Yeah, I was trying to look around the rifle box and see what he had on the shelf. I see a lot of Jefferson's, which is on point, and bottle of Weller's trying to hide down low. I keep all my top shelf stuff and stuff I really like down below so that any house guests don't try to do shots of something expensive.

I'll peel back the layers for you guys although it's only a small portion the rest of it is packed and I have a few bottles on my bar cart. I mostly have that there to screw with people at work when I have to turn on my webcam for work.

I can never find the drat Weller around here either because there's a group of guys around here who have a deal where they'll buy all bottles of any uncommon whiskey they see at the store when they see it and sell the excess at cost to each other. I have managed to beat them here and there, scored one of two bottles of Blanton's Single Barrel at the shopette.

I bought this BRNO 581 from J&G sales a little while back, hard to resist a good C&R 22lr. It's a fun little thing.
Now that I found ammo that it likes (Federal Automatch) I wish it had a higher capacity magazine. 8 rounds goes too fast







This is really neat. It's got that kind of old futuristic look a lot of older 22 autoloaders have, especially around the magazine.

Its got all the donor parts on and its clean now I really cant wait to take it monday. Scope base is way to high but its for a SCAR17S. Im going to swap out the stock next month which should fit this scope setup since it will be the exact setup.

Yeah its .17hmr but a .22lr is on the list for this summer. The bolt comes from Sterk and I bought doubles in anticipation of putting together a matching .22.

Cool, they make Ti thread protectors too. I figured it was a .17 based on the magazine profile, but hoped you had somehow found a more flush-fit .22 one.

17hmr is pretty drat awesome. A good choice.

If I hadn't bought that Anschutz 17hmr I'd probably be looking at these pretty hard.

So I actually shot a 22LR rifle Tuesday for the first time. Holy poo poo that thing makes me feel like an expert marksman with how little it recoils and how accurate I can shoot with it, compared to ARs and 9mm pistols. Now I really have to get some rimfire guns just for fun.

I started on 22 rifles when I was a kid. Last year, a 10/22 became my 2nd or 3rd gun, pretty much for this reason. They are just so fun and accurate.

Watch out, though. Twenty-two Long Rifle is the Lay's potato chip of guns: no one can have just one. I followed that 10/22 with a Wrangler, a Mark IV 22/45, and a S&W Model 63. On 22 day at the range, I go through hundreds of rounds.

The other advantage of 22lr is that it's like 1/4th the price of the next cheapest round.

You can get boxes of 50 for the same price as a single fancy 308 round.

Turnbull Ruger Question Time -

I'm waiting to take it to a range before I start loving with it. But that being said, a suppressor would be a long way off any way I slice it.

What would be the best place to find a cool break, comp, or whatever it's called? I have no real performance related goal. I just think it would look cool.

Any sight recommendations while we're at it? They look like I could swap them pretty easily. I have AmeriGlos on my Glocks, but I got them because they were about half price. For this gun, I'd want to go with something nice and bright.

Kinda surprised you want to play tacticool dress up with your new Turnbull.

Muzzle attachments can be found all over the place. Since you just want something that looks cool maybe check out eBay.

For sights, Iíd highly recommend sticking with target sights if you donít like whatís currently on it.


https://www.tandemkross.com/ would probably be a great start if you want to check out high quality upgrades and accessories.

Compensator for example.

If you havenít shot one before, I think you are going to melt the first time you shoot it with how simply wonderful it is. Add with how gorgeous that gun is, and you may find it hard to think about changing it further.

Grips and a can would be simply lovely though. But as has been said before, do what makes your heart happy! Iíd just find other guns to modify if I had such a pristine piece of work.

22 WMR cylinders finally back in stock for the Rough Rider Rancher

I did take it out last week and fired like 18 rounds. Seemed pretty accurate although I'm not the greatest shot in the world and I'm not accustomed to shooting a gun like that. I could hit a soda can at 50 yards or so, or petty close to it

So I got a Browning BL22. I want to get a Skinner rear peep sight for it and I'm wondering about the front sight. It seems I'll need to get a taller front sight to go with it, and i was wondering if I could use a globe front sight with the peep sight, or would a regular post or bead better suited to it?

My sole partiality is to that delectable spiced meat. Any additional confederation of vegetables shall not compromise the pie as I see it.

Got a call to go cull some feral domestic rabbits with the homestead crew today. I rocked my dad's Remington 512, which he gave me last month in the process of moving. It works:



(Best guess is I took 2/3 of that, including the squirrel)

I had never cooked or eaten rabbit before, but the group consensus was that it could be treated like chicken. So I cornbreaded it:



The rabbit meat eaters present returned positive reviews, though I did not care for the consistency of the meat. A bunch is on ice to be fried again tomorrow to see if that works, too.

It's good stewed also or braised. Low heat (250f) for like 3h with with some onions, garlic, salt, butter, herbs. Toss in some potato chunks in the last hour and coat in the fat etc and then crank up the heat to 400f for the last 30m and let the potatoes brown.

This.

Part of the issue with treating rabbit like chicken is that rabbit is significantly leaner than basically anything from a chicken other than a painstakingly trimmed, skinless breast cutlet. Between the lack of fat and the high surface area to mass for any given portion of a rabbit, it's generally worth assuming you'll overshoot the "no longer raw but not overcooked" window and should just aim for a longer, wet heat treatment, as far as I can tell.

There may be some sous vide options, but I've actually never seen or read about anyone cooking rabbit that way so far.
