Jackalope Glen replied to Ben's discussion Favorite Handgun in the group Riflemen
"Yes, I have considered this route as I do reload but I have not 'pulled the trigger' so to say. I remember that Buffalo Arms has the hollow base bullets but they charge $33 for 50…….yep, just for the lead. Of course I could…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Ben's discussion Favorite Handgun in the group Riflemen
"I have a Smith & Wesson hand ejector wheel gun in .455 Webley…..wish I could find ammo for it now that Fiocchi and Hornady is no longer making it. It was a lot of fun to shoot."

Jackalope Glen replied to Ben's discussion Favorite Handgun in the group Riflemen
"My first pistol was the Glock 19. I hated the thing (not that it is a bad gun at all, they make fine guns for sure) but it just did not sit right in my hand when shooting it. I traded it for a single action large frame Ruger Vaquero in .45LC and…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Andrew Green's discussion How do you stay motivated to exercise?
"I am 52. At age 28 I was racing mountain bikes. When racing I was 6'3" and 217 at my lowest. I allowed life to take over and busyness to occupy my time. I did some skateboarding at age 35-40 but was up to 275 by then. Then I had some heart…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Christian Richie's discussion Manly Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"U2 and Switchfoot but they might be more pop. POD was good and much heavier. I liked the OC Supertones but they are gone now, 5 iron frenzy, skillet, Relliant K. "

Jackalope Glen replied to Ben B.'s discussion M1 Garand, solid investment? in the group Riflemen
"I do not own one but have shot many over the year. Jet Propulsion Lab has a shooting club that loans them out for matches and it is a kick to shoot their matches. My buddy bought 4 from CMP, pulled them apart and then matched the parts up and built…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Gnostic Bishop's discussion The Bible. Myth or Reality? in the group Christian Men
"To start with, Paul and John wrote about the gnostics in fairly harsh ways. To think that approach is correct, requires one to throw out a lot of the new testament that says otherwise. Also remember that 'gaining knowledge' was the boobie…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Brad Williams's discussion Shooting clays - worth it for $2,000? in the group Riflemen
"It is all going to depend on the individual. I love sporting clays myself. I am not really a skeet and trap fan. I could see myself getting bored really fast if those were the only two options. Same goes for me with pistol or rifle shooting though.…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Karl Helweg's discussion Ginormous Guns? in the group Riflemen
"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.…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Anthony V. Ard's discussion Recoil management? in the group Riflemen
"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…"

Jackalope Glen replied to David Lyle Bauchmann's discussion Dressing a Man of Weight
"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…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Todd Serveto's discussion When Did Sin Stop Being "Exceedingly Sinful" In The Churches? in the group Christian Men
"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…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Jakob P. G.'s discussion What do you like to do? in the group Edwardian Sportsmens' Club
"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…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Jakob P. G.'s discussion What do you like to do? in the group Edwardian Sportsmens' Club
"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…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Jakob P. G.'s discussion What do you like to do? in the group Edwardian Sportsmens' Club
"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."

Jackalope Glen replied to Liam's discussion Advice on which translation of The Bible to read in the group Christian Men
"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…"

"Naturally I read this as "Velociraptors designed for certain heart conditions."  And they surely are effective at causing them. I'd hate to be one of the leftovers from that trial."

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
