Now this is a thread that I could get behind. I'm a huge Gun Nut, hunter, relaoder/Caster and sportshooter.

Have a huge collection of firearms and enough reloading components to... well I have enough

Sometimes my hobbies plants/guns get crossed over at the bench.

This is the gun that got me into reloading and casting. Winchester 1894 'Alberta Diamond Jubilee ' Chambered I 38-55...
d1854b99e714b37392c731abbba4e367.jpg
at first I was paying upwards of $5 a round shipped.. figured dam there has to be a better way ----》 Then I started reloadong for every caliber I have. And I've definitely saved thousands over the years.

I've got a Sage 3-4 weight, 8 ft., 4-piece pack-rod equipped with a Galvan fly reel - and I tie my own flies. ;)

 

Can't say I'm a fan of posting guns and plants together ........ but you have some beauties in both camps so.....kudos.

I guess I'm just a crazy librarian like that - plants with plants, guns with guns, bullets with bullets, etc. Not expecting anyone to agree - just expressing a foible and wouldn't want our site to attract unwanted attention based upon image searches - and narrow-minded assessments of said content and imagery.  If that seemed clear - guns and drugs don't mix - .................me too. ;)

 

Be good.

 

BTW - I like that lever action Winchester. I have a Springfield model 1892 (armory stamp and issue stamp - 1892) Krag-Jorgensen. So we're in the same camp as far as enjoying fine things.  If you['re read the thread - my neighbor has a couple of tube-fed lever-action cowboy guns as well. Fun, for sure.

This is my brass from beginning of April ---》 All 2nd fired ready to be cleaned and reloaded again in prep for hunting season. This year the Old lady will be hunting with General tags and ill help her get her first rifle White Tail. Hope to get her on some archery elk/Moose or Mulies but we have been practicing her shot as of late. Over 500 rounds down her new guns pipe.

We are both confident she's ready for this late fall rifle season and I have a secret little spot for the little lady from my secret GPS logs.. passed on a nice buck last year.. and this spot is a little off the beaten path for most truck hunters.

Lol I too tie Flys. Uses my big game/Upland and migratory bird harvests for tying material. Been tying for about 15 years. Such a relaxing hobby like reloading usually dabble with a few Flys a night during the off season.


All my hobbies get smashed into each other weather I'm wrenching on the Jeep and potting Cacti or In the boat shed rebuilding vintage speedboats getting my early season garden started under lights, or on the basement man cave reloading, tying Flys or working on my attached Flowering/Veggitative gardens. It's all one and the same.

I see where your going with it not looking good for the site. None of the plants for me are illegal. All perfectly legal according to the law.

Love the lever action. She's a fine rifle. But my favorites are tje polish uzi or the WW1 German Luger dated 1918..

Definitely have some nice peices In my collection.

That Lee reloading press looks like a real gem.

I've used the RCBS "rock chucker" that my neighbor owns to make precision hand-loads. Starting to get anxious to spend time reloading again but work is just too brisk. The house is starting to look more like a hunting cabin than a dwelling.

I'm trying to figure out how to cool my schedule down and have been doubling and even tripling the value of bids...........yet folks are still jumping on the offers. I guess when this all cools off I'lll have plenty of $$$ to spend on materials. ;)

 

Can't wait to go do some shooting and fly fishing this year. I usually buy annual fishing licenses in two states to cover my bases.

Last Night's home roll session started off with the 30-06 rolling a tray full. Then moved on to some 38-55. Our Father's day weekend will be a mix of some boating, Jeeping and yes most definitely some shooting... for our shooting session will be conducting my 1st fire form of some 30-30 brass to 38-55. Been researching the process and have stocked a large supply of 30-30 brass for cheap to fire forum.

30-06 Springfield:
180Grain Serra Game King, Hornady brass (Full length sized and trimmed) Remington LRP, and Accurate 4350 @ 47grains..

Luckly I saw all these gun grabs coming years ago..... Been stocking this stuff for years. Not just ammo and reloading components.. wife and kids always laughed at me. I stocked everything. But have my ammo as components locked down tight. Completely self sufficient. Same with my plants completely Self-sufficient for my needs.

I'm a prepper through and through.

Did some work with the psl today. Shes shooting great after the shims. Shoots high and left within an inch so its doable. Got out to 200y np with a 100 zero and some compensation. 368e32f9bddc9814a571eafb9e6ed9c8.jpg
