  1. No, that's a different shop. I've never dealt with them, do they process deer? I think the drive-in is still there. At least I hope so. ? Edit: I meant to add, Rich's shop was/is off Maple Road, up near 403. Technically probably in Westerlo.
  2. Thanks, that's good to know. A bit of a drive for me (I'm toward the NW corner of Greene), but if Rich has closed it may be the best option.
  3. Hi Folks, Been a while, forgive me, life has been challenging this last two years. Anyway, wondering if anyone knows what's going on with Rich's in Greenville? I can't get anyone on the phone, many attempts. Did he shut down? Anyone know a processor in that area? Thanks, jmark
  4. I thought there was no "season" on coyotes? I thought you could shoot them 365/24/7 with anything. ? Did I just imagine that all this time? OK, sorry, I see now - I guess I was thinking of Oct-March as being the whole year. Or something... https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/28945.html
  5. I love shotguns. Of the 40 or so long guns I have, about a dozen are shotguns. Some doubles, some break singles, several pumps. I do not care for semi-autos. The only semi-auto long guns I own are Ruger 10/22s (I have six of them), none are even remotely stock, I find them fun to tinker with. But I wouldn't rely on one for much other than shooting squirrels. I've had too many guns jam on me, I don't care to risk it. My all-time favorite shotgun is this Win 12. Gorgeous aftermarket stock and of course the gun has never once FTF. Other than my Citori, it's my go-to for trap. It's just an awesome piece of kit. I have zero desire to own a semi-auto shotgun.
  6. Bingo!! You guys are great, thank you. (Seems obvious now, I kinda knew it would.) Thank you!! jm
  7. Hi Folks, Been a while since I've been here, I hope everyone is doing well. I have a question. I've been getting out some rifles getting ready for deer season. I pulled my Remington 03-A3 (it's a sporterized gun) out of the sock just now, and this thing fell out. Uh... What the heck is it? I mean, it looks kinda familiar, but I can't for the life of me figure out why. I'm sure it's obvious and simple to the folks here, who are much more knowledgeable than me. Would appreciate any help. Reluctant to fire the gun without knowing why this would fall out of the sock (it's otherwise a gorgeous example and a sweet shooter). TIA, jm
  8. In Greene? I have land in Greene, PM me if you like. One problem you may have is that often when land is gifted to a town etc. the grantor puts restrictions on the deed (like, can never be sold, etc.). If the owner never responded to you, they may have been opposed to your stated goals etc. Interesting situation.
  9. Is this still available? If you can ship to Westchester for delivery by Friday I'll take it.
  10. I bought some. Never used them. I seem to recall they were kind of noisy. Didn't like 'em.
  11. Interesting. That must have been part of the acquisition - otherwise very bad PR.
  12. I'm thinking "slip of the tongue" is not PC either - discriminates against those who speak only with ASL.
  13. Was it a new adapter, or one of the original ones (like from Sears)?
  14. Thanks for the replies. I had a feeling there might be some opinions here. I grew up in a racing family (Funny Cars). We had a pretty big garage at our shop, and a 2-car garage at home, and there were always cars being worked on. My dad had Craftsman tools almost exclusively. Some Mac, no Snap-On that I recall, too expensive (although friends who were full time mechanics all seemed to at least have a Snap-On box). I don't think I ever had a Craftsman tool fail. I have HF ratchets that are absolute garbage. Loose, slip if pushed hard, just junk. The wrenches seem ok, although I have some that have developed a little rust over the years. All my boxes are Craftsman, some over 20 years old (one over 50), the others between 5-10 years old. They made several different levels of boxes, some with roller bearings, some not, etc. I have some of each (I have at least 6 boxes, some hold gun stuff). I don't think I'll ever need to buy another box. But I'm missing a few wrench sizes and some sockets, and it's disappointing that I now can't get replacements of equal quality. I suspect the used market will skyrocket now.
