    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.

    S&W 629 vs Colt Anaconda

    629 here. And a Ruger 77/44...and REALLY thinking about a lever to add to the mix. And REALLY REALLY thinking about a S&W 29.

    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...

    2022 Lead Bullet Ban

    Maybe NYC should treat it's water. The EPA has let the city skate on that forever. You would think that the watershed was its own private country.

    Remington Settles $73m with Sandy Hook families

    As I understand it, Remington is defunct. It was the insurers that settled. Bad decision. Had it gone to court, it is reasonable to expect that the plaintiffs would have lost.

    Thompson Center Benchmark 22 target rifle

    It's kind of a thing, I've always had something that I bough for one reason or another and just never used it. I've got a brand new BAR Mk3 on the wall that always wanted for deer hunting up north. My deer hunting days are pretty much over, the rifle has never been fired, or even outside of...

    Thompson Center Benchmark 22 target rifle

    Those rifles were spoken of as very accurate, but the mags were a bit sketchy...and hard to find. The way things are today, I can't imagine you would have any trouble selling it for a bit more than you paid.

    Elmers makes a wood filler that, in MHO, sands very well and takes stain good to boot. You could try the saw dust and epoxy, but the epoxy won't take color. Correction, "won't take stain" ....there are dyes/colorants that can be added to epoxy to color it. I put new handles on a chefs knife...

    who manufactures the BEST 22cal semi-auto rifle

    I'll stir the pot. Sold my 10/22 and purchased a Remington 597...years ago. It was finicky, magazine issues early on, although I never had a problem I have purchased the upgrade mags. But it is dialed in and will shoot 50yd cloverleafs all day. I've also got an old Mossy semi that I've...
