| Money Talk|| House Down Payment - TexasTiger34 on 3/31/14 at 4:43 pm|
I have about 65% of the down payment I'd like to use on a house purchase in about a year and a half. Right now the money is just sitting in savings with little to no earning besides the amount I add to it each week. I pulled it out of a few ETFs/Index funds 6 or so months ago but that was because th...

I've heard good things about Weber Genesis series but that's as far as my knowledge on this subject matter goes.

Caught this guy, probably weighed at least 132lbs, this weekend. Casted with a crank bait a little bit and then got it on first cast with a worm. I was pretty excited, sorry for the commentary and over CPR'ing of the fish, didn't want it to go belly up.

Does anyone here own one of these? Reviews? Opinion on which one you would buy?
Purpose will be for hunting hogs mainly. Range <150yds. Not sure if I'd even scope it.
Don't own any 30-30's but have shot a Winchester and Marlin and really liked them. Also heard ammo isn't too expensive.

My question is what pistol out there would you pay 12 bucks to play around with at the ran...
