RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
I can't even imagine how much .50 cal I burned through this past week. Even if I could legally own an M2 I wouldn't be able to afford to use it more than a couple minutes per year.

I prefer 101 and a .45 - Not at the same time obviously but there it is. Drinking Beverage

The year was 1973 I believe. I was only allowed to use those three guns. The .303 stopped it in its tracks. Smile

As a .303 would.

I prefer .308 for a rifle.

Never fired one. I also used a gun from the Boer war, but cannot remember what it was called. The guy I worked for had a large gun cabinet.

RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
About time someone started one of these. I'm originally from the south and although I don't like the majority of the things that come from there the love of guns rubbed off. Deep down I'm country as hell but just not a dumbed down idiot. Anyway, GUNS.

Thanks to the lovely state of maryland and their very strict laws(it's not bad if you become a collector like I have) it is kind of frowned upon to have a decent sized arsenal.

I currently have a remington 783 30-06, Ruger p22. 22. Those are what I have here while I'm working on getting my weapons from my parents house in mississippi.

Might have been a Lee-Enfield, a Martini-Henry, a Mauser, or a Krag.

We have started a couple of these. It never goes well. Dodgy

RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
I went to work for a custom rifle builder when I was 16. I actually started shooting when I was 5 so I've been at it for 63 years. My mother was a competitive handgun shooter and she got me started with handguns when I was 5. Ultimately, I developed a fondness for wildcatting rifle cartridges and I still do that a little bit today. I think I have about 70 rifles and probably ten or so are wildcats. I also have about 30 handguns and there was a period of a few years when most of my big game hunting was done with handguns. These days I still hunt, with rifles, but most of my shooting is done at paper targets out to 1,000 yards from a bench rest where I can sit down without working up a sweat.

My horse and I MAY hunt elk again this year. He loves to go hunting and there is a nice elk herd about a mile from my ranch in the national forest. However, even with my horse's help, moving an 800-900 pound elk [cut into quarters] off the mountain to my truck is exhausting work.
