300 BLK pistol

I have a Radical Arms upper in 8.5" bbl and use it as a truck gun. S- brace, UTG 3-9X32 1" BugBuster Scope and 45 degree angle iron sights. Run 10 round mags in it and really like the little gun using 110 gr bullets. First mark under crosshair is dead on at 225 yards and holding level with...

Re: The Glock 43 update!

+2 for the G43 works very well at a fair price. https://hyvetechnologiesbuilder.com/ind ... roduct/37/

Re: Got a new rifle

Put the Minox on wife's new Ruger .204. Put SigSauer Whiskey5 3-x15x52 on the .338. Both of us are happy with the scopes and guns. Will need to fine tune each on paper but will hit clay pigeon at 200 yds with each as of now. Wife shot the .338 and said it was loud but recoil was no problem. I swear ...

Re: Got started in .300 Blackout...

You are going to like that little rifle very much Andy. I have a 16"AR rifle for wife and I,also a 8.5"AR pistol with scopes on both. The scope on the pistol is a cheap UTG 3-9X32 1" BugBuster Scope with QD mount. It is 2 " high at 100 yards and the first mark under the crosshair...

Re: Got a new rifle

Went to mount scope and rings were 30mm instead of 1", another week wait now. Do not know how to post pics but will see if I can find someone to do that once it is finished. Really want to shoot this gun. I use a service called Imgur - you can just about drag and drop, then get the img code fo...

Got a new rifle

Ruger American Magnum 24 inch bbl in .338 WinMag. Will mount a Minox ZA5 3-15x42 HD BDC 800 on it in an Aero-Precision Ultralight SPR mount. I am going to try Hornady 225 gr SST ammo out of it to start with. Scope, mount and muzzle brake should be here by Friday so I may get a chance to shoot it thi...

Re: Shotgun selection

My wife and I have Beretta, Browning, Franchi, CZ and Benelli O/U and semi shotguns. She mostly shoots a Beretta A-400 which is above your price range. However Beretta has a very good semi for around $800. Recoil is not bad and it is a good choice for sporting clays. I don't think you can go wrong w...
