  1. My grandfather, John Conroy- who passed over 3 years ago at 99 years of age. He tended to tell lighter stories about his experiences as a sergeant in the US Army's 1st Armored Division, from north Africa, up through Italy. Mainly interesting places he saw, or trading his cigarettes for chocolate and candy (he never drank nor smoked). But a couple times in my life, he talked a little of some tougher times and battles such as being pinned down for months in Anzio, or the battle against Rommel's 21st Panzer Division in Africa .
  2. Had it never happened, Michael Jackson's backwards dance would have been called something else. Proof enough I say.
  3. Wow, I think my copy may be signed. I can't recall. Should be worth $10,000-20,000K
  4. I'll dig them out. The 1885 was unfortunately severely damaged in a house fire many years ago. Serial #7xxx. BUT I saved it, minus the destroyed stock and forearm. Ive had work done on it (it is only valuable to me now). I will post when I get a chance, along with the 1899. As for books, The Ninety-Nine: a history of the Model 99 Rifle by Doug Murray used to be the go to
  5. Oh how I love the 99's! Shot my first deer in 1978 with a model 1895 chambered in .303 Savage. Every store that carried ammo back then most likely carried .303 Savage. I kept a bunch of boxes and have them to this day. I still have that old rifle, along with a model 1899 of the same caliber. I've traded a couple others I now regret letting go. Smoothest lever gun need ever produced IMHO. Factoid: In the movie Death Hunt, Charles Bronson carries a Savage 99. Cool. You never see them in movies.
  6. I am a big advocate of fair chase snacking so good news! I was getting tired of Goldfish.

    Bats!

    We're very near D.T. Franklin and have a small creek in the back. I have observed mink, fox, coyote, hawks, heron, turkey, deer, possum, armadillos, hummingbirds and yes... bats. Last 2-3 seasons we've enjoyed a pair of returning bluebirds.I don't know why, but I really look forward to seeing them.
  8. I stopped in a couple months ago. The guy who was cleaning out the place told me that after their break-ins (two I believe), they shut it down. Insurance deductables were steep and cost went too high according to guy who was there. He claimed Smyrna (and/or landlord) would not let them put barriers in front of store to block the drive throughs. Either way whoever it was stated they were definitely shut down. It was not the owner BTW. Couldn't tell you if he will move shop.
  9. Ron Swanson Burger: "It's a hamburger made out of meat on a bun with nothing. Add ketchup if you want, I couldn't care less"
  10. Ill give you a 20 for 10 minutes alone with that
  11. Yes - Still have my Mossberg 500 20 gauge. Christmas present 1976. My Father bought it new at a Holiday Gas station in Northern Michigan. I was on cloud 9.
  12. OK I liked this but only for the range!!! Not your old ass. I suddenly realized I should make that clear. All kidding aside, nice set up.
  13. https://www.youtube.com/watch[YT]%3Fv%3Dd1Cpc8Vw-2A&ved=0ahUKEwiV672P1Z3TAhWos1QKHZfvAgQQuAIIIzAC&usg=AFQjCNFPW00zjKjYSIcphRylqrd2RkbwSw&sig2=lHuxXUMJNu6hTvmNipFrHghttps://youtu.be/d1Cpc8Vw-2A
  14. Yeah... I'm not human. Going over to the Zombie Apocalypse forum I guess
  15. Hopefully fewer "out-of-stock" notes on websites soon!!!
  16. These were available at Kmart in the early 80's... do you still have the flamethrower attachment? Without it, the value drops quite a bit.
  17. Make sure you carry a back-up, large caliber firearm when you gig, cuz if you wound them, they will charge.
  18. My office is along-side the airport. I watched them fly right over my building just over our roof and tree line all day. Such an awesome sight. Many employees carried a chair out to watch throughout the day. One of our supervisors saw the accident... or what you could see of it at a 1/2 mile or so. We all watched the Smoke rise hoping he ejected. I agree a glass should be raised in honor of this hero.
  19. I was born in Michigan. If Memphis had an a**hole, it would be better than Detroit
  20. XxthejuicexX Inspired me to post this this new topic based on the inspirational musings of Ron Swanson. Feel free to expand.
