So many choises so little time. Sad

Atleast I'm not married yet. I wonder anyone think if taking a girl shooting on the 2nd or 3rd date would prove if she'd be ok with guns or not ?? Very Happy

Here's the plan, Dimitri

So you think you have found the right female? Tell her to get up at 5am, take her to the backcountry, hike a few miles, have her rustle up some breakfast while you tend to the fire. So far, if she is still with you, she has past the first premarital hurdle.

The second hurdle is when she shoots, skins and cooks up some nice rabbit or squirrel stew. Third hurdle is when it tastes really good. Fourth hurdle is when she cleans the pots/pans/dishes and the rifle. Finally, be sure to check her driver's license for age of consent.

good luck

I saw your misprint Bushy, I figured you knew better. Very Happy

Sheesh, doesn't sound like there are many people that use the 17 rem. I don't think it worked out as good as Remington figured it might. It does work great on gophers (Richardson Ground Squirrels to you U.S. Folks) at several hundred yrds. Then again they only weight 1/4 - 1/2 a lb at most. Very Happy

Yep I admit it I have one..........! I like it a lot. It is in a Remington 700 BDL and It is my go to deer gun. I load 117 gr Hornady BTSP's with %%gr of IMR 7828 and it is accurate and knocks em down pronto.

There are you happy, I fessed up. Now it's your turn. Very Happy

I have a .17 cal encore barrel, 17" long with 3x-12 power burris. I use it for fox and groundhog, works just fine. Most people just don't like the 17 caliber. The only to hunt varmints is with a handgun.

How about a 17 caliber handgun?



It's a 17 AH not a 17 Rem but, it's good on PD out past 200 yds. Evil or Very Mad
