    WTB pistol

    Hey boys - in town for a couple days. Looking to see if anyone has a semi-auto pistol for sale. Budget is $400. Would like a 9mm or 40cal. Would love a Glock 17, but open. Let me know. Thanks wade 202450nine847

    Geez dude - STFU. You should have reached out to me via pm if you didn’t have a pistol with so many inquiries to “save” all the poor souls that I’m entrapping. If my answer wasn’t clear then I encourage you to take a 2nd grade level ESL class. Ever occur to your DA that most used pistols come with a chunk of ammo with a holster and buying used and mailing the gun through FFL is actually cheaper than buying new? No, you just can’t stop that simpleton mind of yours to think only you know the laws of purchasing firearms. Good luck to you - no doubt you’ll need it in life...

    WTB pistol

    I thought I was clear when I said I moved out of state 2 years ago which indicates I’m not an AZ resident any longer. I purposely added my number and have nothing to hide. I know how to buy a gun legally. Here’s a thought - mind your own business 1 person has added to this thread. Nothing but trolls on CWT anymore...

  10. So I have to start by saying I know very little to nothing about rifles. I've helped a lot of folks on their rifle hunts, but never got into it myself. My son was able to shoot a bunch of bulls with his rifle before graduating high school. His first bull was @ 78yds with a 7-08. He shot a couple more bulls with that rifle and we upgraded to a sako 300wm and that rifle was a shooter! He began to want to shoot further and further and became a really good shot. In order to continue spending time with him I eventually bought a rifle for myself. First time shooting a rifle for me in nearly 15 years. I was buying 5 boxes of ammo a month for him. We live 5 minutes away from one of our shooting spots so it was easy for him to set up and shoot. I enjoyed going out with him, but never enjoyed the shooting of paper much (kinda boring). For father's day last year he bought me a steel target. He took it out and shot it up a bunch before I went with him. The first time I shot steel changed my whole outlook shooting rifles. I was immediately hooked!! I was limited at first to 300-400 yards, but my boy was 800+ yds and consistently hitting the plate. After the last year and a half shooting I'm to a point where I'm very comfortable shooting the steel targets up to 650 yds w/ factory ammo (I still haven't started reloading myself yet). I decided it was time to turn a rifle (25-06 tikka) that I bought for my niece to javelina / deer hunt into a custom and so it began... Just like most of you, I enjoy reading the other folks' stories about their builds so I figured I'd share what my choices were. I started by reading a lot of online stories about who different guys chose to complete their builds and eventually went with Eric @ Axisworks and wasn't dissapointed. Here's the build: Action - tikka Barrel - Benchmark #4 1:8 twist @ 22" Caliber - 6.5 creedmore Stock - McMillan gamewarden edge filled and bedded Trigger - Tikka w/ Yo Dave spring installed Cerakote - elite smoke Brake - APA micro bastard Bolt -Fluted Picatinny rail 20moa Scope - Vortex Razor hd 5-20 Stock Tikka 25-06 - didn't shoot overly well. Well beyond MOA, closer to 2 MOA with factory ammo. After Axisworks did their part: Now, it's my turn to do my part. Bought all the different kinds I could get my hands on to see which factory ammo shoots the best. Each group was a different type of round. From right to left. Sig, Hornady, Barnes & Federal. Federal shot the best by far. 1.643" group @ 187 yds with federal premium 140gr factory ammo. With my son now in Greece with the Navy I lost my shooting buddy, but have been able to get out 3 times with this new rifle. Each time, she shoots better and better (maybe it's me!). After 40 rounds down the tube now I think it's time to stretch her legs! I drew a unit 7 rifle tag. I'm pretty excited to have a tag with a weapon like this. Sure does inspire confidence. Thanks to those who have helped answer so many of my questions. I truly appreciate your knowledge. Wade

    1st custom rifle w/ backstory

    Don’t recall the fed premium load. Ended up shooting the hornady eldx. Shot my buck at 250 yards. Was a tough hunt for me. I drove up there with 102 fever. I had the flu and strep throat. My eardrum ruptured the night in my tent before I killed my buck as well which was quite painful. It was a fork. He went about 8 yards from point of impact. Didn’t matter much - just wanted to fill my tag, make a memory and plan my move to Maryland!

    I’ve always cherished my own pics that I printed out better than those I purchased. Great idea and awesome pic!

    2018 wyoming elk hunt

    DIY wyoming elk this past September was very good to us. We went 3 of 4 and all of us had multiple opportunities to make it happen. It's tough to hunt and try to film solo so don't give me crap about the footage. hahaha! Hope you guys enjoy and one day have the opportunity to hunt Wyoming. It's my 2nd hunt there and it's a special place for sure... Wade

    2016 HONDA PIONEER 1000-5

    I'm moving to Maryland and will not have any use for this machine out there. It's currently sitting in elk camp which is where I'm heading later today. Text me if interested or need more info, pics, etc. I don't know the hrs or miles off the top of my head. I'd approximate 80 hrs and 800 miles so it's basically new. It's fully loaded with the following extras from the Honda dealer: Full windshield 1/4 windshield 4 Honda lights $15000 firm - will be off the market 11/30 (that's when I move) Trailer will be sold as well, but not until the side x side is gone. $2500 16' w/ 15 gal gas with electric pump & handle. This is a great trailer... Wade 9282766 five five 4

    2016 HONDA PIONEER 1000-5

    El Diablo - playcraft is the make. It’s a stout trailer. I’d have to look at the title for the year. Nothing is wrong with it. Tracks perfectly. Tires are all good. They come with covers as well. Headache rack is welded to the front of it. Storage box on hitch for additional space. The secondary rack with the gas tank is bolted down so it can be removed if necessary. Floor has tie downs, tire ramps and I added a 2x10 to separate the front area for storage. The front area has lights on the frame wired to a battery held in the front storage box which is keyed to lock. This gives you plenty of visibility if you’re unloading at night like I usually am. The gas tank has a fuel pump wired to the battery so you don’t have to take extra tanks of gas and the mess that usually follows. Hitch is 2 5/8”. Trailer has seen Wyoming and a couple AZ hunts this year. Just returned from Flagstaff. Text me if you want it. I’m making plans for the move. Thanks

    Go get ‘em. The Payson area is the worst for getting your stuff stolen.

    I don’t see they offered an LE in ‘16 so I’ll say mine’s a deluxe. It has the load leveling, LED’s, floorboard, bed extender, etc but does not have Fox shocks. To answer a previous question the pioneer 1000-5 seats 5. 2 seats in the bed can fold up for usage. Pretty slick design. A quick google search will give you all the info you can want.
