    What’s everyone hoping for...

    I'd sell my mother in law for a sheep tag.

    BLM Proposed shooting sites

    Until you get past Florence, there is almost no BLM land on the east side...and a lot of the stuff past Florence is wildernes. There is some used for flood control in the immediate vicinity of homes around the Mesa/AJ line and one small section out near the Peralta road. Other than that, you're looking at Forest Service and State Trust Land. So, that's why you aren't seeing anything for us east valley people in this proposal.

    Pig video 12 year old young lady

    Hornady did a short run of a 100gr interlock in 6.5mm. I've often thought about having a CZ 527 carbine in 7.62x39 converted to 6.5 Grendel, but I'd want to have a lighter bullet with stouter construction than a varmint round. A 100gr in the interlock or SST would be ideal for that application. Interesting to see that the 129gr still performed well out to that distance. Do you know how far the shot was on her mule deer?

    What bullet are you shooting out of that Grendel?

    I sent you a text on the 722.

    In the past, the portal allowed you to see it a whole week earlier.
  10. I have been gathering the pieces to restore a Rem 722 in 257 Roberts that came into my possession. The original stock had been cut to shorten LOP and then later glued back together. I decided to just start over with a new stock that my son and I could refinish together, thinking that it would be something special (albeit not fancy) that I could pass on to him one day. So, after many months I finally found a takeoff stock on eBay that needed refinishing, but otherwise looked to be what I needed. For those not familiar with the 722, they often came with a slot cut out of the side of the stock to accommodate a peep site on side of the receiver. The pictures on eBay showed the slot, and since my rifle is tapped for one, I figured it would work just fine. What i could not tell until the stock was in my hands was that on this particular stock someone had hand carved out the slot quite a bit. It looks very amateurish, but the sale was "as-is." What I would like to do is find a woodworker who can cut out a chunk of wood from the barrel channel and fit it into this slot. I'm planning to bed the action and barrel anyways, and I figure if we use a patch from the same stock I am more likely to have the finished product look right. Does anyone have a recommendation for who might be able to do this? I assume it would involve some epoxy work, maybe some pins, and then matching a bit of a strange radius. My gunsmith is a machinist. I want a carpenter. Open to leads anywhere in the valley, but the closer to the east side, the better.

    Looks like he's now accused of a separate violation too. This one is only a few weeks old.

    Still looking for encore pistol

    Good luck. They hold their value very well. You could try gunbroker, but then you're paying for shipping and transfer fees too. I've bought several used contenders, and only once did I pay less than $500, and it was a steal. Encores are generally worth more.
  14. Does by chance anyone have a takeoff from a magnum chambered ADL. A good friend new to hunting and guns ended up buying a used 7mm Mag that was crammed into a standard LA stock. As it heats up with each shot you end up shooting about 12 inches farther and farther to the left...haha. He does not have the budget to get a nice aftermarket stock this year, so he is looking for something to get him by. Looks like stocks man be had on eBay for $30 plus shipping. So if he can buy one localmy for that price and save the shipping then that's what he would like to do. Please let me know if you have something.
