I didn?t even comment on this thread and he has to disparage the Air Force. And to correct you, I?ve never gotten a bruised shoulder from a .22, I fireit from the hip like a real warrior, I saw that on Rambo!!    :cool:

Remember I'm Air Force also

Hmmm, Bruised shoulder after a few shots from a .22...

Must be an Air Force guy  :shocked: :wink:

Oh really!  What is the largest thing you have shot off?

When you get up to ICBM we can talk!

Great movie.
My grandfather's rifle had a ladder sight on the tang but Winchester put a safety back there so I can't put one on there.

Yup. The 460 has a decent pad. IIRC 117grn RL15 and 400 gr Barnes TSX


About $6 a round

Thats a nice looking gun and round.

Thanks I may need to get a pad for this thing. Right now it only was a good old fashioned steel button plate

Reminds me of my shoulder after sighting in my 460wby


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Never shot a 460wby but I would say that the 45 70 isn't a round you go shot several 100 rounds in a weekend.

I know the loads probably weren?t as heavy but think about those old timers who used to hunt buffalo for skins. Recall that scene in dances with wolves?

That is what I was think 20 rounds did that what would it look like if I shot all day long!

is 9 out of 10 bad?

It looks like your gun is listed

Those are some impressive looking numbers for that big of a round. At the range the 1st few rounds I shot everyone kind of stopped and looked   :cool:

Whats with all the fur? Heck thats not bad, didn't even break the skin.

I like the finish also, my 30-30 has a similar finish.

Real men grow hair on their chest! LOL I still have full range of motion of my arm. What gets me is I also have a Henery Golden big boy in 45 70 and shooting it didn't cause any kind of mark. Not sure if it is the brass vs harden reciever or that the barrel is 2 inches longer on the winchester or both that caused it to kick more.

That?s a nice looking rifle, I like the wood & the discoloring of the action

Do you know if that will handle the hot bear loads? After viewing the picture of your shoulder it got me thinking about the bear loads I bought but never shot for our trip up north last summer.

Thanks, the wood and case harded reciver is why I always loved and wanted that rifle. I credit my grandfather with my love of hunting, fishing and outdoors. Not sure what a hot bear load is but that is from 49 grains of powder with a 350 grain hollow point sitting on top.

Growing up my grandfather had a several diffrent guns but the one I loved was his Winchester 1886 which my cousin got after he passed and sold for drug money some years later  :angry: Well when Winchester said they would make a reproduction of it I went to my LGS and placed one on order. Winchester was some what off on when they would be produced, I waited 2 1/2 years but it did come in. I don't like waiting! Took it out and shot 20 round of 45 70 now my right shoulder is black, blue and red but was total worth the wait. I guess that steel butt plate and 45 70 round was made for someone with no feeling in their shoulder or back in the day those guys shoulders could take a bunch more pounding

And all that is why I will not accept a mangement possition. I did my time in mangement in the Air Force. Had to sit down and teach a 19 year old kid how to keep track of a check book because he was looking at getting kick out because he would always overdraft his check book. Best thing anyone told me was my E9 telling me that I was not political correct to make E9 :cool:

Now all I have to do is keep track of myself !!!!

one way we will be going to or coming from Kokomo Ind my sister lives there. The other most likly Memphis my wife is a big Elvis fan and would love to stop and see Graceland. The Red game is the main reason we are going, we have been watching one of the player from middle school on and if it wasn't for the wife his mom and dad wouldn't have meet. Not sure about staying any place (kind of wish Wright Patterson was near) but the wife isn't much of a fan of camping. Her roughing it would be a Hoilday Inn!

Teenage boys should work fine Meth head 45 ACP works better. Taser are great but some people can fight through the shock and still keep going. Good side the X26 can shot the probs or you can remove the cartridge and contact shock the person. Bad side I have had to fight 2 guys that when I shot them one of the wires came off the probs and with out both in the guy no shocking effect. Just always have a back up plan. Please check local laws some places have laws about joe blow having police type equipment but in my book it is better to be judged by 12 in place of carried by 6

CIEMR / Christmas memories
« on: December 25, 2017, 03:59:56 PM »
Many years ago when I was a inflight manitenance technican on the Airborne Command Post (the airplane with the keys to launch the nukes) because of the mission of the aircraft we had some priorities with things. We sitting in the alert bunker a plan was hatched and the maintenance and radio operators went out to the aircraft fired up the radios and started calling remote bases, camps and forts and asked if they would like to place a call home. This was before Facebook, moral call and the like. Bring some Chritsmas joy to families a minutes at a time. Most likly the best Christmas I spent away from the family.

Anyone else have some milatry Christmas stories?

CIEMR / Military Retirement
« on: December 20, 2017, 10:10:11 PM »

Evening rant!!

Went to a military retirement ceremony for a guy that I supervised many years ago when I was in (I sure hope this isn't making me old). Good to see many of the younger guys from when I retired an man so many new faces, I wondered if their mothers knew that they had gotten out of the house. But back to the rant: why in the world for a military retirement would you need to print the words to the Nation Anthem  in the program? 99% of the members are or had been military. The guy that was retiring wife and kids are the only ones that I knew had not been in the military. If you are going to defend this country I would think you could sign he first verse of our National anthem (I won't start on athletes especially Olympic ones) maybe I'm just getting old and grumpy

Rant off

Don,

Thank you.

Bret was on a small kill team to get the people that planted the IED along that road. They inserted at night and once it started to get light they saw that they where expossed so the fell back to find a better place to set up and found what they thought was a safe place between an old mud hut and a almost 90 deg cliff. they set a primater but most of it towards the hut away from the cilff. Well those people came up the cliff and started firing killing 3. One of the soilder was able employ a morter on the bad guys as they went back down the cliff killing all of them. The other soilders told us that Bret was killed instantly. They told us that it was a 1 in a million hit, went in under his arm traveled through the chest and missed the body armor completely. Bret was able to save one of his soilders the week before his death when the soilder was hit in the arm during a fire fight. We draw peace from knowing that he didn't suffer, he was doing what he loved and he knew Jesus and is home with him now. Thank for your service I will look for your book and give it a read.

so very true, so many people try like Ben Franklin to write their own bible of just the veruses that they like and delete the ones that convict them or them don't want to see
I think Thomas Jefferson was like that as well...Or was it George Washington.
His personal bible actually has parts of scripture cut out of the page.

Now I always wondered what that did to the scripture on the other side of the same page...

I stand correted it was Jefferson and not Franklin. I must have damaged more brain cell then I knew

Thanks

My step son Oklahoma Army National Guard was also a fire fighter and 911 dispatcher when not called up. He was killed  9 September 2011, after 6 years we don't understand why it is hitting us hard this year just know that the Lord has gotten us this far and He will take us the rest of the way.
Do you know where he was in Afghanistan? Name of the FOB? Location? RC SOUTH or east? OR? What unit was he in?
Just wondering if there was any overlap...probably not
I was there until June of 2010 flying all over RC South and East, some missions over to RC West...

Bret was part of the 1st Battalion, 279 Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Brigade he was killed Zurmat District, Paktya province sorry but can't remember the name of the FOB he was at

Romans is amazing and cuts to the quick.

1 Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, [a]called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God,

There in the very first verse he lays out his qualifications as a pastor and apostle. Being a pastor is a Holy call for and not a vocation.

1958 was a good year. Yep still see the 135 sometimes over here by TAFB. Mostly the spook conversion though.

When I was started out at 22 a 24 year old airplane sounded so old now 58 isn't sounding that old. Big Safari jets can do some cool stuff

Welcome Steve!! I'm in Nor Cal by the way, even I avoid SoCal.

Looks like SD has been covered (with dust) but what 60 year old plane you trying to get running?

There has been at least guy here trying to help out Don with SD. I got a few parts from him for my sub-conversion, Lane.
I work in the KC-135 program office. The air force is still flay jets that came off the assembly line in 1958 :shocked:
When I was flying regional jets, I sometimes flew to Birmingham, Al where someone takes the old straight pipe motors off and hangs the new fans on that aging carcass. Did you folks ever upgrade the cockpit to some modern avionics? Or still just a big cat on the dash and a glass of water with a metal sliver floating for navigation?

When I started turning wrenches in the USAF they sported those, J 57 water burners smoked rattled and rolled. They have done a bunch of upgrades, even have a glass flight deck after all they want to fly these things to 2040 and beyond.

Yes Steve, Charles here heads up the support group for SQ D addictions/withdrawl. People like Ken hang around in this group as in general they like the idea of sharing their feelings. I believe he often vents about H losing the election too totally misdirecting the whole meeting. Pretty sure JR is attending as well due to his current residence of southern Cali and well you just have to attend these type of groups if you live in that state. Not sure who else resides in this group as I refuse to take the time to evaluate the group as a whole. These are just the rumors I have heard as of late...........
