About gone but not forgetten

Well I was here. Looks to be two posts in 2019, with no responses. I was surprised it is still here. Best wishes to everyone.

Right now a dozen people online with nothing to say. Come on. This is "GunTalk"

I am guilty of aging out of serious Bullseye shooting. My drive has waned. But interest is still there to help others in the game. Meanwhile I seem to be returning to my blue steel and wood rifles. Remington 721, 722, 725, and Winchester 70 (pre 64 of course) and vintage Sako. Great rifles. I like a good Mauser too. I was 8-9 years old and shooting 30-06 sporterized Springfield. But right now the three mentioned are on top.

Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! I miss days of yore when people would be periodically posting in here because it seemed like a down-to-earth gun forum and wasn't overcrowded with BS you find in larger forms. How are all of you doing? I wonder about the likes of the Old Man and Greener, as well as everybody else.

Well, probably no one here to see this, but I hope everyone had a nice Christmas, and looks forward to a great New Year. I'm hoping Trump gets a landslide, and the Repubs get both the Senate and House. Those that don't agree, well that's okay.

My only major gun activity was getting a second NAA Guardian 32 in November. Back up for if one is in the shop, or held for evidence because I used it on someone, God forbid.

Ruger just came out with a .22LR LCP, and I'm hoping it prompts NAA to make a .22LR Guardian. Sorry, Ruger! I can't do a plastic frame, trigger, and guide rod. Or a mag safety, or trigger safety.

Happy shooting, everyone !!

Right with you Ruger22. On both the new year wishes and the landslide.

This place was a regular visit site for me before. I do not understand why it slowed way way down. Such a nice forum.
I often wonder if Bullseye is a known member elsewhere.

Hey Guys,
Hope everyone had a great Christmas & wishing you the best in the new year.

Still alive & kicking in ND. :banana: :banana:
I have the same feelings about this site. Used to be a daily, sometimes hourly visit. Now it seems like a monthly check in is all I get done.

New acquisitions: 3T S&W m19 for use in distinguished revolver. (had no idea I was soooo bad with a wheel gun), picked up a couple of Nelson conversions 5" & 6" to replace the Marvel conversions, Savage target in 6BR that I haven't gotten around to shooting yet.

Still on the hunt for 4 more MKII target pistols. My goal is to have 1 to give to each grandchild (9 & counting) when they show enough responsibility. I was full up but I keep getting blessed with more grandkids.

Hardball, I know how you feel about aging out. 10-15 years back I hovered at a 94.7% for about 4 years. Never could break into the Master class for 360 consecutive shots. Since my rotator cuff surgery 10 yrs ago, I'm mid sharpshooter level. Keep having uncontrolled foray's into the 5 & 4 ring to screw up my slow fires. Used to be my 22 scores would compensate for the CF & 45 scores. Now it's just the opposite. Went to the conversions to keep the same frame but the shoulder & jerking trigger finger cancels out any advantage they're giving me. Went back to the MKII's, tried a Walther GSP, Hi Standards, all with the same results. At this point I'm still going to visit with like minded friends and exchange pleasantries and personal insults about their shooting (we have a great bunch that gets along really well).

On another chapter, is anyone here going to Attabury instead of Perry this year? I would like to keep attending the National Matches, but am really PO'd about the move from Perry. Thinking I'll go to Perry & skip Attabury. Not sure exactly what caused the split, but Perry has been the home of the National Matches for 112 years. Camp Perry is synonymous with the National Matches in my mind & will not likely change. You know what they say: You can always tell a German, you just can't tell him much! :D :D

At any rate, best to all of you still here.
