The refurb on my Savage Mdl 24 has come up with some intersting marks a 5P on the reciever & either TT or 11 on the bottom of the 20ga. barrel. I have a new butt stock on order from Boyds. Once that comes in I am going to the range for a test fire, to see if I have any other work to do on the firing mech.

One step closer to completion.
Let us know how Boyds works out for you.

They look like a first class company.

I hate the kind of cops Tom is describing.

I also dislike folks who think a rich guy should be allowed to own a gun, but not the guy that lives in a doublewide.

The 2nd amendment applies to all.

Thanks.

My concealable inventory is a little weak.

Got a .38 Spc derringer. (Only two shots, obviously.)

I also have a little Raven Arms .25 auto that fits in a pocket. (I've got a holster for it but it's a standard belt clip.) .25 auto is pretty darned light.

The only other handguns I currently own are 4” barrel service revolvers. Hard to conceal in the summer.

Get a .38 special or a CZ 82

You’ll be glad you did

The little Raven was my very first pistol.
I figured it was Ok for putting in an ear.

Its a POS but its better than nothing. It got me out of a car jacking in the barrio and it toasted a rattle snake while I was taking a pee.
I guess it’s paid for it self. It cost $40 way back when

We all know the .25 is woefully under powered, but I read an interesting article the other week that compared actual stats of all calibers.

It showed that 2 pops from any caliber were just as lethal.

For autos, I have been kind of interested in the CZ82. (Primarily because of the price.)

Do you carry yours? How about you 50?

I do carry mine.

I have lots of more pricy and powerful pistols, but I CARRY the CZ82.
Its compact, its accurate, its dependable, it’s potent.

The fact that it’s inexpensive does not detract from any of that.

Hey 50. Got a range question for ya. My spotting scope came with a tripod, but even when set as short as it will go without the legs extended, it's still too high to use from the prone firing position.

Do you know of someone that makes a reasonable (read cheap) scope stand that would solve my problem?

I used to rely on a 1911, but I found I often left it at home because it was to difficult to conceal (particularly in summer)

A gun thats not on you is worthless.

I concur.

One of the benefits of the permit is now I can instantly buy if I come across a good deal without having the background check crap, etc.

The CZ 82 is a fine gun. I will be carrying it come Nov. 1 (when our CC law takes effect)

You can do cheaper. The threads are standard 1/4-20. Cut a piece of 1X4, or 2X4, drill a hole and get a screw. Problem solved.

Take three to five old, large kneesocks and fill them with sand or cat litter in gallon ziplock bags. Tie the end of the sock in a knot. Stack them whatever height you need and rest the scope without the tripod. I use three then two atop the three like stacking logs.

Tom has a serious point.
If we abandoned the DEA and the ATF we could solve our nations debt crisis, and we would be no worse for the wear as to society’s miscreants.

Buy a cheap camera tripod head and mount it to a piece of plywood. Sometimes you can find an old camera tripod at the secondhand store for cheap, especially if one of the legs is broken or missing.
