    WAR in Kentucky!

    Whoops!! I must have made a wrong turn. I was looking for the principal's office, but it appears I wound up on the 1st grade playground at recess.

    The Good 'Ol Days

    I was searching for something else and found this topic. What a great thread. We need more like this one.

    I saw where you did just that on MM. After reading that, it's easy to understand why 9/11 is an emotional day for you. As one of the other members there said, "Great post." 👍

    Curious -- What do you want to be when you grow up??

    Agree completely. Although I didn't see this thread before he cancelled it, I think the reason he did it was because the first two replies had already started it down the side track of politics and conspiracy theories. From there it would become even worse. Earlier today I read the messages about the buck in the newspaper and saw where Tony mentioned starting a topic about legends and stories from way back. I think he called it a trip down memory lane. He decided against it because of exactly what you said -- the idiocy that seems to crop up in almost every message thread now. That's unfortunate. I would really enjoy hearing some of his stories from those bygone days when most members here weren't even born yet. In other words, we're the losers, not him.

    Hang in there, Tony. Illegitimi non carborundum
  8. I thought sponsors had their own sections and the classified section to advertise. 🤑

    Where are the crappie pics?

    Kurt Rambo used to guide. Not sure if he's still around, though. Good guy and knows what he's doing. If you're interested, I can probably chase down his old phone number.

    1916 Spanish 7x57 Mauser

    No. This guy had a small storefront and did nothing but gunsmithing work. No retail products for sale.

    1916 Spanish 7x57 Mauser

    Camelback was owned by Tom Barrett in 1970s. The daughter's name was Betsy, right? Knew him well and did lots of business there before he closed up. His no. 1 helper was a guy named Dave. He had a spotting scope set up to peer into the windows in the hotel across the street. LOL There was also another big shop that opened a bit farther to east, but I can't recall the name. I do remember purchasing some clay birds there, though. It might have been Shooter's Haven, which Forepaw mentioned.

    1916 Spanish 7x57 Mauser

    You gotta be kidding, right? 😁 That was nearly 50 yrs. ago, and I can't recall what happened last week. What I do recall, though, is that he was somewhere on Camelback Rd. or Indian School Rd. in Phoenix close to 7th Ave. He was fairly old then, so I'm guessing he's passed by now. And now that I'm thinking about it, it seems his first name might have been Harold.

    1916 Spanish 7x57 Mauser

    I bought one for $19.95 in the early 70s and completely sporterized it. I had a gunsmith cut and crown the barrel, work over the bolt handle and reblue the entire thing. I bought a Fajan already-shaped wood stock blank and did all the work on it myself. It turned out really well and shot great. The 7x57 is a nice round for deer and other game in that class, especially if one handloads. It killed my second buck and a couple more before I traded it 15 years later..

    What's your favorite CWT thread?

    Threads like this recently resurrected one that have some substance to them without the barrage of insults, name-calling and personal attacks that have become all too common here lately.

    You know what they say -- the customer is always right. LOL Black would have been great, as well.
