coonhunters say "when the tailgate drops ( hounds get released) the $#@%^&* stops

havn't heard it in a while but used to hear "when I was a kid dad would give me 3 bullets. I had to bring home 3 rabbits. I can shoot rabbits on the run with 22 shorts" When I would get one of them to go hunting it was always "well I am out of practice and or my eyes are not so good anymore"

Growing up in CO 3-400 yard shots were pretty common. A favorite mule deer tactic is to get on top a ridge whose sides are covered in pinon and cedar. walk down the ridge, staying on top, tossing a big rock over the side every hundred yards or so. Bedded up deer will run down the hill and up the hill on the other side. They go about half or 3/4 ways up then stop and look back. I learned to shoot them by sitting down and bracing my elbows on my knees. Even from that position, 3-400 yard cross canyon shot you need to shoot careful. Takes practice. We never knew how lucky we were to have all those thousands of acres to hunt and shoot on.

Here in KS finding a place to shoot a thousand yards aint easy. I know from experience all kinds of stuff happens when you shoot that far. Starting with wind. It dont take much to move a bullet. At that distance it moves impact a lot. Wind speed is never constant. A different day will change how high you hold also.

Reminds me of, " when I was a kid dad would give me 3 bullets".....

this will pass to somthing new I expect it to be .277 however aka 6.8mm

in the late 80s early 90s you had to have a 7mm/284 something or you weren't cool , every gun rag was 7mm

marketing has grown so much since then that we are just constantly assorted with products every waking hour of the day nearly.

solutions that are products

everything is a buy this or service or subscription

it is all just intended to part you from your cash or worse put you in hock.

you see the marketing in it and that is wise.
it is also frustrating

hang in there let it slide off your back
in everything ask why do I need this? better yet ,I need nothing but food and what I want and maybe some food or medicine! don't let marketing influence my want.

KISS you need food , fuel , powder lead and primer and tires for your car when you wear them out probably not whole lot else

I feel like Mark twain could have had a great saying about marketing as he did about news papers then again since papers were the marketing arm of the day I think he did say it
if you don't read the paper you are uniformed if you read the paper you are miss informed.
even then you could see the marketing spin to some things I am sure.


want a fun game "market your worst attribute " you pick anything and think about the cons you see then how the marketing would sound for those cons sold as pros

once you see how nearly every marketer is doing just that you see through even more marketing hype.

Green County you need gas and oil or you won't be able to wear those tires out. wink

Food water and shelter. I add a way to defend those resources and all it takes to obtain said resources are all that's needed. Weather that's a job to make cash or the skills to produce it yourself.

Then we get into comforts like indoor plumbing, electric, and even ac and refrigerators. Now your getting into splurging categories though.

Some years ago now Cornell Townsend Whelen wrote Only accurate guns are interesting .The nice thing about guns is they don't get jealous. So I take the approach that in order to maintain my interest in guns and shooting I need to have more than one gun . I have my favorites but anytime I am inclined too I have other options. I like the idea of taking a different one out to the range or using it to hunt

I'm not sure anyone has guns. I figured most everyone just borrowed them when they wanted to shoot. Guns are just to dangerous to have in your home weather that home is a cave, tent or 7 bedroom 10 bathroom house. Guns are just scary unless at an approved range with trained and approved range officer.

I like the 6.5's and bought a 6.5 Creedmoor because I could get it in a platform I like. I would have purchased a 6.5 Swede or a 260 Rem IF there were rifle platforms available that I like. My only choice for a 260 would have been to rebarrel a SA caliber rifle.
I like the 6.5 CM and could care less about all of the ridiculous hype about it, and granted, yes it does get to be a bit much sick

I love my 6.5 cm, but I didnít have another gun that was even close to itís performance. I used a 30-30 for years with great success deer hunting. My blind now has several shooting opportunities to shoot 300+ yards. My kid started hunting with me and he shot a couple deer with my old Marlin 336 so I gave him the 30-30 and bought a 6.5 cm. Itís a great gun, but if I had a 243, 25-06, or 270, I wouldnít have bought it. It is an amazingly precise gun. At 300 yards I can get very nice groups out of my blind, but my longest shot on a buck so far is only about 200 yards. Which is about how far I was confident with my old 30-30, lolÖ.

So how many 6.5 Creedmoor owners actually wear manbuns and are cross-dressers?

Rumor has it over 2/3s but most are still in the closet.

I hear guys that shoot "short mags" are short in other places?

Man forums are fun!

6.5 has proven it's worth. So have many many others
