Yessir, retained the original front, the rear is a Lyman #66 for Winchester lever guns. It fit the side profile perfectly.

The light laser makes it tacti-cool to boot! smile smile smile

Thank you sir! I'll have to find a Lyman for mine.

I have a red spotlight on my T/C Contender Carbine for night ops, so I will leave the electronics off of my Savage. grin

No new raiders last night, so everyone got a good night's rest.

Gentlemen
Thank you all for your reports from the various fronts of the war.
Here I have resorted to diversionary tactics. I had such pity for the drought refugees, deer things, that were resorting to using my grey water for drink and yard plantings for sustinance that I placed a feeder for their use just outside the perimiter.
Now the wily advisary waits until the bounty is spread for the refugees before making an appearance at dusk.
Several have paid the price for such boldness and my bird feeders are left alone.
The enemy appear to be greatly reduced in forces. I know not whether it is due to some beneficial rains that have fallen or the fact that to date twenty-three of their number have fallen to various methods of warfare.
Keep up the good fight

Sir; apparently enemy forces have been concentrating their activities well to the east of this outpost, as I've received no reports of hostile activities in our general area for quite sometime!

Cpl. Punishment,

Thank you for sharing your report.

The enemy may be headed your direction due to Gen. Cornpone's heroic efforts. They don't migrate fast, but they do travel.
We are still awaiting word from Maj. Fubar's sector, so they may be massing forces there.

Keep a vigilant eye, your powder dry, and keep us posted.

Death Before Dishonor!

Thankfully mother nature has opened her buffet just slightly.. allowing the pressure to be relieved for a bit but I full expect it to increase again within weeks.

Dispatch from the swamps in the south:

To all,

We have been getting lots of rain and the enemy seems to be satisfied to stay in camp with close in foraging forgoing any incursions to our area. Will stay vigilant however as they are sneaky little devils and attack when you least expect it.

Standing ready as ever in the swamps of Florida.

2011 thread.... sad to say, three people posting on that first page are no longer with it...from 10 years ago...

kinda tells about our own mortality..... at our age, how many of us will not be here in another 10 years from now...

I'm sure I won't.

sorry for the morbidity.... but those are three guys I knew and sure miss... the most recent, Ethan Edwards done in by Covid 19.

Rest in Peace, Big Buck 215, Mudhen and Ethan Edwards... you left behind a lot of good friends to go ahead of us..

The wife wakes me up one night and says there’s four coons on the porch and they’ve got the cats pinned against the sliding glass door. So I grab the AR and go out the front door with the spot light and the bastids hear me coming and vanish. Now I’m awake so I grab a beer and sit down as she says that they will be back and they were. It was time for a change in tactics so I decided on a frontal approach and I grabbed the Henry and popped the tube loose it raised a couple of inches and walked to the door. The big coon stood on three legs and shoveled cat food into its mouth with the other while starring at me from 2 feet away so I ripped the door open and they scattered as I jumped out bare footed mommy stopped at the step long enough to lose her brains. I jumped off the deck while racking a shell and hit the spot light as one of the cats was nose to nose with one of the coons in the middle of the yard. I guess he was tough now that dad was there and that one died which sent the cat hauling ass. Our Deck is low with only four steps down to the grass after I shot the second one there was a growl to my left and as I spun to the noise number three was about three feet away from my bare ankle underneath the deck(now that will get your attention). That one lost its mind as well and I racked another shell not knowing if I had another or not and looked for the last one. When I hit him with the light he stopped and stood up on his hind legs looking at me and bought the farm. The whole thing didn’t last much more than 5 seconds

I did remember this one. Several of them gone. Makes one aware of his mortality. Be Well, RZ.
