  1. Loss of an icon. They are one of my favorite rock/blues groups.
  2. Federal Shotshell program for youth shooting sports sold out in less than 6 hours yesterday, I didn’t even have time to collect orders from my clubs. $7 a box for target 12’s. The demand is high with so many new school based trap clubs starting up. Next time I just need to order as soon as I see the form I guess.
  3. I’ve always been told that dog training classes are for the humans and not the dogs. If you are re-enforcing what you’re taught in class and it’s not working, I’d try a different class.
  4. I saw something similar to this when my wife and I visited Manhattan a few years ago. Probably 2 dozen quads and dirt bikes screaming down Avenue of the Americas. It was really nuts to see.
  5. That's a cool looking "rack". It looks like at least one side is pretty palmated.
  6. I never event thought about the frostbite angle, that's a definite possibility.
  7. I hadn't heard anything about it, but that's a shame. Everyone is taking things to the extreme these days, and there are little to no repercussions. It's really a sad state. Regardless, I'm glad you got her out okay, and I hope things calm down.
  8. If anyone knows a youth, 12 or older in Saratoga County, who is interested in Shooting Sports, we are planning our Fall 4-H Shooting Sports course, starting September 25th. It will run every Saturday evening through October 23rd at the 4-H Training Center in Ballston Spa. We cover: Home Firearm Safety, Shotgun, Muzzleloader, Rifle, Archery and Air Pistol. We are also working on doing a hunting practicum with DEC on October 23rd, but I don't have enough confirmations to promise that yet. Cost is $30, plus $5 if they are not already in 4-H. We provide all shooting and safety equipment, as
  9. Thanks, and I appreciate the help from the forum in figuring out where I need to be.
  10. Yes, 760 with a 1950’s J Unertl 4x scope. I’m pretty pleased with it.
  11. Thanks. That’s at 50yds. We’re doing some work on our berm, so I couldn’t go further. I think this should suffice for my 150 yd hunting ranges though.
  12. Just a quick update on sighting this old rifle in. I got a chance to spend some time with it today, and after a little bit of adjustment, I’m feeling pretty good about it.
  13. I took all of my first small game with an old single shot 20ga break-over that my dad had. He sold or traded it many years ago, and I don't even remember what it was. I do remember when I first took it squirrel hunting, I would have trouble letting the hammer down, and it slipped a few times, scaring the living daylights out of me. However, it instilled in me to always keep it pointed in a safe direction. My first deer was a nice 9 pointer that I took with my Remington 1100 (smoothbore slug barrel). That gun was stolen several years ago. Honestly, it was straight black and ugly (in my op
  14. I think you are right on the bit about bullet weights and velocity, I especially noticed it in the .22, with the lead weight at 40 gr, and non-lead at 21gr. Even at that, they said that the .22 ammunition is not great, with issues from lethality to operation in semi-automatic guns. We are limited to 50yds with our range, so velocity with the 06 was not representative of what it would be at longer distances. However, if copper ammunition were available to me in addition to lead, I believe I would now consider using it for hunting purposes, even if it cost more. That excludes the .22lr, ju
