  1. Anybody looking for a higher end optic, EuroOptics has their Nightforce on sale for 15% off. These rarely go on sale. (along with lots of other scopes at different discounts) https://www.eurooptic.com/Nightforce-Black-Friday-Sale-2019.aspx
  2. Are you talking about the pawn shop/gun store on 64 on the East side of town? I remember somebody telling me the prices were decent. The reviews online are positive but at least a couple of years old. Look up Bang Bang Guns.

    For a scope, EuroOptics is running a closeout on certain Nikons, several in the 4-16x range and FFP (about $350). Thats plenty of magnification for hunting within a few hundred yards. I bought a scope from them recently and it arrived pretty quick. They are a popular place to get scopes on another long range forum. https://www.eurooptic.com/Nikon-Tactical-Closeouts.aspx

    How far out do you think you'll be taking shots? I use the ole .308 but I've looked at 6.5 Creedmoor a few times (not for hunting). 6.5 has less recoil, cuts the wind better and has less drop than the 308, but inside 500yds isn't substantially better. 308 has more bullet choices currently. There's a decent comparison on palmetto arms blog. That said, if you are only going out a couple hundred yards and like 30-06, get a 30-06. https://www.primaryarms.com/blog/6_5-creedmoor-vs-308-winchester-caliber-battle
  5. Sgammo sells the HST 50rds for $30. Not quite as good but better than other places I've seen.
  6. Yep, plain as day that pic says MA1. Definitely not a Garand
  7. I used Arbor Country Tree Service (Jared Pieper) to take down 2 decent sized trees and clean up several smaller ones. Price was good and he cleaned up the yard of all debris.
  8. Would it fit in one of those 6 pack tube style coolers?
  9. Since tomorrow starts the season again, I'm bumping this in case somebody missed it in the new regs like I did, but they changed the rules again on natural scents. Page 15 and 37 of the 19-20 regs says we can again use natural scents but it must have an ATA seal of approval on it.
  10. Does that mean it's a rough area or just that there's nicer areas to stay? Unfortunately my wife just told me she already booked it, so I'm kinda stuck, but can prepare accordingly.
  11. I'm planning a family trip to Chattanooga in October and it's been years since I've been out that way. We tend to like to rent cabins/vrbo since we have small kids so they have room to play. Is there anywhere /areas I need to avoid looking for a place to stay for a few days? My wife found a place East of Lookout Mtn. off 58 and St. Elmo Ave. that looks nice, but I have no idea about the area. Anybody have any input or better suggestions?
  12. RTIC is having a labor day sale, some up to 50% off. The trick to making a cooler stay cold longer (supposedly) is to pre-chill the cooler before use. When you're ready to use the cooler, put a couple of hard Ice packs in the bottom then cover contents with ice. As the ice melts, it re-freezes on the ice packs and extends your cooling time.
  13. Have you tried Gold Medal Match in your M1a? I have limited experience with M1's to know exactly how they behave with different rounds. GMM will group well enough to meet club requirements easy. If you don't want to work thru all the range levels, the club recommends participatingin a 600yds match.
  14. HSGI Riggers belt (no d-ring) with a cobra buckle has served me well for carrying a 1911 or anything else. The cobra buckle makes undoing the belt super quick/easy.
  15. The distance won't be there, but Shoot Point Blank has a long gun range. Don't know what their requirements are. That or go as someone's guest to MSSA.
