  4. Out of the Florida tragedy - Kipling would be proud of these guys

    We need more kids like these. Too many parents are not parenting. For whatever reason, some have left their children to the school systems for the parenting needs. The only kid I had I got 8 years ago when he was 24. Cerebral palsy and all kinds of other behavriol problems. He lived with me for six years. The son I never had. He shoots, hunts, socializes and is a real charmer at almost 32. He got a job on Fort Knox and works with Human Resources Command to help veterans and active duty all around the world. Lives on his own now. I’m so proud. He comes for dinner once a week. In his own words he told me last night. “Thank you for believing in me, being tough, trusting me and teaching me “ . I don’t think I did anything more than care and involve myself in his life. Personally, I found it to be very tough and made me understand parenting better. But the pay off is huuuuuugggggeeee,! Teachers need help, both from parents and from more security at the schools. And more programs like these two were in Salutes to them and their parents and other adults involved in their lives. It takes a community!

  11. New Shotgun

    JM Marlin made one too. Can be had and I’ve seen a few for less than a Henry not often though. Have a friend that has one, smooth and sweet. Also Rossi makes on for quite a bit less than a Henry. I’ve had several Henry rifles that were a disappointment and got rid of them. But I’ve also heard good about them. We can all get lemons sometimes
  12. Something to smile about...

    I went from cub scouts to Boy Scouts. Made it to life and then spent a very short period in explorers before joining the army. When my dad was stationed at Edgewood Arsenal I was lucky that the Boy Scout troops actively competed in NRA competitions with 22 rifles. I loved it. I’ve always had great respect for the organization and the volunteers like you, Hardpan. I salute you sir, for all the good you have done for young men over the years. It stays with us!

  15. Browning Hi power

    Two years ago when I was still in a position to buy, my LGS owner called me to tell me that a customer brought a box of handguns for sale. His mother had been a competitive shooter. In the box was a mint condition Hi Power still in original box with 3 extra mags. I ended up getting it for $600. Really good shooter. Sometimes you get lucky
