Stolen drive shaft

Last week at about midnight while watching tv, having a cold beer I heard some noise outside and a truck drive off. Normally I'm johnny on the spot, off on my property, armed. I have been working long hours six days a week. As a contractor I cannot turn down these jobs. It's been slow for some time....

Re: Securing a rifle for home defense

I have a 4 year old who KNOWS not to ever touch a firearm and to tell me or mom if she sees one. She has never had the opportunity to discover one. A very quick spot is above the inside of a closet door. I put two rubber coated bike hooks into the cripple studs and it's hung up high and dry. You wou...

Well, my good friend has 100 or so acres close by and we decided to build a blind for a couple reasons. 1. The property is loaded with deer, turkey, and lots of big wild hogs. 2. We're both builders him having a framing business and myself a general contractor. We have all the tools and lots of free...

Re: Vehicle/Firearm Laws

In Florida firearms may be transported in a vehicle without the need of any permit. A permit is required for carrying concealed on your person. Firearms being transported in vehicles can be loaded but out of your immediate reach. Handguns must be secured in a holster or case.

Only made for a couple of years, date stamp puts this guy at 1981 and judging by the condition of the finish I'd say it's been a safe queen most of its life. I intend to shoot and enjoy it. ...

Re: what type of shotgun shells do you prefer?

I voted buckshot, because I view it as the staple round of a fighting shotgun. I would love to have some "bird bomb" (now a restricted device, and possibly unavailable) and the "dragon's breath" both for very special occasions. I like to carry about 2:1 buck to slugs ratio, in general not including...

Re: what type of shotgun shells do you prefer?

Got a great deal on some cases of Rio buck. 00 or #4 buck for $125/case of 250. I chose the #4 buck as I prefer 21 slightly smaller pellets over 9 larger ones.
I do also have lots of Remington Express 00buck and Winchester 00buck and slugs. Couldn't begin to even count birdshot/target loads.
