  1. https://www.tn.gov/twra/news/2021/9/8/cwd-positive-deer-found-in-henry-county.html
  2. I use dedicated uppers for 22LR. CMMG barrels/bolts with Black Dog Machine metal lipped mags. Nary a failure of any kind after many rounds. But I keep them clean also. 22LR is kinda nasty ya know. Side note .... If you've never built a rimfire upper, don't make the mistake of going into it thinking it'll cost less than centerfire. It won't. ETA ... For the reader at large ... Also note Handsome Rob's post above. IMHO, ammo choice is the key to .223/5.56. A lot of folks might only be familiar with 55gr FMJ. That's like maybe the WORST choice available for hunting and/or target shooting. It's good for "centerfire plinking", aka dirt clod shooting, I suppose. Not even then if you care about hitting what you're shooting at. Isn't the .gov spec for fmj like 4MOA? MANY choices available with MUCH better results. As always, YMMV
  3. Small frame .... 22LR, 7.62x39, .223/5.56, 6.5 Grendel All can use the same lower(s). You have hunting ranges covered out to 350 - 400 yards. You have target ranges covered easily out to 600+. Common ammo. (Grendel not so much)
  4. Considering squirrel hunting, it's worth mentioning here ... Once ambient temps get up to +/- 50*, using thermal to look up into trees can be quite tricky especially if it's a clear sky w/ bright sunlight. My scope will have a better defined image than the scanner will. (The scope was 2x the price) But even it sometimes has problems. The scanner sometimes simply isn't worth a crap for looking up. In my experience, thermal just works better in colder temps. Period Side notes .... Thermal suffers in high humidity. (Water in the air) It won't work at all if rain is heavy enough. And it won't work at all thru glass. ETA ... One of my favorite thermal stories to tell ... The dog treed once and we could find no sign of a squirrel anywhere. Then I walked around to the other side of the tree and saw that it had a split in it that was maybe 3" wide and 20' tall running up to the first fork in that tree. I looked into the split with thermal and could see the tree rat about half way down the trunk. I'd shoot just below him and he'd move up a little each time. Eventually I ran him out the top and we got him once he exited. Never woulda found him w/o thermal.
  5. AC72 has valuable info. I'm convinced he knows what he's talking about. In regards to your question ... I have a Pulsar scope. (QD mounts are important as well.) Also, the wife and I each have a hand held scanner. IMHO, the value of the capability alone is 2nd only to your weaponry. ETA ... i use the scope more than anything else to squirrel hunt with on a 22LR. Once the leaves fall, those little bushy tailed bastards aint gonna hide from thermal. In fact, I've been on some outings where thermal found more than the dog we had. The scanner has been a welcomed tool in finding deer after the shot is taken. They work the same in daytime as night.
  6. Wow ... thanks for that. When you get toward the end .... a lot of things start to seem a bit too "familiar".

  8. Nice Rifle! I'm not a prospect, but thanks for this, "I added a Saddle Ring Safety Delete from Beartooth Mercantile" I didn't know this existed. Ordered one for my own Remlin. Thank you again.
  9. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=B07SWKS65H&ref=nb_sb_noss I bought one of these for my Remlin. Goes well with this .... https://www.amazon.com/s?k=B0104J21V2
  10. Indeed a rarity nowadays! Guy had a Kenmore unit sitting there that was over $4K. Stated that he wouldn't recommend someone even buying that one w/o a protection plan. Similar to automobiles, there is far too much technology involved just to keep your damn food cold. A whole lot to go wrong!
  11. The wife and I bought a new fridge yesterday. From all the info we could gather over the last month, we decided the best route was to assume they're all junk and it's gonna break. We were pretty well told as much by a guy in a local Sears store who seemed pretty knowledgeable. So she ignored brand names, picked out the one that she liked the best, and we paid $189.00 xtra for a 5 year protection plan.
  12. My browser blocked 27 trackers on that foxnews site. Just sayin .....
