Anyone here use a red dot sight for the Marlin 336? I've got this 30-30 for hunting piggies in the brush and wanted to see if there were any suggestions on a sight for this gun. All of my shots are less than 100 yards...most less than 50....

Dear Ballin' OBers who go on Out of Town Hunts,
I'm flying to Idaho in December for an upland birdhunt and will need to bring my 20 gauge. I've got a trigger lock, an action lock and a lockable hardcase.
How much time should I allow for the extra security/declarations/etc?

Here's my not so subtle brag thread....
Took a week off to go on a long range trip (something I've done for the last 7 years). The trip always leaves out of Point Loma and heads south along the baja peninsula. We usually hit the offshore tuna grounds first then head inland for some yellotail, h...
| Food and Drink Board|| Kalua Pork - Hawaiian-ish? Any ideas? - DonChowder on 9/12/13 at 1:33 pm|
I'm throwing a dinner party as part of a fundraiser auction item in a couple of weeks. The theme is Luau so I need to curb my recent treament of the almighty pork shoulder to fit this theme a bit better so I need any help I can get.
I've smoked plenty of bone-in shoulders but I've always done th...

Interesting article. Seems well timed with the backlash over the NSA and our "reach" as a government.
| Outdoor Board|| 20 Gauge Pump - advice? - DonChowder on 8/8/13 at 12:53 pm|
I've been taking my kids lately to shoot skeet and do some target practice. While the target practice comes pretty easily to them, the moving target - not so much. I think that my 12 gauge is a bit to big/heavy for them. But they love doing it so I'm gonna buy them a 20 gauge.
Any advice on ...

So the other night I got drunk and went to the FFA Fair/Auction and bid on a goat. Now I've got a +/- 60lb goat that's headed to the butcher to be processed. I'll be getting racks, loin chops, bone in leg roasts, "breasts" (brisket cut I think), short loins and stew meat (presumably head meat).

I've got an 83 Toyota pickup that needed some new hoses. So I figured that I would replace the thermostat while I was at it. I got little Don to help me and he broke a bolt off on the t-stat housing.
So I've got an aluminum housing with a grade 8 bolt stuck in it. I flattened out the top of th...
| Outdoor Board|| 24V Battery Chargers on the Cheap? - DonChowder on 4/4/13 at 1:04 pm|
I recently rigged up my trolling motor to run on 24v instead of 12. But that basically makes my old 12v charger useless. I can always charge the batteries separate but I'd rather use a 24v charger instead of having to frick with the wiring each time. Problem is - they're dammed expensive. Cant fi...

If I was to "brandish" any kind of weapon toward the LDFW officers I don't think a hatchet would be to high on my list.
BTW, which one of our esteemed posters is this?...

Any of you OT guys or gals working as production operators or have some working for you? I'm trying to get an idea for the pay scales for these guys in order to get some of my guys some raises.

So my son and I are on the hook for V Day dinner tonight. We plan on making Lobster Thermidor for Mrs DonChowder and daughter. It’s kind of an old school dish that you don’t see very often so I don’t have too many ideas on how to go about it. Most of the recipes I’ve seen are using a basic bécham...
