I agree that "A lot of rifles will not shoot the same zero when they are cleaned. "
But I store mine clean and then take a fouling shot when I take them out the next year to start confirming zero and practicing with them.
To me, that seems better than storing them fouled for a few months...
We surely don't need wolves here in Colorado but I don't think this vote will matter much, other than to speed things up.
There are already wolves in the states north of us, as everyone on here knows, so they'll make it down into Colorado anyway.
While stationed in Alaska with the Army we were permitted to wear a Danner warm weather boot, their Fort Lewis boot.
I have a very wide foot and they didn't really fit but it was cold and the boots were warm so I wore them.
After a while they stretched and adjusted to my foot and fit pretty well.
