Re: Oh Heck Yes!! I Want One Of These!!

We've been chasing this dream basically since 1946, when pilots came home from the war and Popular Mechanix regularly opined that we would all have auto/aircraft hybrids in the near future.

Re: CV19 Vaccine

Vaccines have saved so many million human lives and prevented so much human misery since Edward Jenner stepped up against smallpox in 1796. I'll get in line -- and would do so even for a trial. Godspeed to the doctors and scientists working as hard as they can to develop a safe and effective vaccine...

Re: new gun?

Gunny, I don't even have that No. 1 in hand yet. :lol:
I briefly owned a very light double rifle in 9,3X74R, and boy did it dish out a surprising amount of recoil.
I think the No. 1 will be very pleasant to shoot, and I am already looking at a cast boolit mold for this rifle.

I threw common sense and thrift to the wind recently and bought a BSA Mark II International, and a Ruger No. 1 in 9,3X74R. That should scratch my single shot itch for a while I hope. 8)
