    Gettin' a new toy

    I put my name on a new Ruger American Ranch in .223 / 5.56 NATO. If you haven't seen 'em, it's a compact version of the Ruger American and hosts a 16.12" heavy contour threaded barrel. I should get it after the first of the year (I hope). Plans for it are just shootin' and maybe elimate a few...

    Ruger's new .22

    All I can say is I'm an owner once they hit a store here. The American is now available in .22 and .22WMR. Adjustable modular stock, 18" or 22" barrel and best of all - uses the 10/22 mag and bolt action. FINALLY an affordable .22 bolt gun from Ruger.

    South Carolina pro-gun

    I guess I'm glad I live in South Carolina now; the Palmetto State is very much pro 2nd ammendment. I hate hearing all the news from NY, CT, CA, CO and the many other states squashing our rights; It appears we've got some law makers here that ARE fighting the good fight. The following bills are...

    Sig SP2022 - anyone got one?

    I bit on a 2022 9mm this weekend. I've been looking for a 9 for a while, just as a shooter and occasional carry (1911 is the everyday carry for me). I fondled alot of polymers - this one felt the best in my mitts. Read some good reviews, a few that knocked the trigger, but overall - I think...

    Gloucester in April

    Wifey, kids and I will be taking a trip to Gloucester over Spring Break - I hope to get a day on the water - can anyone chime in on what's bitin' then? What to see, where to eat, where to stay and all the other necessities are much appreciated too.

    The "one" pistol?

    Lobbing softballs for everyone out there - there's no sense in even putting a poll up because there's so many options: Here it goes: If you had a choice of one pistol, one caliber - what would it be? (carry, self defense, whatever - just one)

    stripper guide sizes

    Got back froma trip a few weeks back and refinishing some rods and adding a few more. refinishing: 670, GFR765ML, CJB65H and 665H adding a 700H and 775H. I've historically gone with size 20 to start (BHNLG, BNLG stock chrome ring guides). Would you go 25 as a strip guide?

    I'm tired of waiting and want to go NOW. Indy reports 10 BFT from 90 - 130#. Royal Star has picked up some kind of alien ET fish with long pectoral fins, not sure what they are, but they look kinda fat! Kind of funny this year, there's been more escolar and oil fish caught than...

    Hurricane Kristy

    It doesn't look like it will go directly over the fishing grounds, but it should make for some interesting seas over the next 10 days - 2 weeks. Hopefully it'll really turn 'em on. 6 days and counting....

    Fresh or Froze

    OK - no drama with this question, not even going to mention who I'm using in two weeks to process what I hope to catch: I fly back to South Carolina the Saturday the boat gets back. 1 - do I wait for the processor to cut, bag & chill the fish then have it checked as baggage or.......... 2 -...

    .22 Bolt Gun

    Looking at buying a .22 bolt action, just because. There's alot out there, primarily looking at Savage, Marlin or a CZ. I have a Ruger M77/22 but I want something that is more of a knock-around gun. What do you guys think?

    This has nothing to do with LR, but thought ya'll might get a kick out of seeing this. This ship is bad-as an the seas are BRUTAL. Note the size of the chopper compared to the ship. I'm not savvy enough to psot the video, here's...

    60 or 80

    OK - I posted a week ago whether I bring a 50 or not on a 7 day end of Sept. I put the 50 away and have the 30 ready. Now - it's loaded with 100# solid spectra and 60# mono. Should I leave the 60 on it or bump it to 80? Than you..

    50 or no 50 late September

    I've never been on a trip and left rods / reels at home - I've stuffed the Bazooka Pro and my reel bag to the max. This year I think I'm outta room and need to leave SOMETHING home, but coming from SC, I can only fit 42 lbs of crap in a 35 lb bag. On my past 6-7 day trips, I've brought the 50...

    Jig painting

    I've got several Salas, Tady and other jigs that I'd like to repaint and rehook . I've never painted, but can't imagine its too hard. I assume an air brush and some paint is all a guy needs, but I'd like to ask the experts. Air Brush? Paint (where to get and what kind) anything else needed...

    Sabre Stroker

    I've got one of my dads old Sabre Stroker 5.5 Footers, assuming its probably a 655XH. I've re-wrapped it and want to put it back into service in September. I kinda want to keep it simple/ old school, possibly a dropper loop or yo-yo. What reel are you guys thinking?

    JX 6/3 Clicker Button

    Remington 597

    Even after the horror stories from Y & C, I couldn't pass up a deal on a 597. I've got a 10/22 I've had for 25 years and love it, but held the 597 and made the purchase. After $150 in gift cards, a few boxes of CCI MM's, left wally world spending 40 bucks and get a $25 rebate from Rem. I...

    .22 mag

    What's the word on late model 22 mag's here on the deck? It's not a real popular caliber here but growing up in AZ, it was a great small critter gittr. I've read alot about the Marlins being the sheet for OTB accuracy and reliability. What do you guys think?

    Customer Service

    There's been alot of posts about customer service, good and bad. We all have experienced both and alot of us live it daily as we're in the "customer service" business - In my 10 yrs of building rods as a hobby, I've had some good dealings and some shitty ones - particularly with a company who...

    I've got two old LX's - both are pre-clicker models, I've got an old JX and an old SX - all bought the first year AVET came out. Other than handles, are there any upgrades out there - or ideas / tricks to quiet them up - mainly the click while reeling?

    For you pros, do you use labels or hand-write the model, name and other stuff? I've been using Avery clear labels, even some white and inking them black with white lettering - I know there's some custom label makers but I don't sell enough to get off my wallet and buy them. Any ideas? Thanks
