New Gear

3 posts in this topic

What is it about buying new gear that makes you wonder if you will be satisfied with it? Here is my story...

Earlier this year, I started to purchase a Deer Rifle as I don't mind shooting borrowed gear, but everyone likes their own suff. I chose a Tikka T3 stainless on black 30-06. I recieved many pros and cons from friends and family.(family likes, friends criticized) Then it was down to putting the scope on it and received many suggestions from everyone on the planet. It was so overwhelming that I didn't even believe the magazine reviews anymore. I decided to call Nick at Optics4hunting.com and WOW!! I spent a few good hours and talked about options and differences among all of the manufacturers. We finally decided to go with the Bushnell 3200 Elite 3-9x40 with Firefly reticle. I can honestly say that I haven't been more sure about the purchse. He gave me his word and from what I have seen here it is honest. Well I fired the rifle yesterday and it was the best feeling to see my friends look at the target after 3 shots and say WOAH!! That is SWEET!! The 3 shots were 1 inch high center of target and about the size of a quarter apart. A big thanks to Nick.

Now if deer have a plus sign on them I'll be set.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
