Was in the local-to-me Cabelas' looking at the guns. On the used rack they had what I thought was a sweet 16. Turned out, it was to the basic A5/Sweet design but it was stamped "Rheinmetall&quo ...

Welcome to the wonderful world of drillings.

The date will be stamped on the barrels near the breech. It will be in 3 or 4 numerals, the last two being the year and the first one or 2 the month.

Plenty of birds in Maine.
Our #1 nuisance animal for complaints are turkeys, edging out bears gorging on birdfeeders and trash in the spring.

Still have snow on the ground here. And the maple syrup makers are still boiling down the sap.

I have had no problems with the Herters shells. But, defective shells do happen. I've encountered factory-loaded shells with wads turned sideways, shells without powder, and reversed primers (in .22 ...
