    Where to get euro mount

    Definitely check out Draysen Hatch, with Great Hunter Skullz. His "right hand man" is sketchy as heck 😜, but Draysen is as solid as they come!

    Recommended bow technician in Tucson???

    I've never been to Bull Basin in Tucson, but I remember when the former owner up here gave it the green light. I've heard it is run as great as the BBA here in Flag. Based on the reputation of the store up here, I'd highly recommend BBA in Tucson for any and all archery needs.

    Simms Wading Boots

    Size 10 Simms Vaportread wading boots with Vibram Sole. Bought wrong size a couple of months ago from Simms and just now tried them on last night in preparation for an upcoming flyfishing trip. I can't exchange them because they are discontinued. They've only been tried on for size and never worn in a river. Tags still attached and packing paper still in boots. Paid $180 +tax and shipping a couple of months ago. $150 and they are yours.

    Youth handgun?

    The short answer is, yes, youth can carry and use a pistol on a HAM hunt. They just can't buy it until they're 21. My kids and I are debating on the HAM hunt because they both want to hunt with my .357 revolvers. Go for it!

    "Teflon Don"....Lives On

    Thanks for that text! I needed that while I was in El Paso. My reply was genuine. I was taking my son to a place to unwind before the funeral activities started. We were driving in a part of town I hadn't been in almost 20 years, so I was trying to find my way. My son grabbed my phone and said "Lance shot a great pronghorn, dad!" He showed me the picture and I dang near wrecked. That's when I helped him craft that response. I didn't realize you were in NM, though. I thought you had an archery tag here, but I almost asked him to show a picture of the 6.5SS to be a smarta$$. Congrats, buddy!

    6B Nov Whitetail

    I live in Flagstaff, too, and love 6B. I'm heading out of town tomorrow for my wife's monther's funeral, but holler at me and I'll point you in some whitetail spots for 6B.

    Blue Loctite Drying Time?

    That's what I figured and I was scratching my head something fierce after that phone call. Thanks!

    Blue Loctite Drying Time?

    That's funny, because it was a guy at Vortex that told me I should never use Loc-tite on bases or rings when I thought I was having scope troubles. I ignored him and did what I've always done because I've never had a problem with blue Loc-tite and that was the first time in all my years doing this that I've heard that.

    Blue Loctite Drying Time?

    Speaking of blue Loc-tite, I was talking to a certain scope manufacturer customer service a few months ago and they told me part of the problem I was having was because I used blue Loc-tite on all the screws. They said it affected the torque and could cause bore alignment to be way off. I've had several top-notch gunsmiths tell me to absolutely always use blue Loc-tite with every screw (bases and rings) and I've never had a problem. Has anyone else every heard of blue Loc-tite causing the problems that the optics manufacturer described? I've been meaning to ask this for quite some time and this thread reminded me of it. Plus, I figured I'd give Lance a break for our deal of unlimited questions!

    First, can I print this so I can show my wife I was, in fact, correct once? 😂 I did the same thing for the same reason!

    NWTF Raffles

    Its that time of year again. Our Northern Arizona Chapter of the NWTF is raffling off a Mossberg Patriot in .270 w/ scope. We are selling 100 tickets for $10 each and all funds stay in our local chapter for wildlife, habitat, and our youth programs, including scholarship for a local high school senior. We also have the state-wide 31 Day gun raffle. Tickets are on sale now and they are 1/$20, 3/$50, and 7/$100. The drawing starts November 24th and runs for 31 days. Each chapter has an incentive to sell 300 tickets, so please consider contributing to your local chapter. Otherwise, PM me and we'll make arrangement to get you your tickets. The raffle was just officially announced today and we've had a few sales. For more information on both raffles, you can check out our chapter's Facebook page, or, like I said earlier, PM me. https://www.facebook.com/NoAZChapterNWTF/

    Honda 2000i Generator **SOLD**

    I'm trying to talk my wife into us getting it to go with ours. It doesn't have to be the companion to double them up, though, does it? I thought the companion model was only different in that it has the correct plug for 30 Amp without having to use an adapter. I'm pretty sure you can run any two Honda 2000is in parallel, companion or not.

    Forum software upgrade

    This is what I mean, Amanda. We need to be able to keep the riff-raff at bay! 😜 It was a self-imposed time out since I was being a smarta$$ about a couple of other things. But, yes, a timeout feature is definitely not a bad option!
