    Was out yesterday and we got our limit in 4 hours. That was with 3 kids from 4 to 11yo. Still a little small because it is early but good numbers. I am in Steinhatchee and we seem to get a good harvest every year. By early August they are really big. Our season closes on Labor-day and just...

    I am a fishing guide on the West Coast of Florida. Specialize in inshore fishing for Redfish and Speckled Trout but this time of year there is only one thing on our minds. Bay Scallops. Most delicious little bundles of seafood ever created. Only way to spend a hot summer day in Florida.

    Red Dot Only for Buffalo

    I used to do a lot of run and gun carbine shooting and used an Eotech red dot. All the red dots give you a new world of fast target acquisition and shooting. Used them out to 100 yards. You will not regret it. I am purchasing my DG gun later this year and will probably put the Holosun on it...

    Savage Dangerous Game gun

    Probably referring to a Ruger Safari Magnum that they used to make it the more traditional calibers such as the 416 Rigby and 375 H & H. The new "African" Model is only the Ruger calibers.

    What's up with todays' gun shops?

    So true, apparently the gun companies don't know much about now either as so few of them make them that way.

    What's up with todays' gun shops?

    Hey Doug, never have had a problem with DBM and have them on all my guns except my new 300 win mag for the plains game which will be converted soon. Fast to reload, release the box and you only have one round left and not dropping rounds all over the place and not cycling them through the...

    What's up with todays' gun shops?

    To those points I will concede as long as someone is teaching them this way.

    What's up with todays' gun shops?

    Not sure I agree with this. I was a range safety officer for a few years and what I experienced was Black guns taught people to shoot fast not accurately. Especially the younger people. Trying them to slow down and concentrate on hitting the same hole was impossible. Instead, they wanted to see...

    What's up with todays' gun shops?

    Been following this thread and have to give my input which is going to be counter to many of the "classic" gun lovers out there. Like many of you I too do not like the AR guns. Own a couple of them and they are fun range guns but that is about it for their usefulness. I much prefer an accurate...

    New here from Louisiana

    Welcome, joined a few months ago in preparation for two trips starting next year. Ask questions, everyone on here are more than willing to help with their experiences and view points. Most all come from a "been there done that" point of view. Invaluable, helped me out a lot.

    Wanted 375 Ruger Or Similar

    I know FATBACK and Lessard71 both had CZ550 in 375 H&H for sale not too long ago. Not sure if they sold yet. I am in the same boat, holding out for a LH Ruger 375R. Hard to come by especially used.

    Good African Safari Shirt?

    The 511 brand also has some great cotton tactical pants that are super comfortable and have all the pockets to keep a gear junkie like me happy.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    Just did a search for Emirates business class for May 6th of next year and it is a total round trip flight for two at $5728.10. That is much less expensive than Delta. Just more time getting each way. That includes access to the lounge in Dubai. I am blown away at the seats and amenities...

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    Thanks, I did not consider the night in Joberg yet. With getting through SAP we probably would not get out of the airport till around midnight. I am looking at the travel time of each to see which would be the best fit for us.

    Might just have to go with a Ruger Model 1. I hate to go with a single shot but economically it might make the best sense.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    I have been looking at that, their flights do look far more comfortable with better amenities. Just don't like the opportunity to have baggage lost and the extra day of travel on each side.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    I will be booking for early June next year and this is good to hear, everything I am seeing is $3600 and above. I have heard June is a less expensive month to go over there for airline tickets.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    What about Row 37, is there a bulkhead there. I am only concerned with legroom. If there is additional legroom in that row I will save the money. Also, I have been looking for the last week at about to depart flights and there are a lot of empty seats in the rear of the plane. I did a flight to...

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    I have been looking and the seat mapping does not show these seats you describe. This is on the direct flight on the airbus. I will keep checking because this seems to be the best option for the cost.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    It looks like a very traveler friendly airline with great amenities but it also adds a day to our travel on each side and costs more.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    The flights from Miami to Dubai don't list a premium economy but the business class is amazing and cheaper than Delta. Just have a 5 hour layover in Dubai. How much of a hassle is it to have your firearms with you in your layover in Dubai?

    Already spoke with her, just waiting for the time when we can get tickets. We leave early June next year so hopefully we will be able to book in the next month or so. I like to do my research

    I am looking at the seat map and it doesn't show it as an exit row. Is this some super-secret squirle stuff that they don't let people know about.

    Just checked Google flights and the prices are significantly higher than going to Delta directly. $3679 compared to Google at $4251. Is that normally the case?

    Well come on ahead, bring beer, I work for that! Lol, just give me a date in advance so it doesn't conflict with a charter. I even have a cabin for you guys to stay in while you are here.

    Delta from Atlanta to Joberg

    As the days roll by I am getting pretty close to when I need to purchase my airline tickets for next year. We are flying direct to Joberg from Atlanta. Question is what class ticket do I need to get to be comfortable. I am 6'6" tall and for 16 hours need some leg room. Anyone have any first hand...

    375 Ruger conversion to 416 Ruger

    I dont hunt here. There are a lot of small deer, turkeys, and hogs but not my thing here. I like to head North to Ohio and looking at a lease out in Texas. I don't care much for trophy hunting for deer, like the does for the meat. Best thing about this place is the scalloping, free food in the...

    375 Ruger conversion to 416 Ruger

    That is what I thought too, until I noticed the grip didn't feel right. It did affect accuracy but I am replacing it as soon as I can. It will be my back up rifle for next years Africa trip. That brings up my next point, I love the feel and pointability of the scout, a 416 with a 20' barrel...

    375 Ruger conversion to 416 Ruger

    I lived up in the Pacnorwest for 20 years and the laminate stock in not suited to extreme weather. It swells and delaminates when rained on like we had up there. I will admit we were elk hunting and getting rained on for 3-4 days solid. That being said, it is still a god awful ugly stock. Lol.

    Thanks for the input guys, I agree, putting a new barrel on is the way to go. Not concerned with the timeline as my trip with this gun isn't till 2026. As for the stock I am replacing the wood with an H&S precision. I spoke with them Monday and they will have their new left handed stocks for the...

    Hey all, looking for some gunsmithing knowledge and advice. I am a lefty so getting rifles is somewhat of a challenge. I love my Ruger M77s and would like one in a 416 Ruger, which of course, they do not make. I am looking for info on what it would take to convert a 375 to a 416. From what I...
