    Question about Recertification

    About a week or so ago, after reading this thread, I figured I would recertify early just to get it out of the way, despite all the Hochul horseshit. My recert date is in this coming November, so I'd be a few months early. I visited the NYSP website, pulled up my info, and none of it reflected...

    The Remington Rolling Block, and related single shot musings.

    Yes, it was the real deal built in Ilion. One time I bought several rifles from a woman my wife knew. Her father was in a nursing home and she wanted to get rid of the rifles; the #5 rolling block was one of them. The breach and hammer were locked up and I had to run the cleaning rod down it...

    The Remington Rolling Block, and related single shot musings.

    I never fired it. If you read up on it, the 7mm Mauser was a pretty new cartridge at the time...hardly standardized. It's a handloading thing that can be done, but factory stuff is length, headspacing, iffy chambers. The action is considered to be robust though.

    The Remington Rolling Block, and related single shot musings.

    Once upon a time I had one in 7mm Mauser. I explored turning it into a 45-70...Numrich at one time sold barrels for this. But now it would be stupid money and I sold it. It can be done though if you want to hunt buffalo.

    Thoughts on Browning BAR MK3 DBM as an all-purpose long gun?

    I purchased a BAR MK3 a few years ago. Japanese made, Turkish walnut I believe, excellent bluing, very light, expensive mags that do not hold ten rounds. Super nice, and there are bits made of plastic or synthetic...whatever it is. Certainly not "tactical", but that's not my thing. Choices...

    The shooter was from Conklin, hardly a liberal bastion.
