    Safari Shopping

    Same here. I spent my life wearing a uniform, and I just kind of expect a shirt to have epaulets. But I've honestly never used them in my civilian life. But old habits die hard.

    9mm or 45cal

    Yeah. .45ACP performance at 2 or 3 times the price. It could only make sense to a government official.

    9mm or 45cal

    Glock will still sell you a gun in that caliber. It's the Model 37. Although I think it was a solution in search of a problem.

    9mm or 45cal

    Whatever you are comfortable with and can control. One hit with a 9mm is more effective than 5 misses with a .45. I used to impress on students, "you can't miss fast enough to win."

    Safari Express rifle pic thread

    While you may not have need for an entire elk, elk meat makes a wonderful gift for special friends.

    New "mud"-splattered denim, anyone? Just US$425 to you, mate.

    I think it's absolutely great. Nordstrom had found another way separate stupid people from their money and leave them smiling. Kind of like the $85 leather covered rocks they sold last year. I'm sure there are a bunch of Norstrom execs getting a great laugh out of this. I can't wait to see...

    Very sorry to hear about your wife. Hope things are better here. There are some fine gun stores in the metro area. I have a hunch you may already have found some of them. And here in Oregon we can own all those "evil" guns that are banned in CA. The problem is there is a serious shortage of...

    Well now, . . . welcome to Oregon. I have good friends in Milwaukie. How did you end up in Oak Grove from California?

    Sarge, I don't spend much time here, and I'm mostly just a reader . . . don't post a lot. But I just noticed your location. I seem to remember you being somewhere in California. It's pretty obvious you're now in Oregon, in the valley. I spent 60+ years in the Salem area, and I'm now...

    Bush Jackets

    Well Sarge, I'm in a curmudgeonly mood tonight, so blunt and abrasive prevails. The problem I have with Peterman is they are long on hype and through the roof on price. Every time I read one of their descriptions I think I'm listening to a polyester clad used car salesman with greased back...

    Off in the morning!!!!!

    I understand that perfectly. I'm kind of in the same boat. While I live in the dreary Willamette Valley of western Oregon, I have my five acres of heaven in the high country of eastern Oregon, although mine lacks the log cabin. I'm envious. JP

    Is there a reason you don't reverse the rolls and live in Colorado and vacation in Texas? JP

    Classic vintage CANVAS TENTS

    Paddy, I think it's time you buy yourself a sewing machine, learn to use it, and become that someone. You might make your fortune. JP

    45ACP Revolvers

    I had one of those in blue years ago, and carried it regularly. Why I sold it, when, and to whom is lost in the mists of time, and I'm still kicking myself in the . . . . Actually, I don't even remember selling it, but I haven't seen it for at least 20 years so I must have. Old age has...

    Giant Pith Helmet Thread of Doom

    I've already planned for that possibility, but the refund has just appeared on my VISA account. And still no communication from Major. In any case, I'm finished with them until at least October 21, when the world ends. JP
