"I have some big guns but not ginormous ones. 7mm mag, 45-70....they hurt enough.
The older I get the more I favor smaller guns.
My dad was fond of hunting little Alabama white tails with a 300 mag. I never understood that but he seemed to like it.…"
"I shoot .45-70 in a couple of Browning highwalls. I say this because, like your gun, they have essentially a fixed bolt when firing which means you are taking all the hit, unlike a semi auto that has an action that moves to take away some of the…"
"Some shirts do better in, some out. As mentioned elsewhere, if the bottom is flat cut…out, if it is longer in the front and back, tucked in.
Wear shirts of quality and structure. Too many large man shirts (like from a Walmart) are made…"
"One of the best books for advice in the work world that translates to life is "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie. It is a great book that has advice that covers a multitude of things.
"I guess some of it depends. My pastors church as a kid did not allow roller skating, playing cards, the church I am at now had a school and did not allow dancing up until a few years back. They also had a thing that the teaches had to sign to not…"
"no, it is solid barrels. It is an old Steven's 311. Not a classic by any means but it has brought down a good number of quail, doves, pheasants and steel targets.
BP clean-up is actually very fast...and your gun will be much cleaner in…"
"yes on black powder. I used to shoot in the black powder category in Cowboy Action shooting matches. I load shotgun, .45LC and .45-70 in BP. None of that new fangled Clean shot or other BP substitutes. I like the real Goex stuff.
I went on a…"
"I learned leather work back in the 90's when I was doing Cowboy Action shooting competitions. I needed holders and such so I learned to make them.
I've been a woodworker and am trying to make a pipe at this time.
"I like New International Version or Todays New International Version Study Bibles myself. New King James, King James, New Revised Standard, are all good. I am not a fan of the New Living but not for theological issues, I'm just not a fan of the…"
"I know some adults who were troubled children but who are now excellent people. Some will mirror the bad that they see, others will be turned off by it. One friend had both parents who were alcoholics, he has turned out to be someone who is against…"
"get a couple of corncobs. Missouri meerschaum is very good. Cobs don't require a break in period. They are cheap so if you drop one it won't matter much. You can have a number of them each one for different tobaccos so that you don't…"
"to try to revive and old thread....I have a 19' 1990 Bluewater Executive Overnighter that I love dearly. I am currently doing a lot of restoration work to it.
I also have a 21' pontoon boat. It is a Tracker. We replaced the old 2…"
"I have always heard that it is better to create a draw or slice by changing your line up and the swing path....that being said, I do it the wrong way, by changing the position of my right hand (stronger or weaker) and it forces me to open or close…"

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.

"I would suggest you read some more contemporary "popular" history. MacCullough's works are eminently readable, as are Foote's. If you need to write eloquent history, you need to read eloquent history.
