    Practice Rifle choice during the Ammo Shortage?

    During normal times this really wouldn't be a question, I'd go pick up a matching rifle/scope in .223 to my hunting rifle (plan was a tikka,) and proceed to spend lots of time at the range between now and this fall improving my skills. But...it's not really "normal times." Given the current...

    Free Beer in Idaho Falls, ID

    My relocation for a new job in Idaho Falls finally got approved so we've leaving the greater Denver area and heading west - current ETA is mid March. I'd love to buy some folks in Idaho a beer to get the lay of the land in that region, when I started here in Colorado I went out with some locals...

    WTS Hornady precision hunter 30.06

    I've got four boxes of Hornady precision hunter in 30.06. They won't stabilize in my ancient rifle and I figured with the ammo shortage and rifle season kicking off someone could use them. $100 takes the lot, local only in the Denver area.

The author is a bit of a jerk but some of the insights were pretty good and borne...

    Stupid idea?

    I've been going back and forth on which spotting scope to pick up - should I spend a bunch of money and get a nice one, should I go cheap because I don't have one and I don't know if I'll like it. A common comment is that I should make sure and pick up a binocular adapter for my tripod - and...

    Yet Another "which 50-65mm scope" Thread

    The long quarantine has been making me research things ad-naseum and one of the items on my list to purchase this year is a spotting scope. Unfortunately, as you folks know there are enough options to make you cross-eyed, so I'd like any insight you folks can provide. Here's the use case: I...

    Uses for Lighter Weight Material

    Stuck in quarantine I was just reading some materials science new recently about "super magnesium" which is a new magnesium alloy that's a little stronger than high grade aluminum but ~30% lighter and damps vibration much better. It got me thinking what could you make out of it for hunting...
