• Can you strip and resemble any gun or rifle?

    Best answer: Great question...and yes, I can do that with every gun I have owned or operated. It is always a plus when you are able to field strip and reassemble any weapon.

    Best answer: Great question...and yes, I can do that with every gun I have owned or operated. It is always a plus when you are able to field strip and reassemble any weapon. In this Internet / YouTube age, another thing I always do, is to research a prospective purchase and also download the manual and watch a video on how to do it properly. Almost every type has at least ONE little "trick" to assembling / disassembling them. Following this procedure saves time and stress. Hope this answers your question and have a super day.

  • I wonder if the bear meat is edible? and What do you think about hunting in general why so many people oppose it?

    Best answer: Many people eat bear meat in various parts of the world. I have not had the opportunity to try it myself, but being an omnivore, I suspect the meat will be greatly influenced by what the bear has been eating - which for a bear can vary between locations and time of year. On numerous cooking/travel shows I've... show more

    On numerous cooking/travel shows I've seen them prepare various bear dishes in Nordic countries and in Russia.

    EDIT: Sorry, didn't see the second portion of the question. Why do people oppose hunting? Lack of education and general common sense. Hunting is the most important conservation tool we have. The human population is growing, expanding geographically - and that isn't going to change anytime soon, human nature is human nature. Hunting allows us to manage animal populations to protect them from the effects of civilization.

  • Why do people recommend wearing long sleeves and pants when the mosquitoes, ticks, red bugs (aka chiggers), are out?

    Best answer: I suppose you will learn the hard way. Tick are not know to leave a host once they have jumped. Instead they beat feet to a place on your body that does not have bug spray - assuming the spray you use even bothers them. I was stationed with a guy who came down with Lime Disease.

    I was stationed with a guy who came down with Lime Disease. He went from a very active basketball player that spent 2hrs a day at the hoops to a guy who could barely leave his room. He ended up getting a medical discharge.

    It only takes one mistake in the wild to ruing your life. A wrong turn, a bear, a fall, or even a tiny bite. Do the smart thing.

    I got NVGs, with laser designator. Want to do some night shoots. The range is open 24/7, and have gotten permission from the rod & gun club which own the range....No one really knew if this is legal.

  • Firearms and shotguns how many of you people are familiar with this particular model can you tell me how it performs see the details?

    Firearms and shotguns how many of you people are familiar with this particular model can you tell me how it performs see the details?

    Best answer: That may be a Mossberg shotgun, but that is in fact NOT a Shockwave. A shockwave has a short barrel and to keep it legally not an NFA class shotgun does not have a shoulder stood. Mossbergs are decent shotguns, but the shockwave is generally useless except for a very close range as possibly a defensive shotgun. ... show more

Mossbergs are decent shotguns, but the shockwave is generally useless except for a very close range as possibly a defensive shotgun. The shockwave's lack of stock makes it difficult to aim and keep stable, to it ends up being a shoot from the hip gun.

  • Can single loading rounds into a bolt action damage the extractor?

    I have an old mossberg .410 bolt action shotgun, and it has an internal magazine that holds two shells, the mag is quite finicky to load and cycling the bolt to chamber the 2nd shell has proved the gun to be unreliable, and so the magazine is not really worth using, so rather I usually just set a shell on the follower or insert the shell into the chamber and close the bolt. This way saves time and is more enjoyable, as well as gun doesn't jam. But I got thinking of the way the bolt normally strips the shell off the magazine and it got me wondering if the way I load the gun could be bad for the extractor at all.

  • Hello camping enthusiasts, could I use my dry bags to put my food in, then keep it cold by keeping it in cold river water?

    So where I m going to be camping for long periods of time, there is a cold river that flows by, and because I don t have the capacity to carry a cooler, I was thinking I could turn my dry bag into a pseudo refrigerator for the food that should stay cold.

Has anybody ever rigged up a system of keeping their food cold by rigging something to keep the contents of the bag suspended at the surface of the water?

  • Would you do this trade?

    A co-worker of mine recently purchased a sig p226 elite in stainless and apparently he doesn't like it at all. He offered to trade it for my Beretta m9A1 and my wasr 10. I'm trying to decide if I should do this, would you?
