    Leaving tomorrow for Colorado Cowboy Shoot!

    Never been to anything like that. We don't have a lot of cowboys in Maine....but of course after a couple coffee brandies some of the young bucks THINK that they are. I bet that is a good time . I would assume they have spectators an all that stuff. Good luck and have fun.

    Guys I have a serious question for you. I have a friend who has Early Onset Altzimers. It's pretty grim but for now he can still work some but he has made some bad choices and I don't trust his judgement. Anyway he is talking about buying a rifle. He has had some firearms experience cause he...

    Rattlesnakes

    I’ve seen pictures of those of those big southern diamondbacks. Talk about a nightmare. Some of those snakes are big enough to make a sleeping bag out of.

    Rattlesnakes

    I think rattlesnakes are pretty cool but i’m glad we don’have them in Maine. I’d like to have a rifle sling made from one. Sometime when I go out west I’d like to go on a snake hunt with someone who knows where they are.No way am I going after them myself.
