Lets see the people that can join the half moon club!

We all know this has happened to a lot of us in the past, who has a half moon cut on the forehead from a rifle scope, our very own famous @Royal27 has been willing to be the first guinea pig...here's his photo. Witnessed by @gizmo and @ActionBob .

Been there done that, but no pics. Once and only once have I done that, about 25 years ago with a 7mm Rem Mag.

I'm fortunately not in this club, but it was my CZ in 505 Gibbs that got Royal. After passing it around at Gizmo's place and several guys, inexperienced shooting big bores, took turns. Both Royal and I carefully explained how to hold and shoot a big bore, having them dry fire, etc.

Then Royal was gracious enough to show everyone how not to do it. :sneaky::rolleyes::confused:

I got hit with a Leupold scope on a 50 bmg bolt rifle one time (only one time). But it was before everyone has a camera phone in their pocket, so no pics thankfully. Man, did it bleeed! Everywhere!!

Isn't this the "Roy Weatherby Fan Club"?


Back in the late 1960's or early 70's, I heard a man at my local rifle range, refer to this type of injury as:

"Weatherby Eyebrow".

@ActionBob that rifle hit me a couple times but thankfully never hard enough to draw blood. ive never had a rifle draw blood on my head but ive had a double rifle cut me real good with the front trigger! worse part is it happened when I was showing some other people how to use a double rifle :oops:.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
