A new debate drinking game

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020 ... al-debate/



How about we all drink a shot every time Biden or the Moderator are conveniently allowed to interrupt Trump and a beer for every time Biden is allowed more than 2 minutes to answer!

Re: 44 mag lever action and Barnes Bullets

I use 28 grains of H110 (or win 296) in my Winchester 94 which nets me an average of 2100 fps and will make clover leafs at 75 yards all day long. Its absolutely awesome on whitetail deer, hits them like Thors hammer.

They dont have to follow you around. All they need is a tip from some jackass at a range or even your neighborhood ,if you live where you can shoot, to report you.

Some wicked steel

It took me about 12 weeks in total but its finally done. 14" blade, 8" tang (pinned), and a 72" shaft. The blade is made from 5160 (1/4") and is shaving sharp. I am hoping to take both a bear and deer with it this year.
