    What Is Your Dream Rifle?

    For those who are interested, I described a superb rifle that I used in Zimbabwe in my article: "Is this the ultimate .404 Jeffrey?" here on AH. Take a look.(y)

    IMO over the years (as a non citizen) I've watched Trump's performance as a statesman and have been aghast time and again by his naivete: to the point where he's been openly lampooned. That and his history of bankruptcy and scams (eg: Trump University), ongoing failures over his Healthcare Bill...

    Most beautiful antelope?

    Without a doubt kudu, with its smoky grey coat, chevroned snout, wide spread, ivory tipped corkscrewed horns reaching heavenwards - almost as if in supplication! - just does it for me!! :love:

    Nope. Wrong again! Use of the word "triggered" as used is what it means, nothing more. But I'm glad you FINALLY admit that you've been triggered. So the joke's on you, as you'll keep on being triggered by posters such as I. Those anti-Trump memes must piss you right off...

    I knew when I posted them, someone would say they're prejudicial. But ALL media is biased depending upon which side of the fence you sit. IMO impartial political reporting in this day and age just doesn't exist. This leaves the media wide open to vilification and accusations from either side...

    What Is Your Dream Rifle?

    Mine would be a double 470 nitro, sidelock with either a "doll's head" or Greener cross-bolt, from between the wars.

    Your replies to me just proves my earlier point that you've been triggered. Trying to justify your President when you've already stated my posts (as a non-citizen) are irrelevant, or inconsequential to you, just undermines your credibility. As far as having a thicker skin than me, that's...

    What to do with a giraffe

    That's what I've always done, and by using taxidermists in Africa, they have the most practice and resources in mounting African species. Another good reason to have your mounts done in Africa, is that you avoid a the headaches of tight quarantine laws when importing a "wet" trophy into your...

    1st Traditional Dangerous Game Rifle

    There's just so many which fit being a "classic" calibre for Africa, the first (in the modern, smokeless powder, sense) being the 450 Nitro Express that was marketed in 1898 - but this calibre is in the preserve of double express rifles. However you can pick up a nice Ruger No.1 in 450/400. Then...

    As you say the tensions of the 30's had much influence over US thinking and policy. Indeed there were US plans for exercises after WWI, but Plan Red was both formulated only AFTER the US failed to get it's way to limit Britains navy at the Geneva Naval Convention in 1926, and, specifically...

    I'm not getting into a pissing contest, but views about Lend Lease are clearly divided on which side of the pond you hail from. If you're an American, you believe you got screwed by the UK/Commonwealth. Whereas if you belong to UK or Commonwealth, your belief is that you got screwed by the...

    "Cogent" to representing to research, learn and form a balanced opinion on a subject or issue is not an oxymoron in that sense of the word: it's only an oxymoron if you simply leap from one to the other without understanding the fuller context of it's usage as I've just described: therefore, in...

    Well written viewpoint, but don't forget the US deliberately set out - through financial attrition of "Lend Lease" - to cripple Britain's 200yr supremacy and achieve their objective of attaining superpower status in 1945. Now that the US has occupied that role since 1945, other nations are now...
