  10. was looking for a new home as it was waiting in a consignment store and I had made an offer on and didn't hear anything back so I forgot about it till yesterday when I got the call that my offer was accepted. It is a 2009 CZ 550 FS in 6.5x55 still in the box with rings and papers unfired. Still had some of that cosmo grease about it. My 1st full stock My worst fear is that when I die my wife will sell the guns for what I told her I paid for them.
  11. Finally got my new scope in for my long range shooting. Actually I had it on my CZ PT 22LR for a couple of weeks to see how that shot with it and now put it on my 6BR (Got another Sightron 6-24x42 comming to put back on the 22). Got out early this morning to get it on paper and sighted in. The scope is a Sightron 10-50x60 with fine crosshair & Dot. The rifle is a savage action with 28" barrel (don't know maker as I bought it used) fitted into a Manners stock. I loaded a number of various loads and found that it seems to prefer Varget the best. The loads are Lapua brass with Remmington 7 1/2 primers and 29 grains of Varget topped with a 105 grain Lapua Scenar bullet. This 100 yard 5 shot group puts the projectile right at the top of the inner diamond at 200 yards. Our range only goes to 300 yards so have to find another place that will give me some long distance shooting Should be a fun shooter with the pasture poodles on the far away knobs. and it's just plain fun to shoot. Still haven't been able to tag this one yet
  12. Bought a CZ 455 PT awhile back and had been looking around for a good scope that would focus down to 25 yards. this morning my Sightron III 10-50x60 come in so got it mounted which looks like a little overkill for a 22 and went to the range. It shoots good and getting better. Got 5 holes touching at 50 yards now just have to tighten them up some. I think something like this would look good my 6BR..
  13. My biggest nugget with GB2 was 5.56 oz. found in the tailing piles in Idaho. The nugget Steve found was laying right on top of the ground and could be seen. Maybe others thought it was a big bolt or flat can as there was lots of those out there. I remember he was all smiles as anybody would be after finding that.
  14. Finally was able to get up to the cabin for a couple days of 4-wheeling and some beeping. Looked around the draw for a new dig spot as the old digs seems to have petered out. Got the ML5000 out to give a go and woooeeep coil overload, even in the air, changed coils and same thing, the detector would shut down. Crap!! put it away and got out the GB2 with 6" coil and found a different out cropping of bed rock. Did a little scrape and in the 1st 5 min got a little beeper, picker, ant fart, as it was tiny. More scraping and another one. Was nice and breezy in the draw and the little dink's kept appearing. Was a fun couple of hours and this little spot produced 14 in all for a total weight of 1.2 grams. Going to have to work all the way around the rock out cropping to see what else it will produce and also try and go down hill a little more.
  15. You mean like this one. It is what he used to contact me
  16. Got a call from a guy yesterday up at the lake saying they have had some destruction in there yard from raccoons and wanting to know if I was interested in taking care of the problem. They saw three of then the night before. Knowing there were neighbors in the area I thought of using 22 CB Longs. Went to the range to adjust scope for the CB's and after shooting a few, got to thinking they wouldn't be enough power to dispatch a coon. So I took some CCI velocitors and my 10-22 build. Got there about 7:30, Neighbors weren't home so I looked around so I knew where the other houses were located and not in my line of fire. Was ready by 8:00 and by 9:30 the 1st coon comes in and I put the light on him at about 30 yards. One shot and he does a few flip flops and then down he goes. It was a big female. Saw 2 more but they disappeared into the bush. About 10:30 another one came in along the fence and stopped about 40 yards away on the back side of fence. I could see the wires of the fence and was hoping I wouldn't hit a wire taking the shot. The shot spun him around and I could hear him in the gravel kicking around. Went down to retrieve him and saw him looking at us thru the fence.So had to pop him again. Got up to the fence and he was still alive so had to hit him a 3rd time. Finally got a hold of a leg and took him back to the truck. Threw him in the back and started closing the tail gate and his foot was caught on the space between the tail gate and box. Pinched his leg good because he come alive again. Had to get a hammer to end it, tough little bugger. big male. Didn't see the last one so called it a night at 11:30. The guy was pleased that I got 2 after about 4 hours and wanted to know what he owed me. Told him I don't set prices, just some for gas money and what ever he thought it was worth. He went into the house and came out with a folded check in his hand. Handed it to me and I out it in my pocket. He thanked me and said he would call again if there was more problems. Got home at midnight and looked at the check. It was $200.00. 32 miles round trip, 4 hours setting and 4 22 shells, not a bad night.
  17. A friend and I decided to make a run for a ground squirrel shoot. Headed to a spot which is about 2hr 15 minute drive. We left at 7am and when we got there we had to find a station that sold gopher permits, Yes I said Gopher permit. Have to have one where we went. Following the ownership map on the Garmin we found a big open expanse that looked and reminded me of some prairie dog towns. Gophers up the ying yang as the little ones were out also. I had never on any videos or in person seen this many gophers in one area. We were both shooting 22's for the most part and I had a 17 HMR and Tom had a 204 as extra rifles. They were popping up so close to the car that they were just a big blur in the scopes. My best string without a miss was 14, we had multiple doubles and Tom got a triple. I would say I was shooting 8 to 10 gophers or more every 15 minutes or less. Shot nearly a brick of 22's plus about 60 17 HMR's. The shooting was utterly fantastic. Thought we got about 500 between us. We had a video camera with us but nobody to run it as we were to busy shooting. But did manage to get a couple of stills. We had to leave at 3pm as we had to be home by six. Chomping at the bit to go back.
  18. Finally picked up a used scope locally, a Leupold VX3 3-9x40 Compact. got it mounted on the new Anschultz 1416 D HB and went to the range to get it on paper. Took 10 different types of ammo but only got thru the Norma Match 22 and ended with this 10 shot group. Forgot to bring the cleaning rod to clean before changing brands and the wind was picking up so deceided to call it a day. Was shooting off the shoulder with a Harris bi-pod. I know it needs to tighten up a bit more but it will get better, I hope. 9 more brands of ammo to go thru to see what it really likes. Going to my 1st IR 50/50 shoot this weekend for something to do and will shoot in the Sporter class. Anytime I can get out and shoot is a good day. enjoy

  20. Very interesting if you have been there or lost someone in Vietnam. Cycle ride from Tomichi Creek off of Highway 50 near Gunnison, CO up to the Continental Divide, people have found this war memorial tucked away in seclusion. You won't find it on any maps. An old local at the Tomichi Trading Post said the Park Rangers keep it off maps...the story is that a Vietnam Vet somehow used a chopper to sneak the pieces in. This memorial is off a high plateau near Gunnison, CO and it is indeed up in the air (notice the only trees in the video are spruce/fir, only found between 9,000' and tree line). It is as much a mystery here as anywhere. This is really something else..video is about five minutes, but very impressive memorial. This video was taken by some dirt bike riders along the Continental Divide, who stumbled upon a Vietnam memorial in the woods. Whoever did it, put a lot of time and money into it. Evidently hunters and possibly some Vets must be aware of it as there are numerous 30.06 rounds and good luck coins on the ledges between the stones. Who built it and how did it get there? In the middle of nowhere! It's a mystery!! http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=axhZ0Tx2L4U wish I knew what all the writing says
  21. This picture shows what is engraved on quarter sized gold round. Top O Deep is one one side with prospector on the other 24k gold. and they weigh about .41 ozt. Nobody else has any of these. These were a special order for the Mine. So in the future as you cruise thru the net or every see one in a shop, would appreciated a heads up. Pass it around if you wish. thanks Allen
