  2. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    Guys I am going squirrel hunting this weekend with a buddy. This will be my first hunting experience as I have only shot at paper up until now. Since I am a newbie I have a few questions and would appreciate any advice from you guys with experience. 1) I have an old Winchester model Sixty Two...

    For years I have used a pair of Timberland leather oxford gloves as my daily wear gloves for the winter season. They are still in good shape. They are not optimal however for extreme cold, or for extended sessions outside. For that purpose I have sought out rugged mittens. I ended up purchasing...

    So last night when I got home from work I decided to take the snowshoes out of storage and use them today. Ever since I got them a couple years ago I have not really had a chance to use them where I live. We would get snow I would wait a few days then it would be melting. So I decided I would...

    Nice club to shoot at. They have some openings on teams, or you can bring your own group in. Ten man teams. Check them out on Wed, Sat or Sun.
  7. Carry/Conceal
    Greetings all. Does anyone have any carry tips for the colder weather when we are bundled up in more clothing. Should I reposition my holster? Should I wear a holster at all? In a large winter jacket, is the pocket the best solution? All advice and answers are appreciated. Thanks.
  8. The AR-15
    Back in November I built a pretty expensive Seekins Lilja 223 so this time around I was looking for something less expensive and a tad lighter to bang around during Coyote season, I also decided to build a different caliber so I chose a 6.8. I already have 2-.223s. It started off with a cheap...

    Now I have to take my car to the shop tomorrow and hopefully get it figured out and fixed tomorrow before work sunday. I was driving down the express way today and all of a sudden my car started to thumb and vibrate. Immediately I thought I must have a flat tire. So I kept driving to find a...

  11. Shooting Ranges
    Just to get things started correctly, I will absolutely take up to and including 50% of the stupidity blame on this one, but not a single % more. Having said that, here is my story: Saturday, January 14, 2012. I packed a pistol bag and wandered over to GCL to do a little shooting. I arrived...

    Is anyone missing the snow? I know I am! I'm an outdoors person as most of us are and I love the winter. I'm a snowboarder and this lack of cold weather is killing me! (i'm ok if it doesn't snow as long as snow can be made on the slopes!)

    So I have managed to convince a couple people from work to go camping in February up in the Adirondacks to go snowshoeing. We will be camping at the camp sites at the Loj by lake placid and snowshoeing to Avalanche lake (I have never snowshoed before) which will be about 8 miles round trip. I...
