2016 Prairie Dog Hunt #2 - TigerOnThe Hill
Hey guys, As mentioned in the earlier post, I scheduled 2 prairie dog hunts in 2016. Hunt #1 went well. Unfortunately I had a last second work emergency so that I wasn't able to go on hunt #2. My friends who I'd invited on the hunt were able to go w/o him. They had a good time hunting the Rita Bla...

2016 Prairie Dog Hunt #1 - TigerOnThe Hill
Hey guys, I've got my first prairie dog hunt of 2017 in 2 wks. Making final preparations for it has caused me to reflect back on last years prairie dog hunts. I thought now would be a good time to report on them. Every summer I try to go on 2 prairie dog hunts. I usually invite friends who've...

re: Lafayette Area Gun Ranges that Rent Handguns - TigerOnThe Hill
Uncle JackD, Sentry looks nice. :cool: I went to Barney's Sun PM and shot for an hour. We had a good time. I knew they didn't rent the Shield, but we were hoping to handle it. When I talked to them Fri they had it in stock. Unfortunately, they sold it Sat so we couldn't handle it. My son liked th...

re: Reloaders, help! - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]The rounds will be used for long range shooting, out of a savage stealth. So it sounds like neck dies is the way to go. [/quote] Even when neck sizing for the same chamber, you'll eventually need to full length resize. After each firing, the brass grows a small amount so that it eventually w...

re: Savage Axis bolt actions - TigerOnThe Hill
Axis seems to be a solid gun. Be sure the gun has a top notch recoil pad (get a new pad if necessary). At the range use a "sissy pad" and ear plugs plus muffs. Start your young ones off w/ reduced recoil ammo....

re: Lafayette Area Gun Ranges that Rent Handguns - TigerOnThe Hill
Thanks for the help, guys. I knew y'all would produce. Barney's carries the Shield to sell, but unfortunately they don't have it for rental. Mainly 9mm Glocks (32, 43, 17 and 22) and Beretta PX4....

Lafayette Area Gun Ranges that Rent Handguns - TigerOnThe Hill
Hey guys, I'll be going to Laffy this weekend and would like to shoot some w/ a friend. I'd really like a place that rents handguns to shoot. I'd like to handle a Shield. Are there any places like this in the Laffy area? If so, which one(s) do you recommend? Thanks. ...

re: M&P Shield for wife...and my CC when we travel - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]I'll need an IWB for CC. [/quote] There are a number of good IWB holsters. There are some good Kydex and Kydex/leather hybrids IWB holsters out there, but I'm partial to leather. For a small, light gun like the Shield, a single clip holster has advantages as it's easier to put on and take of...

re: Thoughts on 325 WSM Caliber - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]Is the ammunition [b]easily [/b]available? [/quote] Good question. That's prolly the main drawback w/ the 325 WSM as I see it. What's available will also be expensive. On Midway, the ammo's running about $3/round. Of the 8 types of ammo on Midway, one had "mixed availability"; the others we...

re: I Bought a New Rifle Barrel - TigerOnThe Hill
[quote]20 VarTarg [/quote] I thought about that instead of the 20 Practical, but changed my mind. I'll probably get a 20 VarTarg barrel for a Savage Striker handgun some day. You're prolly aware of this already, but for your VarTarg, I'd suggest using Lapua 221 Fireball brass. I've been disappointe...

I Bought a New Rifle Barrel - TigerOnThe Hill
Some years ago I bough 3 Stevens Model 200 bolt action rifles in 270 Win for $180 apiece from Academy. A few years later I converted one of them to 221 Fireball. The Stevens is basically a no frills Savage w/o the Accu-Trigger. It was discontinued when Savage came out w/ the Axis. The gun was to be ...
