    Question about who buys guns

    Hi Mark, I have 3 over 100 years, couple that are 50-100. And all are operable. I see many antiques at any gun show I attend. Had a teacher/Scout Master in jr high that collected muzzle loaders - had some real collectable originals. They were all over 100 back in 1965. He had at least 30...

    Pedestal Mounts

    I put the Kudu pedestal mount up on a shelf to get it off the floor. Takes up no floor space this way. I have the shelf mountEd to three studs with shelf brackets. The middle bracket is on the top behind the Kudu.

    Biden Presidential address to congress

    Yup! The plan is to federalize all the police forces. That‘s the purpose of the “defund the police” movement, and “demilitarize them”. That is the Plan, but to what end “?” Many local/county Sheriffs are strong 2nd Amendment supporters, And They will not enforce the gun confiscation laws headed...

    Covid vaccine

    I was glad to hear our CDC just named reporters to the essentials workers priority class. So reporters can now be first in line to get the a vaccine. I was worried about them. Maybe Prez Trump can order up a special version of his vaccine for them - hope so.

    How do you pick your mounts?

    Petey, I have 4 mounts, 4 euros and two rugs. The mounts are Kudu pedestal, Impala shoulder, Reedbuck and Springbok Wall Pedestals. I wish I had a couple of the Euros done as shoulder mounts. (Note, the the mounts are in the living room and the euros are in the den - my wife likes the mounts...

    Condition of trophies

    Dennis, Poor horn condition has come up several times on AH. So to be perfectly clear, it is the boiling process to remove the flesh that dries and cracks the horns which is required of the dip/pack process, CORRECT? Therefore, there is no way around that the degradation of horn appearance...

    Condition of trophies

    Buck, Do you think the taxidermist/ preparer understand the damage their process is doing? Just having the dip&pack process done and then shipped here for finishing the taxidermy will not solve the problem. Thanks

    Condition of trophies

    Geez ...... I think the cracking and drying happens during boiling the flesh off the skulls. I have 6 out of 7 horn/mounts that look cracked and dried out. The one set that isn’t, is a Blesbok euro mount and the horns are loose mounted. Two trips, two different taxidermists. Very...

    .425WR - Thoughts

    You Can not legally reload in RSA — really? I believe I heard detailed discussions/conversations while there about reloading. (No names )

    Could a .22LR possibly kill a leopard?

    A 22lr will consistently shoot through a 2”x4” at 100 yards. Cheap bulk ammo, Both Solids and hollow points. 18” barrel. 2x4 set on edge, unsupported. I was surprised at this penetration so I have done it several times to verify. So a 22lr will likely penetrate some pretty thick skulls at close...

    Skulls, it’s not that hard!

    I think “dip & pack” includes removing all the flesh which is when the boiling occurs. If so, then having skulls just “ dip and pack” is not going to prevent the horn damage from boiling issues. I have 4 shoulder mounts and 4 euro mounts. Two trips and two different RSA taxidermists. Seven out...

    Convert a pedestal mount to a wall mount

    So, we moved into a bigger house. Thought we had a plan for the taxidermy mounts. Three small antelope wall mounts and one pedestal mount. But the floor plan is not working out so good for the Kudu pedestal. The house has high ceilings, so I am thinking about going up with the Kudu. Any have...

    Discretion is good - maybe. Do any of us think by being discrete about our hunting successes will change any of the antis beliefs or behavior”?”.

    10mm auto new pistol which one?

    ABob, I will definitely send the message to Ruger with my suggestion today. I have done that before on other suggestions. Better to let them know my thoughts. Thanks

    10mm auto new pistol which one?

    It would be great if Ruger would come out with a hunting version of the SR 1911. Keep the target sights Mill or tap the slide for Optics Mill a rail on the frame. And heck, why not thread the barrel. Maybe make a 6” long slide - not sure about that option....

    Quick question on rings and bases

    I like my Warne quick detachable steel rings on top of a Warne steel rail (picatinny). And I use the same scope for my AR and 30-06, Trijicon 4-16x50mm AccuPower. Had to add a rail riser on the AR for the objective lens to clear. Warne insists no lapping required on his steel rings. I called him.

    Traveling With Ammo: South African Air's New Rules Lead to Confiscation

    Last time, 2015, I had my ammo in a plastic ammo box with my padlock on it, inside my checked baggage. TSA opened, I know this because they put a courtesy inspection note inside the ammo box and relocked it. It was a descent padlock, not a little cheap TSA luggage lock. TSA must have some master...
