Re: Rest in Peace .... Pydpiper

What terrible news. I can't imagine what his young family are going through. He was a great guy.
My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

Re: Al's Corner Store

He's in Antrim I believe. Seems to be a solid Excal supporter. Haven't had any dealings with him though.

If anything goes wrong with your transaction, I'm close enough to go pin his ears back for ya.

Re: BOOFEST 100 RESULTS

I saw Colton's fish and was impressed.

I saw Colton shoot the 100 and was impressed.

But what impressed me the most was when "peer pressure" was put on Colton to swipe Tom's fishing reel, and he wouldn't do it. That told me the true stuff he was made of, and his parents too.

Re: BOOFEST!!! ... On my Bucket list for sure!! :)

Gotta say Vic, this was my first Boofest and it did me a lot of good. Hanging around with great folk like them reminded me of how much these friends do for each other, and others. I've often said, if I won a million dollars the first thing I would do is go to Boofest. Didn't win the million, just we...

Re: BooFest 2017 photos

Great reminders of a fantastic gathering Monica. Thanks for sharing those.

And thanks to you, Tim and Ben for taking me under your wing and showing me the ropes. I enjoyed the 3-D shoot immensely, and fortunately for me, we didn't keep score.

I'll look forward to the next time.

Re: Big Shout Out to the People who Make Boofest Happen!

Got safely back to Ottawa from Boofest. Had to stop in Trenton overnight to recover and sleep. What a hoot! Also I'm a bit hoarse today, I don't usually talk that much, but it's apparent that many of youze are quite used to it, and a good thing too. I sure learned more by listening than by talking. ...

Re: new member

Welcome Ironeyes. There are lots of add-ons you can go for; scopes, strings, stocks, triggers, and a gazillion other things. String stops are a good addition. They not only take the twang off the string, but add to it's life by easing it's wear. Interestingly, I too shoot an Exomag 200 bought in 200...

Re: OT: Why do you kill deer?

Cause I love 'em.

Fried, BBQ'd roasted, sauted, grilled, poached, stewed, burgered, skewered, tartare, sausages, sharing with neighbours and family, enjoying one of the remaining good things in life.

Re: Need an American friend

Tom. Just do what I do. Have your purchase shipped to the UPS store in the US and A nearest your location. Zip across the boarder and pick it up. Just smile as you cross.

Re: OT: A Fine & Proper SCARE!

Scary indeed! By now it seems things are being taken care of and the outcome is looking good. Still praying.

Recoil reduction option B. If you can put a pillow between the butt and your shoulder, you'll get a little more 'eye relief'.
