Re: West Texas Hunting 2012

Hey Sherman--Hope u are still in the forum! Congrats on your assignment to Ft Bliss. I was at WSMR in another life (late 1980s). Great small game hunting (esp quail) on McGreggor Range as well. You should be allowed to hunt the missile range--some nice large mulies in past days, and a lot of country...

Re: Hunting in the Adirondacks

A big reason we love our Rem 8 & 81 rifles is nostalgia for simpler and, IMO, better times. Pics of hunting camps back in the day--esp. featuring our fav rifles--are icing on the cake!

Re: williams sights

Back in the day, Williams had an economy version of their receiver sights called the "5D"--stood for $5, so you know it was a long time ago. The only difference between the 5D and the more spendy Williams peep sight was the lack of "clicks" on the 5D. Not sure about current Williams sights---but if ...
