Re: You think you have it bad?

A friend posted the Cat pic on Face Book. I just shared and re-captioned it.

We are out of cats, now, and don't need another one.

I'd like to get a dog, but, my wife keeps telling me "No".

Dang! You should get those nails trimmed, Whig.

You could go down a couple of shoe sizes!

Re: Vithavuori for the 30-40

'Donki' - You have the windage & elevation nicely adjusted with your Krag shooting to the point of aim. Very promising!

Did you notice un-burned powder grains in the bore or black soot on your fired brass?

'donki1967' - That is a very promising group!

Did your shots hit close to the point of aim?

'FredC' - Maybe you should get a higher stand and use a bigger projectile?

Re: You think you have it bad?

FredC, how about naming your fun little guy "Peyote Coyote"?

He certainly appears to be on something.

He probably received a shipment from ACME!

Re: You think you have it bad?

We had a wonderful Persian 'rescue' cat, that someone tried to kill with a hoe. We got him from a vet. The poor critter had many stitched-up scars, which had required his fur to be drastically trimmed. Initially, he looked like the "Cowardly Lion". He sounded like Darth Vader, as he approa...

Re: New owner with questions.

Don't be too hasty. Dremel tools often make things worse! If it were my model 1896 carbine, I would patiently wait and seek out an expert gunsmith/restorer, who can properly and almost invisibly patch those unsightly receiver holes. Hopefully a KCA member, who has had this type of work done will res...
