  1. #1

    Some of my rifles !

    Here are pics of a few of my rifles !



    That safe has 18 Ruger #1's inside !

    204 Ruger

    22 Hornet

    22-250 Ackley Improved

    220 Swift

    243 WIN

    6mm REM

    257 Roberts

    25-06

    264 WIN MAG

    270 WIN

    270 Weatherby

    280 REM

    7mm REM MAG

    300 WIN MAG

    300 Weatherby Mag

    338 WIN MAG

    375 H&H MAG

    416 REM MAG





    This one is mostly 444 Marlin's (think there 24 or 25 of them in there) , also a Marlin 45-70 , a Marlin 44 MAG . My Mannlicher Schoenauer 308 , Remington Model 7 in 260 REM and I think my pair of Savage bolt action rifled 12 and 20 gauge sluggers .






    These last two pics are of the same safe .
    It contains a good many period muzzle loaders from the Civil War and before as well as most all of our double shotguns . A couple M1 Carbines and any number of other things !

    Some pics of 444's with deer I've taken in the last several years !
    Most all of these were killed with bullets I cast myself also !

    The fifth picture below is of a doe I killed with my first 6.5-06 on a Mauser 98 action .
















    This one was with a Marlin in 375 WIN also using a home cast bullet .




    More with the 444 and cast bullets !





    This was the first deer ever killed with the Ranch Dog 432-350GC cast bullet . Shot this one during damage control shooting about 4 years ago .




    Shot this one with a Marlin 45-70 shooting a home cast bullet . Most all these deer were killed on my property behind my home . This is probably the nicest whitetail I've ever taken .



    Run of the mill buck taken during ML season with the Savage 10ML-II 50 cal .




    Two more I killed in about 30 seconds with another 444 shooting my home cast bullets .

    The thing that strikes me - no moderators? My hearing is too important to shoot a rifle without one. Not stalking with ear defenders on.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Some more pics .

    Buck I killed with the 98 Mauser 6.5-06




    Two Sika hinds from 2010 on the Blackwater NWR used a Savage 220 bolt action rifled 20 gauge slugger




    Sika hind from 2009 on the Blackwater killed with the Savage 50 cal ML .



    Whitetail doe from 2009 also on the Blackwater killed with the Savage 220 20 gauge .



    Mannlicher Schoenauer 308 with a doe I killed a couple years back .


    Six point Sika stag I killed in 1999 with my Knight Disc Rifle 50 cal ML .



    My best 6 point Sika stag I killed in 2005 on the Blackwater with my Savage 210F 12 gauge bolt action rifled slug gun shooting the Winchester Partition Gold Sabot slugs .



    My maternal grnadfathers old W&C Scott 10 gauge damascus gun , killed this doe at 25 yards with my handload of 12 "00" Buck pellets .



    About a week later we were doing a late year dove hunt and I was using the W&C Scott 10 gauge again .

    I worked this past spring with a trio of 308's and a 223 all suppressed , and all shooting sub sonic . Thing you don't understand is that it's a ROYAL PITA to get a tax stamp to buy a suppressor in the USA !

    Here are some pics of some the suppressed guns I worked with this spring and summer .

    Remington 700 TAC in 223




    Savage Model 11 Hog Hunter in 308



    Howa 1500 308 without suppressor attached and with a 10 shot mag .




    Group pic , M1A Springfield , Howa 1500 308 , Savage Hog Hunter 308 , Remington TAC's in 223 and 308 all for subsonic stuff .

    Quite frankly I don't want threads on the end of every rifle I own . I buy and sell quite a bit and that will kill the collector value and resale value of a good many of them .

    And furthermore it's illegal in most states in the USA to use a suppressed rifle . We can use them during the damage control shooting but not the regular hunting season in many states .

    Except for a Black cloud we have living ina White House in Washington DC it's overall pretty nice living in this country . I've spent a small amount of time in South Korea and Japan both of which seemed nice enough but not there long enough to look into the gun stuff . I have spent a great deal more time in the Philippines and while it isn't the easiest thing in the world or the most inexpensive but typically I can get most anything there I can get here it will just take longer and cost 2 to 3 times as much .

    I realize this isn't the exactly correct spot for this , But anyway this is something else i used to be quite involved in !

    I used to have two odl steam traction engines and a portable steam engine . Also a couple old steel wheeled tractors and 5 or 6 old single cylinder double flywheel pop op engines .

    This is a picture of the circa 1914 16-48 HP Frick traction engine I first purchased in 1981 . Took me about 6 months to reflue it myself redo the plumbing etc . I sold it about 1990 to a friend who still has it and this was taken at a show about 3 years ago .










    I bought this old Frick first and about 9 months later I bought a circa 1915 Frick that was about 14-40 HP . The bore and stroke on the one above was 8 1/2x10 while the smaller one was 8x10 . A year or two later I bought a Frick portable engine that was circa 1913 this thing had a bore and stroke of 5x8 and was about 20 HP I would imagine .

    My old single cylinder gas engines were all made by the New Holland company and were from approx the same time period as my Frick engines .
