Re: strangest thing you have ever seen

I live in NOLA...Weird is normal and normal is weird here. On any given day you could see something that would make people go WTF?! It's not my AO, but I lived in Alaska for a time with a mix-gender work crew. Local ladys would remind the girls with us that "The odds are good, but the goods are odd!"

Re: When is it time to bunker up?

That's a good question. When to bunker up is easier when it involves a tornado, hurricane, or nuclear exchange, but it's tougher when you are talking about a pandemic. I think it is probably an evolutionary process. You can do a lot of avoid exposure by shopping off peak, avoiding crowds, using the...

Finally got around to enrolling in and finishing CERT training (https://www.ready.gov/community-emergency-response-team). Mostly refresher information, but it was a really positive experience and I still learned new things. Would recommend it to anyone who hasn't already taken it!

Quick review of Rio Low Recoil shot and slugs: I like Rio Low Recoil shot. But I like Fiocchi better. Rio worked good enough. They patterned decently. I think better than the Fiocchi by an inch or two at 10 yards. But that is shotgun specific. I think the Fiocchi is a little softer recoiling though...

Re: The Coming Civil War

I'm trying to think if political parties in the USA is enough to start full out warfare amongst even 25% of the population. If that did happen, I still think a martial-law-national-guard-riot-police situation would cull it. Less than 30% of eligible voters even bothered to vote in the last election...

Do you think the shell holder would work on a non-wood (I forget the proper verbage) stock? I have a Savage 24F in the same gauge/caliber as your Chiappa.
