  1. My favorite is my Remington 552 Speedmaster .22 semi-automatic. I was 17 when I bought it in 1961 by working in a grocery store on Fridays after school for $3 and 13 hrs on Saturdays for $7. The local hardware store let me buy it for $56 and pay $3/week on the bill until it was paid for with no interest. It would fire shorts, longs, or long rifle cartridges as fast as I could pull the trigger never jamming. I still have it. When I was working in FL, I bought a Sig Sauer AR15 from the Homestead, FL Walmart. I used a M14 and then a M16 in the Army and that M16 really impressed me. My Sig
  2. Last but not least, the one gun I have never owned but have always wanted to. The Colt Python. I had a nickel Trooper MK III but have never owned the Python. I still hope to one of these days. Even better would be the Anaconda in .44 Mag but they are no longer made and used ones are out of my range. The Python is being produced again though and I plan to have one at some point. I do have a Ruger Match Grade GP100 but it doesn't do it for me nearly as much as the Python.
  3. Rifle was fairly easy for me. Though there are a couple others that I really liked, the International stands out as may favorite. Handguns? That's a different story. I have different favorites for different uses. I guess that may all time favorite for plinking is the Ruger Single Six with the interchangeable .22/.22 mag cylinders. I had one years ago that met the same fate as my International. I finally replaced it a few years ago. My original was blued but the new one is stainless. I love it for plinking. Cheap, accurate and just a lot of fun.
  4. Marlin Model 336, 30-30. It's not like I just decided to get one and it was everything I wanted it to be. I literally grew into this rifle. It's the first large bore stick I ever shot. It's the first rifle I ever took a white tail with. It was my Grail from the beginning of my shooting life. I'd give it up in an instant to get the man back who bequeathed it to me.
  5. The one I have I'd like to sell is a S&W Stainless Steel Model 639 9mm. BUT, after looking into how to sell it, turns out in NC, I have to have a permit to sell a handgun or have a NC carry permit as well to be able to buy one. My carry permit is a FL permit that I got during my 3 yr 7 month job in Homestead FL. I plan to get a NC carry permit now. A permit is required in NC in order to give a handgun to a relative. Recently, my wife's son gave her two of his handguns but they both have NC carry permits so that was legal. All of my handguns I acquired when I was in FL and they are l
  6. Thanks @Flyinfool, I thought so... Here is my latest addition to the fold you bunch of lop eared varmints. This little shooter was just to precious to leave behind in the dark corner of another friends gun cabinet. It came with a bunch of spare parts he had gathered thru the years as well as a holster.. Its a surprisingly good shooter even though it only holds 6 rounds. Being a 22lr it is also affordable to play with.. Next item of discussion is this extremely quiet 22lr ammo, Colibri by Aquila.. Any of you varmints ever played with this stuff? Since getting my 22lr conversion kit for my
  7. Spin on adapter came in just a couple days and seems to be working perfectly with no leaks. To get the old bolt and cover off I bought an extractor set like @Midicat posted from Harbor freight https://www.harborfreight.com/38-in-drive-metric-bolt-extractor-socket-set-9-pc-67894.html the 12mm didn't grip but tapping the 11mm on it grabbed with the GI Joe Kung Fu Grip, used a 3/8 to 1/2 adapter and breaker bar and made short work of the whole process. I remember when I used one of those extractor sockets now, I know I used it on a lug nut on my Wrangler and I’d put money in I had rent
  8. Funny but he makes some fairly decent points. Real men don't wear fanny packs though.,
  9. Was just talking to a friend and showed her these pics. She just chuckled and said that reminded her of her days on her dads farm. Not the exact same as the pics but they used a very similar thing to lift and stack hay bails in their barn. They had a rail that circled the barn at the top rafters and with a pully arrangement that ran along the rail. That suspended this type of attachment and it hooked the bail wires and so they could lift and move it anywhere in the barn to stack them. Two girls on the lift rope and her dad on the guide rope. She also remembers taking flying lessons from th
  10. I have used a product called "plasti-mend" in the past and I can't say enough good things about it. When I bought the little cargo trailer I pull behind the bike the bottom of it was cracked on both sides by the wheel wells. I ordered this with limited hope and was more than pleased with the results. That was 6 years ago and it is holding up rock solid to this day. It did take about 48-72 hours to fully cure, but once cured it is as I said rock solid. The product was a bit more expensive than I expected, but given the results and durability it was worth every penny of it. Here's a link to the
  11. Ok, let me explain the careful thought process that I used when selecting that helmet. It was the only one the motorcycle dealer had in stock that I liked when I bought the bike. It had been over 10 years since I sold my previous bike so I did not have one and needed one immediately in order to ride the bike home. Fortunately, I like it.
