Hey Charles...
"... freezing fog.." That sounds interesting to me. I have never experienced that.
It might be a cool experience (pardon the awful pin) as long as it was short-lived.

Hope you have essential supplies on hand to last the duration. This has been a strange and bad winter for most of us in the southern states who typically only face a few bad winter days each season. The ground hogs around here got it wrong for sure. It looks to me like another 4 weeks of winter weat...

Several summers ago, my wife and I were visiting New York City.. (on my company's dime). Our tourist aganda included a ferry ride out to the Statue of Liberty. I was not expecting to have to go through a metal detector to board the ferry. They found my red, 1 inch long Victorinox (aka Swiss army) pe...

My concealed carry rig this winter is an SA EMP, 9 MM, loaded with Hornaday Critical Defense rounds in a Wild Bill's Concealment Fusion paddle holster.

Ruger 22, Thanks for the information. It was interesting to read / learn.
Quigley Down Under is one of my favorite movies, too.
I will suggest another for a 'down-under' great story: The Man From Snowy River.

That is a big list of new internal parts. And although Ruger's test fire was successful, they likely did Not use Federal bulk HPs. I had a strange 'hitch' when cycling the bolt manually in my Mark III 22/45 for a while. That was resolved by a comprehensive field strip, cleaning and lube session. I t...

bg3,
No argument here. A solid, bright, and operational nightstand flashlights is essential.

(Warning: off-topic again. Rhetorical question for the audience:
When was the last time you checked the batteries in your SD flashlight?)

bg3,
That is a very insightful list.
I particularly like numbers 2 thru 6.
And those of us who have... matured (well gotten old, actually) should
take note of #4 for our night stand / bedside firearm.

Stew, I have also noticed that the green lasers carry a premium on price versus red. I read a couple of articles in trade mags reporting that the green technology is a bit more expensive for the manufacturers. And the market demand / sales are tilted for the red. So for now, those of us with a prefe...

Well, we have gone a little 'off-topic' with this muddle about Greener's login woes. Bullseye, you do a fantastic job with this forum and we value you for your knowledge and readiness to share it... not your programming skills. So, Stew.. back on topic.

I will support the 'zona Hermit in that the preference is per the shooter's eyes. My old eyes prefer Green in all light. I cannot see red on black very well. One - perhaps obvious - comment regarding self defense handgun lasers is that the shooter focuses on the target... rather than a front sight. ...

Charles, Thanks for the follow up and details. I agree that $600 is a competitive price for a new rifle in this class. I am not a hand-loader, so I would default to manufactured cartridges. But .223 are not overly expensive. I can usually find them at around $0.40 cents a round locally. It is clear ...

Charles, You did not specifically say whether this is a new or "used" rifle from the gun show. It looks REALLY good if this is a used firearm. I do not own a bolt gun - yet - and this Savage model seems to be a good option. Especially since your criteria ("I wanted something cheap to shoot that woul...
