Yea I got that 10mm 1911 as my bear gun and it’s actually a blast to shoot, not as much recoil as you’d think. Mutt had suggested I look into a 9mm for bear and from what I read the +p rounds can get that penetration your looking for on a bear and you can get more rounds in a magazine and more rounds on target faster then other calibers so it’s not a bad choice with the right ammo

Hate feeling like that guy but I’ve started buying steel shot when I can.

Not willing to jeopardize duck season with the way ammonia flying off shelves.

Wife got me 5 boxes of 2 3/4 the other day and today I found a case of 3” for normal case pricing! Even got a case and a half of trap loads so I can keep shooting vermin and clays.

I’ve got plenty of steel, but only a couple cases of target loads. That won’t go to far this summer. I just hate paying the high prices when you know they will come down once supply increases.

Haven’t paid high price except for rounds for the new pistol.


I normally just bought a case each fall and when I wanted to kill clays I’d grab a box. Now that doesn’t seem like a workable option!

I did some research and found my vortex BDC scope happens to align very well with hornady percision hunter ammo so I got some on backorder for 39$ a box which is 30% overpriced but so goes the capitalist market

I noticed that Rogers shotgun shells are mostly out of stock. I’ve got enough for 1 good snow goose hunt.

Yep that’s what made me start buying.

Wife signed up for email alerts when in stock but I feel like it will be gone in an hour!

Before doing the drawing for the traveler (of all years to have election fraud) I do have a discrepancy.

Kbooger and Chevy are signed up but I do not see the names on the traveler, did you guys have it?

You mean an irregularity, like the outcome being delayed?

Trying to sort out who the highest briber is? Or just weighing the options of who has the best return on investment to send it to?

No irregularities here, the election was done as prescribed by laws and regulations of a governing body.

Sounds like Hillbilly said he’s taking over the drawing next year.

Well with the season in the rear view and the ice fishing sucking nutz I want to keep my motivation to get outside, did some cyber scouting for beaver lodges to trap and built 3 mink boxes today... in the spring I’m gonna try trapping a good number of beaver lodges around where I tap trees (unless I find some open water around dams)

.... next fall I’m planning to trap a lot, muskrat, beaver, otter, mink, marten, fisher and bobcat, with the exception of bobcat I did learn that a conibear/ body trap is a kill trap so we have no regs on how often to check, the 48hr check only applies to leg-hold/ live traps

Not too much interested in the money since fur prices suck, more interested in honing a new skill set
