    Don't get started on that trail.....for anyone NOT in ag (ranching or farming) it will burn a hole in your stomach.

    Elk processor near Colorado Springs Area >

    Another vote for Crippen's. Good work at a fair price. Also have used Baker. Work was good but I brought in a cow quartered and they charged me for skinning (I believe it was $50-now would be $75)......because I had about a 4"x4" patch of hide with proof of sex attached to one of the rears...

    New Big Game/Yote Scope?

    I have a Swarovski 3.5x18 with the ballisitic turret on my Seekins in 6.5 and I love the scope. Light and crystal clear. There are a few choices for reticle. I chose the 4W as it is simple but has 2 moa windage hash/hold marks.

    Seriously.......best present EVER.....

    My first duty weapon was a P226 as well, always have had a soft spot since then.

    Seriously.......best present EVER.....

    Out of nowhere the wife and offspring unload this on me. They have heard (seen at the store attached to my range in the case of my son) me lusting after this pistol for about 6 months. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. To say I was shocked is the understatement of the century. I'm a...

    I may be getting old...

    Up or not, you were right that it was absolutely unacceptable. EVERYONE has some job to do, but doing any type of "noisy job" before a reasonable hour ( I would say 8 but I'd even give some grace to 7) is BS. Folks living near a job site of any type deserve peace and quiet until regular work...

    Whatever happened to ACTUALLY the meaning of this title???

    I have found TOTALLY the opposite. Met several people in person, made some great friends, hunted with a few and traded/bought/sold goods successfully. TONS of good folks here. If you find this place uninviting while others find the opposite....maybe think about that.....or in the alternative...

    Ready to rumble.....

    Some of you may remember that I took a BB with a crossbow during IN archery season last year, my first non-firearms animal. I used Casey's cb and found it to be a good, intuitive set up for me. Prior to going I tried a few bows at our shop but found that while I had no problem pulling, due...

    Because Dad did!

    I waited a few days to post because I had to let this ruminate a bit.....I had a complicated and very unfulfilling relationship with my dad. A good, hardworking, industrious man who was deeply flawed and NOT a good father in almost any respect. I did learn (just from watching, never actually...

    DNA kits?

    Like some others have said my DNA and fingerprints have LONG since been public domain between the military and local and federal LEO positions. Further, some of the assignments I have had and things I have been exposed to have given me a pragmatic/fatalist view. If the government WANTS to know...

    My name is Larry and I MAY have a problem.......

    It is 1-10. I happen to have a couple of boxes of 110s (long story) that I will be trying to begin with and see what she likes.

    My name is Larry and I MAY have a problem.......

    This one will start out with deer and we'll see from there. With the speed of the cartridge it carries a LOT of energy. I got a great deal on my choice of these Live Wild editions and figure a Mark V deserved a classic Weatherby round.

    How to Red Rocks Concert

    My wife went to one of the hillbilly concerts and ended up with a totaled BMW due to a hail event. Thankfully the damage doesn't bother her so she took the $$$$$$ and kept driving. She has been a few times and enjoyed it, nothing has tempted me yet.

    Rimfire Rifle Recommendations

    You mentioned the top three I would have suggested. If you want something classy a 457 Luxe is my pick. If I have grandkids that is what they will get. The open sights with the ramp are very good. I don't think you can wrong with any of the 3. Pick your set up and enjoy.
