Ah the circle of economics.
The plus is my daughter makes enough money that I don’t get hit up too often. :)

Speaking about the circle of economics(put in on credit),  I think  last vestiges of my masculinity just emerged with my purchase of a savage model 110 fcp hs precision 338 lapua magnum,  with 26 inch barrel and muzzle brake, before I plunge to the other side(feminine side that is).

Between my hubby and I, we have five firearms, but all for hunting. We only hunt what we’ll eat. Lol, up until two months ago, I owned a .22, .308 and 12ga, but then got hubby to take hunting course. Now he has a .22 and a shotgun.
We love this time of year. Small game is plenty - grouse and rabbit, bear, and of course moose. Unfortunately, two things I’ll miss hunting as we moved really far north, there are no deer or turkeys.

I wouldn't kill a food species for no reason, but I do enjoy plinking invasive species like the English Sparrow. They've virtually eliminated our native Eastern Bluebirds, and that's a crying shame.

Current score: Devlyn - several hundred. Sparrows - none.  :laugh:

Their revenge will be a sight to behold!

Like I said before Devlyn awesome thread.
Don't sweat it to much about those Savage mobs of sparrows, I think your the same age as I am. I'm sure you remember the movie, The 🐦 Birds. lol
 
Hi Nina
It sure does sound like you and your hubby have all the bases covered with your choices of calibers and a shotgun.
 And I see you also enjoy shooting a bow. Many firearm Gunners underestimate the killing power of a bow and arrow.
 The last thing I shot with my PSE bow was a real nice black 🐻bear from 30 yards. But you want to know what the funny thing was, that bear didn't make it nearly as far as the other two I shot with my .270. with my handloads of a 150 grain Barnes X bullet atop 58 grains of R22, giving it a velocity of 3050 FPS.
 But I have shot a heck of a lot of bucks in the 25 years living here but also many nice corn-fed bucks in the farmlands of Southern Michigan. I have a pic of a nice buck that my wife stuck with an arrow down there.
But running off of a phone I'll probably have to just stick it as my avatar for a little bit to let you see it.
The buck looks absolutely enormous and it is with it's swollen neck and nice rack. He also looks enormous because he went over 300 pounds live weight and my wife is like 4 ft 11 in and weighs 75 lb soaking wet.lol
 It's been a pleasure making your acquaintance and I'm sure we'll talk again in the future.

Hello Sonadora
Congratulations on your purchase of your Savage chambered in the mighty .338 Lapua Magnum.
 It sure does sound like a lot of gun for California but if your shot placement is hitting where you want it sounds wonderful and supports the BBB Theory (bigger bullet better)
 I personally don't feel under Gunned with my .270 or even my bow with any game in North America.
But I'm sure glad you got a muzzle brake on that monster remember about the potential 30% loss of muscle mass. lol
But I'm sure you won't have any problem with it. Isn't it funny that when we shoot our rifles from a bench rest we get pounded pretty bad. But when you're shooting at game it feels like a pop gun.
It's been a real pleasure making your acquaintance and I'm sure we'll talk again someday probably about gun stuff.

I wouldn't worry too much Katie about your daughter going to college and receiving 300 inches of snow in the winter. Michigan Technological University isn't too far from me and I've actually seen some bad Winters where they had to have a tunnel system between the buildings.
But just a little north of there, there's a scale size thermometer to show the record snowfall.
That was 390 in of snow which equates to 32 and a half feet.
And actually right now it's snowing hard to beat the band.yay!
All the best to you and your daughter

Hunting season is upon us may everyone's jams be non-existent and their shots straight and safe.

Love Tatiana

Thanks, doll! Megan has informed me that we can make a sparrow pie, keep your eye on the thread for this decidedly English recipe!  :laugh:

Hugs, Devlyn

Hey Tatiana,

Yea, I will get that lapua by the end of this month. Cali is something else. They make you get a firearms safety test for any weapon bought, legal in cali, and make you get a handgun safety test. I guess too many people were shooting themselves in the foot or others.
I myself am a former usmc mp, 5811, which the top stuff is ridiculous to me.
We use to call the top stuff, weapons safety handing procedures, among other stuff, that went under the big umbrella of weaponscraft and fieldcraft for military police. Now I have to brush up in how to put glass and zero the glass on this lapua and get my dope in it. Will eventually get around to put glass in it.

I just could not pass up on this savage 338 lapua, for $1300 it would be like passing on new, unused manolos blahnik stylish wedges for $100.

Nope, it was not going to happen, like when I got an ltr in 308 without the scope. Moneys tight, but not tight enough for a bargain Remington ltr at $800.

PS. Jr or the 338 lapua is my last weapons buy in cali, they don't sell Sr or the 5-10 rd 50 bmg in cali, just the 1 shot bmg.
