Never try to outwit a farmer.

The best hunting story I ever heard was the time you and your cousin went and left the Copenhagen in the truck. Before you tossed your dip, he took it. Is that how you recycle in the South?

Buddy Hackett had a world-class gun collection. A few of them turned up here in town at a local shop, but they were way out of my budget!

... true, that, Jerry..... very, very true.....

... and 3rdPI, I remember telling you that story back in tech control one lonely night....... and yes, how damned desperate?....... I have NEVER wanted a dip of snuff that bad......

.... thanks, El Capitan..... I never knew that Hackett was a collecter........ givs me a bit of a better feel for him, I guess, knowing that.....

Weird thing. Dabbling at the Ruger website and discovered that my faithful M-77 had been recalled...well not exactly recalled but an issued warning. A screw must be replaced in the trigger assembly for safety reasons and the weapon should not be used until replacement is installed. Contacted Ruger with particulars and Ruger sent replacement screw and a hex wrench to replace it with in a very timely manner. Disassembled piece and replaced screw. Now, after 36 years of use I can safely hunt with it. Will sleep easier tonight knowing so...
