Re: Need a stock

I've been thinking of making one for the Bobcat I've got for
quite a while now. I've made a few stocks for other rifles, but it's been a long time since i've made one, so I might as well try it before get any older. :archer:

Re: New Bow

Nice Bow! The Grizzly has always been one of my favorate recurves. I have a 1970 Grizzly, and a 1968 super Kodiak. I shoot longbows most of the time, but those are the two recurves I go to when I want to use a recurve.
You can't go wrong with a Grizzly. Good Shooting.

Re: Feather Removal on Woodies

I just hit them with a hair dryer. The heat loosens the glue, and you can get a end started to peel, and by working close to the shaft, they will peel right off. I haven't had any problems with the finish coming off as yet. You do have to be careful where the ends are glued with a drop of glue, just...

Hi Cody,
Nice shot. Did he charge you? :lol:

Night Wing,
Bear did make one longer.
I've got a 1968 Super Kodiak 56# @ 28" 64 inches long.
It's a sweet shooting bow.

Re: my new cap and ball 36cal handgun

Cody,
You can order a mold and make your own
RB's, Or you might try getting a bag of 000
buckshot. I know a lot of guys use them in a
36cal rifle, but don't know if there big enough
in a revolver, as you use a patch in the rifle, and none in the
revolver. ooo buckshot is .350 diamiter.

Re: TC 45 hawken question

I've always used 70grs. of 3 F in my 45, with a patched RB.
Thats where the accuracy seemed to be the best. Every rifle
will have a load they like and works the best for that rifle.
None of the deer I've got with it ever complaned that the
load was to low. :)

Re: Turkey gun...?

Jim,
I don't know if they make these any more,
but I've got a 12ga. Traditions single shot
that I've taken Turkey, Geese, and Grouse
with. It's only one shot, but that's all you need.
Right? I've been happy with the way this one

Re: Bow scale

Greywolf,

I was going to use a pully system, but your right
about it flashing different weights. It would have to be
held very solid at the draw weight to work right. The spring scale
may be a better option.
Thank you for your input.

Re: Bow scale

Night Wing,
Ya, thats what I was wondering. I've never heard of it before,
just wondering if it would work, and be accurate. I have heard of
someone using a digital fishing scale, and they said it worked ok.
They didn't say how many pounds it went up though.
Thanks.

Bow scale

Has anyone tried to use a
digital big game scale to check the weight on a bow?
The one I'm thinking of getting goes up to 350 lbs.
Do you think it would work, and be accurate?

The measure I've got is just like the one's in the picture,
and mine is 50 gr when it is all the way down, and goes
up in 10 gr increments. So, it starts at 50gr's and goes up
to 120 grs.

Double Tee,

Greywolfy said "several years ago" , and back then you did
have to register BP handguns. Now they changed the law back,
about a year ago, and they don't have to be registered now.
