  1. I bought a used Kimber .22 Hunter off a man who said it would misfire a lot. He used to empty it and close the bolt but never released the trigger. Kimber fixed it and said the spring was weak.
  2. I have a Savage 212 in 12 gauge and it is very accurate and dependable. I've taken many deer and a bear with it, all one shot kills. I've been thinking of getting a 220 for deer though. It would be lighter and produce less recoil.
  3. How does forcing a vaccine on all of the citizens accomplish that? I'm thinking there is a more sinister motivation involved. The Constitution was written to prevent the govt from doing something like this. I know Dems ignore the Constitution whenever it prevents them from achieving their goals, but this is blatant violation of individual rights and they defend doing it. What are they gaining here?
  4. I don't like being called an idiot for asking questions as to the government's motives. I know it's about control, but control of what and to what end? Perhaps it's punishment of Trump supporters, most of which reject the vax. Perhaps it's something else. That's what I want to know.
  5. Just one of thousands of businesses who found NY to be hostile to their struggle to be profitable. It costs a lot of money for a company to pick up stakes and move to another state. NY is making it so costly to stay in NY, these companies willingly pay the cost to move, in order to profit from it in the long run.
  6. Why don't the articles about the unvaxed causing mutations mention anything about the folks who have had the virus and have natural immunity? It implies they need to be vaxed also. When I read those links, none of them are definitive about their case. A lot of could, maybe and probably terms being used to impart an opinion, not proof, of the theory. And the links from CNN and The Guardian have to be discounted because they are known to be biased on the issue for over a year now.
  7. Can someone please provide a benign justification for why the FDA wants to hide & keep secret the vaccine data for 55 years? It is stupid things like this that really give conspiracy theorists a lot of play. Why is the Biden administration doing this?
  8. The deadliest Cartridge Known To Man
  9. He did say improper storage can have different effects on the Indian Buck Lure, anything from a really strong smell to none at all. The basic message is, if it's not fresh, it probably won't have the same effect on bucks. I just want to use something that works for me like it always has. I appreciate what the company is doing for me and respect any company that still practices good customer service.
  10. We're still talking about it because the govt is still trying to force it on people with threats. People are losing their jobs now. It's tyranny and insane. Everything you said is true, so why are the unvaxed being attacked by the govt? Why is the govt trying to force people who've had COVID to get the vax? I suspect it is NOT about anyone's health.
  11. Just to give everyone an idea how things are being handled now. "As chair of the South African Medical Association and a GP of 33 years' standing, I have seen a lot over my medical career. But nothing has prepared me for the extraordinary global reaction that met my announcement this week that I had seen a young man in my surgery who had a case of Covid that turned out to be the Omicron variant. ... Quite simply, I have been stunned at the response — and especially from Britain. And let me be clear: nothing I have seen about this new variant warrants the extreme action the UK government has taken in response to it." —Dr. Angelique Coetzee
  12. The person who brought it to the US was also fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people are just as capable of transmitting the virus as the unvaxed. So why are the unvaxed being attacked as the problem here? The amount of coercion and force being used to get them to take the jab is on par with CCP and Soviet style control efforts. And the people in the US who support it are getting really hostile about it too. Power and control. God Help America!
  13. Pretty soon the govt will demand all of the unvaccinated folks wear something on the front and back of their clothes to identify them as unvaxed. Maybe a five point star, since a six point star was already used.
  14. A massive amount of projection in that post lefty. You really need therapy for that loser attitude. You're right. You should post a lot less in this sub. We'd all appreciate it.
  15. Again someone resorts to ad hominem attacks when they know they have lost the debate. It's as predicable as meat rotting in the sun. Try posting a response people might be interested in reading.
  16. Yet you ignore the absolutes pushed by the government and the haters of the unvaxed. You don't think those things are overreach? Mandatory boosters, Forced vaccines for kids, stop unvaxed travel, fire unvaxed people from their jobs, Kill the economy, inflate prices of everything, Rapid Response teams? (SWAT squad?), global oppression of the unvaxed, steps to prepare for all scenarios? (More govt overreach and control over everything?) Do people on the left ever ask for details regarding these talking points to find out what extent they will go? All for a virus that may seriously affect less then 0.05% of all humans on the planet? You must really believe the government is your friend.
  17. Just got a call from David at Rickard's. He is sending me two bottles directly from the factory. I bought mine online from an archery outlet called Bowhunting Outlet.com. David assured me the formula has not been changed and suspects the product was not properly stored in a refrigerated environment at the sellers location. We also discussed how Indian Buck Lure has no actual deer product in it and cannot transmit CWD or EHD, but the lawmakers, in their infinite cluelessness, decided anything that isn't completely synthetic is no longer legal to sell in NY stores. Rickard's is in PA and the law doesn't prevent them from shipping it directly to me in NY though. How stupid is that? This has the potential to put this small company out of business, as this is their most popular, best selling product and the sales are way down this year. The government could put a lot of folks out of work and destroy some of these deer lure businesses without cause. Rickard's doesn't have the cash to fight this law in court or lobby dumb lawmakers into correcting the law. All they can do is hope no more states decide their product is a problem without giving them due respect and allow them to make their case beforehand. In the meantime, if you want to try a deer lure that I believe, after decades of use, actually works, you can order it direct from Rickard's. https://www.peterickard.com/
  18. I would like to keep politics out of hunting as well, but as we can see, politicians refuse to keep their noses out of hunting.
  19. Well, nothing in science is absolute and certain things are considered valid by the majority, until proven otherwise. The point is, our government is over reacting to Omnicron and acting in a way that isn't good for the economy, businesses or the healthcare industry. Once again, what ever the govt gets involved in, it ruins.
  20. “The general rule in virology is that better transmission is associated with milder illness,” says Ian Jones, a professor of virology at the University of Reading. “So even if transmission is higher the virus may be less dangerous.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/could-sars-cov-2-evolving-become-transmissible-less-lethal/
  21. If you don't get the vaccine, go on social media and spread bullshit about the vaccine and covid, then get it and die, your family doesn't get to go on twitter and say, "let's not make this political" and then announce the gofundme page for funeral expenses. Is that a law or something you just wish to make a law? Where is that a fact? If you read your own reply, and take note it doesn't mention the speed with which a virus can spread, only that they can mutate and be more deadly, you may begin to understand the point being made is about how fast a virus spreads determines how lethal it will be. That IS a scientific fact, that your reply failed to mention even once, except when it does say this : “Becoming more transmissible and less lethal are absolutely what’s best for the pathogen,”
