  1. What is the good or bad about these "NATO" loads? Any help is appreciated.

    1911 Information

    I must admit that I had one 1911 pass through my hands a few years ago. It was a Colt Delta Elite 10mm that I got from a friend who got in a bind while owning me money. Nice pistol but I wasn't interested in a 10mm as a shooter. Had the Colt gone over to make sure all springs, etc. were good shape by a gunsmith in Knoxville and gave it to my step-son.

    Not going to get into serious shooting. Just want a good 1911 to informally shoot.

    1911 Information

    I am a primarily a shotgun/revolver shooter. I would like any information and suggestions on buying a 1911 style pistol. I haven't decided on a 9mm or a .45 auto. I want a good, reliable pistol with a good trigger and adjustable sights. My budget on this is $1,000 or less. It will be used for shooting at the range primarily. Thanks,
  6. Nice shotgun. Two questions: What is the year of manufacture? Does it have a ventilated rib? Thanks,
  7. To answer the questions asked: We typically hunt fields 20 acres to 400 acres. Very few trees to climb (mostly Mesquite). Generally flat land. Tall grasses on edges some times. Also fields hunted over can be the wild native sunflower fields that are only partially bush hogged or cleared with very tall "weeds". Hunters are generally 50 to 100 yards apart with no hunters close by directly across the fields. You can generally shoot low birds in front of you but not down the line of shooters. We had about 30 to 35 "hogs" one day come through a 300 acre field. If not diverted by the outfitter with an AR would have gone near two hunters. A big boar attacked the truck of the outfitter when he was out scouting fields. A hunter with another outfitter was attacked by a hog, lost two fingers and generally cut up. It took 26 dove loads to kill that hog. I have thought about Buckshot or Slugs. I need to check with Oklahoma Fish and Wildlife to see about carrying them while hunting a migratory game bird. This is not east of the Mississippi dove hunting. Twenty-five to Fifty plus miles of travel from the meeting place, big fields, 2 to 40 hunters, so far have had Elk in the field and in the road in the dark, Hogs in the field, a Mountain Lion in the field, "domestic" bulls, a herd of cows in the road causing a predawn wreck on a 65 MPH two lane highway, wild hogs causing a cattle stampede through fences, multiple coyote packs howling at daylight and some years temperatures up to 113 degrees. And I have seen many instances where hogs have gone through fences and knocked down gates. I am more worried about a hog coming up behind me from another field or bumping one in the dark while setting up. A lot of the fences surrounding fields used for crops are pretty poor.
  8. I go out to dove hunt in south central Oklahoma each year for 3 to 4 weeks. Every year it seems like the wild hog situation gets worse and worse. Since Oklahoma has a reciprocal agreement with Tennessee on handgun carry, I am looking for a revolver to have with me while dove hunting. I have several .357 revolvers but wonder if I should look at a .44 Special or .44 Magnum revolver (or other caliber). I am looking for a revolver that would adequate for fending off a hog that is not too heavy or bulky. Any help is appreciated.

    All plastic shotgun shells. Wanda brand and many others.
  10. I go out to hunt doves in southern Oklahoma each year. Hogs are really tearing up the area down there. Ruining crops, knocking down fences, stampeding cattle, etc. One dove hunter hunting with another outfitter lost some fingers to a hog that attacked him. Took 26 dove load shots to kill the hog. We had a group of hogs (about 30) run through a 400 acre corn field one morning. This was after a big boar attacked the outfitters truck two days earlier. A dove hunt turned into a hog hunt (with a Polaris Ranger and an AR). I steered from the passenger seat while the outfitter did the shooting and had his foot on the gas. Don't worry, the other 5 hunters were at the other end of the field and we had a background of hundreds of acres shooting 180 degrees in the opposite direction. Otherwise a circus we still laugh about. Many of the hunters (including me) carry a pistol or revolver while hunting.
  11. Take a look at the Henry Single-Shot rifles. Very nice rifles.
  12. Want To Buy. Browning B80 12 and/or 20 gauge shotguns. Also interested in any barrels for these shotguns. Thanks
  13. Culver's food is very good. Butter Burgers and a great fish sandwich. And the custard is very good. Been eating at Culver's since first seeing them in the Midwest while traveling. The cheese curds are also very good.

    Go Tigers!

    The Alabama and Georgia losses are not embarrassments to the SEC. They are major embarrassments to each of those school's football programs. The embarrassments to the SEC were the teams that did not go to a bowl game. Oh yes, that includes the Tennessee Vols. The supposed "embarrassing Alabama team" beat the mighty Tennessee Vols 55 to 21 in 2018 in Knoxville in "Kneeling Stadium" (Georgia beat UT 38-17). That's right, Alabama beat UT 45 to 7 in 2017 (and UT didn't win an SEC game or go to a bowl game that year). Georgia beat UT 41-0 in 2017). How many years in a row has the "embarrassing Alabama team" beaten UT (12 if you haven't been counting)? An embarrassment is a team that lowly Vanderbilt beat 5 out of the last 7 years. UT again (and we are not talking about the University of Texas). Now that is an embarrassment.
  15. Get back to structured cardio rehab exercises at Chattanooga Memorial Hospital. Enjoyed them after my triple bypass and they sure make me feel better. Also help in keeping my weight down.
