Re: Trs25 on Mossberg, rattle fix

Switched over to a rifle. Windage adjustment took a dump. Exchanged it. I like the sight. Just don't know what it is good for yet. I'll report back if it manages to get zeroed with full house turkey loads.

Re: New Hunter New Property

Ditch the tent and go find the birds. Be there before first light, listen, and move towards the gobbling. Then sit next to a tree and call a little. Good things may happen. I promise you that you will learn much more about turkey hunting if you get out of that blind. You will enjoy it more too. Wha...

Re: A controversial subject.

The crossbow is an ancient weapon, documented in China over 2,300 years ago. How do crossbows figure into this whole trad, compound discussion? I've always been under the impression that in ancient times the bow was the superior weapon if you learned to use it. Those old crossbows sure look like ju...

Re: Time for a new truck

Since this thread is about getting a new truck, my Tacoma has 222,000 miles on it. Year before last Toyota recalled it and replaced the frame some leaf springs brake line ect. Would it be profitable to hang on to it and replace motors and transmission when it finally dies? Or just bite the bullet a...

Re: A controversial subject.

Using a compound is like sniping a turkey at 70 yards with a ten gauge full of TSS. You'll never guess what kinda bow I shoot...

Really, though, shooting a compound got boring quickly. That's why I switched to trad.

Re: Time for a new truck

Also, I read Nissan is coming out with a new Frontier for 2020. Old style closeouts should be really cheap. I bought a brand new '14 F150 XLT loaded for $27K because everyone was buying the new redesigned '15 instead.

Re: Time for a new truck

One thing to consider is being able to get your truck plus trailer rig where you want to go. One of my favorite camping spots is limited on what you can get up there. And then is the small trailer something you'll actually want to stay in for extended periods? I was all about slide in campers until ...

Re: Time for a new truck

Tundras are too pricy. I thought about trading my 14 f150 in but I really don't like any of the new trucks well enough except the tundra and I can't see paying that much for a pickup truck.

Re: Hunter Numbers - random off season topic

Doesn't make sense to me either. Maybe the higher cost and lesser availability of hunting land? Guided trips have gone up and public land is better known sure to internet. More land is tied up in private tracts with few or no hunters or so some say.

Any published charts which also show the recoil in ft/lbs of energy as a component of shot charge weight, velocity, and shotgun weight?

Re: $20 red dot from Amazon

I have extremely bad eyesight including astigmatism. Aimpoint dots are pretty starred out at all levels to my eyes. Other dots don't if turned down low enough. That's how I get by with the Burris FF3. Red dots that have filtered dot shapes do not star out with me. Most such dots are the cheap ones. ...

Re: Time for a new truck

Ford or Toyota, that is it. There are fewer decent travel trailers than trucks. 1/2 ton you're looking at small light stuff like Casita.
