  1. Sounds like you got a good deal to me. Congrats on the new rifle!
  2. My neighbor and I bought the same gun at the same time (really good deal) and we broke one in the way you describe and the other one we just cleaned real well and started shooting. No difference in the accuracy at all.

    Have you tried the Hornady 15.5 ntx? Was there any wind or even a breeze when you were trying 75 yards? It doesn't take very much to push those little pills a few inches. This ^^^ They can be very picky about the ammo. Mine really likes the fmj and gamepoint in 20 grain and the 15.5 ntx, everything else is hit or mostly miss. Flyers are common and to be expected as it is a rimfire and match grade ammo is not available. Some of them also like to be shot dirty. After a thorough cleaning they can take some shooting before they shoot well again. 20-30 rounds is common for mine then I just use a bore snake.
  4. Shoot-it, Do you get many pics of snakes? Does anybody else get snake pics? I have never gotten one and I have some big snakes here.
  5. Nice Pics! I am surprised the serpent triggered the camera.
  6. That is pretty sweet! What an amazing gift for your wife!
  7. You earned that bad boy! Nice fish!

    Like SJ said here in Alabama most weapons and accessories are legal. The g19 is my carry gun when at home. It seems to work well on snakes.

    John, I had my Vet order the vaccine. I have to get three dogs done. Lucky for me I get the employee discount so it isn't too bad. They say it really helps the recovery process. Bisley, Good eye. It only had a few buttons and never did rattle. The top one had 8 buttons but I shot it up pretty bad because I could only see part of it in the thick brush and wasn't taking any chances at a couple feet away. Tom, It's your standard yellow axe caliber 220-221 Microtus, I have been looking at snake boots but haven't got anything yet. Going to Cabelas tomorrow to look some more. Shoot-it, Yep they are protected in Tenn. You can't even pick up a dead one from the road. I would rather I didn't have to remove them but I can't have my wife or dogs bit while on the trails. If I do see them below the ridge I let them be.

    Too good of a population. Silencer is in the pipe line John. I have one coming for the 17hmr as well.
  12. This summer I have killed two large rattlers on the property with the G19. This 50" one showed up when a lady moved in next door at an abandoned house and was cleaning up the property. Shot it up pretty bad and it bit itself trying to get at the rake handle I used to pull it out of the brush. I was walking a dog that has to be on leash yesterday and shot this one after the dog sniffed it's tail and made an odd snort. I took a second look and saw it's tail that he was sniffing. Followed it around to a ready to strike rattler, one and done. 54" stub to tail.
  13. Karl,Walt Betts here aka NVWalt.I'll be moving to south east Tenessee sometime very soon to Tellico Plains near the border.I see you are in northern Alabama.Are you near where I will be moving? If so maybe we could hook up some day soon and call a few critters in.I hope this works like a pm but don't know. Anyways please let me know if you do live within a few hours from where I will be relocating. Thank you, Walt Betts aka NVWalt

      Walt, That would be great. Calling is a lot different here with the terrain and thick woods during the summer months especially. Looks like we will be 3-1/2 hours away from each other. I think we will be able to get together on occasion. I am working on a contract that will put me in E Alabama and N Georgia from time to time.  I see you will be right next to Cherokee NF. Very nice they have a large variety of game animals.


      Good Luck with the move, I think you will like it in Tenn.

      Thank You, Karl Hagen

  14. Congrats on the new rifle! You made a good choice.
  15. Great Pics! What Bushnell camera are you using?
