You mind sharing how much you paid for the Finnlight, and where you bought it? I went into Spillway Sportsman a year or so ago to buy a Kimber Montana and then I handled the Finnlight and held off on buying. A year later I ended up settling on a Ruger Hawkeye Ultralight (7mm08) but ...

I'm a fan of the Browning Micro as well and have hunted with one for more than 10 years as an adult. I would recommend the Xbolt over the Abolt for the simple reason that I believe the bolt release button offered on the Xbolt is safer than unloading the rifle with it in the fire position as is nece...

Bear in LA - A friend shot a deer and came to pick me up from my stand to help him load it.

| Political Talk|| re: Should the govt pay 30% of the expenses for any business? - flyby on 8/16/13 at 6:56 pm|
The ripple effect or velocity of money is often given as the reason why these incentives benefit the state (taxpayers).
The argument seems to allege that this ripple effect only applies in the case of film related expenditures and isn't being measured against a relative basis of how it would rip...
| Political Talk|| re: Should the govt pay 30% of the expenses for any business? - flyby on 8/16/13 at 4:53 pm|
Why does the "ripple effect" only apply to film industry money? Doesn't Taxpayer-X's money also "ripple"?
If I am taxed less I will spend that additional money on basically the same thing that the employee of Celtic Studios spends their money on.
The only difference I can see is maybe one w...

| O-T Lounge|| re: Is Juban Crossing Now Dead ? - flyby on 6/22/13 at 7:09 pm|
The only way the JC project benefits the state is if it brings in additional money from outside the state. Of course it won't and will likely not be a fraction as nice as the proponents are making it out to be.
Unless it's going to be like Bass Pro and be a tourist attraction that people plan v...

With no film credit there would be little to no industry and thus no revenue.
