Robdog I'm actually thinking of hiring Wile E. Coyote or Henry Hawk to put a hit on the no good son of #%*)@ so we can ride quicker next year. Do you want in on it?

I couldn't agree more. I've joined several boards over the years & stop being active on most because of exactly what you said. Here though we all get along well . This is by far the most respectful bunch of people I've encountered. Kuddos to all & Let's keep it that way.

I think I just got a tear in my eye.:D

Going for a ride today around middle Mississippi. It'll be a little refreshingly brisk with the temps in the low 40's. But we have to get one of the guys in our local GWRRA group away from the house. His wife has a surprise birthday party going and we must distract him for the afternoon. It is a tough job but at least they got a couple of the best to take care of it.

Just how big are the ground hogs in California? I know you have some awfully big liberals but are the 4 legged varmits that big??

Well I shouldn't go to the gun shop and say "whats the biggest ya got". But you'll have to forgive me im a old navy guy and always thought why use my 45 when a tomahawk missle is available. The old get a bigger hammer theory. But the weather is still real bad especially on the eastern side of the country.I feel for you guys . Hopefully it makes for a nice spring.

I understand the bigger hammer principle, I flew the AC130 gunships over the Ho Chi Min a few years ago. Now I just use a Sharps 45/70 with 532gr for deer and a Walther PPk/s 380 on ground hogs.

I prefer a Sidewinder Missile when their in flight. If they are still, a sling shot will do.
Let me see if I have the picture right here. Your dog (Ranger ) ran away and you uncovered the bike to go look for him. In the excitement, you for got that you had two foot drifts, so there you are just looking at that bike and wishing !!

45/70 . i've seen a ac130 gunship , awesome weaponry. Had my hands on some big stuff in my day also. Have you dialed in your sharps . had a friend had one and with blackpowder it could shoot about a 3 inch group at 100 yds . I shot with fcsa in ca until the laws changed but did a 4in group at 1000yds once.

At one time I could shoot itty bitty groups but anymore I'm lucky to be able to shoot. I was referred to as dead eye many moons ago but now I'm just shakey if that tells ya anything. The guns are certainly just as accurate today as they were back then but I'm not.


I still love the sport but now I do more coaching and teaching different aspects from building the gun and reloading to target shooting techniques.

Guess that is why I enjoy the two wheelers going down the road and being able to miss enough obstacles that we can reach the light at the end of the tunnel.
